If you’re larger breasted, or even smaller breasted, and ever thought I can’t wear that, it needs smaller/bigger boobs, you’re not alone—Rihanna is in the same boat.
The mogul’s response to her recent weight gain has been an obvious departure from what we’ve come to expect from women in the spotlight. The past trajectory was a series of unflattering paparazzi photos that prompted a ‘rehab stint’ or removal from the spotlight, with the female celebrity in question reemerging a sample size butterfly from her chrysalis. Rihanna, however, went the opposite way, publicly expressing appreciation—even excitement—for her changing body, essentially stopping critics in their tracks.
Her latest venture, a luxury woman’s brand under the LMVH umbrella, features a range of larger sizes and mannequins that resemble the women we are and know. This is a response to the challenges the singer has had to overcome with adjusting to her new shape, namely, as she told E! at the latest capsule launch, what to do with her boobs.
“We have our fit models, which is the standard size from factories, you just get your samples made in one size,” she said. “But then, I want to see it on my body, I want to see it on a curvy girl with thighs and a little bit of booty and hips. And now I have boobs that I never had before…you know, I don’t even know how to sleep sometimes, it’s challenging, so imagine getting dressed. But it’s all of these things I take into consideration because I want women to feel confident in my stuff.”
