Plus-size bra ad is banned on American TV, considered raunchy
A new plus size bra advert from the well-known plus-size lingerie brand Lane Bryant has been banned on ABC as too raunchy for prime time TV.
The new ad starring Ashley Graham was set to air during a break in Dancing With The Stars last week but ABC refused to show the ad claiming the full-sized model’s cleavage was “excessive.”
Lane Bryant stated they take it as discrimination against larger models.
We knew the ads were sexy, but they are not salacious,” Lane Bryant said. “What we didn’t know was that the networks, which regularly run Victoria’s Secret and Playtex advertising on the very shows from which we’re restricted, would object to a different view of beauty.”
ABC declined to comment.
