What do you make of it?
ASOS is being called out for putting padding onto models to make them appear like they are plus size.
It comes after plus size fashion blogger Georgina Grogan spotted it on a lingerie model on the ASOS website. She simply screenshot the image, and added “We can see ur padding @ASOS.”

It appears to be on the purple Curve Adorn lace and satin knicker by Ann Summers, however the image itself is an ASOS image for use on its website.
Georgina’s followers were quick to comment on the post, with many in disbelief:
OMG just hire women who actually fit in the clothing of your plus size range. Jesus.

Is this pants and they’ve put padding in to make the model look bigger? What on Earth

At this point I’m fully prepared to cancel ASOS. And I’m on their app 20 times a day. This shit disgusts me.

ASOS has yet to respond to the controversy.
