Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

MY MODEL is not an intentional self-esteem or body acceptance-promoting site. But it's still impressive to see a commercial site give tween and teen girls the chance to create somewhat diverse, true-to-life models of themselves no matter what their shape or look, even if it is just to sell clothes. Some of the fashion advice here seems a little out of step with the target audience (there's a video featuring two- or three-inch high heels for "spring footwear," for example). But most of the clothing featured here is likely to be both girl- and mom-approved by most mainstream standards.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
