Every year, increasingly more people join the movement of body positivity and embrace the idea that every body is beautiful regardless of size and shape. Many large companies support this inspiring trend and become more inclusive in their advertising campaigns. For example, recently, Gillette invited Anna O’Brien, a famous plus-sized model, to a photo shoot for their advertisement. The photos turned out to be wonderful! But not all everyone appreciated the gesture...

However, not everyone appreciated what Gillette did there. Some argued that plus-sized models aren’t suitable for such ads, while others saw propaganda of an unhealthy lifestyle in this.
