Victoria’s Secret Adds First Plus Sized Model
Victoria's Secret has never been known for representing everyone. I mean, the majority of American women don't look like their models, and that is totally OK with me. As my mom used to say, if we were all alike, life would be boring.
With that being said, for the first time ever, a 'plus' sized model will be featured in ads for the luxury lingerie brand. Ali Tate-Cutler, who is a size 14, will be working with the brand in conjunction with their partnership with UK lingerie label Bluebella. She announced the launch on her Instagram page yesterday, which you can see below.
And just for the record, having a women represent what a lot more of us look like is awesome. And honestly, I don't think size 14 is 'plus size'. At all. Way to go, Victoria's Secret, and Ali Tate-Cutler.

At the launch today for @victoriassecret and @bluebella at their flagship store in NYC. I believe I’m the first size 14 on @victoriassecret? Regardless I’m pretty stoked to work with a brand I idolized when I was a teen. Great step in the right direction for bodies. Available online @victoriassecret and at select stores across the country and UK.
