Robyn Lawley has called for a Victoria’s Secret boycott until the lingerie giant becomes more size inclusive.
The Australian model, who stands at 6′ 2″ and wears a U.S. size 12, has made no secret about her disdain for the American company, which is gearing up for its annual Fashion Show later this year.
But she’s now taken her anger over the lack of size diversity to the next level by starting an online petition calling for Victoria’s Secret to add bigger models to its catwalk line-up.
“I have started an online petition -link in bio,” Robyn wrote on Instagram next to a photo of her and her three-year-old daughter Ripley. “JOIN ME and lets help change the minds of Victoria’s Secret to be more diverse and inclusive of body shapes and sizes on their runways! Victoria Secret have dominated the space for almost 30 years by telling women there is only one kind of body beautiful.
“Until Victoria’s Secret commits to representing ALL women on stage, I am calling for a complete boycott of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.”
Robyn further explains her reasons on the Change.org petition, explaining that having Ripley has spurred on her desire to change the way women’s bodies are viewed.
Calling on women to get behind the idea, she asks them to first sign her petition and then spread the word by telling friends and family and posting online.
“Share a photo of yourself on Instagram, as you are (not airbrushed and beautiful), use the hashtag #weareallangels to share what makes you uniquely beautiful, please tag me so I can see (@robynlawley) and @ThirdLove,” she said.
“For every person who shares a post with the #weareallangels hashtag, ThirdLove will donate one bra to I Support the Girls, a national non-profit that collects and distributes bras to homeless women and girls around the country!!!”
