“I don’t know about y’all – but I’m sick of people telling me how I’m supposed to look and feel about my body. I’m tired of discomfort being synonymous with sexy,” she wrote. ” If it’s uncomfortable TAKE IT OFF. And if it makes you feel good PUT IT ON. @YITTY isn’t just shapewear, it’s your chance to reclaim your body and redefine your beauty standard.”

‘Yitty’ Founder Prefers The Term “Bodywear” Over “Shapewear”

Furthermore, Lizzo told The New York Times that she prefers the term “bodywear” over “shapewear”.  However, no one understood her preference. Also, she states that she wishes to help others “enjoy autonomy” with their bodies.

“I don’t want to be the only one who can enjoy autonomy with my body because I am now in a privileged position where people want to make me stuff and I can afford it,” she explained. “I want to help other people out in that way too.”

The “Juice” singer serves as the chairman and co-founder of Yitty and appears in many ads. Also, Yitty will be available on its own website, the Fabletics website, and in Fabletics retail stores.
