Lane Bryant Lingerie Ad Banned…Because It’s Plus Size?

ABC and Fox television banned this Lane Bryant lingerie commercial for the plus-size women. What’s strange is that both networks run Victoria’s Secret ads, so why wouldn’t they run ads with a model?

Lane Bryant has been around a long time, and this is not the first time that the company has been controversial. In 1911 pregnancy was something that not discussed in the media and Lane Bryant convinced the New York Herald to accept an ad for maternity wear. The day after the ad ran the shop’s entire stock was sold out! A few years later Lane Bryant started to make clothes for "stout" women.

Ashley Graham, a UK size 18, 38D, is the model in the Lane Bryant commercial. Maybe all this controversy means is that she’s sexier than a Victoria Secret model.

    That might be the sexiest lingerie commercial i’ve ever seen. Perhaps the networks think that people don’t want to see beautiful real breasts.
