Lingerie brand Figleaves BANS airbrushing in latest campaign

Lingerie giant Figleaves has released its latest campaign – and there’s no airbrushing in sight.

The UK-based online retailer cast models of different sizes, shapes and ethnicities to promote their autumn/winter line and vowed not to use any retouching to distort their natural beauty.

The women showcase their stunning figures with poses that celebrate their curves, stretchmarks and lumps and bumps. 

Among the stars is Khrystyana Kazakova, who rose to fame on America’s Next Top Model and has since graced the pages of Sports Illustrated.
