Yesterday, Victoria's Secret CMO Ed Razek made it clear in an interview that transgender women (or transsexuals, as he said), are not welcome in the VS runway show. An attempt was made to amend the situation with an insincere apology. And in the same interview, he defended the lack of inclusivity in their shows, talking about how they were more inclusive than everyone else in 2000, and saying that these skinny models are part of the company's brand. He also tried to defend the shows by saying that they've had pregnant models in the show (none of whom were visibly pregnant at the time, by the way).
And this lack of inclusivity goes past the runway. Victoria's Secret only carries sizes 30A to 40DDD. There are people smaller than 30A and there are plenty of people larger than 40DDD. Not to mention the fact that many people have been sized incorrectly by VS employees. You can't sell someone a bra that doesn't fit correctly, and you can't expect praise and good business for lacking inclusivity in sizes.
So, what we want (and have wanted for a long time) is for Victoria's Secret to be more inclusive on and off the runway. Include models who aren't stick thin, who aren't cisgender, who aren't something straight out of a man's wet dreams. Make bras for women. Bras that are comfortable, bras that are functional, bras that are made of better materials. We don't want bras that only cater to men's desire to drool over us, and we especially don't want them from a company that makes it clear that they have no interest in putting a normal woman on the runway. Everything about Victoria's Secret currently caters to men looking at women, not to the women who are actually going to be wearing the bras. Include more diverse models and sizes, and fire Ed Razek. The company need to move forward and get with the times or we will make sure it fails.
