I swear…I’d only use this feature for good…on the days and in the outfits where it was really and truly completely necessary.
Unfortunately I thought she looked just fine – perhaps even better – before. Between magazine depictions of skinny women, and now “slimming mode” I just don’t know how women deal with the pressure.
Especially when I’m sure that most guys don’t think the same way. Size is not the only component of beauty.
In this case, I’d have to agree – the “real” model on the left looks just fine.
But I think that the culturally created and perpetuated size/looks/beauty standards we have in North America aside, it’s still a pretty nifty technology.
Size isn’t the only component of beauty, but size *can* be a component of self confidence…regardless of weight or shape, we’ve ALL had our picture taken where the angle catches us in a way we don’t find the least bit flattering.
As a girl, but of course not speaking for all girls, I don’t think that I love myself any less because I’ve cropped out a funnily placed arm or made the light in the room more glowy than it was before in order to make a group shot work for everyone. They’re photos, not us…I’d consider this route far more harmless than plastic surgery ro obsessive gym time…
Thanks for the comment!
Although I have to say, I was seriously disappointed that this post wasn’t an ode to her jeans.
I did think about blogging in hiku format…but got lazy…lol.
