Hi Vicky,

You may want to see the policy on Adult content & Nudity.
Since you are not really promoting it, but are selling underwear.. you may want to ask for a manual review and may get a non family safe status.
You can read about it here:

"Google restricts the promotion of the following types of adult-oriented content:
offline adult entertainment
adult merchandise
dating services
international bride services
sexually suggestive content
images containing exposed skin and nudity "

I'd recommend getting in touch with the AdWords Support team and asking them for a manual review and approval of your ads.

Hope this helps!
Cheers,

The "human form and contact" section of the Policy was removed. However, in some countries there are restrictions on image ads with "exposed body parts".
What countries are you targeting?
