Someone Notices Rihanna’s New Lingerie Is Different For Thin And Plus-Size Women, Posts Side-By Side Comparison

Rihanna took the cosmetic world by storm when she gave women of all shades what they had asked for for so many years – the correct shade – so when she released ads for her new body inclusive Savage X Fenty lingerie line we knew once again that Rhi Rhi would bless us – for some though the praise was premature.

On Wednesday the singer turned style mogul released her Savage X Fenty’s Valentine’s Day Decadence collection with bra sizes in 32A to 42DD for bras and XS to 3X for panties and bralettes, and while the sizes ranged – so did the designs. Teen Vogue Fashion blogger Alysse Dalessandro took to Twitter upon the design release to question why the design differences between the smaller and larger sizes were so drastic, using the “Hearts Unlined Bra” and “Hearts Half Cup Bralette” designs as an example.

As some pointed out while structural differences are sometimes required to give plus sized women more support, that doesn’t have to come at the cost of sexiness. To further prove this point Instagram user Ashleigh Tribble, who has called out Savage X Fenty before, told Teen Vogue ” other brands that cater to plus-sizes have no problem creating the same, or even sexier, lingerie.”

Scroll down to read Dalessandro’s full thoughts and how other’s reacted.

Rihanna released her Savage X Fenty Valentine’s Day Decadence collection on Wednesday, with a campaign focused on championing women of all shapes and sizes

But one fashion blogger quickly noticed some pretty obvious design differences between the small and plus sizes

Other people found additional flaws when comparing the two looks

However, not everyone saw the issue and stood up for Rhianna

The post author took time to explain her opinion in more detail

She also said that “A lot of people have pointed out they think that the straight size bra would not work for plus-size women. I think that’s not recognizing all of the ways that personal style and body type vary by person. Not everyone cares about support. That’s a personal choice.”

Oh, the uproar! Finally, we have something to be offended by, again. Brexit chaos in Europe? War in Syria? Shutdown in the US? Hell, who cares, we can be offended by the fact that apparel with fine details does not scale from XS to XXXL. (I truly hope this post does not offend anyone, but I am rather sure it will.)

I agree with Meowton, but really, the importance of female clothing issues is often underestimated. I understand ending a war is more important (I was literally born into one), and I understand very poor women cannot even afford to buy and wear ANY bra. But does that mean that I have to live a miserable life because there's no support and no clothes that would emphasize my otherwise beautiful body? Life is not eternal and youth is short. You have to enjoy it while you can, but without proper clothes, there's something that's missing. It's about self-expression we're talking about, not about some self-entitlement and exaggerated demands.

I'm a big girl, with big boobs. I would rather wear the full cup over the half any day. Sexy is not in the clothes, it's how you wear them.

Agreed! I've owned a similar bra that I ended up giving away... There are no words for the horror the straps created, both visually and comfort-wise.

I think both bra's look quite nice actually. And wow, very sexy underpants, for both the regular size as the plus size. Too bad Im more of a comfort type of girl ;)

Those bottoms look pretty comfortable. Depends on what they are made out of though.
