I shared this with Eve already and was wondering if others felt the same: WHY DO SHAPEWEAR MANUFACTURERS ALWAYS USE SKINNY MODELS IN THEIR ADS???? Whenever I see a print ad or a tv ad, they always show a girdle on SKINNY WOMEN!!!! I do understand their reasoning, but come on!!!! I guess I'm the stupid one because I have a drawer-full of 'under garments' that I bought thinking that there was even the slightest, most REMOTE chance that I'd look like the women in the ad. But that's ok - some day the 'ad' women will be my age and thinking the same thing- I hope.
