opened up about dealing with a deluge of comments on her looks as an underage teenager.

She says:
“It made me really offended when people were like, ‘Good for her for feeling comfortable in her bigger skin,’ Eilish said. “Good for me? … The more the internet and the world care about somebody that’s doing something they’re not used to, they put it on such a high pedestal that then it’s even worse.”

Her signature style was driven by a desire to avoid comments on her body type.

“I mean, that’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know? Nobody can be like, ‘Oh, she’s slim-thick, she’s not slim-thick. No one can say any of that, because they don’t know.”

..in a long Instagram post, also detailed the process of having Eilish for the June cover, writing how she wanted “nothing short of a transformation and how she came to Vogue with an idea. She wanted to show more of her body for the first time in a fashion story. She wanted to play with corsetry and revel in the aesthetic of the mid-20th century pin-ups she’s always loved.
She also told Vogue she chose to wear a corset because she's insecure about her stomach.
The singer also took to her Instagram to share the cover image where she is seen dressed in vintage-inspired lingerie, thanking the outlet for respecting her 'vision'.

“Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you,”

noted the singer

Her new look coincides with a comeback single titled 'Your Power', which confronts abusers who exploit and manipulate underage girls. “It also puts the responsibility on the viewer to consider their baggage,” reads the piece.
“Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you,” noted the singer.
Eilish also highlighted how her choice to dress modestly, was not a stand against other female pop stars who prefer to dress in more scanty apparel.
Let's turn it around and be empowered in that. Showing your body and showing your skin – or not – should not take any respect away from you," she said in the interview.

What's Eilish's goal? “I would like people to listen to me. And not just try to figure out who I’m talking about, because it’s not about that. It’s really not at all about one person," the singer says. "You might think, ‘It’s because she’s in the music industry’—no, dude. It’s everywhere. I don’t know one girl or woman who hasn’t had a weird experience, or a really bad experience. And men, too—young boys are taken advantage of constantly.”
