The best thing about today’s

Oh and their bras rock, too.
Well, way to go Thirdlove! Thank you for saying it like it is. ❤️
My friend used to work at Victoria’s Secret and I constantly begged her to make a minimizer bra, and she said the boss refused. So yes, VS is really for men. 😳
I own and adore several Thirdlove bras. I tried them because I liked their community outreach program of giving returned bras to women in need. And now thanks to this, I will only shop Thirdlove. Bravo!
Thanks for helping me realize to be more thoughtful in my purchasing decisions. Money talks and mine this holiday season won’t be with VS— new bra anyone?
Wow. Thanks for sharing. I had no idea. I won’t be shopping
Never shopped at
for myself as they didn’t cater to my size. They may not care about that, but it also meant I didn’t spend my consumer dollars on their perfume, any other goods they offered, and most importantly, didn’t shop for gifts for other people there. Give me a
store any day for intimate apparel &
for perfume any day.
check this out! 🙌💫
Amazing! Actually bringing me to tears! Well done
! Will no longer be purchasing from VS!
Thank you for posting this. It’s in such bad taste in this climate. 🤦🏻♀️
I’ve always said VS is missing the mark by not including more sizes. They’d be more profitable.
Welp, time to take the plunge and buy a thirdlove bra.
Love this! Never was a VS fan, but ordering a Third Love today.
Thank you for posting!!!!!!
BOOM! 👊 thanks for posting this! i somehow missed this whole thing...
It’s a company’s choice who they market to. Is it wrong to sell a fantasy? They are not an activist group. They are in it to make money, which they make no secret of (ha!). I don’t find the words quoted in that letter to be offensive. They tried to include plus size models (kudos!!) but there was no consumer response. It’s their brand to do with as they like. Like the infamous comment by Christian Louboutin regarding how uncomfortable his shoes were. (I’ll paraphrase) His response was women were free buy a different brand, he was in the business of creating beautiful shoes, not comfort. I feel the lesson applies here.....
Kristin, I’d like to share this with my audience. Do you mind if I repost with credit?
Switched to thirdlove from VS. best, decision, ever!!
don’t mind at all!
Thank you! This is such a powerful letter. Thanks for getting the word out.
Victoria’s Secret merchandise has been declining in quality for a long time now anyway. 🤷🏼♀️ It is cheap junk.
Best clap back ever. VS has been trash for a while and this explains it.
I read this letter to my family last Sunday - love this letter and my NYTimes!
