Lane Byrant’s Lingerie Commercial Racey Enough to be Pulled? I don’t think so.

By  | 

Have any you had the chance to see the Lane Bryant Lingerie Ad? It maybe hard to see since it’s been banned by Fox and ABC.  I think it’s pretty tame stuff.  Especially when you consider the ads Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian did for hamburger chains.  Remember Paris rolling around in suds at a car wash while eating a burger?  Or Kim in a negligee laying on a bed, biting into her salad suggestively? I have to agree with Lane Byrant’s statement in their press release, ” our ads were no more risque than those of Victoria’s Secret.” Ironically, the ads got bumped from appearing during “Dancing with the Stars.” Go figure, considering how low cut and provocative the costumes of Pamela Anderson and some of the other dancers are.

If you haven’t seen the ad , click above to see what you think.  I’m surprised there was any controversy about it at all. By the way, the whole line of Lane Bryant lingerie, called Cacique, is on sale right now for 40% to 50% off.  Good thing there are blogs to tell you about the details when TV commercials get censored 🙂

    I heard about this on the news yesterday and I think it's completely ridiculous. You're right the Victoria's Secret ads are always playing, heck they even have a special they do every year. Don't get me wrong I love Vicky's but this obviously has nothing to do with how “risque” the commercial is and more about what store it is, because it features and caters to a different size woman. If they're really serious about what kind of commericials their channel is playing maybe they should consider removing all of those Viagra commercials.
