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 criticized 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.
