Fashion fans are lashing out at Zara for an ad campaign that encourages customers to “love your curves.”
The controversial ad features two young women in skinny jeans and baseball T-shirts. But, as many people who saw the ad pointed out on social media, the women aren’t exactly what we would call curvy.
