A number of TV networks have rejected this latest advertisement from Lane Bryant. The plus-sized women's clothing line has had a history of making body positive statements with their ads. 

This one features some shots of (gasp!) bare skin and a mother breastfeeding. A representative for NBC told People that they turned down the ad due to broadcasting standards and would welcome some changes:

As part of the normal advertising standards process, we reviewed a rough cut of the ad and asked for minor edits to comply with broadcast indecency guidelines. The ad was not rejected and we welcome the updated creative.

But the controversy remains surrounding what, exactly, about this commercial doesn't meet broadcasting standards. Lane Bryant has so far decided not to change the ad.

Barbie has gotten a lot of criticism for her unrealistic body.  Lately the makers of Barbie have tried to move away from the embodiment of unattainable standards for women and focus on something more aspirational.  First they started a campaign encouraging young girls (and boys) to use Barbie to be whatever they want to be.  Now they've added three new body types, tall, short and curvy, to try to address the body image issues that Barbie is famous for.
