Lane Bryant’s new commercial is banned in the states
In every magazine you read you turn pages and you see nudity in different ways. A new commercial from Lane Bryant is then called controversial! Why? Oh yes I know why, because there are plus size women in it. Don’t make me laugh! This commercial you can see below is showing all women to love their body just the way it is. This commercial with naked plus size women is banned at the big tv stations in the States. Are you kidding me? Stop being such a prude!

whether you’re plus or petite or something in between, you are beautiful just the way you are
It’s not about nudity, it’s not about showing off your body. It’s about loving your body and realizing what it does for you. I can already here the critics say we shouldn’t promote obesity but that’s not what this commercial is all about. When will people start getting it? Love the body you are in, you have one. You might as well cherish it. Self hate is not something that’s going on with plus size girls, it’s for all who is doubting about themselves. Whether you’re plus or petite or something in between, you are beautiful just the way you are. Only if we realize that we should love ourselves, then we can love other people too.
The next step is probably that crap about health and oh I just want them to know that they are slowly killing themselves replies. Seriously? You might be surprised but I read a lot of these kind of comments on American plus size models and bloggers accounts. Women and man bashing others about their appearance. It’s 2016 people! Though it’s not that heavy here in Europe I am expecting it’s a matter of time. The comments people leave on social media is outrageous and disrespectful. I often wonder if they even read back what they are writing -seeing all the misspellings and all.
As per Cosmopolitan: In an email, a spokesperson for Lane Bryant provided the following statement:
The THIS BODY campaign was meant to be a fun way for us to celebrate and honor women of all shapes and sizes. What is too much for some does not hold true for others. All women should be celebrated and feel empowered to express themselves as they see fit. We want her to know she can attract as much media attention, look just as striking as any woman, and decide what beautiful means to her. The THIS BODY commercial holds nothing back. It is a true celebration of women of all sizes doing what makes THEM feel beautiful whether its breastfeeding their newborn, flaunting their bodies the way they see fit, breaking down barriers all around and simply being who they are or want to be!
