Are you sure? These supposed to be after the Dove campaign. They have been critisized copying from Dove. I have NEVER seen them around thought they might be for women magazines only and/or not for the US market.

I definitely remember seeing them in the gym a really long time ago - someone had posted them in our women's locker room.

Yep, I remember seeing Nike ads to this effect years ago - don't remember how long ago or if it was this exact copy/photos but I do recall this concept. I don't see these as being like Dove ads. They really aren't referring to thunder thighs as that of an overweight women or "typcial woman" but rather of a strong muscular athletic woman ... same with the butt and shoulders. The Dove ads are more it's okay if your body isn't perfect or your overweight and to accept yourself as you are. I feel the Nike ads are geared more to someone like myself - I have tons of scars from crashes in cycling races, surgeries, and growing up tomboy; I usually wear a size 0 petite but often have to buy jeans a size larger to fit my thighs from all the cycling and weight training and have the waist taken in; and I have broader shoulders for my size because of all the swimming. I think Nike is targeting a completely different type of physique from what the Dove ads are promoting.

Old. My sister had stolen some from her school or gym or something- probably 5 years ago and had them in her room.
