Billie Eilish Reveals Why She Wears Oversized Clothes

Billie Eilish Reveals Why She Wears Oversized Clothes

During a recent interview with Vogue Australia, 17 years-old indie pop singer Billie Eilish has revealed why she wears baggy clothes.

The ‘bad guy’ singer explained her outfits purposefully conceal her body so that the media can’t body shame her.

She said:

“What I like about just dressing like I’m 800 sizes bigger than I am is it kind of gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like. I don’t want to give anyone the excuse of judging, and not—and it’s not like everyone’s going to judge you, but they all do in their head, like even if they’re not trying to.”

Almost all female artists know what it is like to criticize their bodies in a negative way, from Cardi B and “swollen ankles” to Rihanna‘s weight gain. She continued:

“I want layers and layers and layers. And I want to be mysterious. You don’t know what’s underneath, and you don’t know what’s on top.

I remember seeing an acceptance speech Rihanna gave where she said fashion has always been her defense mechanism. And I felt like I never felt something as strongly hearing someone else say it than I did when I heard her say that because it’s always been that way for me. It’s always been my security blanket.”

Billie Eilish also added and mentioned her baggy clothes in a Calvin Klein ad. She said:

 “I never want the world to know everything about me. I mean, that’s why I wear big baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. Nobody can be like, ‘she’s slim-thick,’ ‘she’s not slim-thick,’ ‘she’s got a flat ass,’ ‘she’s got a fat ass.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”
