Despite Featuring Plus-Size Models, Victoria’s Secret’s New Swimwear Is Still A Problem

posted in: NewsTicker

According to Taylor Long, founder of Nomads, a swimwear line that carries sizes XS to 4X,  Victoria’s Secret’s use of plus-size models without actually selling plus-sizes is unacceptable. “When a brand like Victoria’s Secret uses deceptive marketing tactics, not only are they tokenizing the plus-size models they use, they’re also deceiving their customers,” she explains. “[Victoria’s Secret] is one of many brands that are trying to capitalize on the size inclusion movement without doing any of the hard work, which would include designing, producing, and carrying plus-sizes in their store.”
