Models lighter than Cotton.


Women over size 2, if reading fashion mags makes you want to puke, it's best you avoid daily trade rag WWD. Because there, all pretenses of reality are violently purged, as evidenced by this ad for Cotton, Inc. Bony-ass models apparently not being bony-ass enough, the Cotton folk are using specially designed size -¼ dolls—whose thighs are actually thinner than their calves—to promote their fabric. It’s enough to make Nicole Ritchie start eating—herself.

Fuck this. I was just on the Banana Republic website and saw the large, bold notices that many of their styles are "now available in size double zero." Double zero?! I'm going to go vomit now.

I think the ad should read:

Cotton- You'll need a shit-ton of it to gauze the wound when I break this skinny bitch in half.

That's a lot to fit on a tag.

They look like aging Bratz dolls. And that's not a good thing.

Size double zero??? Bwahahahahahaha! My size is in double digits but not in THAT way. Jeez Louise.

These marketing ppl need to step outside NYC and LA once in awhile. There's a universe of potential customers they are basically telling to FOAD. So strategic.

I need a woman that looks like a woman. One that has curves, nice boobs and an ass that says, "Come get me." Not some girl that looks like an under developed 12 year old who is afraid of food.
Let'sear it for Fat Bottom Girls!

Damn. I gotta cut back on the Camel wides. Do they make a non-fat version? One loaded with High-fructose corn syrup?

she's apparently so light she's about to float out of her shoes and has to hang onto the wall for support.

or maybe she's about to collapse from hunger?

I have just not laughed so hard in a long time... sad but true! "Cotton, it's what's 4 breakfast"....LOL! Oh I may never stop!

Really insane marketing. Have ya seen the Wheat Thin ads? Those girls have giant heads & stick-thin bods.

Smooch,
