Thigh gap – the much-Photoshopped hole between the legs that makes women more attractive than they otherwise would be, believe many marketing executives and sadly, a large group of women in Singapore and across the world too.
But thigh gap on an infant?
Diaper brand Huggies has been accused of editing this image of an infant featured in one of its campaigns to make the child look as though it had thigh gap.
And that’s got one mom in California hopping mad.
The mother of an 11-year-old has condemned Huggies for the company’s ad on Little Movers Slip-On Diapers, in which the kid’s legs appear out of proportion.
“’Is it just me or did this Huggies ad photoshop thigh gap on a toddler?”
The ad promotes the poop-carriers as “Diapers worth standing up for”.
Other parents shared Angry Mom’s sentiments online, with some claiming the image was digitally edited.
‘All babies are different – we look to celebrate those differences and everyday tests and messes in our photography and communication,’ Huggies spokesperson Terry Balluck tells Daily Mail Online.
‘We always use real-life customers and users of our products, and do not airbrush the bodies of the babies in our advertising and photography.’
