For the past three decades, it's safe to say Victoria's Secret has dominated the lingerie space. And while many brands have launched and evolved over the last 30-or-so years, VS is one that has, for the most part, remained the same. With the brand's annual "fashion show" — which is essentially a glittery striptease featuring predominantly tall, thin models in diamond-encrusted bras none of us can afford — happening next month, the brand's diversity problem is coming to light.
She's primarily concerned with the brand's lack of body diversity in the show — and its refusal to change. Despite the widespread acceptance of different body types across the fashion industry, Victoria's Secret always sticks to the same outdated formula. Sure, the brand has finally incorporated a wider range of ethnicities, but the models all have the same body type: tall and thin, with very few curves.
Thus, she teamed up with lingerie company ThirdLove to form a petition, asking people to boycott the fashion show until the brand "commits to representing all women onstage."
As of now, over 8,000 people have signed the petition. So it's pretty obvious people are fed up with the brand's singular idea of beauty.
