Victoria Secret knows that women like to buy pretty lingerie, and they know that seeing pretty lingerie on beautiful women helps to sell that lingerie even faster. But realistic images are what women really want to see , not heavily photoshopped ones.
The obvious airbrushing not only annoys customers, but it’s just another way for the fashion industry to cause more division, by making slim models with giant push-up bras, appear slimmer. Last October, people were furious when it seemed like they basically deleted a model’s left butt cheek and took out pieces of her arm for no reason.
Now, Business Insider reports that the retailer is changing its ways, and taking a closer look at what their customers are saying, and commenting on social media. And from the looks at their recent pictures, there is definitely less smoothing of the stomach lines and legs. About time they realized that it’s helpful, not hurtful, to see what women look like in real life in their undies.
