I don't find it offensive. The fact that she's wearing a bikini allows us to see what's been done. The real shocker for me is the way they elongated her legs !!!!! I'm glad to have seen it .... I can better resist feeling bad about how I look compared to a model, since the model isn't even real. Report

Wow, who decides what looks better than natural? Even when I saw the image to start the video, I thought it was a doll she looked so plastic. Report

Thanks so much to Spark for sharing this. It makes me livid to see what advertisers are doing to women. They deliberately seek to beat us down and make us feel ugly, so we will spend lots of money buying their stuff--all in an effort to look like models who do not even exist! It is time we women staged a boycott. Any media product which presents manipulated images should be rejected. If we hurt these cynical people in the bottom line they will be forced to stop this nonsense, and young women can begin to heal their poor body images and focus on the things that really matter--like their minds and spirits.

Think it is sad how we look at others to have the body that is good for us and the right one...I am disturbed that showing us how a model look before and after had to be topless as we can still get the message with at least a bra on...I hope young women even older women doesn't reach to try to have this kind of a goal but do the best they can that God gave us...

I can not believe Sparks has this picture on here....they have regulations and if I saw this
picture on a Sparkpage there are notes to report it.....why is this here. These things can
be explained even if the girl had some clothes on. Pictures like this are in pornographic
materials. Report

I agree with NONNIE311! All young ladies, should see this video. That's where eating disorders start. I also think that boys from an early age should also see this video so that they do not get an unrealistic sense of what a woman should look like. Report

Reminds me somewhat of how Barbie dolls use to look, too elongated. Report

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Many people don't think being skinny and half naked is beautiful. I think beauty is more about what is inside you and how you treat other people. Report
