Model Robyn Lawley Wants You to Join Her in Boycotting Victoria’s Secret

Victoria’s Secret has always been about the idea of sexy. They put purchases in those distinctive pink striped bags for a reason, and it’s to say “hey, there’s something sexy in here, you’re gonna have a good night if your partner is bringing one of these bags home.”

Robyn Lawley has something to say about Victoria’s Secret’s idea of sexy, though, and it’s that there’s a lot of things and people who are sexy that the famous brand has been ignoring.

I have started an online petition -link in bio 👆 JOIN ME and lets help change the minds of Victoria’s Secret to be more diverse and inclusive of body shapes and sizes on their runways! Victoria Secret have dominated the space for almost 30 years by telling women there is only one kind of body beautiful. – you can read more in the link of my bio why it’s so important to encourage diversity for our future daughters sake. Until Victoria’s Secret commits to representing ALL women on stage, I am calling for a complete boycott of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It’s time Victoria’s Secret recognized the buying power and influence of women of ALL ages, shapes, sizes, and ethnicities. The female gaze is powerful, and together, we can celebrate the beauty of our diversity. It’s about time Victoria’s Secret celebrated the customers that fuel its bottom line. Will you join me? 1 Sign the petition! 2 Encourage your friends not to tune in or attend the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show share a photo of yourself on Instagram, as you are (not airbrushed and beautiful), use the hashtag #weareallangels to share what makes you uniquely beautiful, please tag me so I can see (@robynlawley) and @ThirdLove For every person who shares a post with #weareallangels hashtag, ThirdLove will donate one bra to @isupportthegirls (a national non-profit that collects and distributes bras to homeless women and girls around the country !!!)

Yes, Lawley is calling for a boycott of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and competing lingerie company ThirdLove is making donations for everyone that uses her #WeAreAllAngels hashtag, which is also being used to promote the play Angels in America, so, you know, always check your hashtags before you use them, very important step.

I think the most shocking thing here is that Robin Lawley, who describes herself as 6’2″ and a size 14 on her Instagram, is a plus-sized model. And she’s almost too big to be plus-sized.

That is not that picture I have in my head when someone says “plus-sized model.”

It’s so crazy to me that the fashion industry can’t imagine women being any bigger than Robyn. I’m way bigger than she is and I can just buy whatever I need right off the rack. Hey, I think I understand what sexism is now.
