Default ASOS's "Curve" Range

ASOS have a range called "Curve" which caters to larger women UK sizes 20-26 (thats US 16-22). Have a look at the models they use to advertise this clothing. Sorry but there is no WAY those women are size 20. They have skinnier arms and legs than me for god's sake and I'm a US size 6 on average!

What are your thoughts?

you're right about that, ha. I understand why they do it, they most likely think that larger women would rather picture themselves looking like that in the clothes. Ok, I would. there's certainly a fantasy/reality disconnect when it comes to fashion, movies, tv, media and the real world. and I think it creates skewed expectations, between people and personally. especially since we are so incredibly media saturated these days.

Thats kind of like the store Torrid.....if you look at their website all of the girls look really great. I'm thinking its a whole lotta airbrushing...
