Listen: Victoria, Robyn Lawley, Sports Illustrated discussed on 1A
"Traditional Victoria's Secret her show had pregnant women older women younger women of all different sizes of all different ethnicities very diverse. And even the projection of beauty in that fashion. Show was not the standard frilly. Walking down a along sort of it was more at trying to describe organic. And maybe not the stereotypical definition of beauty as sort of see it every day, and sort of pop culture, and it was really Avangard for the industry. And I think you've seen a lot of embracing of this diversity of ethnicity because customers and and women have wanted it have been seeking it. And if you look at some some companies have really branded themselves feel like a third lab is kind of the anti Victoria secret. They had a hashtag that was on Instagram last night called via all angels. And they're trying to you know, be like, hey. Way are focusing on aggressively marketing selves as being often half sizes and being inclusive to all women. But I do think that in the market has spent a lot of different opportunities. So that women can find what they're looking for that. I think there was an absence of that for the longest time, and it's up to Victoria secret to pivot to either address that or two point two not an you know, let the competition have have that slice the market. And if I can just interject I think also carries point. I'm sorry Tyler. Yes. Yeah. To Gary point. I think you are I myself as a plus size women who works in fashion, and I know kind of how the sausage gets made. And I know what these models. Do. I can look at Victoria secret model and say, okay, I probably will never look like Victoria secret model because I don't have eight hours a day to go to the gym. And I don't have resources to have a personal chef, right? The the. Injure is that this show is inevitably. I mean, just by musical acts loan heavily marketed towards younger women who I think don't realize that. I mean, I can tell you fourteen when I was watching the Victoria's Secret show. I did not realize that I couldn't look like that. And I think that that's that's where this inclusivity becomes more important versus, you know, an Olympic athlete. It's it's a little bit different. Right. We did also hear from Robyn Lawley who is a plus size Australian model she's worked for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. She started a petition asking women to boycott defection show. And she partnered with the lingerie brand third love. Here's what she had to say about her experience with the brand I actually had fallen out of love with the brand years ago after unfortunately, saying the same body type down the runway actually really liked the brand I used to shut the nice to buy this stuff. Even that perfume. You know, I fell into the fantasy of it as well. Every year they're saying the same body time year after year and even costing for them. Myself and not getting anywhere. Just made me feel like they went open to change diversity and that they weren't going to its Robyn Lawley. Plus is Australian model who's worked for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. You get in a few more comments before we have to move on. Belinda wrote us on Facebook in terms of whether she would shop at Victoria's Secret. Belinda writes, not a chance until they carry a beautiful no under wire bra in a forty four or forty six. They're useless to me. Plus, I don't like how all their models are a size to giving girls and men the wrong idea of what he woman should look like Morgan emailed. I'm a new mom, I'm breastfeeding and constantly tired. I would love nothing more than to feel sexy and comfortable again. However, Victoria secret doesn't offer nursing bras or lingerie in my size. I won't spend over fifty dollars on something.."
