In the latest trend to hit Chinese social media, women are posting photos of themselves holding pens under their breasts to show that they have firm and ample chests. The new trending topic has 1.24 million views so far and thousands of women are participating.
Some women are taking the idea even further and are posting photos of themselves holding larger objects under their breasts, such as water bottles, makeup brushes and more.
The first post appeared on “Weibo” which is the Chinese version of Twitter. The hashtag was #carrypenunderbreast in Chinese. The photos carried taglines such as “only real women can do this” and “a new standard for a goddess.” The trend started in Japan and quickly travelled to China via social media.
