Victoria's Secret: Is society putting too much pressure on women to have the "perfect bodies"?

  • Not only Victoria's Secret does it, it just needs to end

    Many ads, on TV, in magazines, have beautiful, SKINNY girls being the center of attention. When guys see them (most) will comment on their appearance. When most ads have women who's body/face has been altered in some way to make them look "more pretty", it's hard for girls to have confidence. Honestly, I'm jealous of all those ads, why? Because they have perfect hair, perfect bodies, perfect face. They are just beautiful and perfect and everyone loves them

  • Victoria's Not A Secret

    With sexy ads come envious minds. Victoria's Secret ads among many others are becoming more focused on women having the most sexiest and most perfect bodies: rather than selling a product that actually portrays a normal women's body. Pressure is being put on women, from society, to be as skinny and as perfect as one can possibly be. This is not a great thing for our young girls who are starving themselves on purpose everyday, just to have that perfect body they see on the ads. Pressure is being put on young women and older women alike to be what they aren't. Instead of loving themselves for their imperfections, they idolize the Victoria's Secret models as the ideal way to look. If the pressure on our women doesn't subside, many women will take drastic steps to be perfect, like going under the knife, which could put their lives in danger.

  • Yes, there is much pressure on women to have perfect bodies

    Although over the years there has been some improvement, there is still substantial pressure on women to look at certain way. Victoria's Secret has changed the name of this campaign to "A Body for Every Body", due to the outrage the original name sparked. Advertisers need to wake up and realize that type of advertising is more often than not, going to fail in the future. When a women looks at an ad and knows full well that she does not resemble the woman in the ad in any way, she is not going to buy the product.

  • Yes victoria's putting too much pressure on women to have the "perfect bodies" .

    Yes victoria's putting too much pressure on women to have the "perfect bodies" .
    City officials cited evidence in The American Journal of Maternal/Child Nursing and elsewhere that more than 80 percent of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat, that girls’ self-esteem drops at age 12 and does not improve until 20, and that that is tied to negative body image.

  • YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Be Yourself

    GIrls need to be themselves...!!!!!!!!! Stop trying to be what your not. Your beautiful just the way you are. You are perfect for being you. You are an amazing person for being you not no one else. Dont care about what they say. Their just upset you are more beautiful then them.Be you girl!!!!!

  • Yes, it is putting too much pressure on girls to have the perfect bodies.

    Girls should not be focusing on these types of these things. I am very upset to see that girls are posting pictures on social media trying to be like the victoria's secret models. Kendall jenner, bella hadid and gigi hadid, they are all bad examples on girls. They post pictures of themselves looking the best of their abilities and no one really sees what they look like without makeup or without any plastic surgery and fake stuff. Super upsetting.

  • Society is putting too much pressure on Women even if they don't know it.

    Women that are bigger in size are not so confident because of the images in their heads of what they are supposed to look like. And those pictures were put their by movies, the media, newspapers, and generally society. Women need to feel confident in all they do. We should try and make them comfortable in their own skin.

  • Yes they are

    Girls feel like they need to be perfect. Big breasts, skinny bodies, thin legs and so on. In reality, it doesn't matter what other people think of you because you are who you are and there should be no changing that. Be proud of who you are, there's a reason you turned out the way you did. Embrace you're INNER BEAUTY, because not everybody can see it.

  • Yes There is too much pressure on girls

    When girls see all of those ads with the perfectly shaped women, most of the time they hurt themselves to try to look like that. Some girls stop eating as much as they should or stop eating all together which is so unhealthy, just because of someone they see on tv or in a magazine. The truth is most of those models, specifically Victoria's Secret's models aren't even allowed to eat real food which is sad. And if you think about it they would have to have like breast implants or something because its basically fat and with that diet, they wouldn't have chests that big. So if girls think that they should for some reason need to look those women, they should know that it's all fake and completely ridiculous. JUST BE YOURSELF

  • Of course I agree.

    I agree with the question being that women starve themselves to fit into the world. Women should be able to live freely without worrying about what others think of them while loving themselves and being themselves. We should all help women be healthy and help each other together to be stronger.

  • A short yes with an if and a long no with a but

    The fashion industry thrives off of people wanting to look great. So there is no reason they shouldn't put out "the best looking people." But it is all a matter of opinion anyways. The best looking people can come in many shaped and sizes, it's just about being comfortable in your own skin. My best advice to people who want perfect bodies is to understand what they really want and make that their goal.

  • You, people, are the ones putting pressure on women to have the perfect bodies.

    Let's analyse the question, let's look closely to the words forming it. There is no Victoria's secret. These is only a public opinion. You reader, the public, the people are the only ones to decide what should and should not be called "fat". You are the ones who define words. The definition of any word in the dictionary is a result of subjectiveness, the result of the "common opinion".For exemple, how would you define the word "perfect" ? There is no real definition. There is only your opinion. So there is no pressure on women to have the perfect bodies as everyone has a different definition of "perfect".

  • No, society is not putting too much pressure on women to have the "prefect bodies"

    No, society is not putting too much pressure on women to have the "prefect bodies". Many companies including Victoria's Secret are including plus size models and lingerie in their products and advertisements. Society is putting pressure for women to be healthy, and every body type has a different level of what is considered healthy.

  • There is not a lot of pressure on girls having the perfect bodies.

    There are barbies,models,ads and more things that include plus sized women or colored women or men so they shouldn't feel pressured and also i don't,think any men would expect the perfect body is just not possible.Girls should just be confident cause everyone is beautiful and who cares what people think.

  • There isn't too much pressure on girls

    It's their choice to be affected by the models. It's their choice to starve themselves. They shouldn't be affected by it because many of the model's pictures are photoshopped and sometimes there are invisible men just to make their hair perfect. There are many schools that have uniforms and many school don't do that type of stuff.

  • More than the out shows

    Women need to feel confident in all matters of their body. No matter how skinny or fat or even normal sized a women most likely will no feel confident on their body or themselves. Therefore, Victoria secret is promoting confidence in women that a skinny or rather smaller women cwho also has flaws and is probably not 100% self confident and happy in their body is gong out and making a statement and showing the world that no matter size,nationality, color, self confident, or self conscious can be beautiful. These models are putting themselves out there not because they love the way they look. But because they are OK with themselves at that particular time and ok and confident are different. These models are showing little girls that they are beautiful. Because they are themselves. These models are trying just as hard to be happy with themselves just as a women who is not happy with themselves and has no self worth. But we are ALL beautiful within and without. Think of it as this... A stretch mark as a shiny little mermaid gill coming out on your body. A beautiful way to express yourself. A tummy roll. A secret little patch to remind yourself yo be beautiful on the out and the in. Be-you-tiful. Your more then just a number your a hater and a lover

  • There is not

    No, there is not too much pressure on girls to have the perfect bodies. I mean think about it. We have plus sized models, we have barbies that are plus sized. You could say guys care about how girls look, but in a song it says " Silicone parts are made for toys " a guy sings this song. This shows he doesn't care how us girls look.

  • Ye ye ye

    Um yes thurvid i i ii i i i i ii i i i i i ii i i i i i i i i i ii i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i

  • It's an advertisement

    More women are going to buy a particular bra if they think it makes them look amazing, and same thing for men buying things for their girlfriends and wives. There is nothing wrong with that, it's a business. I admit that there is a lot of pressure to look pretty, but it is a person's choice to care that the societal ideal is something they must uphold. I don't think many people expect the average women to look like this. I can see the arguments why women could be holding themselves to impossible standards but the fact that Americans have created an ideal body in no way means I, or any other woman, is obligated to have an ideal body.
