I happen to come across this article in Vogue News, regarding the possibility of Victoria’s Secret having a plus-sized future…
All I can say is, it’s about time!
I think we have some real concerns here in the United States with respect to obesity and unhealthy habits…but when Victoria’s Secret says “plus-sized” I think we are speaking more about real human beings – it’s really not a stretch.
I love Vickies for very specific things – I literally have the same bra in about a million colors (mostly black, of course! 😉 ) But I own the same style times about 30! It’s just a great basic for me, so I always repurchase…
But overall, the products are not made for everyone – the sizes, for one thing, can be WAY off with the apparel.
And I’d love to see some really beautiful lingerie added for women who need more support! I don’t look my size AT ALL…because I have broad shoulders…but I NEED the support of a wider strap with more room to adjust – some of the styles just will not do!
While the current Angels are gorgeous…in person they are far more slender than any average human being could hope to be – they are naturally tall-and-waify-framed, so it is unrealistic for a woman of my build and stature, for example, to expect I’ll get there – I won’t…and that’s MORE THAN OKAY! The right fit makes all the difference!
So I don’t know if they are…or are not…going to head in this direction. But I, for one, would be DELIGHTED to see more ladies accommodated by the brand. I think having them strut the runway would also be pretty damn fabulous.
