The topic of models in advertising images has been a big subject as of late, and recently, one ad image has gained a lot of exposure and outrage, all because of a product description and a model that 'fit' the description.

The online shopping site, Wish.com, has been slammed after advertising a slim model 'modeling' tights that were labeled plus size. Many were quick to call out the fact that the model was definitely not 'plus size.'

What was the most bothersome part of the image wasn't just the model's appearance, but how they positioned the model with the tights - stretched over her entire body.

But it gets worse...

They pictured a different model with the plus-size tights. But instead of stretching the material all over her body, they fit one leg of the tights in both legs of the model.

Are you as confused as I am? Because this website is just so unpredictable.

It seems as if Wish.com is making a mockery out of plus size clothing and the Internet has some thoughts on how ridiculing the advertisements are.

Shockingly enough, over 1,000 customers have purchased the infamous, $3 'plus size' tights and some of them actually liked the quality.

Customers who reviewed the tights said: "Soft and the color is beautiful!" and "Everything was amazing!"

In my opinion, if an advertisement description is not correctly reflecting the image, then something needs to change.

Regardless of how the product actually performs, degrading and body-shaming other human beings is wrong and it's time for clothing advertisements to stop with the nonsense and be truthful and respectful in what they're trying to sell.
