Where did the name Victoria's Secret come from?

The origin of a company name is often a mystery. What we discovered, is that there is no one "secret."

The Victoria of Victoria's Secret likely refers to the British queen. Ipso facto, one can conclude the aforementioned "secret" is merely part of a clever branding strategy, alluding to the titillating possibility that the prudish monarch (who at one point during her reign went into seclusion for 25 years) liked to wear sexy lingerie like the stretch lace Miracle Bra. Lucky Prince Albert.

But despite what some would say was a cultivated aura of Anglicism, Victoria's Secret started in the early 70s as a small lingerie shop in San Francisco. The store was decorated, according to Les Wexner, CEO of Victoria's parent company, like a Victorian brothel, complete with red leather sofas.

Not so secret, perhaps, is that over the years, the company has been the subject of various protests and accusations. Some claim it promotes hyper-sexualized images of women. And in 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that a small Kentucky sex shop called "Victor's Little Secret" did not infringe on the company's trademark.

Details aside, the background story is that the company was started by a man who was trying to buy lingerie for his wife. It was difficult for men to simply walk into lingerie stores and buy lingerie for their wives.

In any case, that man's name was Victor. Victor dressed as a women to enter the store and disguised himself as Victoria.

Hence, Victoria's Secret.

Victoria is Victor, who is man, trying to buy lingerie for his wife.

Victoria's Secret has strict criteria for its models, including being between 5'8"-6'0" in height. This criteria and other factors has produced successful results and profits for VS over the years so it is not likely that they will take a risk by changing anything. They need their models to be tall because it helps to sell the lingerie and clothing better. A model with longer legs, torso and arms photographs much better. The same rules apply for why companies like VS use tall models as for high fashion designers using tall models on their runways.

It takes alot of work to get a victorias secret body, but it is possible. Try to figure out an exercise routine including situps, and jogging or powerwalking. Keep this up and stick to a diet including lots of veggies and healthy foods, and your well on you way. That is an excellent response:). I have an excercise routine to follow: First-25 times(love Handles). Position your self as if yew were about to do a sit up, but instead you will place your legs where your nees are facing to your right, lay on to your side, but keep hands behind head and face facing to the cieling.(so when ye lift up you see your side)lift fast, come down slow, DO NOT touch the floor. Second-25 times repeat on the opposite side. Third-50(Abs) your doing a sit up. but you lift slow and come down slow, DO NOT touch the ground . Repeat this two times or more. another abb workout would be laying straight on the floor lift legs up about three inches, while lifting your chest up and hiting your lower stomach with your bald up fist:) they do that in football to help lose weight
