I'm saying they should have average sized models. Being an average size does not mean she has to be ugly/fat and dumpy.

It would be nice if they did a photo shoot of various women of different sizes in response. Something like "Healthy is Sexy" ...Not "stick thin and I only eat moistened cotton balls for lunch" bodies which the vast majority of their models look that way.



*Side note, I got the cotton balls thing from a magazine I just read. There was an article from a new model.

I had a really good friend in Middle School/High School who's dream was to be a Victoria's Secret Model.. she became pregnant our sophomore year, but is still striving to reach that dream. She's ended up in the hospital so many time because of how ill she is and it's a terrible role model for her daughter.



She's absolutely gorgeous, but she looked way better 20lb ago. Her arms are a lot more skinnier now, I pulled this one of google - I won't share the ones off her fb.

That's not their "brand" though. They have a specific campaign. If someone wants to open a store with lingerie modeled by "average" people, more power to 'em, but that isn't VS's brand.



People need to take the initiative and open their own stores, own lines if they're so pissed.

Quoting Smartass *Preggo!*:" Oh god. I cannot imagine trying to put my DDs in their bras. They are NOT supportive."



Not at all. I used to be a DD and...no. My friend just bought some bras from them and she is a 42 DD. Her back has got to be killing her.

Why though? That's a parents job to teach that to their children and give them enough common sense to know that everyone is different and beautiful.

Ugh, I have Gs or Hs depending on the bra. I used to be a DDD until pregnancy. They kill my back.

I completely agree that it starts at home. However, you are talking about hormonal teenagers with a lot of pressure on them. Their bodies are changing and they get flooded with all these visuals of what "sexy" or "beautiful" is supposed to look like. It would be nice if the media showed more images of variety of shapes.

I agree with protesting the unrealistic portrayal of women's bodies, but I love VS and they have bras and panties in my size. My best friend is pear shaped and she can fit their clothes. Heck, their jeans are pretty much the only brand that can fit her derri

OMG
Are their jeans that great? I have such an issue with my thighs and ass when it comes to jeans.
