And yet, fat people need lingerie, too. Or would you rather see them in lingerie that's made for smaller people instead?

It's not just the skinny women that can show off their goods. Even though some have nothing to show off. Some of us men enjoy meat on the bones, ya know?!

The women modeling the clothing are not potential dates for you...they're showing customers what clothing looks like when worn. If you aren't a woman looking for clothing to purchase, please keep your leering comments to yourself. gag

If I am not too nosy - how tall are you? When we moved to the US I felt like a clumsy giant amidst the Southern Belles and was right where I left. SO turned out to be the frog prince and made everything perfect; still does.

Maybe the purpose of plump women in lingerie is to remind people this is how bad they'll look, if they can't discipline their eating habits. Still, advertisers need to show fellas with beer guts modeling boxer shorts, and one or two smokers.

If those models will increase sales of boxer shorts, you can be sure stores will start featuring them.

Sounds like someone is trying to launch his modeling career!

There's nothing wrong with these ads. I live in the real world where people come in all sizes. Admitting to reality is not promotion of any lifestyle or personal habits.
Thank you! People of all sizes would like to buy something that looks nice on them. How is someone who wears a size 18 supposed to know how a dress will look on someone their size if all the models shown are a size 2? I am very happy to see models of all sizes, races, and physical conditions. I don't look at ad flyers to see someone else's idea of beauty. I look at them because I want to see what's on sale, and seeing that they care about having attractive clothing for someone who's shaped like me makes me want to shop there. If so many Americans are overweight, then the stores had better start catering to the market.

Nobody cares what you want. The ad isn't intended for you. It's an ad, not a porn magazine. It's intended for women shopping for lingerie. If you don't like it, don't look at ads for women's clothing.

I'm on Target's email list, and today I was sent an email that was about women's swimwear, featuring first and foremost a very large woman in a bathing suit. It was appropriate coverage, but I don't want that sent my way. Next time I receive something like that, I'm unsubscribing. Stupid company should have in its system that I'm a man.

The only positive about that is it prompted me to think there's also anger about hypersexualization gone so far that now ads featuring obese women in revealing clothing are going mainstream.
