Is it me or do this child's legs look unnaturally skinny - please tell me they're not airbrushing kids' thighs now.

Clicky link?

Two out of my three children have legs like that. They're perfectly healthy, matching centiles for height and weight and all that. I tend to think of the other one as a bit chubby but may he isn't!

It wouldn't supervise me that pics of children are airbrushed but not sure if these are.

Oops sorry for crap link. It's just that she looks out of proportion which is what made me wonder.

She looks naturally slim that's all. But the left leg certainly looks slimmer than the right so maybe they did

I don't think they've been airbrushed. There are slight wrinkles down the sides of the jeans. Airbrushing would have made them smooth.

I think she is just very slim. Some kids are.

Thighs are too narrow for her body.

Not that skinny leggy children aren't normal but why do the airbrushing on a 7 yr old? Eejits.

That does look weird to me too. Airbrushing doesn't remove wrinkles on clothes if it's done properly either.

she is slim but not excessively so.

Oh god that has so obviously been airbrushed! Yuck.

I think she's naturally thin. Look at her collarbones.

HeathRobinson Tue 25-Jun-13 09:24:30

And her arms, come to that.

I was that thin as a child.

That has clearly been airbrushed, you can tell by the stance it looks totally unnatural.

Her parents, the modelling agency and H&M ought to be ashamed of themselves. Utterly disgusting.

TheRealFellatio Tue 25-Jun-13 09:26:38

No, I think she just has very skinny legs. Lots of children are like this and they grow up to be willowy and thin. Whereas lots of children who look less spindly grow up to be a bit fat. grin

Her nose looks wrong too. No sane reason for company to do this. Based on my children, they'd be better off showing what the clothes look like covered in mud and grass stains.

Thighs are too narrow for her body.

You can't see how big her body is as she's wearing a loose T shirt and an even looser cardigan.

Her right leg does look disproportionate but that may be the angel, pose or inexpert cropping of the background.

Bunnygotwhacked Tue 25-Jun-13 09:27:23

my dd has legs like that she is always growing upwards and can't keep her filled at moment but the arms do look like they have been thinned somewhat could be wrong though

SoupDragon Tue 25-Jun-13 09:28:00

angle. Not angel. FFS.

YoniBottsBumgina Tue 25-Jun-13 09:28:42

I think her hips have been pushed up because that is the part that looks wrong.

Some children are stick thin but she doesn't look that skinny, her hands look huge in comparison.

Agree the nose is slightly off too. Bizarre.

SoupDragon Tue 25-Jun-13 09:29:14

What is wrong with her nose??

Saidar Tue 25-Jun-13 09:29:26

Doesn't look airbrushed. Think she's just slender and healthy looking.
