Date Bra?! Date Panties?! Yeah, I have something to say about that…

This summer I was walking by Victoria’s Secret and saw this…and it’s been on my mind ever since.



My jaw immediately hit the floor.  Seriously?!  The DATE BRA Collection?!  And if that’s not enough, they also offer Date Panties.




Now let’s back this up a bit.  It’s their Pink line…umm, hello…geared at teens.  And yes, Victoria’s Secret just.went.there.

This just infuriates me.  Because I was once a teen…and I remember all the stress and nerves that went along with dating, and now Victoria’s Secret just validated this false expectation?!  It’s like they are screaming, “Hey girls, make sure you have your date bra and date panties on for when you get to that part of the date!”

And with that, I think I just threw up in my mouth

because I KNOW BETTER.


To all my teen girls out there reading this,

Know this: There are no “expectations” like this on a date. 

YOU are in control of your body and no one needs to GO THERE.  Your body is YOUR sacred temple.

I can also promise you this is not what dating is supposed to be about.  And if you feel it’s the “expectation” with the one you are dating, RUN.  Run far in the other direction because he obviously doesn’t value YOU.

If he cares enough about you and truly loves you, HE WILL WAIT.

Read that again and really take it in…if he really loves you, he will wait.  And if he doesn’t, let’s just call it what it is…he’s a punk-ass guy with one thing on his mind and your well-being isn’t it.  So guess what, he isn’t worth it.

So no girls, this is NOT what’s expected when you go out on a date.  Very disappointing, Victoria’s Secret…very disappointing.

I’ve Got Your Back,

Your Big Sister Michelle
