So I know their are some exceptions, I've found times were VS had a sale going on and they had bras for 20 and panties for like four dollars, which in some cases IS cheaper than other stores. But when you go in their for a 50 dollar bra or 75 dollar lingerie set, what's the point? I'm not saying that I've never done it, VS is my favorite brand. It DOES make you feel sexy, and I'm sure your man likes the brand or just knowing that its from there, but why get ALL your lingerie from there?
-Not bashing VS, wrote a review for them on a Beauty and Health website and had a lot of feedback.
Is this true..?
i agree, also VS got a lot of criticism recently because a news broadcast did an experiment and sent an undercover news reported to several locations to buy underwear and panties and then the next day or two, return them for a refund and say it was used/worn/tried on. and the employees put a new tag on the 'used' panties and put it back on the shelves or racks and it was resold. basically they sell returned merchandised and used unhygienic stuff which is disgusting.
I like Vanity Fair myself but there aren't any Vanity Fair stores in my area. Also I've got a really weird sized chest and Victoria's Secret is the only place other than VF that I've found bras that fit well at. Places like JC Penny or Macy's or Walmart or what have you are all awkward, the cups are always too big or too small, the bands are always awkward and never sit comfortably around my chest.
When I can I go to VF because there's a shop right by my school (I'm in college) but when I'm home (Summer and Winter break) and I need a bra because one wears down, or I want to feel a little extra sexy VS is just the best option. They have sexy bras that fit perfectly and good sales on good quality products.
I'm a really awkward size/fit so it's tough to shop at places that don't specialize in bras because they never have the specific things I need to feel comfortable. They just have a bunch of generic things in various sizes, and the store clerks don't know how to help you/what to offer and suggest.
You can apply this method of thinking to a lot of other markets as well. What makes a pair of jeans that are already made of one of the most durable/rugged fabrics you can get worth $200-$300 when $75 will get you a pair of KEVLAR LINED jeans?
What makes a hammer, one of the simplest tools known to man, worth $50 when a dollar store one is just as good at smashing things?
I've bought some lingerie from other stores but they usually fell apart quickly or didn't fit as well after awhile (material would wear out). I'm all for buying lingerie at ANY store that will be worth it, but until I find one VS will just be the place I go.
Im with you on that, I don't see the point of buying a really expensive bra that nobody is going to see, and yes, and you can get good quality bras elsewhere that are cheaper. I'm sure most girls who shop at VS say the bras are prettier.
a lot of bras are that expensive. I just love their panties. their 5 for 25 is not a bad deal, really other underwear is not that much cheaper from what I have seen and the victorias ones just fit well, they are real cotton and not that cheapy polyester, and they are comfy and cute.
idon't like their bras though, my boobs aren't a good size for them because I am thin with DDs so I usually need certain brands.

if I had to buy something from there id wash the item before wearing it, which is such a hassle because it should be new and you paid a lot of money for it.
but yea I just stick to hanes and find local beauty stores to buy cheaper stuff from, sometimes you actually find cute things and fun colors and theyre definitely not used or worn because most discount local stores/privately owned business/shops don't accept returns/exchange on lingerie and they even put huge signs on the store windows and in the return policy which I like :) may be VS should learn something from that.
