LIVING through the coronavirus pandemic has completely altered the way we live, with our movements reduced, gyms closed and food shortages in supermarkets.

As a result of these changes, many of us have gained some extra pounds in the last few months, and the latest trend on TikTok has people embracing their curvier figures.


TikTok users have been sharing photos of themselves at the beginning of 2020, contrasted with their larger frames in December.

A woman posting under the username meazyc333 shared two contrasting selfies from the beginning and end of the year, the first of which showed her with a flat stomach and slim limbs.

By December, she appears to have a wider waist, softer stomach and fuller limbs.

She captioned the clip, "Anddddd… that’s okay," and the post has received thousands of likes and comments.


Alek Nieberlein shared his own 2020 transformation, showcasing the change in his body from muscular and defined to larger.

He admitted he can no longer fit in the overalls he wore in the first clip as they are now too small.

People have showered Alek with praise in the comments section, with one writing, "it's a body that carried you through a pandemic so no worries."


Joining in on the trend,TikTok user Selena Trevino demonstrated how her body went from muscular and gym-honed to more curvaceous.

She captioned the video: "celebrate your body always because diet culture sucks!!"

As we told you previously, TikTok star Chloe Xandria shared a video documenting how her figure has changed since January and received death threats as a result.

Sharing the clip with her 249,000 followers, the American influencer wrote: "Choosing to appreciate the body that supported me in a global pandemic."


In an attempt to "normalise normal bodies", Chloe posted a mirror selfie she took at the start of the year where she's wearing a pink crop top and ripped jeans.

In a separate video, she explained: "I have gotten numerous death threats for posting this, as well as so many nasty comments about myself and my family.


"I have turned the comments off on my video. I want to thank all of you who have shown me so much love and support. I will continue to fight to normalise all bodies."
