Spring signifies so many things, like better weather (hopefully), brighter colors, and longer days. It also means the start of wedding season and if, like me, you're nervous about making sure you nail your wedding guest look this year, you may be looking into one of the most controversial and anxiety-inducing corners of fashion: the world of shapewear. Too often, shapewear companies market from a place of shaming, encouraging women to romanticize the slim figure, but now, there's a new player in the shapewear game that's looking to change that: The inimitable, multi-talented Lizzo. 

With her new shapewear brand, Yitty, Lizzo says that she wants to make women feel "unapologetically good" by ditching the notion that shapewear needs to feel uncomfortable or difficult to put on. Yitty, named after Lizzo's childhood nickname, bucks against the notion that "beauty is pain" as well as the idea that shapewear is supposed to change a woman's natural body shape. The line also covers a wide range of sizes, and flips the script on the antiquated favoritism showed toward slimness by listing all sizes on the site starting at 6X and ending at XS—a small but tremendously impactful change that centers curvy women instead of relegating them to the margins.

Yitty is in partnership with Fabletics, and its designs range from undergarments to outerwear and everything in between. Join us in taking a look through this fun, functional collection. Below, some of the essentials I'm stocking up on for both wedding season and hot girl summer.
