What is the Period Challenge?

The period challenge involves (mostly) women using their bodies to spell the word “period,” with their bum and legs making the letter “p.”

People taking part in the challenge are taking a picture of their side profile, which forms the letter “p,” before editing in the rest of the word.

The more defined your legs and bum are, the more it looks like a better P, which is the aim of the challenge.

The Challenge uses the hashtag #periodchallenge, so if you want to take part, make sure to include the tag in your caption!
