Plus-Sized Leggings Are Upsetting Quite a Few People!

Amazon have really dropped the ball on this one and upset quite a few people in the process.

Normally if you see something being advertised for a ‘plus-sized’ people at the ever least you’d expect a larger and normal or just average sized model to show them off in the online pictures.  Amazon took a slightly different option.

Fitness trainer Betsy Abel was amazed when she spotted the picture whist doing some online shopping on Amazon and decided to shared it on Facebook.

“Here’s one for today’s ‘Are You Freaking Kidding Me’ file. Scrolling through Amazon looking at leggings… Get to the bottom and see this pair of plus size leggings… That’s fine, no shame if you need a larger size. So what the hell are they thinking using a slim model with two legs in one side??? Talk about disrespectful and being in poor taste. Like oh, hey, in case you don’t feel bad about needing a larger pair…let’s make asses of ourselves and show how two trimmer women could fit in these. Un-freaking-real!  I work with women every day who fight stereotypes that go along with being plus-size and unfortunately, they are bombarded with images that make them compare themselves to cultural norms,” Abel told Yahoo.

What do you think of this picture.

Is it insulting?

Let us know in the comments.

    I think body shaming is a massive problem in our society today this doesn’t help us larger women if you are anything like me I hate trying stuff on in stores and this image is disrespectful to larger women and you wonder why we can never try and look nice

    It is insulting why on earth would they think that is an acceptable way to advertise selling of the product.

    My thought is, if skinny model can fit in one leg, I can get my fat bum in those.
