Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty line, launching in May, seems as though it will include bras with cup sizes up to DDD and band sizes up to 44.


For comparison, Victoria’s Secret cup sizes also go up to DDD, but its band sizes only go up to 40.

On social media, the Savage x Fenty line has featured plus-size and curve models starring in a campaign for the new line.


In an instagram caption, Rihanna wrote, “Savages come in all shapes and sizes!! Ya ready?”

But while Savage x Fenty may be size-inclusive compared to Victoria’s Secret, plus-size lingerie actually serves a much wider range of bodies.

Inclusive lingerie brand Playful Promises, for example, includes cup sizes up to 44I.

In 2017, plus size blogger Gabi Gregg spoke to Mic about her collaboration with Playful Promises.

My biggest problem, as a HH cup, when I go into a plus-size store, they might have really cute and cool things up to a DDD.

To really live up to its commitment to inclusivity, maybe Rihanna’s lingerie line will eventually consider expanding its size range.
