Victoria's Secret has finally made moves to capitalize on their, um, pictorial popularity and launched their branded Pinterest page. They've already amassed 8,723 followers—which is low compared to their 18.5 million "likes" on Facebook, but already higher than most retailers on Pinterest. Interestingly, the most followed board happens to be a swimwear-themed one with a total of zero models (and zero boobs) in it. Maybe its like the dudes who really do go to Hooters for the wings: Pinners go to the Victoria's Secret page for the bathing suits. Huh, who would have thought?
