Former Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm has detailed the healthy change in her body since she starred on the lingerie brand’s iconic show in 2016. 

Taking to TikTok, the model, 29, showed fans a 30A cup bra she had worn on the show and tried on the garment before revealing she is now a ‘healthy’ 34B.  

Elsewhere in the video, she lashed out at the company for its ‘performative allyship’ amid long-standing criticism of the lack of inclusivity on the show, which has had a rebrand and will feature a variety of shapes and sizes.  

She also claimed she was turned away for the show the following year by Edward Razek, the former Chief Marketing Officer for L Brands where he developed the Victoria’s Secret Angels and the company’s annual fashion show.

Bridget, who has often claimed she felt pressure to maintain an unhealthy weight during her days as a model, shared details of her shape.

In the video, she revealed this week she no longer fits the bra she wore at the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show because she was so underweight at the time.

She then claimed she was rejected from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2017 after gaining weight and going up a cup size.

She was allegedly told by someone at the company that her ‘body did not look good enough’. 

Bridget also shared pictures of herself walking the runway in 2016 and said she could see the ‘sadness behind her eyes’. 

She then accused Victoria’s Secret of ‘performative allyship’, after the brand recently adopted a more ‘woke’ public image.

Victoria’s Secret last week unveiled plans for a major re-brand, including a line-up of ‘diverse spokeswomen’ instead of scantily clad models.

The ‘Angels’ have been axed and replaced by a ‘culturally relevant’ group of seven women who will form the ‘VS Collective’.

Victoria’s Secret’s new spokeswomen include the likes of actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, 38, and soccer player Megan Rapinoe, 35.

The new generation of ambassadors will not pose in lingerie, but will ‘instead appear on a podcast’ to discuss their stories.

The revamp has been described as ’cause-driven’ with a focus on ‘inclusivity’.
