Brassieres, which haven't made much news since some were symbolically burned two decades ago, are historical footnotes again. Television advertisements for some bras will soon use models instead of manikins. On May 4, NBC is scheduled to air an ad for the Playtex-made Cross Your Heart bra, which shows a woman wearing the product. This brings to an end the decades-old ban by the networks on commercials that show models in their underwear.

The soft real estate market has caused a Southland scramble among real estate firms looking for new ad agencies. On Wednesday, yet another change was made when Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate handed its $15-million annual ad business to the Los Angeles office of Grey Advertising.

Procter & Gamble, which spends an estimated $1 billion annually on television advertising, tied the switch to fears that defections by key Wells BDDP personnel would diminish the agency's work.
