The retailer has also been criticised over the models it uses for its plus-size clothing.

A photo of a model wearing a bodysuit from Boohoo's 'plus' range was shared online and provoked an angry reaction.

Twitter users claimed that using relatively slim women to model plus-size clothing gives girls a complex.
