"I just wanted people to have fun by posting memes derived from my photos," says Zheng who posted another series of similar pictures in which she holds a hongbao, or red packet, in her hands before Spring Festival.

Zheng, 38, who has owned a store selling hanfu-the traditional clothing of Han people-since 2013, says her weight crossed 90 kilograms after giving birth to a child in 2016.

Then, in a bid to boost sales at her hanfu store, she produced plus-sized hanfu for women and volunteered to be the model.

Commenting on the pictures, some netizens say the model has "recreated the Tang women from head to toe".
