Plus Size Too Sexy For TV? US Ad Got Pulled....

Lane Bryant just launched their brand new Cacique lingerie ad and now claims that ABC network rejected their Ad for being "too sexy." What the?

Yes! That is right it was due to air during US Dancing With The Stars (where they wear very little) however it got pulled because it showed too much cleavage.

What do you think?

To be honest when I first watched this I was a little taken aback because I thought I have never seen a plus size lingerie company be that daring but I thought "Man, she looks hot!" Too much cleavage that's just ridiculous too risque I've never heard so much BS in my life. I actually thought it was so clever, tasteful and it makes you feel like you can be more then a Mother, a Partner or whatever. You can feel like a sensual woman who can feel great everyday.

Here's what Fox said

“We didn’t treat them any differently than Victoria’s Secret,” a Fox spokesman said. A rep for ABC declined to comment. Fox had asked Lane Bryant to flash less flesh, the source said. But the label said no. Both networks had a first glimpse of the disputed ad last month from Lane Bryant execs.”They sent the storyboards in late March to Fox to approve. Fox rejected them, saying it was too racy, too risqué,” the source said.

ABC says plus size retailer Lane Bryant’s claims that the network refused to air a commercial featuring a model in lingerie are no more than a fabricated publicity stunt. And Lane Bryant thinks the net’s executives are a bunch of prejudiced boobs.

Here is the Victoria Secret Ad that is aired on the very same Network

Introducing VFox by Vanessa Foxover, you know I love to introduce you to awesome Lingerie Designers. I love Vanessa because she is super passionate not to mention extremely talented. Here's why VFox is hot-

Vanessa Foxover approaches every piece as an untold love story “I see everything I create being inspired by love and romance. Everything I make is a celebration of love and like love itself, my designs only become stronger. They acquire their own history, precious moments that are preserved in time forever”.

Think glamorous, think extravagant, think Ziegfield Follies and Busby Berkeley films of the 1940s and 50s. These are knickers that women will love; these are knickers to feel outrageously gorgeous in.

It’s no wonder that Brisbane’s burgeoning burlesque scene have already snapped up the first pieces from the VFox label. Vanessa says that although her knickers are popular with dancers and showgirls, everyone loves wearing them.

Perfect for the bedroom, honeymoon, anniversary or whenever you’re spending time with someone you love, Foxover says “Every piece has a story, a life and a journey of it’s own to embark on. The journey only begins with my creation, after that you add your own story’.

These beautiful knickers are guaranteed to make you feel very special and very beautiful. Everyone needs a little glamour now and then!
