Where once it was about carrying the right It bag, now it's all about  the perfectly honed arms that are doing the carrying. Welcome to the rise of the new 'status' body parts. Whether it's the Deep V or  Mobama arms –  social status is now  being ranked by your commitment to the gym apparently. Here are the five ways to spot a body-bragger…

1. They now that the Deep V is not an item of clothing, but rather those muscular curves around your hip bones that you just can’t get enough of.

2. They are constantly boasting about their lunging prowess – the  healthy way to the perfect thigh gap don't you know.

3.  “Mobama arms? Babes, they should be called *insert surname here* arms.”

4. They're a certified Deltophile –  you’ve been sculpting those collar bones since they first stepped foot in a jungle gym.

5. ‘Bikini Bridge’ craze? Pah. They know it was internet hoax, but they instagrammed theirs all the same.
