A new study has shown that models at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show became skinnier since its launch in 1995.

The average waist size for models working with the brand reduced an inch on average from 24.7 in 1995 to 23.6 in 2018, according to a report at the Boston University School of Medicine entitled Unattainable Standards of Beauty, which was published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journali.
