I think you should learn how to post a link surprise

Obviously an advertising gimmick though. Non of those models would class as 'average'. Different sizes yes but never average. Certainly not those who have lost limbs.

Not one of the Ladies up there are average.

All are really pretty.

There is one model who is bustier than the average fashion model.




However her skin is still perfect, in proportion for her body, and has the most lucious lips.

The same is true of the girl in the red bikini, perfect skin, toned etc. also really pretty.

I fail to see how either model is average.

The same is true of the other models there.

They all have perfect skin, really pretty and photogenic.



Different, but not average.
Riding on the Gotterdammerung. Down and down she goes. Where she stops no one knows.

I normally don't like big girls (ironically because I'm huge myself) but I have to admit for some reason I much prefer that model on the right, in fact out of all the models in that article I think she's the best looking.

I think they're all pretty, and that plus size girl is the loveliest of the lot. I don't care if it's genuine 'let's support regular people' or a marketing ploy, these things don't affect whether or not I buy from a company, it's just nice to see a positive vibe on the subject. It's also refreshing to see a proper plus size model on a big company's ad, i.e. in proportion, pretty-faced and good with expression.

I'm not convinced by the girl on the right. Too Photoshopped.She does not look like she is really holding the skirt. Also her arms seem a lot thinner in comparison to her legs and stomach ( Which looks manipulated too)she is clearly not in the same photo as the other girl so its impossible to really tell what she looks like.

Yes and the leg looks at a funny angle.
Pity because the photo is not doing her any favors by looking so fake.

I'm not seeing any evidence of wholesale photoshoppery here, and am pretty sure this is not a composite image.

Ok you are right. A google image search lead staright to her facebook fanpage. There are mainly  modelling pictures but there are also selfies and candid pictures.she looks a lot better in her holiday snaps than in this picture.Her names Jada Sezer.

The consumer wants to see models who they like doing whatever they want to see the model doing.

It doesn't matter one frigging toss whether The Committee deems the model to be only "average".
