I'm not someone who really participates in the the social issues that surround being overweight; there are a lot of plus size bloggers who are much better at the social activism of discrimination against people who are overweight. And I've always tried to keep this blog focused on all the great fashion and style available to us Bombshells. But when I heard about the hub-bub caused by Fox and ABC throwing fits on pairing a couple of Cacique commercials in prime time, I felt compelled to throw myself behind Lane Bryant & Cacique and show them my support.
If you haven't heard about the whole thing, the Cliff's Notes version is that Lane Bryant purchased air time during Dancing with the Stars and American Idol with the intention of airing a commercial for Cacique lingerie. But for some reason, the two networks deemed the commercial inappropriate...yeah. The assumption is that it's because the women are plus size. Because the commercial's not any sexier or more inappropriate than Victoria's Secret, or Desperate Housewives, etc. I would actually rate the commercial on the tame side of television.

I would welcome the opportunity to see this commercial on TV, how about you?
