US retailer Old Navy has been accused of photoshopping thigh gaps onto pictures of its plus-size mannequins, and what with Target's latest photo manipulating debacle the internet has been up in arms.

While the images look as if someone's come over trigger happy with the ol' MS Paint eraser tool, Old Navy insist the pictures have not been photoshopped.

"At Old Navy we strive to show our customers the most accurate representation of how product fits the body," a statement released to Jezebel read.

"This includes pinning garments on body forms to show how they will actually appear. While we do remove these pins in post-production, we do not use any photo-altering techniques to deliberately distort the actual look or fit of our product."

But whatever the scenario, the company is still coming under fire for promoting the thigh gap and an unrealistic representation of what the jeans will look like on "real" women.
