Victoria's Secret is under pressure to offer larger sizes Consumers are increasingly pressuring the world's most dominant lingerie brand to offer plus-size lingerie. Thousands of people have signed petitions in recent weeks for Victoria's Secret to offer larger sizes. Victoria's Secret controls a whopping 35% of the lingerie market, far more than any other retailer. The largest panty size it offers is XL, or equivalent to a size 16. The fashion industry defines plus-size clothing as sizes 12-24, though many retailers offer up to a size 28 to meet demand. Bra sizes are inconsistent. Some styles are offered up to a D, while others go up to a DDD. Still, many women feel they don't have a good selection at Victoria's Secret. The author of one petition, Dana Drew, said she loves her California Victoria's Secret store so much that she has a credit card there. She can't, however, buy lingerie there. "My money and my credit are good enough for them, but the fact that I can only buy items like perfume, lotion, and body spray sends the message that my body is not," Drew says. "Every year I watch the Angel fashion show and would love to purchase the items I see on my screen but can’t because Victoria’s Secret doesn’t sell plus sizes." Other petitions are encouraging Victoria's Secret to show more diverse body types than the ultra-thin models at its annual fashion show. Victoria's Secret models like Doutzen Kroes and Lily Aldridge are known to work out for four hours a day in the weeks leading up to the show. The brand recently ignited controversy with an ad campaign portraying a series of stick-thin models with the tagline "The Perfect 'Body.'" While the phrase was a play on the brand's "Body by Victoria" bras, many people were offended by how models were portrayed.
