When you’re buying clothes online, you probably want to see what they look like on a real person.
But Boohoo has been criticised for using models for their plus size range who don’t ‘look bigger than a size 12’.
Talia posted a picture on Twitter, showing two plus size lace bodysuits, modelled by Anna Fitzdorf.
She added: ‘When will Boohoo realise this is not plus size?’ and received lots of responses.
The online fashion retailer said that the model they used, is a size 14/16.
A spokesperson said: ‘At boohoo we are proud to offer clothing to suit every shape and size and the model in question is a size 14/16, not a size 8/10.
‘We want every woman to be able to access great fashion at the best prices, and we continue to focus on developing our plus size and curve, tall and petite ranges.
‘We work very closely with several model agencies to ensure we have a diverse range of models on site who promote responsible and healthy body images.
‘Our aim is to use models that reflect different body shapes and sizes to ensure that our brand continues to celebrate and promote diversity.’
The model previously told ITV that she’s a size 12-14.
And when the brand was criticised on Instagram for using Fitzdorf in 2016 for the same Size 16+ range, she said she had used pins when wearing their clothing before.
The post said: ‘It’s me on the picture, and I wanna say that I fit the test for plus size as good as the straight size models fit their size.
‘I have to use pins sometimes but 90% of the time the test size fits perfectly so please try to find correct info before you put things out.’
