This is why ASOS doesn't use pregnant models for its maternity range

We've never spotted this.

ASOS is always handy for a browse and never more so than if you're trying to dress your bump.

From casual tees to occasion wear, it's one of the few regular high street stores that carries styles from its standard collections over into its clothing for mums-to-be.

Even Beyoncé has been spotted in ASOS Maternity gear, so you know it's good stuff.

But there's something we had never picked up on about the images on site.

The retailer doesn't use pregnant models, instead putting fake bumps on women who aren't expecting.

Blogger Lousie Pentland noticed the lack of real bumps in ASOS's images and got in touch with the brand on Twitter to find out why.

To be fair, ASOS quickly responded to Louise's query with an explanation.

Modelling is tough work and the retailer doesn't want to put pregnant women under strain.

While Louise was satisfied with this reasoning, others online weren't necessarily impressed.
