People Criticize Rihanna for Exposing Her Baby Bump Too Often and Tell Her to “Cover Up”

9 months ago

Rihanna refuses to wear special maternity clothes because dressing up is “too much fun”. The star rocks stylish cropped tops and bras and confidently shows off her baby bump. Most fans love her maternity style, however, some disapprove of her outfit choices, calling them too “revealing” and “inappropriate”.

Rihanna is pregnant with her second child.

The star welcomed her first child with A$AP Rocky in May 2022. Later Rihanna announced her second pregnancy during her 2023 Super Bowl Halftime Show. So far, the due date has been kept in secret. However, it’s rumored that the baby will be born in 2023.

She often shows off her bold maternity looks.

Before the announcement, the singer used to wear thick coats and hide her pregnancy with distracting colors. Now the star embraces her baby bump and exposes it whenever possible. Comfy sports bras, cropped tops, and even unbuttoned jeans — Rihanna has her own cool maternity style.

The singer was criticized for her style.

In January, the couple did a pregnancy photoshoot where Rihanna bared her stomach. Someone wrote, “I’m getting old because I saw those Rihanna pics and was thinking: It’s too cold for her to be bearing that bump like that, baby’s probably freezing.” “Congrats to Rihanna and Rocky, but please cover up, it’s cold.” Some people also believe Rihanna’s style is too revealing and inappropriate.

The celebrity mom is aware of the criticism regarding her style. She explains her outfit choices, “When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, there’s no way I’m going to go shopping in a maternity aisle.”

She adds, “My body’s doing incredible things right now, and I’m not going to be ashamed of that. Why should you be hiding your pregnancy?” She finished off with a bold statement, “I’m sorry, it’s too much fun to get dressed up, and I’m not going to let that part disappear because my body is changing.”

It’s not the first time Rihanna has been criticized by her fans. Once she was frowned upon for calling her son “fine”. The star responded like the queen she is.

I say leave her alone. She looks very happy and enjoys having her bump front and center. I've loved several of her pregnancy looks, but overall she's just dressing to suit herself and her style. Rhi Rhi has always been a bohemian fashionista and her style is always notable. I probably would've freed the bump when I was pregnant if I hadn't had so many horrible bright red stretch marks on a blinding white canvas, lol, I know nobody wants to see that, including me. I love Rhianna's boho chic looks and attitude. Ffs, she lives on a tropical island and it's hot as blazes, let her do what she wants to be comfortable. Not to mention that she's stunning and can pull off anything she chooses to wear, or not.
