Beyoncé’s Ivy Park x Adidas Collab Slammed For Not Including Plus Size

Whenever Beyoncé teases something, whether it’s a new hit single or a brand collab, people usually fall head-over-heels for it (us included, certified Beyhive).

Unfortunately, this time ’round, fans were less than pleased with her latest collection for Ivy Park x Adidas.

Celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Hailey Bieber, and Janell Monae left us all heart eyes for the award-winning singer’s newest debut in solar orange and maroon athleisure. However, fans couldn’t help pointing out that something was missing.

PR Newswire indicated that Beyoncé’s Ivy Park x Adidas collection would be available from sizes XS to XL, with the largest size being size US 16. According to InStyle, her previous collab with Adidas in 2016 also came in these exclusive sizes.

This is a huge contrast to Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie collection, which is available up to size 4XL (US 20 – 22).

Adidas has included plus sizes in their range of clothing before, with one of their most notable partnerships being with Universal Standard, which accounted for sizes up to 4XL.

Despite this setback, Beyoncé mentioned that this collection of athleisure was for everyone. She told Elle:

“I focused on designing a unisex collection of footwear and apparel because I saw so many men in Ivy Park. The way they have embraced the brand is an unexpected gift. I appreciate the beauty of gender-neutral clothing and breaking the so-called fashion rules.”

Some fans have a different take on the lack of inclusive sizing for Ivy Park x Adidas.

Neither Adidas nor Beyoncé has commented on the matter at the moment.
