    With statements like this, it's no wonder so many young girls have eating disorders and body image issues. Is this seriously supposed to be representative of all female shapes? Wat.

    So women are
    - paler and skinny with a brunette pony tail
    - swarthier and skinny with a brunette pony tail
    - skinny with a blonde pony tail

    I see....

    Haha.

    It's similar with a lot of pro-body-confidence campaigns. This is an extreme example, but some are similar, just more subtle - I remember Dove irritated me a few years ago because their 'love your body!' thing was basically a 'love your body... if you're not obese, you don't have acne, you're white and you have flawless hair' thing.

    And are owned by unilever who own lynx.

    I'm guessing you've seen their adds.
    The only similar add that I've seen worse than those was the "1 million" one.

    That said all annoy me for animal testing as well.

    That ad is actually referring to the butt shape. They're so people like me that suffer with what one calls a 'ghetto booty' can buy jeans that fit everywhere, not just everywhere-but-the-waist.

    To be fair, the Dove ads do actually feature varied women of different sizes, races, hair etc.

    When I was googling to get those Dove pics I found an awful one from Victoria Secret.

    Boohoo.com's facebook was similar this week. Had an album on "how to dress for your size" and the skinny models featured in "apple size" were also in "pear shaped". There wasn't a curve to be found between all the "hourglass" models.

    Although after many complaints and "i've seen more curves on a ruler" Boohoo said they're trying to "create new examples" which just made me think they were secretly breeding hourglass shaped women in their secret little lab.

    You are taking the whole thing out of context, it is a levi's ad for their new range of jeans that caters for women with varying levels of buttock projection! So whether you are a slim size 8-10 or large figured size 16-18 you can still have a flat versus curvy derriere. It would cater to your shape rather than just your size...pretty cool huh?
