So, I headed over to the Victoria's Secret, Torrid, and Lane Bryant.
Lets see what the websites' Valentine's Day advertisements look like!
We have Victoria's Secret's website. We see a very thin woman throwing her hands in the air.. so excited to be in lingerie for her lover on V-Day. To the left, we see where the shopper can choose to be 'Sexy, Romance, Flirty, Dreamy or Luxe'. So many options, so little time! If you click around the website, you'll see the Flirty is also Sexy, well the whole website is Sexy. We see lots of skin and very little fabric. We see moist lips (on their faces, people) and photoshoooopppp. Look at those titties! NEXT!
You know, if I was shopping on Lane Bryant for lingerie, I'd end up saying forget it! For real. These models are so NOT sexual in this lingerie.. Why? They MAKE clothes for plus sized women, so what the fuck is with these damn frumpy pajama outfits and these shots of either bra or panties, no full body shots for us. Could the fat models not fit in the camera or something? I call bullshit on you, Lane Bryant. I guess those titties are okay?
And Torrid is EVEN WORSE. They only have models in the pictures of tights or leggings; the teddies and panties aren't even put ON a model. How am I supposed to know what they look like? I see no titties!
So what did we learn today? I learned that plus sized women are just composed of specific body parts, and that we don't want to see each other in teddies because maybe we won't like what we see and we'll end up NOT shopping there. We learned that thin women are the happiest, and the sexiest.
We also learned that anyone shopping for Valentine's Day lingerie (at these three websites) is white. STUPID.
