Playtex Bras Informative - Offensive - Ad on FB

Review by barbara_dulin33 on 2011-12-17
DOVER, DELAWARE -- Yesterday there was a ad on Fb that said, "What is your date night Bra, it went on to comment that a lot of Mavens thought that finding the perfet bra was instramental in finding the perfect man. I have always bought Playtex bras, but will not fo so now because of this OFFENSIVE statement. Do you think we are all stupid? Unreal. Whoever came up with this comment should be fired. I can't believe you made this comment.

I would imagine most women like to at times feel that they are physically attractive. After all, females are the fairer sex. There isn't near as much physical beauty in a man.

If you take the statement to imply that all women need to attract the perfect man is the perfect brasierre, that I can see that this would be offensive. Suggesting that it is "instrumental" may be a stretch, so to speak, but this is advertising - they stretch things often.

If I find a product I'm happy with, I ignore the sale's pitch. They use all kinds of pitches to get us to buy their products but whether I buy it or not doesn't have anything to do with who is selling it...I don't care if Jane next door is advertising it or some Hollywood celebrity...it's either a good product or it's not and I will be the judge of that myself. I know what my twins like.

I love my Playtex Secret bra's and will NEVER wear any other brand.

They are gorgeous, fit great and are so worth the money. What is so offensive about a date night bra? Nothing sleezy about that. We as woman, love to wear pretty things and on the outside as well as underneath our clothing. I'm proud of my Playtex Secret's bra's.

It's important for ladies to have the correct type of support. Too many women fail to have a proper bra fitting.

For many of our Bra Makeover mavens, finding the perfect bra is the first step to finding the perfect man. What does your special “date night” bra look like?

In case anyone wanted the actual quote.

Doesn't seem anything wrong with that statement to me.

If this offends you, stay away from victoria secrets.....I see nothing wrong with this advertisement. Its not the ads that get me to buy, its the product :). Alot of times sex or attractiveness sells. Models are always gorgeous and me, being a normal looking person, is not offended by that.
