Not that you should hold your breath, but still.
A study in the International Journal of Fashion Design, Technology and Education, the average American woman is a size 16. Victoria’s Secret hasn’t featured a model over size 6. Ever. Nadia Aboulhosn, who is a size 8 doesn’t see that fact changing anytime soon.
“I think they have a brand image for themselves,” she told Mic. “That’s just what they’ve done for years. I can’t expect everyone to turn a new leaf as quickly as I’d like them to. I love VS, I wear them all the time. I really think with time, they will. Maybe that’s me thinking positive or maybe that’s because I never give up on trying to break down doors.”
Aboulhosn has done campaigns for H&M, Addition Elle, and Khloé Kardashian’s Good American. In April, she became the second “plus-size” model in history to appear on the cover of Women’s Running magazine. She also has more Instagram followers (503,000) than many of the models who appear regularly in the Victorias Secret Fashion Show. So what is it going to take to get her, or someone like her, into the show?
