Plus Sized Model Is Shattering All The Beauty Stereotypes By Recreating Victoria Secret’s Photos

A picture is worth a thousand words. And Tabria Majors, a model from Brooklyn New York used just that to say a few things to Victoria’s Secret.

Victoria’s Secret is America’s biggest lingerie company. Owned by Les Wexner and family, Victoria’s Secret is everywhere. As Sarah Wasilak of Pop Sugar writes, “[Victoria’s Secret]’s everywhere— plastered on one of the biggest billboards in Time Square, on your TV screen, and in the pages of the magazine you read.” You’d think that a company catering to such a large market would encourage them to use more diversity in their ad campaigns. However, this isn’t the case.

Throughout the years, Wasilak described diverse iconic angels. Those like the curvy Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, and Naomi Campbell. These models hung up their wings and started pushing an “increasingly svelte woman.”

“Victoria’s Secret put [this body type] on a pedestal by featuring this idealized figure in all its ads and certainly on its runways. This single-track version of unattainable perfection if what Victoria’s Secret continues to publicize today” wrote Wasilak.

Recently, a Brooklyn-based plus-sized model named Tabria Majors made waves after she posted photos specifically for Victoria’s Secret and all other plus-sized doubters that may be out there.

The subsequent praise and support she gained after posting the photos were much more than she bargained for. Majors posted a few pictures of herself, looking to spread awareness about the rigid beauty standards, recreating Victoria’s Secret advertisements.

“Maybe I’ll be a Victoria’s Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain’t happening in real life,” she captioned the first set of pho-0otos.

And she looked fierce!

Women everywhere seemed to respond positively to Major’s little project.
