Shopper accuses Boohoo of 'Photoshopping' a model's hips to make her look plus-size - after two VERY different images of her appear online

A baffled shopper has slammed Boohoo for appearing to Photoshop the hip of a model after two very different photographs of her were published online.

Mother-of-two Beth shared snaps of the blonde model in two different dresses to Twitter on Thursday after noticing a huge difference in her size in the photographs.

In the side by side shots, taken from the Boohoo website, the plus sized model was seen wearing an off the shoulder black dress with her slender legs on show.

In the second photo, the same model donned a pink midi dress - and her hip appeared to be significantly wider.

Boohoo has been contacted for comment.

The apparent blunder was posted to social media, where Beth tagged the brand and asked what had happened to the model's pictures.

She wrote: 'What on Earth have you done to this lady? @boohoo_cshelp @boohoo'.  

And this isn't the first time Boohoo has been accused of Photoshopping its models.

Last year, Ella Thorpe, from Manchester, shared two pictures of a model wearing the brand's £18 Western Style Button Through Denim Skirt - including one that seemed to have been edited.

She explained how both pictures had been uploaded to the Boohoo app, and questioned why the retailer felt the need to 'significantly Photoshop the waist smaller on a size 10 model'.

Others were quick to agree, describing the way the pictures had been edited as 'shocking.'

Sharing the pictures on Facebook, Ella wrote: 'So supposedly boohoo.com are about empowering #AllGirls, yet they feel the need to significantly Photoshop the waist smaller on a size 10 model?

'Next time, maybe avoid uploading the original photo to your app as well as the edited one...'

Other shoppers were also left unimpressed by the pictures, with one commenting: 'Omg that’s so bad!'

Another added: 'That’s bad on so many levels. And someone’s going to get the sack no doubt!'

Meanwhile, one Facebook user commented: 'Seeing the normal one would make me more inclined to buy it.

'Seeing the photoshopped version I would think - no way is that going to suit my body shape if that’s the real fit.'

A spokesperson for Boohoo told HuffPost: 'At Boohoo our customer commitment is to provide great fashion for all shapes and sizes.

'We want to do all we can to use our voice to promote body positivity whilst expanding our "fashion for all" offer even further. We are looking into what has happened in this instance.'
