Dumb.



Who wants to look at fat/dumpy/ugly models? They're called models not averages for a reason.

A lot of people don't watch the fashion shows. A lot of people do see the advertisement.

The difference is that VS isn't publicly starting that you're worthless if you don't look a certain way. Unlike A&F.

I mean, I'm all for standing up for what you believe in and everything... and I think VS would greatly benefit from making a plus size line.. But then again they don't really have to. Just like there are strictly plus size stores, skinny women don't shop there and find other places. There are plus size lingerie & clothing stores that plus size women can go to..
That's just my opinion.

Oh okay well I just meant of course ads in magazines and such are Photoshopped, but if you see them on TV and stuff, their bodies look pretty much like what you see in the magazines.

Isn't the largest size in clothing they carry is XL or something? I work right next to one but never go in only because it's so expensive.

I'm all for plus sized models and plus sized clothing, and hopefully Victoria's Secret will start manufacturing more plus sized lingerie in the future.

I know some of their bras go up to 40DDD...which isn't bad.



I think that the point of the 'protest' is that the women that fit those sizes are represented in the advertising...

I would rather see a model that actually portrays how clothing is going to fit me.

I don't even think they should necessarily open a plus sized line, I still wouldn't buy their shit. But there are plenty of gorgeous size 9 women, not plus size, they could throw in their fashion show. Not everyone needs to be 6'1 and 115 lbs.
