I was never impressed by this lingerie brand. I've tried their sleepwear, loungewear, bras and panties. Out of these products, I liked the sleepwear the best. I find the silk short sets nice and cool for the summer. I've always been a large chested girl and my zoinkers are just too plump for these flimsy poorly sewn garments they call bras. VS bras are strictly hand wash garmets and don't ever make the mistake of throwing them in the dryer! They simply aren't industrial enough for my needs and for the price, they should be! Out of the three stores that are near my home, they never seem to keep 36DD sizes in stock. Also, the SA's are like used car salesmen! Upon stepping one foot in the store, they surround you and ask for your bra size loud and clear. They wisk you away to the most expensive bras in the building and insist you start a fitting room. I know they are "sales" people and need to sell stuff. But, I like to buy my lingerie on the down low! I find that Playtex and Vanity Fair (found at Target and Kohls) to have much more support and are industrial strength to hold up the boulders. I can even throw them in the wash on cold and the gentle cycle in the dryer and they last well over a year or so. For a more sexy look, I actually find Frederick's of Hollywood bras to be built like steel and they are relatively inexpensive. I can't even remember the last time I spent a cent in this widely adverstised, overpriced mega famous bra hut they call VS.

I recently ordered several summer dresses online and was greatly disappointed! The quality of the clothes is BAD! Of the 12 items I ordered I was satisfied with one (a tunic). The dresses all fit terrbily and the fabric was not worth the $$$. I am still happy with the quality of the swimwear line. but that's about it. Overpriced and tacky too.

Over the years, since I turned 13, I have been going to this store, because every other girl has. However, unlike every other girl in my area, I was overweight, and had curves in places where they couldn't imagine. I'm lucky to be shaped very well, however, and I'm a lovely hourglass shape, but with a big tummy. However, in my family, with women, we have very large breasts.
I am a 40E. And this store doesn't even carry a double D (DD). They hardly carry a D, and if you find a D, it won't be anything over 38D. So, dishearted on my quest to find a beautiful, sexy bra that would make me feel a bit more like the other girls, I focused on other things. I'm moderately small on the bottom. My behind isn't very big. So, I tried the underwear...and it wasn't for me. The material was just cheap, and I preferred Hanes to this stuff.
So, even more disappointed, I ventured off to other things the store had to offer, scents, and potions, lotions, and all things feminine. Well, if I can't dress like them, maybe I can smell like them?
I tried everything. From the ever popular Love Spell, to Amber Romance, to new things, and old things. Bronzers, eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipglosses, and mascaras. I even ventured into the blotting gel, the foundation, sunless tanners and the atomized perfumes.
The scents were all cheap, and plastic smelling, the makeup was too pricey for the quality (I'd say it's worth half of what they sell it for), and the perfume's packages sucked, and stopped working. I felt like failure. Why did it work for them, and not for me?
I'm 16 now, and I don't even go into this store anymore. The workers have measured me and have given me measurements ranging from 36C to 44F. One lady told me to go to the plus size store next to theirs to find a bra. Finally, I just got over it. I was better off without the dang place.
And now? Well, I'm happy to say that Wet N Wild beats out ANY cosmetic VS puts out, for under half the price, and that the bras from Walmart and Fredricks work just as well for me as the ever beautiful VS bras. That Hanes underwear is STILL better, and that shoes and clothes from bargain stores matches the quality of their clothes. As for scents, nothing can beat that delicious plastic scent of Love Spell, so I settle for the next best thing, a sweet, berry smelling body spray that gets me called "yummy" all the time.
It's a cheap store, with poor workers, and bad products. And honestly, I'm better off without it.

Pricey, but it is all in the label.
Regarding the pink side of the store, it is fun, their sweats are comfortable, their booties for indoor, or mild weather outdoors is fine, but it it is all good only regarding when things are on sale.
That is in the general for this store, the quality is not the best, therefore it is only worth it when it is on sale. (Christmas sales, etc, since sales arent common in the store.)
I do like their underwear for very good prices, try getting 7 for $25 (Canada) instead of 5 for $25 if you can!
All in all, the store is something to look out for, the overpriced clothings aren't usually worth it, without a sale going on.

I'm a 36C and I have found that VS has the only bras I can buy that have straps that don't continually fall down my shoulders. No matter how tight I make the straps on Maidenform and Lily of France, they still fall down. But I don't have that problem with VS. Their bras are so expensive though. C'est la vie!

I like that they make bikini underwear that is actually cute and sexy and washes well. I have tons..some from a few years ago that looks barely worn. i love them..but i don't care about having matching sets or anything.
Finding a bra there that fits and is comfortable was almost impossible. Biofit Demi actually fits like my other 36b bras...unlike everything else i tried at VS. You can't just order your size from their website, you have to go and try on their bras at the store, then order it online for the sale, since one kind will have a half inch gap in the cup and another kind will be too tight with the wires digging into your boobs, even though they both are supposed to be the same size.
Their clothes are horrible, cheaply made and soo tacky. I sent mine back. PINK stuff is awful, their cotton panties look cute but arent anywhere near as nice or comfortable as the regular VS cotton.
The lingerie is cute and I have lots but only worth it if it's on sale. I stick with the slips and babydolls. dont order a bustier or anything w/a corset unless you are very thin

I used to buy all my bras at Victorias Secret because I was very thin with small breasts and honestly, I didn't know any better. Now that I'm larger they don't stock my size in-store (36DD) and when I do buy their bras they are very uncomfortable. They don't seem to be able to make a bra where the wire doesn't poke into my armpit or ribcage. I honestly can't wear them anymore. Of course they do make wire-free bras but not in my size. Their underwear is fine. I often buy the 5 for $25 cotton pairs but they aren't my favorite. Lately, they have been having men working in one of the shops here. Yes, the men are undoubtedly gay, but none-the-less, I strongly prefer not to buy lingerie from men. So, I don't go into the shop the men work at. I think Victoria's Secret is really fixated on making breasts look bigger. Almost all of their bras have padding. I would recommend the store for teenagers and those with small breast but not really for anyone else.

So I'm jumping on the bandwagon and writing a review for their bras and panties only (never shopped their clothing line).
First of all I have a couple bras from there that I LOVE, but besides the few that I have (body by victoria demi and very sexy plunge push-up) none of the others fit me correctly. I will keep repurchasing these bras until they discontinue them..which seems to be every couple years which is unfortunate. I am a 34DD which limits the pickings and they love to suggest a "sister size" aka- 36D which is dumb because if they were the same size then why would they make two different ones? They do not carry a lot of their styles in that size (only online) or they just plain don't make them which is a shame. My other qualm to the bras is that they charge an extra $2-$4 for being a DD which is just ridiculous and money isn't the point except for WHY? I wish a lot more of their bras weren't such overly padded but I'm sure a lot of girls like that and they do have a quite large selection.
Their underwear is great for semi cheap panties. I used to only shop the 5/$25 but with their semi-annual sales I can stalk up and most range from $2.99-$7.99 which I think is a good deal. I'm a big fan of "The Lacie" but target carries a pair almost identical (but with sizes and not one size fits all) for a few dollars less. Their underwear isn't going to last you a decade or anything like that but a good while at least.
I haven't ventured into their clothing range or anything but have tested some of their makeup. I think I remember everything being very sparkly and shimmery but well pigmented and a lot of their fragrances smell really nice though I can't comment on lasting power.
Overall I really like a few of their bras and I imagine I will be quite loyal to them! They have great sales and deals all the time and if you sign up on their website or frequent them often you get "free pantie" cards and sometimes $10 off a bra or gift with purchase.

I am not a fan of VS. I sometimes like the styles that they offer but really they are the same but not quite as good as La Senza in the UK. My (now ) husband insisted on buying me some lingiere there when I first moved to the US. Well, they didn't really stock my size or preferred bra type (balconette) or the colour that he particularly wanted. It was not a good experience with the sales girl trying to squeeze my 32 C/D breasts into a 34B - um no sales girl, they are not the same size! I was not impressed and we walked out of there with 2 pairs of knickers (I've worn maybe 3 times, nasty fabric) and 1 bra. The bra was a cottony material and has faded in the centre, what a lovely look.
I can't comment on the fragrance or other products but VS is sone of the places I'm least likely to shop for bras again.

I am a 32C, and finding that size in general department stores isn't possible so I have to settle for something that doesn't quite fit to save money. So, for special occasions, I have splurged on the $45 bras that make me look really good when I really want to look good. I have 5 or so. And even if you aren't going to buy a bra there, it's a good idea to get measured every 8 years or so, so you can at least know what your true size is, as it can change. And it is worth it to sign up for the VS credit card just to get the free really comfortable panties that look so good on you.
