Rebel Wilson has responded to criticism that her new fashion company R&R Club falls short when it comes to offering inclusive sizes.
The Aussie actress was slammed after it was revealed that the first capsule collection – consisting of a white hoodie and matching sweatpants – only went up to size L/XL.

This left many of Wilson’s larger fans incensed, accusing the actress of “lost touch” with some of her fan base.
TikTok user Destiny Ann was among those who called the actress, who collaborated on the designs with partner Ramona Agruma.
“Can we talk about the lack of size inclusivity in Rebel Wilson’s new brand??? WTF,” she wrote in a now-viral video.
“I don’t understand how someone who has worn plus size for most of their career, most of their life – someone who knows how hard it is to be fat, to buy clothes and actually find them in your size – me I don’t understand how someone with this background and knowledge can launch a brand that only goes up to XL.”
Others seemed to have an issue with it, too, and flocked to the comments section — and Wilson’s own Instagram page — to express their disappointment.
“Wow. I’m disappointed in her. She knew how that felt,” one person wrote on Tiktok.
“Of all people I thought she would go up in size since she was bigger than XL at the time so disappointed in her,” said another.
One fan wrote on Wilson’s own Instagram page: “Imagine you’re a plus-size girl – and then launch a clothing line that doesn’t include size information.”
“Expensive and not including size. An easy pass, thanks,” wrote another.
Wilson has since taken to Instagram to issue a statement.
“We are experimenting with this limited edition capsule collection of just two pieces in limited sizes,” she wrote.
In subsequent posts, she asked her fans what colors and sizes they wanted to see in the next design round.
Still, there were some fans who seemed unfazed by the fact that R&R Club didn’t yet offer clothing in larger sizes.
When Wilson posted a glamorous picture of himself wearing the two-piece set, which retails for around A$500, many got ready to hit the buy now button.
“I WILL,” gushed one fan, while another wrote, “Stunning.”
“I’ve always loved you and your work but you seem to have really come into your own lately and seem so happy,” wrote another fan.
