Uh oh! After Jessica Simpson shared a photo of a slim model posing in her swimwear line on Thursday, May 23, fans took to the comments to express their frustrations with the lack of inclusivity.
The 38-year-old recently gave birth, so it’s a surprise that she’s using a specific kind of body type to model her bathing suits, rather than using a combination of women in different sizes — specifically something that resembles a woman who is a mom. “Pool Party Pretty. Get ready for summer with our Memorial Day sale going on right now on JessicaSimpson.com,” she captioned the photo of a thin model wearing a bikini. Fans were quick to express their thoughts.
“Please get some real-sized women in these ads … ” wrote one person. “I was so excited to check out your swimwear, but I soon found myself disappointed in the lack [of] mom-friendly options … cute but covers/disguises up in a non-granny way,” commented another. While a third person wrote, “Yep … nope. We can’t wear those … can you?”
Unfortunately, Jessica is no stranger to getting body-shamed. For that exact reason specifically, though, one would think she would use a variety of models to properly promote all the sizes her clothes come in, which start at a size small to extra large.
This also isn’t the first time the “With You” singer got attacked by fans online. In April, she shared a photo of her newborn daughter, Birdie Mae Johnson, and took the opportunity to clap back at trolls calling her out for posing her daughter on her stomach.
“I like to pose on my belly, but I love to sleep on my back,” the mom-of-three captioned a black and white photo of her new bundle of joy, 2-months. On the bride side, we’re glad she is unbothered by what people say. You go, girl!
