Re: Victoria's Secret is "Out of Touch"

I was in the store yesterday. I do agree w/ a couple of the comments the posters made, but I still like their bras. I have many and they were very comfortable and
long lasting . Also, all their workout wear and sweats are 40% off in stores this weekend..

@CLEM  Yes, really. I think the ads and mall store windows  when I walk by with my young granddaughters send the wrong message.

@KKlim

my 22 year old daughter still love their bras, their undies, and their loungewear/athletic wear. she never buys full price and always wait for good sales or coupons.

 

the stores in our mall are ALWAYS packed.......same with their outlets store.

Re: Victoria's Secret is "Out of Touch"

i think that at one time, vs had some nice scents and lotions. i've never really cared for the undergarments.  looked and felt poor quality, not my style.  then they started "updating" all the fragrances, took away all the old ones. 

they all smell like something a teenager would wear.  haven't been in a vs store in years.

I can be appreciated for my brain and capabilities and still want sexy underwear.

 

My biggest beef with VS has always been their poorly made and ill fitting bras.

I never, ever thought of VS for every day lingerie.  Even when I used to buy VS, it was for special occasions only — honeymoon, date night, romantic vacations, etc.  They were never for comfort or longevity for me.

@KittyLouWhoToo  I agree. I’ve mentioned here my big color splurge is my matching colored, lace undies...purchased through other catalogs, dept. stores where tastefully displayed. Yes, my brains, not panties should be appreciated.

Personally, I like appreciation for both my brains and my body.

 

Not necessarily at the same time, but......
