​The Latest Celeb Hang-Up To Worry About? 'Armpit Vaginas', Apparently

There are pressures on all of us to look a certain way, and especially for women. Here's some must-haves, apparently: no hair in some places but perfectly tidy patches in others, spot-free skin but no make-up, be pumped full of muscle but have zero fat - AND have a bright white smile as the creepy, luminous cherry on top.

But to then find out there's still one other thing to worry about is, frankly, nothing short of a total piss-take.

Well, get ready to feel annoyed, as one celebrity stylist has now revealed there's yet another hang-up that people have started worrying about: the 'arm vagina'.

British stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray, whose Hollywood roster includes Emma Watson, Lily James and, formerly, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner, has said it's one of the most common anxieties her female clients bring up.

Speaking to the Times, she said: "Sometimes it's the weirdest part of their body. They say, 'I've got this horrible blah-blah', and you think, 'What are they even talking about?'

"The one that comes up all the time is the arm vagina."


The term - which is a reference to the flap of skin around an armpit, that's also exaggerated by tight-fitting clothes - was invented on a red carpet, which will probably come as no surprise.

Apparently its first usage came from the brilliantly blunt Jennifer Lawrence back in 2014 when she was interviewed by American presenter Giuliana Rancic while on the red carpet at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The then-23-year-old famously joked with the presenter about her appearance, saying: "I know I have armpit fat, it's OK... it's armpit vaginas."

And believe it or not, some people have grown so concerned that they're willing to go under the knife to make the flap of skin look less genital-like.

"A number of these requests have been from young, active women in their 20s, 30s and 40s, who probably notice it more from wearing sleeveless activewear," said Hagen Schumacher, expert consultant plastic surgeon at MyAesthetics, speaking to Metro.

"Patients asking for correction of this laxity often have other areas of concerns, such as droopy breasts or an overhanging abdomen, especially in patients with massive weight loss."


For God's sake. People are still battling muffin tops and receding hairlines, give us all a break would ya? Especially when it's the festive season, and all we want to do is kick back on the sofa with a Christmas film and morph into a literal pig in a blanket, eating anything and everything.

Sod off, Hollywood.
