This is absurd! Watch this video of the Lane Bryant ad for their new undergarment line that FOX and ABC chose not to air calling it “too much skin.” Compare this ad to the Victoria’s Secret ads, Dancing with the Stars costumes, and the numerous sexual scenes being played during primetime tv on shows like Desperate Housewives and Gossip Girl, and the networks’ claims that it was too racy for “family hour” is simply are simply insulting. Share your thoughts on the advertising world and the lack of full-figured role models in the media…
