Thin, curvy, thick, athletic, plus size or pregnant, Rihanna wants you to feel sexy and own it.
Rihanna launched her lingerie collection, Savage X Fenty, in May and celebrated the 2018 line this week at New York Fashion Week. Models such as Slick Woods and Bella and Gigi Hadid strutted their stuff in a colorful array of pieces which oozed womanhood and sex positivity.
The top models were accompanied by other beauties who ranged in all sizes, which successfully illuminated the range in the Bajan mogul's line. According to the Savage X Fenty site, Rihanna’s line caters to sizes ranging from XS to 3XL and bra sizes from 32A to 44DD.

“Women are running the world right now, and it’s too bad for men,” Rihanna told Elle Magazine after the New York Fashion Week show.
Not only were Rihanna’s models of every size, the strutters also represented different races and stages of life. A few models were even pregnant, a rare site for New York Fashion Week and lingerie promotions combined.

“I have a lot of respect for those women and those who choose to continue to work and get it done while being pregnant,” Rihanna said. “I have a lot of respect for Slick and every other pregnant woman working until their due date. I’ll never tell her she can’t do a show unless she tells me, ‘I can’t because I’m about to drop in a second.’”

Efforts for inclusivity are not new for the songstress. Rihanna has always sought to help women reach a new level of confidence through fashion.
“Women should be wearing lingerie for their damn selves,” Rihanna told Vogue in May before the launch of her line. “I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light. Yo don’t have to stick to one personality with lingerie; it’s fun to play around. You can be cute and playful one week and a black widow next week. You can take risks with lingerie. I want people to wear Savage X Fenty and think I’m a bad b***h. I want women to own their beauty.”
