Hey, clothing companies: Stop using straight-size models and thin women to portray plus-size clothing. It's insulting, degrading, and frankly, there are plenty of plus-size models who would do a much better job of it.
Wish.com is trying to sell plus-size tights by having straight-size models place their whole bodies in them.
Who could've possibly approved this?
If Wish was trying to show how stretchy the tights are, this would've been a fine photo to use. However, showing a thin woman in a garment meant for plus-size people is degrading.
Models are putting either both their legs in one leg, or stretching the tights over their entire bodies.
Could you really not find a plus-size model to model these, Wish?
Is this supposed to inspire us to buy these tights?
Showing how small a straight-size model looks in plus-size clothes is disturbing and insulting. It looks like a weight loss ad — so much so, that we wouldn't be surprised to see this photo floating around for a major diet pill or for some trendy new in-home workout machine.
Then again, if this is the image it uses to sell men's pantyhose, can we really expect much?
Better luck next time, Wish.
