Beyoncé's clothing line has been criticised for not carrying bigger sizes

For shame, Bey.

YESTERDAY, BEYONCÉ’S ATHLEISURE line Ivy Park made its debut online.

Consisting of sweatshirts, leggings and, yes, a skort, the line caused a bit of a fuss on social media yesterday.

But not everyone is enamoured with it.

Many have criticised Ivy Park for not featuring more plus sizes. According to Topshop’s website, the range only goes up as far as XL, which is the equivalent of size 16-18.

This is on the lower end of the ‘plus size’ scale — Simply Be, one of the leading plus size retailers in the UK & Ireland, goes up as far as size 32.

Given that Beyoncé has traditionally promoted inclusiveness and body positivity, many fans were disappointed to see that her line didn’t deviate from high street norms.

While some people poked fun at it…

The general consensus was that it was a shame, if unsurprising, that Ivy Park would choose to ignore plus-size customers.

Sort it out, Bey.
