“It’s basically pornography,” shopper Jessie Shealy wrote on Victoria’s Secret’s Facebook page, referring to a ads on arrangement in her internal store in South Carolina. Shealy has teenage daughters who emporium from Victoria’s Secret’s PINK attire brand, that is targeted toward younger consumers. She told Business Insider she has called and emailed Victoria’s Secret and her internal mall, Columbiana Centre, to protest about a images she’s seen in a store.
Shealy’s biggest censure is that her store doesn’t have a order between PINK and Victoria’s Secret’s risque slip collection. This means that younger PINK shoppers are subjected to some of a some-more risqué imagery while they’re shopping.
“I’ve not been happy with a displays for a while though when a models are widespread leg, pulling down panties and even unclothed bottom women on a walls … it is VERY annoying for a family,” she wrote on Facebook.
These displays don’t seem to be unchanging in all of Victoria’s Secret’s stores. We visited a store in Manhattan and found that it did have dual graphic sections for any brand, with apart checkout areas.
