Ha ha. It's hardly false advertising if they show you that they're pinning it!
This kind of thing is virtually unwinnable. ANY representation of anything is going to include some distortion. That's what the lawyers would argue. Camera angle and lens, lighting, etc., can all make something look different. In the end, any model picture is only meant as a suggestion of what the garment might look like in real life.
