Savage X Fenty versus Victoria's Secret
SAVAGE X FENTY
For years, lingerie brand, Victoria’s Secret, and their angels have dominated society’s beauty standards. The angels, stunning women that sold lingerie to other women who wanted to look like the angels have always represented a fantasy. This fantasy has been a great sales technique for Victoria’s Secret for many years; however, viewpoints on what women want to see from lingerie brands have changed and Victoria’s Secret refuses to play catch-up. The angels are the outliers of society. These beautiful women are made of great genetics that allow them to have that 5’9”, slim body, and stunning features; they have the genetics that a majority of women in the world do not have. Over the years, now, more women want to see models and fashion that are relatable, not fantasy. Many people want to see size inclusivity from Victoria’s Secret, but the brand won’t allow their fantasy of sexy women to evolve.
Enter Savage X Fenty, the lingerie brand that is taking shots at Victoria’s Secret’s brand. Savage X showed at New York Fashion Week, with a roster of size inclusive models strutting on the runway. There was even a pregnant Slick Woods walking half-naked sporting the brand’s panties. Savage X is achieving what people asked Victoria’s Secret for: size inclusivity, more races to model, and sexy comfort without the constraints. Ultimately, Savage X has the power to dominate the lingerie industry and put Victoria’s Secret below them just by acknowledging the changes that needed to happen in 2018 regarding the lingerie industry.
