I love to watch the Victoria's Fashion Show on television. I do buy some of their bras and camis.

I enjoy reading their catalog which I get many times a year. I have ordered from the catalog and am always happy with my choices.

MJ, GB, ronjohn...

Actually, my point was why dont they have these fashion shows with men so us woman can watch! All in light hearted fun of course

Flourgirl, I'm with you, I felt fat after watching that show too! Obviously some of those outfits would never be worn by any woman such as the one with wings Seemed like most of the models were nervous they would fall down from the height of their pumps and the weight of the wings on their back

I'm with all of you ladies here about your frustrations with VS and their sizing. They cater to tiny people! Which to me are young girls. For instance, my daughter (age 15) asked about a gift certificate to VS, and I said no, it's lingerie for woman not young girls, and then she told me they have a line of under garments for younger people! Wholly ****! This doesnt come as a total shock seeing as everywhere you go you see young girls wearing g-strings that hang out of their pants, but not on my daughter!

In The Kitchen....definately mention the above comments by myself and the other woman with regards to sizes for the average woman who is not a size 2 and a 32-34 B. Also that they promote sales to younger and younger girls who would actually fit these sizes! Dove brand of products, now promotes a healthier view of woman, so that younger girls and woman do not feel the need to be "skinny" and "perfect".

I can honestly say I never had a problem shopping at VS - My only peeve is the cost of their products - also - very few people look like their models - I prefer to buy my intimate wear at stores that have the same type product but at 1/2 the cost!!!!

I agree, half the price for the same item! They charge way too much for simple under garments.

Nope, it was all her doing. Not exaclty the items I would have picked, though...

Does Frederiks of Hollywood still have a catalog?
