Hello beautifuls,

Today I want to talk about something that has nothing to do with make-up; however,  it does have something to do with beauty. I came across a video on Youtube and it happened to be a commercial for Lane Bryant that was banned. The commercial advertises their new bra and pantie line. It features beautiful plus size model Ashley Graham in her underwear and bra. It was very tasteful and was nothing more than what the Victoria Secret’s commercials are. So why was it banned? It was supposed to be shown during the Dancing with the Stars show but executives said it was “too sexy” and “showed too much skin.” I totally disagree with those comments. In the Victoria’s Secret commercials, the models flaunt around in their bras and underwear all the time and the commercials are aired on television with no question. That shows the true prejudice of our society. Most women in America are beautiful plus size women just like Ashley. She speaks on the issue and says that is made her “feel sad” and “many women are size 12, 14, 16 and want to see themselves on t.v. in bra and panties.” I guess they finally aired the commercial in the last 10 minutes of the show but it never should have been an issue anyways. This controversy sheds light on the horrible truth of double standards in our society. I hope in the future these executives will consider that people are different but we all are beautiful no matter size or shape and this shouldn’t be an issue ever again.
