Do you ever flip through a Victoria’s Secret catalog and wonder to whom exactly they are marketing their product? I certainly don’t feel motivated to buy their lingerie when it is modeled by women so thin I can count their ribs and breast implants too large for their petite frames.
Still, this seems to be the only type of woman selected to appear in the Victoria Secret print ads or otherwise these days. I wish we could take it back to a simpler time when women didn’t contain silicone or have to subsist on a diet of ice chips and toilet paper to maintain their size zero physique in order to meet the societal standard of beauty.
Recently, I stumbled across a Victoria’s Secret catalog from 1979. The photographs are kind of hilarious, featuring women in a very victorian style background, flashing their bedroom eyes at the camera while performing totally mundane tasks in fuzzy heels. They are good for a laugh, but the best part? The women are all natural and thin, but not emaciated.
