Australian model Meaghan Kausman did a photo shoot wearing Fella Swim, with an extremely passionate and talented underwater photographer, Pip, When Kausman found that the images had been photo shopped she posted this on her instagram: “Her photos are magical; they capture women in water and celebrate their beauty.” But the fairy-tale quality of the images didn’t keep Kausman’s body from being tucked and tightened. The model wrote that she was “extremely shocked” to see that the company had posted heavily Photoshopped versions of the photos on its Instagram page.
“They had drastically altered my body, thinning out my stomach and thighs in an attempt to box me into the cultural ideal of beauty,” continued Kausman. “Above is their version, below is the real version. My body is a size 8, not a size 4. That’s my body!”
