Target's Latest Photoshop Fail Is Horrendous

Today's Photoshop fail comes courtesy of American retail behemoth, Target.

The retailer's website features a photo of a young woman modelling a bikini but oddly enough, the model seems to be missing some important body parts: her crotch and her inner thighs.

In the pic, which has since been taken down, the model is seen wearing a "Xhilaration® Junior's Midkini 2-Piece Swimsuit -Leopard Print" which looks fine at the top but the bottom looks as if they tried to cut out her crotch, leaving a huge thigh gap in its wake.

And that's not the only fail: the model's left arm seems extremely thinned down compared to her right arm.

What's even more disturbing is the fact that this swimsuit was being marketed to young girls in their junior's line, meaning that teens are being told that this extremely thin girl is the ideal body shape.

It's not just young women who are being targeted (excuse the pun): in January, Target used a pregnant woman to model plus-size clothing.
