Jennifer Lopez bikini mirror selfie on Instagram gave hundreds of women and even some men the idea dubbed the #JLoChallenge, sparking a movement for body positivity.
Health and fitness influencer Maria Kang started the trend when she shared a photo of herself on Instagram in her bathroom wearing a white bikini.
Kang ended her post by challenging her followers to post their own bathroom selfies and to tag three friends to share their own bikini selfies too. Almost immediately, the hashtag took social media by storm.
“Thank you @jlo for inspiring this spontaneous pic in a white bikini this morning,” Kang wrote on Instagram. “If she can do it, if I can do it, if thousands of working moms who come in all sizes, shapes and ages can do it — then YOU CAN DO IT!!”

This is (almost) 40! Thank you @jlo for inspiring this spontaneous pic in a white bikini this morning. Yes, my mirror is freckled with toothpaste (does your children only use your sink too?!), yes there are unpacked luggages on the ground, an iron, dog dryer and husband shaving somewhere in the background – but I"m getting it done! Not a celebrity. Not getting millions to look great in a movie (hello, Hustlers! 🙂 Or dating a hot athlete (although my hubby is kinda cute!) BUT, it doesn't matter… Own your story. Create your own accountability. Don't make excuses for your inaction. If she can do it, if I can do it, if thousands of working moms who come in all sizes, shapes and ages can do it – then YOU CAN DO IT!!! Post your #bathroomselfie and tag 3 friends who can bring it like #jlo #jlochallenge #noexcusemom #whatsyourexcuse
