Rebel Wilson has called out the clothing line’s lack of plus sizes

Some fans think Rebel Wilson’s new clothing line isn’t perfect.

The Aussie actress launched her new loungewear label, R&R Club, with partner Ramona Agruma earlier this month, but many on social media noticed that the brand’s styles – which include hoodies at $179 and sweatpants at $149 – only come in sizes XS to XL.

« Can we talk about the lack of size inclusivity in Rebel Wilson’s new brand??? wtf, » designer Destiny Ann asked her TikTok followers over the weekend.

« I don’t understand how someone who’s been plus size for the majority of their career and the majority of their life – someone who knows it’s hard to be fat, to buy clothes and to find it in her size – I don’t understand how someone with that background, that knowledge, can pull out a brand that only goes up to an XL,” Destiny Ann said in the review clip.

The TikToker, who describes himself as « UR FAT POSI BIG SIS » in his bio, noted that offering an inclusive size range is indeed more expensive for brands, but argued, « It’s Rebel Wilson, d Okay? She’s got money!

Highlighting « the irony of a rebel abandoning a clothing line that couldn’t even have been bought a few years ago » in her caption, Destiny Ann concluded her clip by calling the R&R Club’s limited size « so daunting » — and commentators agreed.

“She disassociates herself from the person she was,” one wrote. Another recalled: ‘She had a very successful plus size range BECAUSE she knew how hard it was’, calling the R&R Club size ‘EXTRA disappointing’.

Indeed, the 42-year-old « Senior Year » star has previously collaborated with popular plus-size retailer Torrid, and even launched her own line offering plus-sizes in 2017 called Rebel Wilson x Angels.

TikTok creator Lacey-Jade Christie meanwhile made a video asking, “Rebel! why did you forget about us?!” and said she was « devastated and flabbergasted » by the R&R Club’s size range.

« I know she’s not fat anymore, but the fat community has supported Rebel Wilson her entire career. She’s enjoyed being a big person, a big character, » Christie added.

After embarking on a “healthy year” at the start of 2020, Wilson has lost around 80 pounds.

On Twitter, the response to the R&R Club’s limited sizing was largely the same, with user Stephanie Yeboah Tweeter that « former fat people can sometimes end up being the worst when it comes to fatphobia and/or exclusion ».

The name of the R&R Club is a nod to the first initials of Wilson and Agruma, as well as to the concept of rest and relaxation.

The ‘How to Be Single’ actress came out as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community in June, writing on Instagram at the time, « I thought I was looking for a Disney Prince… but maybe what I’m really needed all this time was a Disney Princess 💗🌈💗#loveislove.”

The designer couple welcomed a daughter, Royce Lillian, via surrogate in November after seven months of dating.
