Lane Bryant AdLane Bryant has been making a big to-do this week over the commercial for its new Cacique lingerie line, which the plus-size retailer claims was banned from ABC's 'Dancing With the Stars' and FOX's 'American Idol' because it flashes too much flesh for the family-oriented shows. That is, Lane Bryant says the networks rejected the spot because it's too risqué and because they have a bias against full-figured models.

But are the networks really displaying a double standard, or is Lane Bryant's claim just a publicity stunt? Is this all just a tempest in a D-cup, an effort to make Lane Bryant seem provocative, controversial and sexy?
