  1. I totally get what you’re saying about it sounding like the women were coached in that “Average Women Get Photoshopped” article…but I was in a situation where I had a photo retouched for a headshot, and I had the exact same reaction of feeling like I just wasn’t looking at myself in the picture. It didn’t have anything to do with body shape, it was my face–I felt like the retouching made me look like I was made out of plastic and not quite fully alive, and it just didn’t look like me.
