I'm a pretty big VS fan--- I buy their bras, lingerie, undies, clothes, and pjs. (However, I DO NOT buy their perfumes which all smell like a french wh*rehouse to me, yuck!) Granted, their clothes are a bit hit or miss, but when they hit they hit a homerun. I recently bought the most divine top from them to wear to my husband's company's Christmas party. It was layers of sheer beige silk ruffles and I paired it with a beige satin sash and peachy pearls and felt like the prettiest girl at the party thanks to my good friends at VS.^_^
You also can't beat their loungewear for comfort and cuteness. Right now I'm wearing the softest hooded sweatshirt ever and cashmere/cotton sweater-knit lounge pants, both from VS. I'm warm and cozy and best of all, I look pretty frickin adorable.
Like I said though, it's hit or miss, so take your time, peruse their extensive catalogue over a cup of green tea, and don't be afraid to return anything you don't like because they have a great return policy. I once bought a shirt from them many years ago and although I washed it according to its care tag, it still got stretched out in the wash. I complained to VS and they took it back no questions asked. In fact, if you look at their return form you will see that one of the reasons you can select for returning things is that they quality wasn't good enough. Now that's customer service.

If I could sum up VS in a single word, it would be, "overrated." Yeah, they have the hottest models on the planet, which must be where all my money goes when I buy a $50 bra that's only mediocre. I find that their clothing brand (MODA International, for example) is just cheap. The fabrics and/or construction are, in general, poor quality and almost always made is Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, or similar. The clothing does tend to be on the cutting-edge of fashion and you can find unique novelty clothing. I don't care for their cotton or cotton-stretch panties because they aren't as good as Hanes (in terms of lifespan). Their shoe selection (Colin Stuart, in particular) tends to be reasonably priced and ridiculously cute. Their bras, IMHO, aren't superior to any good-quality bra I've purchased at Target, JCPenney, or Dillard's.
And their shipping prices are too high for the speed of delivery.

The bras are good, but the clothes are awful. The clothes are cheaply made, and fall apart. And they are soooo overpriced for such poor quality!

Not a fan! When I was getting ready for my wedding in 2008, I went into VS to pick up a bustier to wear with my strapless dress. I wear a 38C which I don't think falls out of the common range. The associate told me they don't make bustiers "that big" and she gave me a 36B to try on. Needless to say, it didn't fit. I went to JC Penney and immediately found a bustier in the right size.
Other than that experience, I think all VS fragrances smell tacky and cheap. Like, sickeningly sweet or cloying and foody. The men's are okay, but you can do much better; same with their makeup. The whole store, to me, is a joke, and everything is so overpriced.

Love VS! I've been very happy with the majority of items I've purchased here. It's hard to find my bra size in some brands, but VS always has it. With good care, all of my undergarments last a good amount of time here. Some of the items are on the pricey side, but I look out for coupons I receive in the mail or via e-mail. I've been happy with the clothing items I've purchased, especially the yoga pants.

Overall, I think VS is a bit overpriced, but I still can't shop anywhere else. They're still the best when it comes to undergarments. I cannot same the same about the clothes. I've ordered clothes three times and they are made very cheaply and the sizes are not at all consistent. I gave a five since their signatured items are awesome. The mozaic bronzer/ blush in golden is the best blush I have ever tried. Love it!!!!

i love victoria's secret! its my favorite store!!!! i think their underwear and bras are super cute and they fit me pretty well. and next to some other stores they hold up pretty well in my experience. i like their PINK clothes but i think theyre one of those things that either fit you perfect or dont fit you at all. i dont find the clothes to be the best quality but i still like them. they have great make up (which i dont even wear a lot of anyway but i buy their beauty rush stuff sometimes and love that) and their fragrances smell really good i think. i wear "dream angels" from there at the moment :). one time they sent me the wrong thing in the mail and thats my only complaint so far. i feel bad for the people who have bad experiences with them cuz i think VS is pretty awesome!!!!!!!!!!

i'm a huge fan of VS! :)
even when i'm overseas, i'm glad they ship to those places so i can get my regular VS fix!
so far very satisfied with customer service (pre and post sales) and the clothes are of acceptable quality - bit on the expensive side though, but some of the designs are nice.

I've ordered from the online store a few times. I hate the quality of their sweaters! The only items I have that are actually comfortable to wear are their summer dresses. Even then, I'm afraid to wear them too often because they are not going to last through several washes.

I live in England, so VICTORIA’S SECRET is like a fantasy store for me; pretty underwear, clothes, toiletries, make up and fragrance under one roof? My last 6 holidays have been to the US, partly because I love VS stores….
I’ll start by commenting on the bras. I’m a 36DD, so I don’t have a lot of options in any store, unless I want to spend more money then my friends all pay; with my breast size it’s not like a bra is a luxury extra… I love that I can come to VS and pick up a lot of the same style’s as my sister for the same price. My only critism is the PINK range as it only goes to a C (?) Yes, I’m probably above the target age, but it all looks so pretty…
I also love the pyjamas, they wash well, so last me a long time. When I go on holiday people always ask me to bring a pair back for them…
I do have some outerwear (a blouse, a jumper and a velour jacket top) and have to say that the quality is great, and the sizes are true to size. Everything I have had washes great and lasts. You do get the quality you pay for in VS’s case, so I do have to treat myself.
However the prices are normally pretty high, if they had a VS over here I doubt I'd pay the prices. But as they don't, I'll continue paying for stuff that not a lot of other have :)
