Lizzo has just announced that she will be launching her first line of binder tops and tucking thongs for trans Yitty customers.
In 2022, Lizzo set up her first ever shapewear brand in collaboration with Fabletics. Made in sizes that range from 6X to XS, Yitty is a body-positive company that prioritises comfort. In a statement announcing Yitty, Lizzo wrote: "This is a love letter to my big grrrls, and a welcome letter to Every Body." She added: I’m tired of discomfort being synonymous with sexy."
Now, Lizzo is making Yitty even more inclusive by releasing gender-affirming shapewear for trans and non-binary people.
