I love VS. Their panties are high-quality, sure they cost more, but they last longer & are just prettier!
Also, VS caters to small chics like me. I have a hard time finding sizes because I am little. I know VS seems to be all about breasts & flaunting your bod; fine, but they also have small sizes for small breasts too, and the bras are high quality...
Now, when it comes to the sleaze factor; I have to agree on some of the stuff. But that stuff is FUN to buy. If you've got a fun, hot relationship in your life, and you want to add a little spice? Or for the married folk who need to add a little spice? That's what the "barely there" stuff is for. Just for fun, for women who want to show off their bods to their boyfriends or hubbies.
VS has really nice flannel jammies. Flannel, covers-everything, buttons up to there and nice to lounge in. I only wear VS jammies!
And their clothing line in the magazine is just amazing. Once again they have smaller sizes for chics like me who quit growing at the age of 13.
I agree, sex sells, and as long as people buy the racy stuff, they will keep selling it. But they also sell the nice stuff, like lacy pantyhose, comfy bras, flannel jammies and panties that fit nice.
