I have quite mixed feelings about this campaign… on the one hand, it’s really nice to see underwear for (bust) heavier women, because they should not be doomed to wear grandma bras. And the sensitivity of women by sharing their imperfection is so relatable.
On the other hand, it’s being taken to the extreme by taking by only taking plus-sized models, no average sized models. I perceive the #noangel as VS bashing, which is not very nice (saying as a person who will never ever support this dumb company and their ED promoting models by buying their products).

Agreed! I thought the same thing about VS.

Except being thin isn’t an ED. There certainly are cases of thin women having ED’s, but in general ALL over weight women have ED’s.

Thats just not true. There are literally dozens of diseases that can cause overweight. For example some thyroid diseases,
lipoedema, heart weakness,…

Please, like ten percent of obesity is caused by health issues. The rest is just poor diet and exercise….why has being fat skyrocketed in the last few decades? We all didn’t magically get bad thyroids. But we definitely started eating more junk food. It’s diet and exercise.

While I would agree that rising obesity is most due to increased reliance on junk and processed food and little exercise, I would frame that as a problem associated with lifestyle as opposed to being an ED. For instance, while it is known that Asians are more genetically predisposed to diabetes, those that live in the USA exhibit an even high incidence of type 2 diabetes. This can be explained by lifestyle and disordered eating. Disordered eating, by the way, is broader than ED.

there are also more women who are taller and more athletic.
My body fat is very low, but im 5’10” and my butt and legs from track are bigger than the rest of my frame.
If you shrunk me down to a 5’3″ frame id be a size 2, 5’6″ id be a 6, and at 5’10 id be a 10, which is larger than most models.

exactly, I’m 6 ft I’m never gonna be a size two– size 6 and i am super skinny- prefer being a size 8 for my frame and I’m still thin.

I’m no angel either (as in a VS angel), but I’m pretty happy with my perfectly average size 6-8 US body for which I eat relatively healthy and exercise regularly…. where’s my representation? It’s either one end of the thin spectrum to other end of the obese spectrum? And yes, these women are beautiful and I’m not a doctor, but I would bet they would all fall in the obesity category. Sooooo, neither extreme is considered “healthy” in general terms (extremely thin/extremely overweight) and yet we have these massive ad campaigns and runway shows for both? I’m not trying to… Read more »

I feel like I’ve been saying this forever. I feel like we’ve ALL been saying this forever. I don’t know why it isn’t happening. In the beginning, being a model meant having kind of an unattainable image: skinny, tall, “perfect” (hope you get the quotation marks). Now here’s the counter-movement: the plus-size movement. But what about the regular consumer? I’m the same size as you and I may love the clothes these women (skinny or plus) are wearing but I’ll have no idea how they’ll look on me. I don’t feel represented, and I should, not because I’m a special… Read more »

Agree with both of you. My problem with fashion doesn’t end there, though. I also think it’s stupid to sell fashion as art and inspiration. It’s a very profitable industry. All it inspires is consumerism. In the end we buy stuff that is currently in and won’t be the next season, and we all end up looking the same anyway. Where’s the big inspiration and the freedom of self-expression there? We could use second hand clothes or ethically sourced but not *fashionable* (in the sense of H&M that has a new collection every 2 weeks) that would be of better… Read more »

Though I agree with the comment about the desire of seeing “normal”, “average” women on the runway, I strongly disagree with the “fashion is not art” comment . It is. Please, do not compare the work of designers, that do wonders ( printing, fabrics, shapes, volumes) and the work of socialites / instagram wanabees who dress the same on the internet / “mass brand” like H&M, Zara, VS or others. Elsa Schiaparelli ‘s embroideries were masterpieces in terms of technique, color and originality. Christian Dior’ dresses were marvelous .The quality of Chanel’s suits is undeniable. The way Yves Saint Laurent… Read more »

I will give you that Fashion can be thought provoking and it had big impact on society (thanks god we stopped wearing victorian dresses and moved on to practical trousers, for example). But even the fashion giants shown at fashion weeks, I would not call all of them highly innovative and inspirational. Mostly exclusive is the first association. Just because you shape the lapels differently than last year and move shouders forward from three seasons ago, but do not conceptualize your work to anything else that actually matters – how do we live, how do we move, work, commute, (re)use… Read more »

I understand and appreciate your answer, but we have a complete perception of reality. When I see stars in the sky, I do not see any differences between them, and they are completely useless in my daily life. However, I am capable to accept the fact that astronomers may find them extraordinary , and that their work is of value. Just because you do not see something, or just because you have an unsubtle vision of something does not mean it does not exist. The best example might be colors: saying ” it’s red” is, for sure, practical, but some… Read more »

sorry but high fashion is art, high fashion is not h and m or the kardashians. there are a lot of posers and fakes but there are some amazing genius’s in fashion.

isnt it insane that the bmi the majority of people find most attractive- around 21-22 is not represented in modeling? well lingerie modeling and commercial modeling it is, but none of the big names or the big camp gains go these women. its either the sticks or the fat assses.

I know! This is the ideal BMI for health, longevity and primal physical attractiveness, but the fashion industry keeps on giving us skinny vs obese. It’s so messed up.

Why can’t we have a campaign with models of all shapes and skin colors (maybe someone who is transgender as well) that doesn’t bash anyone else? Rihanna is getting so much love for her inclusive foundation shades so obviously consumers are interested in supporting diversity. I strongly dislike VS but #ImNoAngel just seems so petty to me.

Imagine if Victoria Secret ran a campaign that said #Imnoplussizemodel. That would be received well, I’m sure. Such a double standard.
