I feel like this photo is still to black and white. People automatically want to write off the top girls as unhealthy and the top ones as normal. I agree with you, I would like to see the bottom photo representing curvy, skinny, tall, short and muscular. Plus, it bugs me that people say the bottom photo is more “real” than the top since i’m sure both photos are overly photo-shopped. Plus i’m pretty sure the women in the top photo are still real!
Our society just writes off really thin women as fake and not real. I mean I know a lot of models are unhealthy, but some of them are just naturally skinny, eat healthy or workout a lot. It is a double standard really because people have no problem calling the top women fake and too thin, but there would be a shit storm if someone called the bottom women unhealthy or fat.
My biggest issue is I feel like i’m not being represented. Where’s a place for a woman who eat normally, healthy and work out five times a week? I’m a size small, but still curvy and muscular. Dove get off your high horse and start representing all woman in your ad! Not just some overly photo-shopped somewhat out of shape women. (That’s just an assumption, don’t kill me)
Look at some of the figures. Is it even possible to have such a flat stomach with a body like that?
