Berlei “bouncing breasts” ad banned from Facebook … Best MBA courses revealed … Beware this Xero scam email

Emma Koehn /

The latest advertisement for underwear brand Berlei has been rejected by Facebook and Instagram for not fitting with the social media platforms’ content policies, reports Mumbrella.

The new “Womankind” video campaign, created by The Monkeys, shows a range of women being constricted by various poorly-fitting bras.

According to Berlei, the issue is that Facebook’s ad policy does not allow advertising material in which the focus is exclusively on one body part.

Mumbrella reports the company sought feedback from its community before formulating the ad, which it says “highlights the daily realities women have with their breasts in an honest and authentic way”.
