WHAT DOES THIS OLD LANE BRYANT AD SAY TO YOU?


Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The Cut posted this old Lane Bryant ad on their blog.


Reading the tag line "Calling All Chubbies,"

What are your thoughts?

it doesn't speak to my experience but neither does calling myself fat and shunning the curvy label.

Wowzers! Let's all thanks LB for evolving with the rest of us "chubbies"

This ad makes me feel oppressed. From the frumpy oversized coat and gloves to the fact that they're using chubby in the form of a noun instead of an adjective.

Chubbies? Are you serious? It's wonderful to see where their advertising has come from.

Speechless!

First thought: Good thing we live in the 21st century, and silly ads like this are a thing of the past.

Second thought: Hey, that's a super-cute vintage coat! Wonder whether any are still around somewhere ... God only knows it would be rad to find something vintage that would actually fit me. If I found one I'd wear it belted.

Doesn't bother me - the verbiage is pulled from a snapshot in time, so isn't applicable to me in today's world.

I will say - that coat in the ad is super cute!

'chubalas' woulda been cuter ...
...
i don't mind the word chubby when used by a 'chubala' but i sure don't want to see it used as insulting in an ad ...
especially when the person who wrote the ad was prob'ly a skinny , flat ass , flat chested skeleton that got dumped by her boyfriend for a gorgeous chubala'...
our time has come ladies ....
