As part of its ongoing efforts to improve its public image, Lane Bryant did a little Twitter Q&A this afternoon. It went about as well as any Twitter Q&A ever goes!
Greetings from a bunker, where I have stockpiled dried apricots and seltzer and plan to wait out everything to do with this #ImNoAngel ad campaign. Good try, Lane Bryant, but no number of beautifully shot images of Ashley Graham will erase years of trying on asymmetric polyester garbage at your stores, hunting for…
The plus-size business is taking off—brands are launching, models are breaking out, and people are finally paying attention. This is part of a series of interviews with players in the industry; let us know if there's anybody you want to hear from!
Shopping as a fat woman is a wholly different experience than five years ago. Once relegated to the Macy's basement, the shitty end of the mall, God forbid the catalogs, now we've got access to neon and sophisticated florals and horizontal stripes and crop tops and two-piece bathing suits. Even the whack garbage is…
This really puts the debate over the term "plus-size" in perspective: Here is an ad for Lane Bryant, from the back of the September 1922 Ladies Home Journal. Hey, stout women! Lane Bryant has the hot fashions you want!
Not many designers deign to create garments in plus sizes, but for spring, award-winning designer Isabel Toledo has teamed up plus-size clothing retailer Lane Bryant for a really pretty capsule collection.
Here's TV personality plus Jay Manuel playfully swatting at a miniature cupcake. He's so goofy! The cupcake shenanigans went down at the party he threw with Carnie Wilson to celebrate Lane Bryant's NYC flagship store.
With models like Crystal "Vogue Paris" Renn becoming true crossover stars, and agents like Gary Dakin of Ford+ reporting so much demand that he turns work down, it seems like the fashion industry is finally starting to recognize the beauty of bodies that aren't runway-sample-sized. Here are five plus-size models we…
Something is lacking in the current push to include plus-size models in mainstream fashion publications (or "separate-but-equal" media outlets such as Vogue Italia's "Vogue Curvy").
Want proof that TV networks have arbitrary, often puritanical standards? Check out this leaked memo from ABC to Lane Bryant about its lingerie commercial. Oh, and please remove the word "hell" from "hell of a good time."
Yesterday, Lane Bryant posted a lingerie commercial it said had been rejected or partially censored by ABC and Fox. Now they've taken it down. What's going on?
While Victoria's Secret Angels are clearly fine to prance around the networks, the commercial for Lane Bryant's new lingerie line has been turned down. The company is pissed — and it's openly saying so.
There's something just a little bit...strange about this Lane Bryant ad, currently viewable on the plus-size clothier's homepage. Does the human bellybutton normally reside a few inches above its owner's right thigh?
Everyone knows Crystal Renn. You've seen her in magazines. Yesterday, when I met her at the 34th St. Lane Bryant — which is decked with pictures of the dark-haired plus-size supermodel — even a customer was telling Crystal's life story.
