Check these out, too...
While they’re probably not the first to use this tactic (and
likely won’t be the last), we’re disappointed that the retailer continues to
perpetuate the notion of the ideal body as being thin, toned and tan. Aren’t we
ready to see some real girls rocking the clothes we’re dying to buy?
And as a sketchy side note, when you look at a series of the
CGI body/real head combination images—and I mean really look—it’s super creepy. Check out the images (and more of
the scoop) on adweek.com.

POSTED IN body image, Love your bod, In the News, social media
I totally agree. I'm not the skinniest person, but I'm not plus size. I never get to see any models my size in clothes in magazines, so how am I supposed to know if it looks good on me? The thing I hate most is when I order this fab thing in a catalog and it doesn't flatter my athletic body type at all! (for me it's hard to find lots of clothes that do in the first place!)
I wish they hired models of all different shapes & sizes

Leave the models out of H&M's mistake! Some go through a tough time wanting to be skinnier, and skinnier. They are looking to be how they feel young girls will look up to them! They may be really skinny for girls that tall, but they can't get a modeling job without looking like that because designers are pretty picky.

1)the "models" all have the same pose, so even if they looked real romething wouldn't look right
2)they look like they're missing bones in some places
3)the pictures look kind of like they just clicked and dragged them to the image, if you look at one of them closely, you can see that the pants sort of overlap the shirt.
if they're going to do that, why didn't they just use computer generated faces? or just hire *real models?

love TC247- Awww,hun,I know you are proabably just trying to stop any arguments,but please stay out of this. You did nothing and you shouldn't have to deal with it. She obviously isn't seeing my point of view and that's fine. She isn't worth my time. But thanks for caring,sweetie!

@heathuuuur~GL isn't saying that thin, toned, and tan girls aren't real. They're saying that that isn't the "perfect" or "ideal" image to everyone. You can't take a body type and label it perfect and say that everyone else looks wrong because they don't have that body type. Sorry if I seem harsh, but that's just the way I see it. I don't think you should be blaming GL for this... blame society if you're going to blame anyone, for trying to tell girls what "perfect" is. God made us all, and He made us in His image. He is perfect, so therefore we are all perfect. By saying that someone is ugly because they aren't perfect in the world's eyes is like a slap in His face. Anyway, just know that you're not being called fake because of how you look. You're beautiful just the way you are. Every girl should remember that!
