Women around the world have revolted again lingerie conglomerate Victoria's Secret. While it is well known that Victoria's Secret focuses on using Angles that meet certain physical requirements, the company is now having to move forward into the 21st century and will hopefully add some plus-size models to their line. The buzz all began when Elsa Hosk and Jac Jagciak, Victoria's Secret Angels, were promoting the brand toward the end of July 2015. The promotion in Times Square lead to an interview where Hosk shared her desire for the fashion industry as a whole to embrace the plus size woman with open arms!

Daily Mail in the United Kingdom posted the photo shoot along with the model bios. The recreation challenged Victoria's Secret with representing all body types include a plus size mode, without all of the photo shop. This shoot included women of all ages, sizes, occupations, body styles, and looks - it was not a cookie-cutter shoot.

"I think it would be a way to embrace us and make us feel like they 'get it.'" said Bidot during an interview with EOnline. im no angel Fruit of the Loom has introduced their "Fit for Me" campaign and Layne Brant's "I'm No Angel" marketing came to social media with a storm. The standard for sexy is quickly changing both in the public eye and, finally, in the eyes of the fashion industry. Sydney's Closet strives to find the perfect model to fit our brand and size. We make all of our samples in a (true) size 16 measuring X bust - waist - hips. As Bidot says, "why does it have to be straight size vs plus-sized. I think it is one big industry." Change.org has a petition running for the sexy lingerie line to add more plus-size options to their line of sizing. The petition currently has 2,400 supporters and is looking for more in an effort to get women and girls of all sizes the options they need and desire. A plus size Victoria's Secret model would mean a huge leap into the present day and age for the multi-billion dollar corporation. Popsugar listed the top 12 plus size model who would kill it on the runway. Who would you want to see as the first plus size Victoria's Secret model?
