Perfectly unattainable bodies.

 A recent advertising campaign by Victoria Secret, flashed up models with perfectly unattainable bodies, perfectly unattainable because the models themselves couldn't even achieve it.

Yep that's right, even more photo-shopped images. In this case, pictures photo-shopped to the point that the models were left balancing on legs that experts say were a third longer than human legs could be without the person tumbling over

And it gets worse. These images were emblazoned with the slogan "The perfect body,"

Check it out

Every year more and more young girls are diagnosed with eating disorders and many of these girls are regularly devouring unrealistic images like this. The result an eating disorder can have on a life is devastating and can even result in death. So why are we, as a society, allowing this to happen? 

In my opinion there is no such thing as a perfect body. Everyone is different. Hight, bone structure and I am sure other aspects all play a part in determining what each of us as individuals should be shape and weight wise. 

These images are not only damaging to the younger generation but to women as a whole. 

What do you think? Should photo-shopped images be banned? Perhaps you feel there should be tighter controls about how images are edited? Whatever your thoughts. I'd love to hear form you.
