sexy undergarments? Perhaps she is a very reserved and proper lady that you might not expect to be wearing lacy little things

KateTheGreat's avatar

That the material she makes her damn bras out of SUCK.

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

She worships me from afar.

AshLeigh's avatar

@abysmalbeauty O.o so she’s my mom? XD (Gross)
@KateTheGreat is this so? D:
@Imadethisupwithnoforethought… Interesting! haha.

abysmalbeauty's avatar

@AshLeigh perhaps, is your mom’s name victoria? I know shes not my mom, shes not proper at all and her name is not vicky

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

Weird, I just had a conversation about how much VS bras suck, today.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@AshLeigh Oh yeah! I payed $50 for a bra that broke the next day.

syz's avatar

How to sell cheaply made shit for lots of money.

AshLeigh's avatar

@abysmalbeauty, well, no, her name is Patricia. But it could be a cover up… O.o
@ANef_is_Enuf, I’ve been hearing that a lot lately. O.o
@KateTheGreat, wow! Glad I never shop there.(: Dangerous Curves, FTW. Hah.

gailcalled's avatar

She understands that there is a sucker born every minute.

GabrielsLamb's avatar

That she has the strange hypnotic ability to sell bras and panties to women that do not fit, fall apart in the wash, discolor, and are the most uncomfortable albeit attractive to men pieces of garbage you’ll ever spend too much money on.

Hibernate's avatar

No fun. That’s her secret.

spykenij's avatar

I think its bra fitting. I went into that freakin’ store once or twice and the one time, they grabbed my next to last ex, felt her up and fitted her for a bra… Then they looked at me and when she opened her mouth, I just said, “I have gender issues, no.” I ran out after that. Never again will I step foot in that gropers haven…unless I get to work there :)

TexasDude's avatar

Victoria’s Secret is that Agent Provacateur makes much hotter and better quality lingerie.

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard between you and @Jude lately, I am doing way more window shopping than is healthy.

filmfann's avatar

She’s packin’

tinyfaery's avatar

Child labor?

gailcalled's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard: Who would spend $110 for this?

Does anyone here have any women friends or acquaintances who have the misshapen and distorted bodies that the models do?

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

That she is really a small cross dressing man.

filmfann's avatar

@gailcalled I would, and if she wants, she can wear that!

marinelife's avatar

That she overprices everything.

Ponderer983's avatar

Her secret is most women do NOT FIT into her under garments!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@gailcalled That’s where I get all of my lingerie from! It’s comfy!

gailcalled's avatar

@KateTheGreat: Maybe so, but $110 for a flimsy bra?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

All I know is that if I was going to pay $290 for a pair of undies, I just found ‘em.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@gailcalled That one isn’t so cute, but hell, I’d buy it if it looked nice.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf Link please? I love panty shopping!

TexasDude's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf the “good boy” in me is desperately trying to keep the “bad boy” in me from telling you to send me a link :P

@gailcalled misshapen and distorted bodies? Really? I prefer much curvier girls myself, but I don’t think these models are “distorted” or “misshapen.” They are definitely thinner than the average woman, but it’s kind of absurd to use such harsh adjectives.

blueberry_kid's avatar

A good bra is supposed to be overpriced?

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@KateTheGreat PMed. I would never actually spend that much, but I like daydreaming about it.

chyna's avatar

The secret is their models are beautiful, and you, too, can look like them, if only you would buy their flimsy, overpriced panties.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@ANef_is_Enuf Honey, panties are my thing. I’d probably spend that much, they are sooooo classy/sexy.

AshLeigh's avatar

Haha. Wow. Those are outrageous prices. :)
The Castle has some pretty great stuff, and it’s cheap. XD
Alaska, FTW.

Jeruba's avatar

That girls have something nice beneath their underwear.

TexasDude's avatar

Oh snap, @Jeruba is turning up the heat.

LuckyGuy's avatar

“These babies are not real.”

gailcalled's avatar

Fiddle: The models are abnormally tall and thin and have suspiciously large breasts. How many female friends do you have with similar bodies?

TexasDude's avatar

@gailcalled suspiciously large breasts? Are we looking at the same models?

And I know a few girls that are tall and thin like that. Like my last girlfriend. Who does not have a body image disorder and has not had plastic surgery, for the record.

Aethelflaed's avatar

@gailcalled Not really. The link you posted a few above? Tall, thin, sure, but only a B cup. In a modeling world where most women are tall, anorexic, and still have C-DD breasts, these ones look surprisingly realistic. I believe that her breasts are small enough to stay where they are without that bra, and without silicon. Now, I’m with you on the pricing, but maybe that’ll change when I’m no longer on a student budget.

gailcalled's avatar

Well, to be fair, (I say reluctantly…not in the mood for fair tonight), the models at Agent Provocateur have more realistic bodies than those at Victoria’s Secret.

I picked that bra in particular because it was the only one, apparently, that had no wires.

TexasDude's avatar

@gailcalled I haven’t even looked at the Victoria’s Secret models. I’ve been referring to the Agent Provacateur girls this whole time. That’s why I thought it was weird you were saying they have huge boobs and such.

Aethelflaed's avatar

@gailcalled I’m not saying those pictures are what I would show my daughter as what she should strive to be, but I do think they’re closer to showing how bras/tops/lingerie would fall on natural boobs (something I’ve had many, many problems with Victoria’s Secret over).

GabrielsLamb's avatar

My bra’s are expensive… $60.00 each, but they can be worn as strapless, cross backed, clear straps, they are sturdy as hell except for the eyelet hooks and they last me years.
so they are actually worth it. Not to mention, they make me look like I actually have a chest.
sadly I don’t

woodcutter's avatar

Her secret? Obviously she’s a slut.

mrrich724's avatar

In college, there was a project where we had to profile companies. A girl did VS:

Back in the day, part of the courting process involved a man buying undergarments for a woman, but it wasn’t good for a man to be seen buying said items.

By making a store that catered specifically to this, you didn’t have to worry about who saw you in the store, b/c they were also in said store!

The secret is that you are in there shopping for naughty tidbits.

MRSHINYSHOES's avatar

Big boobs and a nice tight ass.

Ponderer983's avatar

@MRSHINYSHOES OOO me – I never knew!

Pandora's avatar

How pink seems to hypnotize people into coming into their store to pay 12 dollars or more for a pink string to floss your butt.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Victoria’s Secret is that she is really 700 pounds, ugly as sin and has horrible body odor.

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@gailcalled Who would spend $110 for this? Women who have been bamboozled into it. The woman wearing it did not need a bar, as many other women don’t. If you can pass the pencil test buying a bra is just a wage of shame.

@Ponderer983 That avatar!! My eyes…..help me, my EYES!!!!!

CunningLinguist's avatar

It’s a reference to Queen Victoria, who was notoriously prudish. The suggestion is that her private life was secretly at odds with her public persona (priggish by day, kinky by night).

gailcalled's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central: What do bars have to do with this?

Judi's avatar

“If we don’t have a bra that fits them, just sell our largest cup size in a bigger inch size.”

AshLeigh's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate… I’d tap that too. ;)

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

That she’s never had a secret and doesn’t plan on it anytime soon. Oh and what @tinyfaery said.

mazingerz88's avatar

@KateTheGreat No bra would hold if it’s overloaded. That’s a compliment, btw. : )

Victoria’s Secret? That their products were all manufactured by horny devils, dwarves, orcs and goblins in huge caverns deep beneath the sewers of New York City! I know because I retired from that same job. Har har har!

KateTheGreat's avatar

@mazingerz88 Why thank you very much! ;)

spykenij's avatar

Ok, so since I knew someone who worked for that company, I will tell you… When you return anything ANYTHING to Victoria’s Secret, someone (I swear to God) has to smell them to take them back. Their sniff test is done to make sure no one stunk the stuff up enough to not be able to put back in inventory. Some guys who worked with this person I knew, would go overboard. I’m sure you can imagine. I totally forgot about that til now. Not sure how when it had to do with panties :)

AshLeigh's avatar

@spykenij…......... O.O just O.O

KateTheGreat's avatar

Why thank you @spykenij for your wonderful story. I’m sure you’ll be glad to know that I can no longer eat my midnight dessert.

Berserker's avatar

She slaughtered goats by moonlight on Christmas, and sold her soul to Beelzebub.

TexasDude's avatar

Fuck my life.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Makes lingerie shopping a little less glamorous, eh? ;)

TexasDude's avatar

@KateTheGreat that’s why we shop online :D

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard The internet is a cornucopia of convenient shopping and masturbation material. Please tell me whoever invented it got a Nobel prize. Goodness, I sound crazy tonight…

Berserker's avatar

Wasn’t Al Gore, I know that much, anyway.

CunningLinguist's avatar

If it makes anyone feel better, @spykenij‘s story isn’t true.

KateTheGreat's avatar

@Symbeline Al Gore is an asshat.

@CunningLinguist Good. I’ll trust you. You seem like a trustable person.

CunningLinguist's avatar

@KateTheGreat I am on intimate terms with a former Victoria’s Secret manager and friends with one of the store’s district managers. I would have heard about a sniff test if it was official policy.

mazingerz88's avatar

Only orcs and goblins sniff but not the horny devils and dwarves. They lick it instead. Har har har!

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@gailcalled Was in a rush and got my bras mixed up with my bars, but it still goes, any woman who can pass the pencil test, buying a bra is a wage of shame.

Pandora's avatar

Victoria’s real name is Victor and he looks like this only imagine 600lbs heavier and he wears a Z size mesh bras so the hairs can poke out, and he snacks on models once they get over 30 and uses their boney fingers for tooth picks.

spykenij's avatar

Well, they did the sniff test in central Ohio 11+ yrs back, according to a former employee who worked there. What reason would I have to lie? I didn’t work there, I’m just going off what an old ex told me. Making up BS is not my thing.

spykenij's avatar

@Pandora – Yay, BEARS!!!

gailcalled's avatar

@Hypocrisy_Central: Ah. However, perhaps it is best not to make a statement about “any woman” and her choice of undergarments or lack of. (And what, exactly is a wage of shame?)

I passed the test for years and yet wore bras for tennis, quick movements, running up and down stairs, chasing buses and taxis, and work…which was in a institution filled with kids from 7 -12 grade. Going bra-less would have been inappropriate, for me.

ucme's avatar

David Beckham is gay?

downtide's avatar

The first thing that crossed my mind is what @filmfann said. Her secret is that she is really a man. (By which I mean that the stuff is clearly designed by men, to be what they want to see women wear).

geeky_mama's avatar

@filmfann and @downtide—well of COURSE the secret is that she’s a man.
A very wealthy man these days…

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

@gailcalled (And what, exactly is a wage of shame?) That is the money they waste on a bra they do not need. Makes about as much sense as requiring a desk jockey to have a hard hat. IMO the only reason for doing so unneeded is they got shamed into it less they be called sluts, or hoochie.
