Lingerie brand Victoria's Secret has been under fire lately for making statements that the brand would not cater to plus-size women. This year, the ultra-famous Victoria's Secret runway show was watched by fewer people than ever, when it had aired on television on December 2. 
Despite having starred supermodels like Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner - two of the biggest names in the fashion and modelling industry, the show garnered only 3.3 million viewers as compared to the last year's 5 million. The drop in viewership could not only be due to Ed Razek's insensitive comments about the LGBTQ community and plus-size models but also due to the sudden change in airing the content. The brand had a running contract with CBS and was new to ABC.
Additionally, the night on which Victoria's Secret show aired, Ashley Graham, who continues to be the driving force behind body inclusivity and body positivity, posted a series of photographs on her Instagram from her Elle lingerie runway show. The photo series featured a range of models of shapes and sizes with the caption #BeyondBeautySize. This seems to be a direct hit to Victoria's Secret.  
At this year's Victoria Secret show, Behati Prinsloo, model and wife of American singer/songwriter Adam Levine, made her comeback on the runway post having two babies. She even defended the retail brand by saying, "people need to understand that it's a show. It's not saying negative or positive about any body type, its 'this is who they are'".
