Lane Bryant is continuing to challenge the apparel industry.
Women’s Wear Daily (via Racked) has reported that the plus-size clothing company will debut its latest campaign in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue. According to the report, the campaign, called “This Body,” proudly proclaims statements such as “this body was made for rocking denim.”
Lane Bryant has been hailed for its body positive campaigns, particularly its “I’m No Angel” campaign, which was a direct blow to Victoria’s Secret and its criticised “Perfect Body” campaign. (Its apparel, however, still leaves much to be desired amongst consumers, as evidenced by the retailer’s failed #AskLaneBryant Twitter chat this past December.)
Sports Illustrated has also announced that curvy model Ashley Graham will be featured in its actual swimsuit edition — an obvious promotion from her ad last year.
