Playful Promises: Creating “safe spaces” for obese women

There’s that “body shaming” again. Thou shall not tell the truth!

From Fox News: A lingerie company is not having it with internet trolls who try to body shame their customers.

U.K. based brand Playful Promises shared a photo of plus-size model Jewelz Mazzei wearing their bra and underwear on the company’s Instagram page. Alongside the photo, they added a comment, warning against any negative comments people feel compelled to post about the image.

“Goes without saying, but negative comments will be deleted (if you don’t like something, that’s fine, keep scrolling),” it said. “Anyone who continues to comment after having comments deleted will be blocked. Anyone that tries to pull in known trolls to comment will be blocked. Known trolls are already blocked.”

According to Allure, the company reportedly removed any comments voicing “concern” for Mazzei’s health or how her lingerie fits, as well those that disagreed with their decision to feature a plus-size model at all.

Playful Promises also added an apology for the offensive comments they hadn’t yet removed.

“I [apologize] to anyone that is offended by [the comments] before I get to them. Please avoid feeding the trolls, they’re hungry and lonely,” the company wrote. “Women of all sizes and all shapes deserve to feel sexy and loved. It’s not affecting you. Use your time and energy for better things, for real issues that affect you and your countries,” they added.

Anna Sampson, a brand manager for the company, told Brit & Co that their goal is to create a safe space for women to feel confident and express their sexuality, regardless of what they look like.

“Women are not treated well on the internet,” she said. “It’s irresponsible for brands not to stand up for their customers, showcasing things like diversity and support are important. As a consumer, I don’t want to browse lingerie and see reminders of how much society values the slim, white cisgender woman, I want to see reminders of how amazingly diverse we are!

  1. What kind of crap is this? Do they honestly think the majority of people want to look at fat women in thong that is too small and tasteless for their body type? Company execs probably laughing behind closed doors their goal is to get the fat people market….

  4. That model is just as ugly and grotesque in that outfit as the so-called
    modern art that dominates many art museums now. Our genocidal,
    parasitic elite rulers know exactly what they are doing. For example,
    the Palm Springs museum of art used to be a lovely little museum
    dedicated to Hollywood actors, wild west scenes and Mayan
    sculpture. Most of the earlier exhibits have been replaced
    by hideous modern art junk, lionized by condescending docents.

  6. Holy cow (pun intended)! I don’t hate the woman but I sure don’t feel she has sex appeal or is even attractive! What she wants to do with her body is her business just as what I do with my vision is my business and I don’t want to look at her in that state!

  7. She is not a plus size model. Anyone that allows themselves to get this obese has a mental problem. Instead we should be providing help to address their issues not promoting their destructive and life threatening behavior as normal. The men that love them are just as mentally ill as these women that are hell bent on destroying themselves. Of course that is their choice but lets not propagandize it as normal.

  11. As quoted from the linked Fox New page…

    “Women of all sizes and all shapes deserve to feel sexy and loved.”

    That’s what alcohol and recreational drugs are for–to alter your feelings. Hey, here’s an idea! What PEOPLE of all sizes and shapes really deserve is a society that doesn’t treat just the symptoms of each and every problem, but rather, the problems’ root causes! They deserve REAL help that only comes from REAL truth (such as, perhaps we as a society aren’t overweight because we eat too much, but we’re overweight because we don’t have the option to obtain our foods from the same sources as members of the British royal family, not to mention that the media, backed by the established institutions of pseudo-science LIE about the root causes behind the present epidemic of poor health… What PEOPLE of all sizes and shapes deserve is to not have to put up with the incessant BS extruded from the Left’s collective pie hole!

    “It’s irresponsible for brands not to stand up for their customers”

    Then why don’t these jerks actually stand up for their own customers by calling out the root causes of obesity (such as poverty and poor nutrition), instead of making out like such root causes don’t exist? Any friend of mine who wants only to solve the symptoms of my problem (when they could at least help to solve the problem itself), is NO friend!!!

    Now where’s that clever electronic device used on the movie, “Men in Black” that makes you forget you saw something?

  12. I used to be a body shamer, too. Now I’m committed to sharing only body-positive messages. You can, too. For example:

    “Wow, you’re standing! Your knees must be really well-built.”

    “You’re going to look so beautiful at your early funeral. Image the excitement when they use a forklift instead of pall bearers!”

  13. Remember that story about the “guy” that took care of the obese ‘child-woman??? Yuk. It’s an absolute DISORDER to think this is ‘normal, sexy, okay…’

  14. Maybe this is just me but in my opinion this model would look a whole lot more attractive in a nice pretty-in-pink flowing gown that covered the fat but yet look really nice. There are all kinds of reasons why she maybe over weight. Some one pointed out that the men who love these type of women are just as much to blame as they are. You are right. Not to long ago I heard a man say that since his wife had gained weight he no longer had to worry about other men finding her attractive. Not that he had to worry about that in the first place. My thought was, now I know why she gained weight, if for no other reason than to get him off her back!!!!

  15. I wonder if she KNOWS that the feedback on her is edited to ONLY show POSITIVE comments. Seems to me it’d be VERY hard to “feel loved and sexy” knowing they have to edit the results to achieve that approval. (Sorta like Hillary’s Presidential Campaign,huh?)

  16. Years ago, I did custom alterations for a small mail-order company (back when mail order was catalogs and order forms and envelopes! – even toll-free numbers were rare; yep I’m that old) that specialized in “sexy lingerie for the oversized woman.” They also had a small store. Talking to the head saleswoman one day, she was regaling me with yet another in her LLOONNGG list of very funny stories, she mentioned one woman who had come in and asked to see “something sexy in a size 62” to which the saleswoman did NOT say – but DID think – “honey, ain’t NOTHING sexy is a size 62!”

    She was right…

  17. I realize not everyone can be a size 2 these days, with lack of healthy eating and lack of exercise, but to encourage women to be overweight is dangerous.
    Whatever happened to personal dignity? That way over sized model is digging her grave. And no matter what skimpy outfit she puts on, she is not and will not be sexy. She will just be a morbidly obese delusional woman trying to be something she is not.

  19. The company had to employ the owner’s wife and this is what they came up with. You ought to have seen the campaign they had planned for his mother in law. By the way this company is owned by lesbians.

  20. Next they’ll tell us we’re ‘racist’ or ‘prejudiced’ against rotund people because we don’t think they’re SO BEAUTIFUL like that.
    Sorry, but I just don’t find that attractive. I’m also not into the Michelin man either…..
