Beyoncé's much-anticipated Ivy Park x Adidas streetwear collection launched to a fanfare online over the weekend. 

While many customers quickly snapped up the new collection, others took to social media to vent their frustration about the lack of plus sizes available.   Advertisement

The items on offer come in sizes XS to XL, which translates as a US dress size of 0 to 2 up to 16 to 18, according to Adidas' site

Since the new items hit Adidas' site, Twitter has been lit up with commentary around the limited size range:


Beyoncé clearly wants this to be seen as an inclusive brand, however. Over the weekend, plus-size model Ashley Graham shared a video of herself trying on the new collection on social media. 

"It's here!!!! And I'm not talking about baby boy," Graham, who is currently pregnant, wrote on Twitter and Instagram. "Congratulations @beyonce this #ivyparkxadidas collection is EVERYTHINGGGG I'm gonna live in this collection once I can!"But some fans weren't impressed and pointed out that Graham is a US 16 dress size and that a large portion of shoppers are still underrepresented:Advertisement

The response to Beyoncé's new collection stands in stark contrast to Rihanna and her Savage x Fenty lingerie collection, which is available in US sizes 20-22. Fans wasted no time in calling Beyoncé out on this:


A spokesperson for Adidas did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment to confirm whether new sizes would be added at a later date. Advertisement
