I hope this represents American girls because I’d sure like to look like them

I don’t have a problem with them. I think the reason they show the sheer clothing without anything underneath is to show you that it IS sheer, and it doesn’t come with anything underneath. I dunno, I could be wrong, but it’s whatever. The ads don’t phase me

I’m somewhat neutral on their ads. While I do believe that the nudity isn’t quite necessary, it doesn’t phase me enough to completely despise their advertising.

I think the ads are very strange :/ But hey, if that’s how the clothing is supposed to be worn, then count me out.

American apparel promotes sexiness to its fullest potential. The models are always toothpick thin which makes women’s with curves nervous about wearing there clothes because it wont look right on them which reduces a section of their target market. I also DO NOT approve of their ads, even what the women wear on the website. With their bottoms hanging out or with their nipples exposed in shirts. I know the models are trying to make a living but they can have a little more respect for themselves, they make pasties for a reason.

Yes because only the females ever have their nipples exposed and female nipples really ARE just incredibly obscene.

The ads are pretty provocative but you have to remember that most of what they sell can be categorized as basics so they’d be covered or matched with other less skimpy things…hopefully.

I don’t mind them, but on the news I hear alot of people complaining about them. But who cares, of it’s not hurting you, why does it matter?

I dislike that in order to browse Chictopia I have to have their ads in my face. The truth is I don’t feel comfortable opening up the Chictopia site in front of co-workers, family or children because of the ads and that’s a shame. Whether or not the ads are appropriate in general is another question – I just don’t think they’re appropriate on this site.

Yep it’s pretty awful. Someone help me understand the concept of metallic bandeaus and leggings. Who wants to look like a hooker from outer space?

I had only ever heard of AA until I joined Chictopia. I didn’t know anything about it, really. Then I started seeing all these incredibly ugly ads, so one day I clicked on one out of curiosity. The website was no better.

It’s not just that the models are are in provocative clothes and poses. It’s that the images are so unprofessional and BAD. Which cheapens the whole thing. Bad photography that makes the models look washed-out and unattractive (even though they’re obviously attractive in real life), they’re always put in the most unflattering clothes, and even when the clothes aren’t provocative they’re styled with other articles of clothing that don’t go well together at all. The ads all have a bland white background, terrible typography, and that ugly “made in the USA” logo slapped on as an afterthought. Terrible, terrible, terrible design! It offends my artistic sensibilities.

I get the impression that the creepy owner does all the ads himself instead of hiring an actual graphic designer. And it shows. The ads look like something a perv made in his basement. They’re not even worthy of all the negative hype. Anyone with a point-and-shoot camera, a model, and a computer could make them.

On the bright side I like how they have some decent sized models and they aren’t all sticks.

All they represent is the pervert’s fantasy that created them. I don’t think anyone is convinced of the CFM poses and crappy designs. I don’t even know many guys that find it very attractive.

Really, his marketing insults everyone’s intelligence, whether female or male. And as for the girls posing in the pictures, there are people willing to do anything for money in any culture.

Quite vulgar, but this is relative.

I like the company’s ideals, but their objectifying ads almost cancel it out for me.

I think that their ads are creative; it’s not like the girls are wearing a boatload of makeup. I think that they wanted a natural look.

I’d like their ads if they were in Marc Jacobs. But they’re always in grandma outfits that go up their crotch or have and awkward shape around their bums. And I don’t much like the lighting either.
