  • Victoria Secret's Love Your Body Campaign

    In Victoria Secret’s “Love your body campaign,” very skinny, tall models show off their bras and underwear. In this specific ad, it says “A Body for Every Body” (Mullins) while every model is the same size: extremely skinny.

Both ads set standards of what a body “should” be in our society. I, like many other females, do not fit into any of the body types shown in either ad. Many teenage girls, and even women, see bodies in ads and think “Why can’t I look like that?” It produces pressure to have a certain body type because if that body type is praised in ads shown around the world, then it will make their life better and happier. We feel a certain pressure to have our bodies the way others find flattering and “sexy.” If our body types are not considered “sexy” then we feel ugly or not happy with our body, even if our dream body is not attainable because it is unhealthy or naturally impossible. Women go to major lengths to become skinny just so they are society’s perspective as…
