Even if they weren’t a fan of PLT’s clothes, many had to admit this was a positive step for how we think of body images.
I’m personally not a fan of their clothes, but this is such a good thing! More companies need to take note ?? https://t.co/cMwpuYerCP

Twitter had some suggestions as to what the next step should be…

Next more darker skin tones so I can see how it might look on me ?

This is amazing! But can we also get images of what clothes look on models of different heights??♀️ because trouser and Jean shopping is a big issue when you’re 5ft tall https://t.co/hmtAxpLMGe

This is a great step, and I understand they are models …but why is it always the option between being a size 6 or “curve” 18. When can we start seeing a reflection of more body types ? @OfficialPLT https://t.co/MHqYtLCPoi

Though total inclusivity is still a pretty long ways away, some users were just grateful a step had been made in the right direction.
Why should this be an amazing thing and not the norm? Shouldn’t discriminate against any size be it bigger or smaller. https://t.co/gO1TZeVwuI
