H&M: Stunted Figure

When she stands up, you’ll see she’s actually holding a cello.

Photoshop Disasters

The positive press H&M received for featuring full-figured manikins has resulted in a lot of risky choices with their models. Gap teeth, 70’s hair, and a growth-hormone deficiency are the latest round of new ideas to make it out of the marketing department.

Thanks Martin! Could this girl possibly be this size?

    Could this girl possibly be this size?

    Which size? The top half or the bottom half?

      Don’t see anything wrong with the size of her chest compared to the lower part of her body (and the arm on the knee) ?

    Hi, I’ve found a photograph. how will you describe this photo: http://abudhabidailyphotograph.blogspot.com/2013/02/cyber-exhibition-no20-sun-in-sands.html

    very bad editing I think. isn’t it?

    she just seems like a tiny girl. not all models need be 180cm tall… and someone mentioned she is Georgia Mae Jagger – how tall is she? i think there is nothing wrong with this, she looks my height (=short).

      I’m 4’11” and I agree, she just looks tiny like me.

      She’s just under five six.

    All I see is a girl wearing a big baggy jumper sitting at an angle that puffs the jumper out a bit. The guitar is a normal size, as anyone who has a guitar will tell you.

    I’m unfollowing PSDisasters, almost all the shots that get posted have nothing wrong with them other than whoever running this thing trying to find problems where there are none. Boooooring.

    It wasn’t HM manikins, it was another Swedish company Ahlens.

    I’m 5′ 5-1/2″ tall and measured my own proportions: 21″ from top of knee to bottom of heel when my leg is bent like that, and 16″ from chair to armpit when I’m sitting, and it’s a good bet I’m sitting on more cushioning than she is. This model’s upper body is MUCH larger in proportion to her legs: her leg from knee to heel could fit between her armpit and the stair on which she sits.

    Second test: Normal stair risers are about seven inches tall. Compare the riser on which she is sitting to her head. Her head is about a third again as big as it should be. Her lower body is in proportion with the stairs; her upper body has been blown up.

    I don’t know beans about the size of guitars or cellos.

    First of all, I did not send this in for making anyone ridiculous for being small or having gap teeth. By the way, at the time of sending I did not know who it is.

    So everyone is looking through his/her own eyes, and what I noticed, is a) that her thighs -especially the right one- are much shorter than the upper body. And when b) looking to the pullover top. That seems to be taken as a pattern from an other photograph and is quite unnaturally attached to the guitar neck. And this cloth appears as if someone would have stuffed a square wooden plank underneath it.

    Agreed, all of this is not so very obvious at a first appearance. However, all in all it shows IMHO how far PS operators can go these days for conveying a “message”, and can bank on that a majority in the public will not become aware of it.
