People Don Their Skivvies to Push for Body Diversity at Victoria's Secret


Last weekend, a group of San Francisco body positive activists wore their Sunday best undergarments, and stood proud and tall (and short) (and skinny) (and fat) in front of a Victoria’s Secret store. Their message? Love your body, even in the face of the photoshopped-to-hell-and-back photos we see in the media.

The group was organized by About-Face, who says they specifically sought out Victoria’s Secret and Abercrombie & Fitch because they “refuse to include more diverse bodies in their clothing design and/or advertisements.”

Hmm… maybe those companies could take a page out of Debenhams’ extra rad look book? Not only are they no longer photoshopping their models, they’re also casting a diverse array of models. You know, the types of people who actually wear their clothes. Crazy, I know.
