I hear that there is some controversy about the diet ad featuring the woman in the white shirt (the Dream Sculpt Body Spa ad, Jan. 6, 2022).

I just want to chime in with my two cents. I do understand what people are saying— that although she is fully clothed and is tznuit by the letter of the Halacha, it might not be in the spirit of the Halacha. However, that is a judgment.

However, that is a very slippery slope. Are men in biker shorts more acceptable in the pictures that you post? Will someone in the future complain that pictures with women in $4,000 long sheitels not be acceptable? Are all diet ads being canceled?

I am just offering an opinion for you to consider all the ramifications that might follow.

Good luck.
