If you check out the new thread about Merida by disdork, there is a side by side picture of the orig. Merida and the "improved" Merida.

When I read this string prior to seeing the new post, I tended to think this might be an example of things being blown out of proportion. However, after seeing the actual versions side by side, there is a clear difference. That difference is a more sexualized version.

It is sad, when you see this type of marketing creep it's way into Disney. I do not have a problem with having all princesses be a vision of perfection. The problem I have, is that Disney finally had a strong female character, who was not drawn in the stereo typical princess mold, and then decided that was not good enough. The fact that someone thought a more sexualized version would be better than the original is upsetting. It is not a big deal but it is sad!
