Quoting Snotface:" They carry up to a 42 DD. Regardless, they're way too expensive because it's all for looks, not comfort. "


Oh god. I cannot imagine trying to put my DDs in their bras. They are NOT supportive.

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.

that's one of my favorite words

Thanks, I will check them out online!

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.
