Chinese girls’ new fad: A4 waist

fitness fad, a4 waist

A NEW 'fitness' trend encourages women to compare their waist size to a sheet of A4 paper (210*297mm).

一股新的"健康"潮流鼓励女性把自己的腰围比作一张A4纸。一张A4纸的标准尺寸是210*297mm。

The Chinese craze involves holding up the paper, which has a width of just 21cm, against the body.

中国女孩们掀起攀比风,她们纷纷拿起宽度仅有21厘米的A4纸来量腰围。

The Chinese internet users have claimed that the slim waist fad is a healthy and attainable aim.

中国网友称,这种“水蛇腰”健康,且不难做到。

One Weibo user boasted: "I'm a size smaller than A4. I'm A5."

一位微博用户骄傲地说:"我的腰比A4纸还细,我的是A5腰。"

Critics have slammed the bizarre trend for pressurising women to try to reach an unachievable goal.

有人批评这种奇葩潮流,认为该潮流会迫使女性努力达到不可能达到的目标。

An angry Twitter user said: "So are they insinuating smaller is better? Not cool to offend the girls who don't measure up in this matter."

一位推特用户很愤怒:"所以,她们觉得(腰)越细越好?对那些达不到此标准的女孩岂不是一种冒犯?"

Another commenter remarked: "A4 paper waist challenge? Total rubbish", before joking that they wanted to turn the sheet of paper sideways.

另一位则评论道:"A4腰挑战?狗屁不通!"并笑称“敢不敢把A4纸侧着来比?!”
