Now, I have had a love-hate relationship with Victoria’s Secret for a long time. You know the ones!
Those on again off again toxic type relationships that your mom warned you about.
The thing is, you already know you should leave, you’ve seen the red flags! A breakdown in quality? Check! The discontinuing of your favorite brands? Check! The let down from new brands? Check! so you finally decide to break it off.
But! You still stalk their social media and keep your subscriptions, then BOOM, there it is, in bright come hither hues of pink and white; the renowned Semi Annual sale!
“Don’t give in girl! You know you can do better.” But you give in anyway -effectively forgetting all the abuse you’d endured over the years-, because bras which are usually way more dollars.and too many cents than you can afford, are slashed to ridiculously low prices!
And the apology is so convincing, “revolutionary designs, extended sizes, sturdy fabric, fuller coverage,” so you forgive the bastards and before you know it you are ‘checking out’.
A shipping notification and perhaps a 10 day wait later, you are collecting your brand new shiny VS package filled with goodies, and praying to the bra gods that they live up to their claims.
Inside the bag were four lightly lined, underwire bras from the Dream Angels Collection in black, blush and pink zink (whatever that is), size 38DD.
Up to that point, they’d delivered on accuracy, as I received all of the items that I’d ordered, hooray!
Immediately, I was disappointed. While I enjoy trying new things I’m a creature of habit (aren’t we all?!) and I always order the exact same bras.
I mean once you find one that works for you it makes no sense changing it right? Especially since finding the perfect bra is almost next to impossible!
But what happened to Victoria’s Secret? The bras, all of them were, sub-par at best. The material is flimsy, the straps are thin and stretchy. Support? Minimal!
Do they still know what Dd’s look like? How heavy they are? How much support is necessary to carry these boulders? These were definitely not the same bras I’d bought 3 years ago.
The entire construction felt cheaper and none of them, though the same size, same style, and from the same collection, fit the same. Spillage here, arm boob there, bouncy boobs everywhere.
Where have all the good bras gone? I remember years gone by when Victoria’s Secret was the only place I shopped for bras. They were viewed as the premier bra retailer ( or was it the fancy signature packaging?). Gah! The search continues for the perfect bra.
Meanwhile, do you shop at VS? How would you feel about getting 20% off the next item that you order? If you would be as ecstatic as I would then you should grab this opportunity because this is probably the only thing I’ll ever be able to give away!
