Too steamy for TV? Ashley Graham and more plus-size models get their sizzle on in the latest Lane Bryant commercial — but multiple major networks have refused to air it.
According to TMZ, ABC and NBC rejected the ad, which features the models showcasing their curves in the label’s lingerie while reciting powerful messages. Graham, wearing a sports bra and shorts, boxes while stating, “This body is made for being bold, powerful and sexy.” Another model says while breastfeeding, “This body is made for love.”

When Us Weekly reached out to NBC, the network explained, “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. The ad was not rejected and we welcome the updated creative.” ABC had no comment.

Some online commenters have noted the ad is no more revealing than a Victoria’s Secret commercial, and many more are applauding the video’s body-positive message. One YouTube commenter said, “This is a beautiful ad,” while another cheered, “Thank God, an advertisement for REAL WOMEN!”
