Victoria’s Secret promotes such an unrealistic body image for women that a group of regular sized people decided to strip down to just their underwear to protest the store and has their racy photo.

The women were in only their bras and underwear and are part of the About-Face organization that wanted to reveal their own average body sizes to contrast the super skinny models who wear the uber sexy lingerie.

“Not everybody needs to be like that in order to be attractive, in order to be awesome in general," the Executive Director Jennifer Berger said about their “Operations Real Bodies Real Love.”

One guy joined the group and was in his black underwear too.

In front of the San Francisco Union Square Victoria’s Secret store the group held up signs that said “I Pledge to Love My Body.”

The group says they “represent the public and fight for more accurate bodies in the media.”

Victoria’s Secret has come under fire for their model’s super skinny bodies, and Berger said not everyone has a size zero body.

"And we really wanted to speak out against that whole, that whole piece of it. You know, all the people here really like the way that they look."
