Women of all sizes took to social media this week to express their anger at clothing retailer Boohoo for using models that were not heavy enough to advertise a plus size swimsuit.
“Anyone else majorly offended that this is a ‘plus size’ bikini on a ‘plus size’ model?!?! no wonder girls think they are ‘fat,'” Twitter user @suzziiee_main tweeted to get the complaints started.

The model deemed not fat enough by these angry shoppers was not the only plus sized model in the news.
Plus sized model Tess Holiday was attacked by an Internet troll for being “fat” on her Depop shop where she sells her own clothes.
Depop user jt795847 unleashed a torrent of insults at the 32-year-old mother of two, calling her a “fat f**k,” among other insults.
Holiday shared the insults on her Instagram and used it as a way to promote her shop.
“If you’ve ever wanted to shop my closet, now you can,” she wrote. “Hope you are a fan of what I’m gettin rid of as much as this turd!”
She later added that he had his account deleted.
“His shop was deleted, so this fat f*** wins.”
