5 Women Break New Ground in Fashion and Beauty
5Lizzo — Shapewear Shapeshift
"I was tired of seeing this sad, restrictive shapewear that literally no one wanted to wear," says Grammy Award-winning singer Lizzo of her newly launched plus-size shapewear with Fabletics, an athletic apparel company. Called Yitty, Lizzo’s nickname, the Truth Hurts singer is offering a body-positive line of colorful, fun, and comfortable undergarments in a range of sizes. The revolutionary shapewear is also eco-friendly, made of recycled fibers.
Success quote: “I feel like I’ve started to create my own culture of being a voice for something, and that’s what people want to know about. I love that because I am a woman and because I rap and I look the way I look, I can connect with the demographic of people who feel like they have a voice in me.”
