That body exploitation viewedfrom semiotic and its signifier is in form of outstanding body appeal, both in nature of whole body and certain vital or sensitive parts of body. From the signifier, it can be categorized into two: a) signifier which is related to real need of women such as advertisement of body treatment, and b) those which are not related to women's need at all such as advertisement of mobile phone.
