In a powerful photo collection for the site You Do You, fashion blogger, Liz Black shed light on just how ridiculous sample sizes really are.

Many have critiqued the unrealistic standards set by sample sizing for some time, but, in her compilation of photos, Black holds up clothing to her body providing for a real life comparison.

In an interview with People, Black explained,

“I’ve worked in a lot of showrooms and have dealt with a lot of runway samples, and I have always marveled at the size difference between those teeny tiny samples and the size of my own body,” Black says in an interview with People.

“The message is to the fashion industry as a whole. I definitely feel that the industry has improved in terms of its inclusiveness, but this is one aspect that designers seem to be really not budging on—they still are using homogenous-sized models on the runway.”
