was always my dream.
German Supermodel – Heidi Klum
According to a press article at Yahoo Biz, “When Wexner bought the struggling Victoria’s Secret for $1 million in 1982, the company had just three stores and a catalog operation.
Before Victoria’s Secret, the average woman had five bras, noted Edward G. Razek, — three white, one beige, and one black. “All five panties were white,” he said.
Today, thanks to … Victoria’s Secret, lingerie drawers are full of underwear in a myriad of colors, fabrics, and styles. Panties have been replaced by boy shorts, thongs, v-strings, and hip huggers. “
Popular supermodel Heidi Klum who signed a $2.5 million contract with the company recently hosted the TV show “Project Runway”, as a judge on contestants hoping to become fashion designers.
The movie “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” was released in 2005 and has helped to boost sales of the brand.

Their advertising in the 50’s and 60’s ran:-
“I dreamed I was…[ doing some ordinary activity]… in my Maidenform bra.”
Maidenform today operates in both the US and the UK offering bras, pants, underwear and shapewear for the fuller figure as well as baby dolls for those special occasions.
