Victoria's Secret 'A Body For Every Body' Is Probably Not For Your Body

When Victoria’s Secret released their new ‘Perfect Body’ marketing campaign last week, with the slogan plastered over a picture of ten tall, glowing, stick-thin models, they got an earful of righteous anger from social media. So the good folks at Victoria’s Secret tried to address their misstep yesterday, by giving the marketing campaign an updated name and slogan. The new title is ‘A Body for Every Body’.
