The Fall 2016 Lane Bryant ad campaign featured a body acceptance video of five beautiful plus size women celebrating plus size living. The video includes actresses Gabourey Sidibe and Danielle Brooks and models Ashley Graham, Candice Huffine and Alessandra Garcia.
According to Lane Bryant, the new campaign was created for three reasons:
support and encourage women facing and overcoming negativity in their daily lives
shine a light on the negatives and positives of social media
demonstrate how women rise above it all to live their best lives
Enjoy the video. And, don’t be afraid to enjoy your body and your life!
80% of women wear the wrong bra size. Most of them don’t know they are wearing the wrong size or the wrong style. Are you one of them? If so, you need some plus size bra fitting tips.
You may have purchased the wrong size bra to start with. Or, you might have purchased the right size bra but the bra no longer fits correctly. Your bra size changes as you gain and lose weight. Your size can also change as you age. The bra itself will change size with repeated washings.
Plus Size Bra Fitting Tips: How to Measure
Measuring for a new bra is not easy. You need to know what to measure, how to measure your band size and how to measure the cup size. And, to add to the bra sizing confusion, not all bras are made the same way. You might wear a smaller band and larger cup size in some brands and styles.
Need help measuring your bra size? Find out what you’re doing wrong (and right!) in this video from Lane Bryant. It shows the science and the art of bra selection. In just 4 minutes you’ll get lots of tips of how to measure for perfect fit and how to pick the perfect bra style for your needs. For example, did you know that women who carry their weight in their back will wear a smaller cup size than a woman who has the same cup size but carries her weight equally between her front and back.

LB has three pant collections that make fitting easier: the Sophie, the Lena and the Ashley collections.
The Sophie Collection
The Sophie Collection is designed for the woman who has somewhat straight lines from her waist to her hip. If you have less of a waistline but great legs to showcase, the straight or slim styles are going to be just what you’re looking for.
The Lena Collection
The Lena Collection is for women who are moderately curvy from their waist to their hip. So, if you are a curvy woman who likes lots of room in her pants leg you would order either a trouser or wide leg style.
The Ashley Collection
The Ashley Collection is for the woman with a hourglass figure who is curvy through the hips and thighs.
What’s that…you’re only 5 feet tall or you are 6 foot 3 inches tall? Either way you don’t have to scour the racks for pants with the right lengths. Many of the Lane Bryant pants come in petite/short and tall/long lengths.
If finding the right style, pant leg and length aren’t enough, LB also has pants in lots of colors besides black.
So, get into that closet and give away all those pants that don’t fit your body! Now, LB makes it easy to find the best fitting plus size pants.
