I am sure most of you must of heard of Victoria's secret. It is a famous brand name of women lingerie. Was there a real Victoria on whom this brand is named? Or it was just because it sounds nice?

Thanks and with my reviews is that : The Victoria of Victoria's Secret likely refers to British queen. lpso facto , one can conclude the aforementioned " secret " is merely part of clever branding strategy , alluding to the titillating possibility that the prudish monarch ( Who at one point during her reign went into seclusion for 25 years ) liked to wear sexy lingerie like the stretch lace Miracle Bra . But despite what some would say was a cultivated aura of Anglicism , Victoria's Secret started in the early 70s as a small lingerie shop in San Francisco . The store was decorated , according to Les Wexner , CEO of Victoria's parent company , like a Victorian brothel , complete with red leather sofas .

I found the website strangecosmos.com It is a site that discusses the history of certain stores and restaurnants. According to that site, Victoria Secret was named for Queen Victoria!

This arises another question. "Is it really Queen Victoria's secret?". I am surely going to visit the site you mentioned. I am always curious of different brand names and their history. Thanks for pointing out the website.
