“[Glamour] put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn’t feel right to me…Girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus size, what are your thoughts? Mine are not cool glamour not glamourous,” Amy Schumer wrote in a social media post. At a previous event, also hosted by Glamour at which Amy wore a dashing black dress, Amy told the audience “I’m probably like 160 pounds right now and I can catch a dick whenever I want, like, that’s the truth. It’s not a problem!” Proving the point that women can be hot at any size.
An ad by Lane Bryant features several plus size models, including Ashley Graham, in lingerie or even in the buff doing things like yoga and even one shot of a full figured woman breastfeeding. Overall the ad is supposed to be something of a love letter to bodies that don’t fit the mold of a skinny mini, and seeks to empower women, but those networks may not appreciate the nude quality of the ad, or maybe they just don’t like ads that feature plus sized women, since there are ads with implied nudity on TV all the time, with regular sized women. However, for NBC at least, it seems to be the sexuality that they want to put the kibosh on. “As part of the normal advertising standards process, we reviewed a rough cut of the ad and asked for minor edits to comply with broadcast indecency guidelines,” one rep told The New York Daily News.
