FASHION fans have slammed Shein over some bizarre pictures on their website.

The picture was shared by twitter user @karmaxkarmm, who wrote: "SHEIN. y'all couldn't find y'all a plus size model??????? Wtf is THIS?"

But others jumped in to defend the retailer, insisting that people were overreacting and missing the point of the pictures.
"I mean, yes, this is ridiculous, but I’m pretty sure the intention was to show how much the tights can stretch without ripping rather than showing what they would look like on a plus sized model," someone wrote.
A second agreed: "Or you could look at the image as a clear advertisement for tear free, stretchy tights."
The Sun has contacted Shein for comment.
