This Has To Be The Worst Way To Advertise Plus-Size Tights

posted by Dave Basner -

There are many ways to sell plus-size clothes and body-shaming potential customers probably isn't one of them, but that didn't stop one retailer from using the tactic in a recent ad. 

Wish.com promoted a line of plus-size tights by having skinny models wear them and pull them up over their entire body. 

First Twitter was furious with the ad, but then it got worse:

It turns out that photo was actually originally taken to advertise "magic tights" that don't rip if you stretch them and Wish.com allegedly decided to steal it and use it for plus-size tights.

Wish.com hasn't yet commented on the controversy.
