Three cheers for body diversity!
People are applauding Target for featuring a variety of body types in its latest ad campaign for bikinis and bathing suits!
The popular retailer's newest campaign, called "Target Loves Every Body," showcases shapes that move beyond the standard very thin and very tall supermodel look.
Just check out the photos for evidence!
Models (left to right) Zanna Roberts Rassi, Nashelly Messina, Nikki Minton, Sarah Boyd, and Chanté Burkett are far more representative of women in the world than you'd typically find on fashion runways.
The best part is they all look beautiful in their swimwear, which goes to show that only using one body type to advertise your wares doesn't have to be the only approach.
Good job, Target!

Oh wow. Lilly Pulitzer fans take their shopping seriously!
The label's Target collection completely sold out in just one day! Well, actually it was more like hours.
Dubbed "Pink Friday" by fans because of the long lines and insane hype, it seems the odds sadly weren't in everyone's favor.
Between Target's site crashing and the limited amount of quantities on Sunday, not a single piece was left behind. And as it goes with most Target collabs, many items were available on eBay later that day with a crazy mark up.
We're talking at least double the prices.
The struggle was real! Just to prove it, read on for some our favorite tweets…
Sex & The City's very own Kristin Davis got in on the action, writing:
And decked out in the new collection, the trio were the epitome of spring.
Kate hit the red carpet in a pale green and yellow shift, which she styled with simple black flats and a boxy Mark Cross bag.
The dress looks stellar, but her accessories were way off base!
The clothes themselves are cute enough, but the ads for the collection have sparked controversy among some consumers for mainly depicting white models.
A Change.org (see it HERE) petition has been started by L'Sean Rinique urging Target to remedy this by including more African-American models in the ads and issuing an apology to the film's star Quvenzhané Wallis, and has already garnered several hundred signatures from supporters.
The petition in part states:
Lingerie lines are the new fragrance deals!
Apparently, the actress spotted the brand while living in Paris with her husband Olivier Martinez, and decided that it would be great for women in the US as well!
Annnnd another client bites the dust!
Now Target is no longer supporting his allegedly deplorable behavior, and even released a statement saying so.
