For a lot of people, shapewear is a downright painful experience. It’s hard to put on. It pinches, rolls and chafes. It’s only offered in limited sizes and skin tones, and it comes with shameful, unspoken and untrue messaging: “Your body isn’t good enough the way it is.”
After years of experiencing these pains for herself, three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Lizzo decided to do something about it. “I was tired of seeing this sad, restrictive shapewear that literally no one wanted to wear,” Lizzo said. “I had an epiphany like, ‘Who can actually do something about this?’ I decided to take on the challenge of breaking norms and allowing women to feel unapologetically good about themselves again.” That’s when YITTY — shapewear reinvented — was born.
Available on YITTY.com, Lizzo’s YITTY is a brand that’s revolutionizing the shapewear industry. Instead of shame at its core, you’ll find principles of self-love, radical inner confidence, inclusivity and versatility. For one, YITTY uses super-soft, predominantly recycled fabrics that hug your curves rather than restricting them, and the reinvented sizing is designed to universally fit all shapes and bodies from 6X to XS. Yes, all collections will truly fit every body type. Thanks to its bold prints and sexy, stylish silhouettes, this shapewear also blurs the lines between innerwear and outerwear, since you’ll actually want to show it off on a daily basis. Finally, it’s well-made and offers exceptional quality, especially for the affordable price tags.
So far, the reaction on social media and the fashion industry have been passionate and emotional: “Thanks, it’s the first time I see myself represented like this” one follower said. Another wrote, “Lizzo’s new shapewear brand will change the industry forever.” Follow the brand’s Instagram (@YITTY) to get the latest tea and exclusives, and check out a few examples of essential shapewear reinvented below.

It offers just enough lift to keep you feeling supported, but the compression is low-level enough that reviewers have called it “very comfortable.”
Finally, the no-roll waistband stays put and the no-show seams make it invisible under clothing — but the fabrics are so stylish, you’ll probably want to wear them alone.
The perfect fitting silhouette, combined with the luxe, high-shine fabric, makes it so sexy and stylish that it can be worn underneath clothing or instead of it. Style it with the Open-Bust Thong Bodysuit to make a sexy statement.
