It's Time Victoria's Secret Angels Looked Like the Average Woman

Are we ready for for a plus-size Victoria's Secret Angel? When Angels Elsa Hosk and Jac Jagaciak were asked that question, they said it's just a matter of time before we see some fuller curves strut down the Victoria's Secret catwalk.

Jac told the Daily Mail:

I think the whole world is more open to plus-size [models], and I am sure at some point [Victoria’s Secret] will be ready for it.

At some point? Does she mean some point as in next season or some point as in the year 2035? Because this should have already happened by now. 

Hosk seemed to imply that opening up the diversity of nationalities may have paved the way to more diverse body types. The Swedish model tells the Mail:

Right now, there are a lot of Angels represented. We’re from all over the world We come from different backgrounds. We all had different lives before this, so it is really interesting how a lot of different nationalities are represented, and it is super cool.

Yes! SUPER cool. And you know what else would be super cool? If you all weren't six feet tall with five percent body fat! Super. Duper. Cool.

Of course if you asked any of us mortals if we're ready for a plus-size Angels the answer would be, "Honey, we've been ready." Remember when Lane Bryant launched their lingerie line with that campaign of women saying "I'm no angel!"? It was a pretty pointed dig at a certain retailer who seems to be ignoring a lot of potential customers!

But let's not call them "plus-size," okay? After all, the average size for an American woman is 14. To Victoria's Secret that may be plus, but for most women that's just normal.

And when we do finally see average-sized women on the VS catwalk, let's make sure one of them gets to wear the fancy, bazillion-dollar, Swarovski crystal bra. That honor should not be reserved for the slimmest.

Okay, Victoria's Secret. You have your instructions. Now what do you say about making this happen, say, in the next year or two instead of making us wait until the next century?
