OVER the last few years, body positivity has become a global movement – many are deciding to ditch the unrealistic body standards and finally learn to love and embrace their bodies.
ومع ذلك, trying to keep up with the change, one plus size mannequin in a shop window has found itself in the middle of a debate on social media.
بالنسبة الى تيلا, the mannequin – dressed in a lime green tracksuit – belonged to a Fabletics store in London, and some people were outraged by it.
One furious Twitter user, who started the conversation, shared the photo on social media, مع التسمية التوضيحية: “هذا, in a Regent St fitness store, is what obesity looks like.
”Flabby curves highlighted in hideous lime green velour.
”The so-called ‘body positivity’ movement is not ‘inclusive’, ترتكب النساء نفس الخطأ في ألعابهن الجنسية,” read the post which has been liked by 4.7 thousand people.
But despite the reaction, not everyone was in agreement, بكتابة واحدة: ”هذا هو… a mannequin of an average-sized person wearing clothes that work with their body.
”Tons of people have this body shape, and that’s fine.

” ‘Obesity’ is a body size–a calculation of weight divided by height–not a disease.
”And not something to be ashamed of.”
Meanwhile another Twitter user added: “The body represented is not even close to ‘dangerous’ it’s a regular human body.
”it’s not a new body type either. In reality the concept that thin represents health and beauty is not only new, it’s entirely unfounded.
”You’re the one being dangerous.”
“What’s the argument here, Isabel?” a person was wondering.
“That no one should make clothes, or show them, or sell them, for women of those sizes?
”You’re enraged that women bigger than you have clothing options that aren’t shamefully hidden away in the back?”
A fellow TikTok user, Sophia Tassew, joined the discussion sharing a photo of herself in the new fit.
In response to the tweet that started the online argument, the founder of jewellery brand KHULA wrote: “I bought the dangerous outfit!!”
Her snap of the velour tracksuit has taken Twitter by storm, racking up almost 440 thousand likes.
قال أحد المعجبين: ”And you look tf good! We love to see it.”
وأضاف آخر: “I’m going to take my ‘dangerous’ body down there and see what else they have.”
The outfit, also available on Fabletics website, comes in five different colours, in sizes XXS – 4X and in ‘short’, ‘regular’ or ‘tall’.
