Carol Moog's article, "Media Mirrors" deals with the changing advertisements of Maidenfrom lingerie. The paper discusses Moog's point that women went from seeing Maidenform commercials as being interesting and empowering to seeing them as embarrassing. The author of the paper argues against Moog's opinion and challenges the idea that the type of underwear one wears determines whether one believes in oneself or not. The paper also examines the role of men in the advertisements.

From the Paper:

"From personal experience and observation, I don't agree with the author of the article. I think that Moog portrays women as not really knowing what they want, and as the kind of people who are extensively swayed by advertising campaigns. Granted, it is the goal of advertisers to sway people to buy their product. However, Moog's article almost sounds as though she does not feel that most women are intelligent enough to make choices in their life based on things that are more important than what type of bra they are wearing. Since the article is written by a woman, it surprises me that the article would give off this kind of impression. However, that is the very definite feeling that I received from it."
