It's no secret that Victoria's Secret is lacking when it comes to representing plus-size people -- and cellulite and body rolls, if we're keeping track -- despite the average American woman being somewhere between a size 16 and 18. One curvy model decided to prove that, yes, plus-size people (and pretty much anyone, TBH) can most definitely be sexy while donning some Victoria's Secret lingerie.

  • Tabria Majors posted several side-by-side images of her mimicking Victoria's Secret ads, and looked just as fierce as the thin model used in the ads.

    "Maybe I'll be a Victoria's Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain't happening in real life lol," Majors wrote in the Instagram caption. "Just paying homage to a few of my favorite pics/outfits from VS here and showing that curvy girls can rock (and sell) lingerie just as well as straight-size models."

    Just log onto the Victoria's Secret website, and you'll see that sizes only range from XS to XL -- and there's not much diversity in the models' body types.

  • People absolutely loved Majors's photo shoot, calling it all kinds of "empowering."

    "Yaaaasss @victoriasecret take notice!" someone else commented. "We would like to see all sizes represented."

  • It wasn't until this kind of representation that some people were convinced to actually buy some Victoria's Secret items.

    "I'm buying all of these 'cause of you," another person commented. "Thank you."

    To many, it can be hard to feel like you'll also look and feel sexy when there's only one type of person modeling the lingerie. 

  • Does Victoria's Secret need any more evidence that it needs to hire Majors and other curvy models, stat?
