One thing our good Miss Lizzo will do is fearlessly change the game. Whether it’s music, fashion, the TV show “Beware the Grrrls,” or battling the story of being an oversized woman in a world that tells us to hate our bodies. YITTY teamed up with Fabletics to create shapewear, not to alter our bodies but to embrace our shapes.
Lizzo posted on Instagram: “This is a dream in five years made…. Introduce YITTY: Shapewear you can wear Underwear, Underwear, everywhere. For every damn body. 6X to Xs. Are you ready for YITTY LIBERATION? Coming soon…“
No one understands how shapewear should fit better than a plus-size woman. Our bodies need more understanding as they struggle every day. We don’t want anything to roll down, feel uncomfortable or breathless.
Who better than Lizzo, who probably wears more shapewear than the average woman can imagine. I love that she sometimes adds high-waisted shaping panties, we don’t need the whole outfit. We need options, and we can never have too many.
Lizzo never shy away from praising her body and encouraging us to do the same. Having her own shapewear collection makes a lot of sense. We’ve said before that shapewear is meant to cover up our bumps, lumps and “imperfections”. Shapewear always seems to bring us back to hiding who we are, but Lizzo is changing that story.
I was tired of seeing this sad, restrictive shape that nobody really wanted to wear, I had an obvious like, ‘who can really do something about this? ?’ I decided to take on the challenge of allowing women to feel good about themselves again. “
The new shapewear collection will feature body contouring, panties, high-waisted panties and bras. Lizzo has stated that it is supposed to be like a second skin.
YITTY debuts on April 12.
Shapewear can certainly be worn to accentuate and hug our bodies, not hide them. So I’m really excited to support Lizzo and buy comfortable shapewear. I’m a figurehead, especially when it comes to fitted dresses.
Lets chat: Are you excited about YITTY? How do you feel about shapewear? Do you like it or hate it?
