Mirror Images

A girlfriend of mine recently referred to her "fat mirror" (one that made her look wider and shorter) and her "skinny mirror" (one that elongated her frame). Is this a red flag for some major body image dysmorphia or is she on to something? For me, buying a mirror has always been about its frame and its shape.
