Continuing her crusade against Razek, Zak further describes Victoria's Secret's ignorance, noting how obviously they market towards men selling a male fantasy to women” and the complete disregard for the reality we live in: the reality where women go to work, breastfeed their children, play sports, care for ailing parents, and serve their country” and aren't limited by archaic ideas of femininity.
None of us really agreed with it from the beginning.” Plus, the company had just come out with another campaign celebrating women's individuality with the slogan To each, her own.” It was like ‘what if a woman wants to be in the show or watch it, why are we telling them what to do?'” a source we'll call Kate said.
The company has come a long way from its original data collection system — asking women, via a Craigslist ad, to come to its San Francisco headquarters wearing their best bra and take a photo of their breasts with an app that could calculate their bust size.
Ahead of the annual VS Fashion Show, model Robyn Lawley started a petition encouraging a boycott of the show due to its lack of size diversity, according to Teen Vogue ; she partnered with ThirdLove, who donated a bra to the Support the Girls organization for every Instagram post hashtagged #weareallangels.
ThirdLove, whose advertisements you've probably heard on whatever podcasts you listen to, has built a brand out of supplying an impressive number of sizes and colors of bras for women of varied body types—an obvious counterpoint to the homogeneous glamazon” look championed by Victoria's Secret—and ensuring they actually fit.
Whether it's a fun, flirty date night top that inspires a fashion brand , a desperate search for an ideal nail salon , or shopping for the perfect wedding dress that launches a custom-designed gown company , female entrepreneurs are taking inspiration for everyday experiences.
Once the company helps customers find their size, it's easy for them to order and reorder. Co-founding ThirdLove has been a rewarding experience for Zak.
