I’ll admit, there are days when I feel that I can use as much help as I can get. But, for retailers, are skinny mirrors helping or hurting their business and in the long run, their customers?
On the site, the manufacturers of the Skinny Mirror says that, “The Skinny Mirror offers a subtle slimming reflection (5-10 lbs) that works on the psyche over time. It gives the users the instant visual gratification of a “slimmer you” while educating that how you choose to feel about your body has nothing to do with your actual shape, size or weight. The Skinny Mirror is successfully inspiring positive self-image in both the home and business.”
Ok, I can see perhaps that having a skinny mirror in your own home may be an advantage at times. You have set a goal to get in shape and are working towards that goal and a daily reminder of what success will look like, may be a good thing. But, when retailers use the skinny mirror to sell clothes, especially without telling their customers that is deception.
What do you think?
