“The whole leggings, the crotchless ones,” she said about her underwear, blushing before continuing. “All the bras that make my breasts fit, because, you know, I’m 33 now, they’re not where they used to be. I’m eager to really see my pieces in talent, to see them in so many different body shapes and silhouettes, because that’s what brings the pieces to life ”.
In previous shows, Rihanna has taken the initiative to become a champion of inclusion with her fashion line. He wants to continue to highlight men of all shapes, colors and sizes in a way similar to how he encourages women with his line.
“Men, especially, there is always a certain figure that represents them in this space of lingerie and nightwear and boxers … We are going to have men of all sizes and different races. We are going to make men feel included too, because I think men have lagged behind on the inclusion curve ”.
