It not only aired during the Emmy Awards (yes!) but the models are shown happy and confident with lumps, rolls and stretch marks (double yes!) and includes actress Danielle Brooks in the commercial (triple yes!).
“I’m learning to love my love handles. For the longest time I hated them because I felt I couldn’t wear certain outfits, and because I definitely did not see women in magazines showing them. But as time went on and I started to see women embracing their ‘love handles’ in commercials for brands like Lane Bryant, I realized it’s normal and okay to own a pair myself.”
We think casting Brooks in this commercial was perfect.
Alongside supermodel Ashley Graham, model Candice Huffine who is defying stereotypes on what a runner should look like, and model Denise Bidot, who is starting a revolution on loving your stretch marks, Brooks is repping, not just for women who don’t have a flat belly but women who are overall struggling with loving their body fully.
