Victoria's Secret is closing dozens of stores this year — here's why the brand has failed to keep up

  • Victoria’s Secret reported that it will close 53 stores in North America this year, up from 30 stores last year.
  • Victoria’s Secret has been criticised for a lack of inclusivity, in part because of comments made by the chief marketing officer, Ed Razek, in an interview with Vogue last year.
  • Brands like Aerie and Rihanna’s lingerie Savage X Fenty take a more body-positive approach toward sizing and marketing.
