People Shocked by Savage x Fenty's Butt-Baring Leggings Evidently Not Familiar With Rihanna
Rihanna is the ultimate educator. She's taught listeners about love, heartbreak, and self-reliance over the span of eight albums. She showed the fashion industry what real representation looks like on the runway. She set the standard for inclusive foundation shade ranges. And now, she's quietly nudging shoppers toward butt cleavage.
The entrepreneurial singer's Savage x Fenty lingerie brand has been selling a certain pair of mesh, butt-baring, crotchless leggings for quite some time, but one recent TikTok drew attention to the daring intimate item that boasts a "playful surprise." Though the original video, which misidentified the leggings as being Fabletics, has since been deleted, a conversation about butt cleavage was sparked on the app nonetheless, with some scandalized and others tantalized.
Now, a few things are worth mentioning: Savage x Fenty is not an activewear brand. (Yet.) These aren't workout leggings. As the description states, these are meant for a "cozy night in." Rihanna isn't suggesting you wear these to your local aquatic trampoline dance-cardio class. (Yet?) And also, be advised that Savage x Fenty sells several open-back leggings. Know that. Embrace that. Shop ahead.
