Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty has released its first men’s underwear line, and it has got everyone talking.
The collection was sold out within a few hours it was launched. However, internet users were more impressed with the campaign as it featured plus-size men modeling the garments.
Internet users flooded Twitter to express delight at images of the plus-size men that were featured on the brand’s website, writing how “all men deserve to be represented, as no type of beauty is more significant than another.”
Many social media users wrote that representation has helped them fight unrealistic expectations of industry standards and boost their self-confidence. What is seen in the media can shape what society deems as acceptable or beautiful.
“Huge win for big men today! Thank you Rihanna you hold a special place in my heart,” an elated user tweeted. “Big men, just like women, are hardly ever represented in advertising but as Rihanna has proven here, the industry may want to rethink this,” another user said.

NGL. I needed this. It’s a major confidence boost. I basically look like this now and I was feeling so unattractive and bad about myself.— J (@jp_11_20_10) October 2, 2020
Man you deserve to feel this way. Brands never include people like us and when they do they do it for clout. Miss Riri is the first person to give a genuine shit about normal people with different body types.— mistake maker (@gabbyflores15) October 2, 2020
She just proves that these other brands are pretentious and discriminatory for NO REASON— Mama Bear✨ (@chidi_x6x) October 2, 2020
Other companies take note this could have been done decades ago and you would make more of that money that you care about. She just locked down the game by making everyone feel like they matter. Funny @HamiltonMusical took over Broadway in the same manner. I love this so much! https://t.co/JPP26tZoJx— Preston Wilson (@PrestonWilson44) October 2, 2020
