Victoria’s Secret SWIM: A Chance To Win Back Plus-Size Women?

Ladies, good news for all you “aspiring” Victoria’s Secret models!

You can soon soak under the sun looking like Adriana Lima with the brand’s latest collection. On February 19th, Victoria’s Secret has made a huge announcement to their fans, revealing that the brand which is famous for its lingerie line has decided to bring back its swimwear line, 3 years after its discontinuation.

The curated collection will be re-launched in March and will feature in-house designs and selections from other brands which have yet to be revealed. It was reported that the company decided to discontinue their swimwear line to prioritize the athleisure and lingerie lines.

While many of us are excited with the news on the relaunch, we can’t help but wonder, will their latest swimwear line be size-inclusive?

The brand currently carries lingerie sizes from 30A to 40DDD, but we’re all really hoping that this time, Victoria’s Secret would embrace curvy-licious ladies too.

If you remember, Victoria’s Secret stirred headlines back in November 2018 after Ed Razek, Chief Marketing Officer of L Brands made a controversial comment on inclusivity and plus-size models. Following the brand’s famous annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, he remarked that they would not hire trans or curvy models as they did not fit the “fantasy” of the show.

Razek said, “No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy. It’s a 42-minute entertainment special.”

Well, we will have to wait till next month and hope sizes for every body shape are available. Will Victoria’s Secret learn from their mistake and finally include plus-size models? Fingers crossed!
