    I'm not saying we need to see a fat beer gut but the "dad bod" is certainly something that could appeal to not only women but men psychologically.

    "He looks ike me".

    Sex sells and we like to look at it. It's fashion ads for hormones. Usually reminds us of what we are not... but want. Anybody that ever bought 1 pair of CK briefs knows they are overpriced and still hold on tight to a skid mark.

    Ladies should always buy what they like... for themselves first... us later.

    VS has had plus sized models on their website for while now.
    Agreed.

    Women aren’t buying their husbands new underwear to replace the 25 year old skid-marked ones they just threw out because there’s a young hunk on the package.

    I call bullshit on this, you are at least 49% gay, the hot guys definitely sell product for you.

    Or is that me projecting?

    Hey Victoria's Secret can do what they want. Now I do think this will work about as well as Toxic Masculinity for Gillette. Well maybe not that bad but the brand has branding. It separates it from all the other female undergarment industry. Now they won't be able to differentiate themselves. Now it will be "overpay so you can look like an average person"

    At the end of the day, most people will pay for the label because they think of it as a status symbol. Nobody wears Polo because you think you are going to be hanging out with horses but its part of their advertising. Same with Nautica and boats. Yes I am dating myself but I am 52 now and don't care about clothing. You wear VS because the supermodels model for the company. Its like hair products or makeup. You think a woman wants Lena Dunhma out there doing a hair commercial? She ls the Mendoza line and most women can obtain her beauty. However a company would be better having lets say Tay Tay washing her hair in a commercial. However not many will reach that.

    I am not bothered by this because the days of my wife buying that overpriced stuff is over. However the idea of ripped dudes on my underwear packages makes me believe that target audience isn't us heterosexual men but women who are shopping for their husbands. Tired of seeing ratty underwear and sex sells. Maybe guys batting on the other side of the plate. Then again I don't understand advertising. Every woman eating a Yogurt seems to be having the best time of their life and that shit is nasty

    Good post. In the end it brings all the attention over to VS... as intended.

    I expect that type of shit from people like her.

    You'll hear it from others from that political side. They always have to have a dragon to slay... There is not an end to it.

    She was just hoping to get a reaction, probably has something to sell.

    Don't give it to her.
