Savage X Fenty Embroiled In A Plus-sized Design Controversy

Savage X Fenty has always positioned itself as an all-inclusive brand, whether when it comes to race or body types. So you can only imagine the backlash they had when they released their Valentine’s Day collection and the pieces for smaller sizes and plus-sized ones are of different designs.

Twitter user Alysse Dalessandro wrote, “I understand construction cannot always be the same for plus size (especially in lingerie) but I know you can do strappy bralettes in plus so why do brands do this?”

The smaller sizes featured peek-a-boo strappy details for the bralette, while the larger sizes only featured a full-mesh bra.

And it seems it’s not the first time the brand has been called out for its sizing. In May 2018, another Twitter user, LaKeisha Shurn, called Fenty out for not being inclusive to all body shapes. She claimed that she ordered the biggest size available, but still could not fit into it. She also posted a photo, comparing the size 3 piece she ordered from Savage X Fenty, with a size 2 piece that she ordered from another online store, Torrid.

Some people came to Savage X Fenty’s defense, saying that they should be glad that there’s progress on the plus-sized clothing front.


While the brand hasn’t released a statement, Alysse tweeted that they had contacted her to thank her for her feedback.
