The Detroit native said she was focused on shifting the fashion focus from ‘sad, restrictive shapewear’ that has long been marketed, and launch a line that boosts values such as ‘self-love’ and ‘radical inner confidence.’

The Truth Hurts artist said: ‘Instead of thinking about size in this linear way, we’re thinking about it on a spectrum where everyone is included. Everyone’s size is just their size. It’s not high, it’s not low. It’s not big, it’s not small. It’s just your size.’

The recording artist, whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson, named the line after her nickname as a child.

Yitty, which will features sizes between 6X to XS, will begin with three different fashion lines: Nearly Naked, which will be seamless; Mesh Me, which will be mesh-based; and Major Label, which will include more traditional pieces.
