Victoria’s Secret is notoriously famous for using skinny models in lingerie adverts. But, most people will argue that the company needs to be more open to diversity. One of them is the plus-size model Tabria Majors, from Brooklyn, who decided to recreate Victoria’s Secret shoots and prove that women of all shapes and sizes are sexy. She is surprised that the largest American retailer of women’s lingerie, always uses thinner models. Tabria cannot understand why the higher-ups at the lingerie company won’t include more plus-sized “angels” among the skinny ones. “Maybe I’ll be a Victoria’s Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain’t happening in real life,” Majors captioned the photos, that now have gone viral with more than 27 thousand likes.
And this is not the first time that someone asked this crucial question. The model Ashley Graham who has appeared in Vogue, did a campaign with Lane Bryant that said it all with a simple hashtag – #ImNoAngel. Maybe after this Victoria Secret will get the memo.

This is the gorgeous model Tabria Majors, who wanted to know “why VS, and so many other companies, don’t cater to the average-sized woman.”
It’s time for the lingerie empire to incorporate plus-size models in their ads.
Curvy girls can sell just as many undies and these stunning photos that Tabria recreated prove just that.
Here is the plus-size model looking just as sexy as model Candice Swanepoel.
Here is she rocking the floral bra and knickers set.
“Maybe I’ll be a Victoria’s Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain’t happening in real life” Tabria says.
Not only her but the model Ashley Graham has also expressed her dissatisfaction about the fact that the lingerie brand chooses only skinny models.
The Internet, of course, was extremely supportive.
Do you agree that VS should start changing their ways?
