I know I’m a day late and a dollar short. However, HERE’S MY TWO CENTS!
Victoria Secret is pretty much a staple in lingerie, almost every girl has been to Victoria’s Secret for her first bra fit and come out with their first bra or thong(like I did). Eventually, they go off to other places once the novelty of the brand wore off. I myself have never bought a bra from Victoria mostly because I’ve never wanted a real push up bra, and as I got older and my breast grew I can’t even fit in their bras anymore. When I started working at a bra store, I had women of all ages come in and tell me how they can’t stand VS anymore and how the bras fall apart. I can’t tell you how happy I was to just buy their panties.
The women would tell me how the bras would fall apart after a few wears but most of the time I hear women say they don’t want lacey push-up and satiny bras every day. They just want good, supportive that support them and fits them, something that seems to have escaped Victoria Secrets grasps so sayeth their own Chief Marketing Officer they’re not here for everyone, they sell a fantasy. Seriously here’s the quote from ELLE
“It is a specialty business; it isn’t a department store,” he said. “I’m always asking myself: If we do that, what is the reason we did it? Why did we include that person? And did we include them to shut up a reporter? Did we include them because it was the right thing to do or because it was the politically correct thing to do?”
Really dude, so you’re telling me that you really are only here for men and their fantasy… not for my boobies or supporting me, the woman paying for the bras and wearing them. You might as well just call it Victor’s Secret since it’s a fantasy for men not a place for women. Unlike Third Love…Third Love is for the Girls, here’s what they had to say in regards to Victoria’s Secret statement according to ELLE.
“You market to men and sell a male fantasy to women. But at ThirdLove, we think beyond, as you said, a “42-minute entertainment special.” Your show may be a “fantasy” but we live in reality. Our reality is that women wear bras in real life as they go to work, breastfeed their children, play sports, care for ailing parents, and serve their country.”
So beautiful, I don’t have anything else to say, but do you? Let me know in the comments
