Fans were really excited to check out the singer’s fashion line, but now they’re actually pretty angry at her! Dua Lipa received a lot of backlash on social media after it was announced that the upcoming clothing line is not going to include a big range of sizes, meaning it’s not catering to plus-sized women as well!
While the 22-year-old has announced that she is coming out with a line that is ‘accessible’ that only seems to be the case as far as prices are concerned because it’s not going to be accessible to a range of different body types.
Dua Lipa took to Twitter a couple of days ago to share with her many fans that she is collabing on a capsule collection with H&M-owned brand /Nyden but users are angry it’s not really as inclusive as she made it seem like.
‘I’m bringing four drops with the first one coming out this fall. I am so excited for you to see these.’
One follower was interested to know if the clothes are going to be unisex.
‘Yes what I’ve wanted to do with this collection is so that it’s universal and accessible for everyone,’ she replied.
In order to further reinforce the idea that it’s going to be accessible to everyone, Dua Lipa added that we’ll be able to shop for the clothing online so fans from overseas can still buy them.
But in a now-deleted tweet, she also mentions that the line goes ‘up to a size 16 UK,’ which translates to a US size 12.
That being said, her collection is only catering to the average size which is 16 in the UK and even less than average in the US, where the average woman is a 14 or 16.
Social media users had a lot to say about that!
‘You have fans bigger than a size 16, they should be catered for as well. I love you, but bigger people should not be penalized and they deserve their sizes to be included,’ one fan said.
‘Dua lipa says her clothing line is gonna be accessible for everyone but it’s only gonna go up to a size 16?? like?? sis what about your plus size fans,, bc 16 is not plus size,’ another pointed out.
