Cellulite is the least of her problems. She's also too fat and has stretch marks. What were they thinking?
I have all these problems too, but I wouldn't subject others to looking at it.

I really think it's better to accept perfectly normal bodies and not look for flaws. I'm happier if people aren't ashamed of themselves and just go about their normal activities. Maybe they'll do the same for me!

Essentially nobody who critiques overweight strangers is doing so from a place of deepseated empathy and concern about the individual's health.

Of course, as a very flawed person myself, I give others a lot of slack. As for myself, I do not subject others to my chubby, old sagging, one boobed body in a bikini. I wear a good fitting one piece wth a skirt. Should I wear a bikini so I can prove that I feel good about myself and all y'all need a lesson in tolerance? Nope.

The women in these Target ads are beautiful; I strongly prefer bigger women with large thighs, big hips, and wide asses - that aren't afraid to let it all hang out - i.e., BBW's. That being said, calling all of the women in these ads (some of whom are just average weight) BBW's is stretching it - pun not intended.

I do not find skinny bulimic women attractive at all.

If you were a model and were paid to do so maybe you would. But she is a professional model and many of us dont think she has a lot of flaws or is too fat.

Uh huh. But I did see:
"Cellulite is the least of her problems. She's also too fat and has stretch marks. What were they thinking?"

If there's a one-boobed lady out there who's chubby and sagging, I wouldn't grudge her the right to stay covered up, or to wear as little as the cops will let her get away with. I'm happy to see a variety of bodies, and hopefully their owners are happy too.

Sure, like most women living in the Western World, she is overweight. However, I didn't see cellulite, which is typically prominent on the backs of the upper thighs, regardless of weight.
