Intimatewear and beauty retailer Victoria’s Secret (NYSE:VSCO) will be announcing earnings results tomorrow after market hours. Here's what to expect.

Victoria's Secret met analysts' revenue expectations last quarter, reporting revenues of $2.08 billion, up 3% year on year. It was a mixed quarter for the company. While same store sales missed, gross margin outperformed and led to a narrow EPS beat vs Wall Street's estimates. On the other hand, its full-year revenue and operating income guidance missed analysts' expectations, with the latter quite a large amount below expectations.
