Her Twitter users described the image as ‘disturbing’ and said that she shouldn’t be proud of ‘squeezing’ into the top
Writing on Instagram one wrote: ‘As a grown woman being proud of fitting into a size 7-8 is nothing to be proud about.’
She later added: ‘Maybe for a child to model not a grown woman who states that she’s squeezed into a size 7-8 that totally gives off the wrong message to children/teens and woman who struggle every day with body/weigh insecurity’s.’
Another added: ‘I’d have to agree…… I’m sure I could squeeze into a child’s t.shirt too but it’s not a good example . On a positive note what a fabulous , positive and empowering T.Shirt for children though !’
On Instagram her followers said that the post might play on young women’s insecurities
Her Twitter followers were equally unimpressed with one describing the tweet as ‘very disturbing’ and another describing it as ‘ridiculous’.
