, a 27-year-old fashion designer in Bristol, England was pissed off. Very pissed off. One of her winter shorts designs was cruely posted on the website Wish.com. The image shows a petite-sized model with two of her legs in one pant leg. What a disrespectful low blow.
In a bid to call out this nasty website, Christina Ashman
posted a picture of herself on her Instagram
and Facebook accounts, wearing a small skirt with the waist stretched around one of her thighs.
She stated on Facebook, “I don't have any formal qualifications in marketing, but if plus size ladies buy shorts based on how one leg looks on a whole petite woman, then maybe smaller ladies will buy skirts based on how the whole thing looks on one pretty thunderous thigh."
She regretted the fact that the fashion industry is constantly trying to send out the message that people should feel bad about their bodies, and she’s doing whatever is in her power to fight this.
Have you ever come across brands sending out body-shaming messages of any sort? What would you do in protest?
