As TV’s brightest stars were walking the 2015 Emmy Awards red carpet, Lane Bryant debuted an ad campaign and pledge urging media to do more to celebrate women of all sizes.
The “Plus Is Equal” site asks fashion magazines “to reflect reality more often,” as 67 percent of women are size 14 to 34.
“When I look around, what I see doesn’t represent me. I deserve more. I’m ready to share the spotlight,” says the website. “It’s time to see a change. To see a body like mine on a billboard and in magazines. I’m sexy, spirited, and stylish With nothing to hide. Worthy of being seen Just as I am. It’s time to represent. Because my voice is one of many and I want to live in a world where we are all seen and celebrated.”
