Another day, another Photoshop fail.

Victoria's Secret has found itself in the firing line once again for going overboard with airbrushing one of the Angels.

American model Martha Hunt (27) features in a new campaign shot with Stella Maxwell promoting the lingerie brand's new Body range, but eagle eyed followers couldn't help but notice her arm looked a little, well...different.

In addition to her right arm looking super smooth, her normally toned bicep looks significantly smaller with an odd gap under her underarm.

"It's obvious they photoshopped another photo of Hunt onto this particular photo. 1. her Abdominals and obliques (stomach area) aren't lining up correctly and 2. her arms are disproportionate. Come on Victoria Secret, we KNOW you can do a better job at photo shop than this," one user wrote.

Another was quick to defend accusations of skinny shaming, saying: "Nobody is shaming them. It's the editing that people are talking about. There is no reason why they couldn't sell that bra without retouching the size of their already small arms."

It's not the first time the lingerie giant has been criticised for their use of Photoshop - last year, they were accused of smoothing out a model's bum so much she was left with only one visible butt cheek.

In August 2012, VS accidentally posted unretouched images of their most famous faces - and the world's biggest supermodels - highlighting the changes made including changing the colour of a bikini in editing, slimming their back and removing all visible lines from their faces.
