Old Navy is catching heat because a photo of a pair of its' plus-sized blue jeans looks -to some - like it’s been airbrushed.

The picture in question involves a pair of the store's Women’s Plus The Rockstar Mid-Rise Cropped Jeans.

There’s a section in between the thighs that makes them appear skinnier than the thighs of a woman that size.

Old Navy denies any photoshopping - you can check out the pic HERE.  (Yahoo)
