I love Victoria’s Secret merchandise; to date, I’ve returned only one item – a pair of bootcut leather pants that were bigger than the same-size skinny ones I kept. I am still salivating over their Rocker Jean In Metallic Foil Wash (hooray, it’s still orderable, at 25% discount, to boot!). VS catalogs arrive here in trucks, so the merchandise gets old before it’s purchased; that’s why I was immensely pleased to receive an email this morning, informing me that the new VS PINK NFL Collection is now available for orders.
If you don’t know already, the NFL pre-season kicked off yesterday. The Cowgirls beat the Bengals 16-7 and will face the Raiders on Thursday. So now’s the time to shop VS, girls – and boys! Unfortunately, as you will see from this link , the PINK NFL Collection is incomplete – not only does it omit certain teams, but the bras are missing as well.
Now, I understand fanhood-based marketing decisions (although I would have preferred the exclusion of those Donk… pardon me, the Broncos, as well as those wannabes from San Diego). But what is a VS collection without the bras?! What is happening to the VS legacy??
I already contacted VS about their NFL bra problem. An automated response informed me immediately that they “are always happy to hear from you and to assist you with any questions or concerns, and also that their “goal is to personally answer your e-mail within the next 24 hours.” Will keep you informed.
