Fashion Brand Comes Under Fire On Social Media For Using SIZE 2 Models To Sell Plus Size Clothing

Whether or not Old Navy will change the pricing on women's plus-size clothing remains to be seen, but the company's swift response is indicative of the power that a consumer outcry can have. In recent weeks, Victoria's Secret revised a questionable (and model-laden) "Perfect Body" campaign, while Topshop responded to feedback that its store mannequins are scary-skinny.

Calvin Klein also spoke out over the conversation regarding

Myla Dalbesio, one of the models featured in the underwear brand's "Perfectly Fit" campaign. At a healthy size 10, Dalbesio represents a large number of woman who are in between the normal measurements for plus-size and the size 0 or 2 fashion model.

Controversy over the use of the term "plus-size," however, was misdirected—Calvin Klein never introduced Dalbesio as their "first plus-size model." The confusion was likely spurred by social media and an >Elle interview that appeared online last week, in which Dalbesio stated: "It's not like [Calvin Klein] released this campaign and were like ‘Whoa, look, there's this plus-size girl in our campaign.' They released me in this campaign with everyone else; there's no distinction. It's not a separate section for plus-size girls."
