What makes a woman desirable? Perfect features like a small waist or amazing cheek bone structure? Why is it that men want women they see that are just like the Victoria Secret models? What makes these models better than any other woman on earth?
It’s all really simple when you think about it. It’s men. We control what is favorable and what’s not. Most designers are men; remember that “Victoria’s Secret” is that she is a he. Men create such a high standard of what we want and what we expect that we made have dressed and dolled up our realistic woman’s nemesis.
Victoria Secret models over the last 15 years have been the goal image of most women in America. The impression that is given off by men is that these are the ideal future mates so many women started to do whatever it took to try to look like these beautiful women.
Eating disorders became something that was very common in the US thanks to the image of Victoria Secret models, every woman and young girl wanted to be as thin as these models and for some people it wasn’t possible without starving themselves.
Through the 90s and early 00’s this was one of the major issues that this country and even celebrities were involved trying to make themselves extremely thin. This health scare is still an issue to this day because of the pressure women put on themselves.
Women in the US almost always wore make-up but when when they looked at Victoria Secret models and felt like these women were flawless looking and not knowing that many of the photos these models taken are airbrushed and even Photoshopped. Now make-up is beyond a standard thing, I bet most boyfriends haven’t seen their girlfriends without make-up.
Many women feel crippled without their make-up, with so much pressure on themselves to try to look like a model they want to look flawless so they cake the make-up on everyday and every free chance. Now women look more like clowns than Victoria Secret models and it can’t be healthy for their skin.
With the pressure to look like a man’s ideal image of a woman it almost seems impossible to replace the impression that Victoria Secret models have already left on today society. Guess we just hope that things go back to natural, but who really wants that?
