It’s hard to look the way a woman “should look”. While the movement of loving ourselves and our bodies no matter what they look like, is gaining momentum, it can be hard to get fully on board. It’s difficult to get the courage to look and the mirror, and when the courage is there, it’s even more difficult to embrace our muffin tops, our stretch marks, and the most popular female flaw as of late, the way our thighs rub together. We all know the story about the recently recalled Lululemon pants, where company founder chose to blame “some women’s bodies” for the flaws in his company’s yoga pants. “It’s really about the rubbing through the thighs,” says Chip Wilson, “how much pressure is there over a period of time, how much they use it.” Right, so as we ladies don’t have enough to worry about now we have to worry about the frequency with which our thighs rub together, because it might ruin our EXTREMELY expensive yoga pants. 

Following Lululemon’s epic media disaster, an image on Target‘s website turned some heads. A photo of a young model showing off a bikini from their juniors collection actually showed that part of her crotch and inner thighs had been edited out to make it appear that this young woman had a canyon between her thighs. The worst part of the Target gaffe was that this swim suit is marketed to pre-teen girls, who are already so easily impressionable.

Then, just to jump on the bandwagon, Old Navy‘s website featured a photo on their website of plus size jeans on a mannequin with an odd white space between the thighs. It almost makes me wonder if there was some kind of secret meeting between clothing companies to decide the newest way they could make women feel bad about their bodies. Just another item on the long and dangerous list that leaves us feeling inadequate, unworthy, sometimes downright ugly. It would be nice to see a clothing company show us what their clothes will truly look like on REAL bodies instead of perpetuating false ideas of beauty, that are ridiculously unattainable, I wonder if it’s even possible? What do you think?
