We’re all familiar with the 1989 Disney film The Little Mermaid—an iconic silhouette of Ariel as she spends her spare time sitting on a rock, daydreaming about what it’s like to be with Prince Eric if she were a human. Reminiscent of the famous bronze statue in Copenhagen, she would endlessly relax and observe land as she brushes her long red hair with a fork.
There is a similar new pose every influencer has been pulling and it has undeniably taken over their Instagram feeds. With feet intentionally propped up and hands either on rest or one up in an angle to mimic an S-shape with your body, it effortlessly makes your waist appear thinner while accentuating your bum to look fuller. Despite its obvious name, you can definitely do this pose even when you’re not on the beach! Whether you’re on the floor, your bed, or a chair, just sit down and arch your back so you can be ready to do the “mermaid” pose.
