The lingerie giant, that is now being rebranded to The VS Collective, has been condemned in the past for promoting unattainable and unrealistic standards for women. VS has also faced scrutiny for its lack of diversity and its lack of representation for other body types other than super-thin.
Bridget Malcolm, who wrote an essay for Harpers Bazaar in 2018 detailing her struggles with anxiety and an eating disorder, shared a story with fans on TikTok.
Malcolm found the bra she wore during the 2016 runway show.
“I found my bra from the 2016 Victoria’s Secret fashion show. It is a size 30A, I am now a size 34B which is healthy for me.”
The model then puts on the bra to show how tiny the underwear is in comparison to her healthy body now.
She then shares images from the show and writes “Look how big it was on me, the sadness behind my eyes from the 2016 show breaks my heart.”
Ed Razek rejected her for the 2018 VS show claiming her body “did not look good enough,” the TikTok video states.

“Victoria’s Secret your performative ally-ship is a joke” the 29-year-old concludes.
