Chopstick Legs Catch On With Yang Mi and Dilraba Dilmurat Leading the Pack

Fashions come and go, but with the resurgence of late 80s to 90s fashion recently, cycling shorts have made a MAJOR comeback in the catwalks with influencers and celebrities sporting the "new" trend. Kardashian approved, these shorts have gained so much traction with the fashion set since summer last year that it looks like the trend won't be going anywhere anytime soon.

While I am definitely not a fan - I still remember the cringeworthy hot pink leopard print pair I was sporting in first grade, and admittedly I haven't got the pins for it, celebrities like Yang Mi and Dilraba Dilmurat have taken to the biker shorts trend like a duck to water.

Both actresses have been spotted displaying what Netizens have been calling "chopstick legs" to their advantage. But let's face it, put these two in a potato sack and they'd still be able to rock it. If you fancy the chopstick legs lewk just like your favourite celebrities, proceed with caution. But maybe, just maybe, with the RIGHT outfit, the right attitude and the right styling, we too can all embrace this controversial trend.

  1. Am I the only one to think that those legs look really unhealthy? Like you don't see it when they wear dresses but the cycling shorts make them look anorectic to me.

    1. I agree it does look unhealthy. It's fine if you're just naturally skinny, but from what I've read a lot of mainland actresses follow strict diets to stay really thin.

    2. They are definitely really skinny but I don't necessarily think in an unhealthy way. A lot of Asians are just genetically skinny, and are very small-framed with tiny bones. My mom has a similar body shape (which I did not inherit!)--her arm/leg bones are incredibly thin.

      Based on Yang Mi's childhood/teenager photos, she's always had extremely long and thin arms and legs (and I don't think she was anorexic starting from when she was a kid). I'm sure there are celebrities out there that do undergo extreme dieting measures to stay skinny, but both YM + DLRB actually look healthy to me (assuming they are naturally small-framed, which I believe is the case). Neither of them are "skin and bones"--despite how thin they are, you can still see they have "meat" on them.

    3. They look unattractive in my opinion, I’m all for healthy looking, beautiful legs with fat around them, especially thighs, makes a woman look more feminine and sexier. Nothing more detestable than the thigh gap trend. It’s ok if it’s natural, you can’t help it but I had to skip Zheng Shuang’s scenes because she was disturbingly skinny. But netizens seem to hate natural fat on women, want them to be all skin and bones.

  2. It's way so much harder to lose fat around arms and legs if you born with big ones there aren't much you can do about it.
    Some people are just born with skinny arms and legs, might be genetic.

    It's not as dangerous as people with skinny waist. Skinny waist is the most anorectic thing, people will even bind it and cause themselves to have respiratory health issues. Remember there was this one challenge are you skinnier than a paper, it was disgusting.

  4. People actually like overly skinny ’chopsticks’ legs?? Like no natural fat around thighs? Oestrogen causes fat to get stored in thighs and hip area by the way. There’s nothing more beautiful and sexier than natural legs with fat around thighs. I hate how young girls get so insecure of NATURAL thigh fat because of this UGLY thigh gap trend and chopstick leg trend.

  6. I have a Chinese-Vietnamse friend who is just naturally skinny like this. She was tiny and bony looking from top to bottom. Of all the people I know, she eats the most but still does not gain a single weight. Whether it is genetic or not, some people are just born that way and we can't do anything about it. Just because you prefer someone with some "fat" around their limbs does not give you the right to judge those that are born skinny with little fat on them. I agree that sometimes "chopstick" legs look unhealthy and rather disturbing, I think that these two ladies legs are not that bad looking. They have a rather petite and long body frame, so their legs seems to be in proportion with their body shape. Also, pictures are deceiving compare to when you see them in real life. Just because it's not the beauty standards we hold outside of China/Asia does not mean that our perspective of "chopstick" legs and how a woman should look like are the universal standard of how a woman should look like. Yes, a lot of Asian beauty standard is ridiculous but when you're living in that country with such a high beauty standard, what can you do? Nothing much, really. It will eventually get to you and you'll become a victim of the crazy beauty standard because that's all you've known growing up and pressure from society. Do not body shame those that are just born skinny and those that choose to go on diets to "perfect" their body.

    2. @6.a.: “They look unattractive in my opinion, I’m all for healthy looking, beautiful legs with fat around them, especially thighs, makes a woman look more feminine and sexier.”
      This comment is literally saying that skinny legs are attractive and thicker thighs are more feminine and sexy, but you’re really out here saying there’s no body shaming going on? Lol

    3. Just wanna correct my typo: the comment says skinny legs are UNattractive

    4. Anon 6.b, it's not only that..."look unhealthy" "look anorectic" are pretty offensive and body shaming too.
      Just because somebody is skinny does not make them anorectic and just because somebody is fat does not make them diabetic.
      Should never say those things until the people confirm they ARE having health problems!
