Sydney, Mar 1 (ANI): Victoria’s Secret, the brand famous for its lusty and sexy lingerie line is now considering an ultra feminine revamp.
The companys Chief Executive Sharen Turney said that their clothing has gone too sexy and needs to be brought back to its sophisticated heritage.

“We will reinvent the sleepwear business and focus on product quality,” Turney said.
“Our assortment will return to an ultra feminine lingerie brand to meet her needs and expectation, she added.
Victorias Secret was started in San Francisco in 1977 by Roy Raymond, who said he was embarrassed trying to buy lingerie for his wife and hoped to provide a comfortable place for men to shop. (ANI)
