What Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show should’ve taught Victoria’s Secret
This Victoria’s Secret customer is reevaluating her shopping choices
I’ve been shopping at Victoria’s Secret for more than a decade. With a 36DD (homegrown, not purchased), wearing cheap bras stopped being an option by my college years — when I needed a bargain the most.
Uncomfortable, ill-fitting bras are right up there with unknown particles on my contact lenses; it will mess up my entire day. With a jeans size that has ranged from a 6 to 12 over the years, I can still wear everything from yoga pants to hoodies to undergarments from Victoria’s Secret franchise. So there was a sense of entitlement when I’d hear women complain that Victoria’s Secret didn’t carry their sizes. My response was always the same: “Why not just buy stuff from other companies that do sell your size?”
But watching Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show made me reevaluate that flippant “Just go somewhere else” mindset.
