It appears that Target went a little too far with Photoshop in an ad for a girl’s bathing suit, according to

The model in the ad has a thigh gap, the gaping space between her legs and a worrying body trend among teenage girls. But the gap actually extends into her pelvis (and the bathing suit the ad aims to sell) in an apparent slip of the Photoshop eraser.

“It was an unfortunate error on our part and we apologize,” Target spokesman Evan Miller told “We removed the image from the site and we’re working to get a new image up there.”
