Unusual casting call for lingerie ad!

Look at Wonderbra’s TV ad in the UK - a casting call for “real women” to participate in their lingerie advertising campaign!

Refreshing...and different!

Nicknames used for female breasts include watermelons, jugs, puppies, coconuts, cupcakes, knockers, pillows, horns, eggs and many other related names.

See for yourself at

At least it gives hope to all of us who don't necessarily look like a lingerie model! Now, would you answer this casting call...?

H&M Unusual Retail Store Window

This morning, on my way to Coup de Foudre Lingerie, I walked by an unusual store window at H&M (Corner of 10th & E Street NW)

Instead of a regular store window showcasing the latest trends at H&M, I was greeted with the following posters.....

First Window: "No Peeking. Our mannequins are getting dressed". "Even Mannequins get shy sometimes. It's only human"

Second Window: "Sometimes even mannequins have a hard time deciding what to wear"
I admit it's rather unconventional....but it worked...It got my attention. Now, I am really wondering what they are working on!

Too bad I never thought about using that line in our lingerie store window! It might have grabbed your attention...
What do you think?
