Featuring several different shades and styles, Rihanna has been keen to promote her new Savage x Fenty lingerie line as inclusive and representative of a diverse range of body types. 

However, as the bras only go up to a DD cup size, fuller busted fans have taken to Twitter to vent their disappointment and ask the singer why the sizing is so limited. 

The 90s-style collection which launched May 11 includes items in 36 different sizes ranging from 32A-44DD in cup sizes and XS-3X in underwear.

Over the past month, the 30-year-old singer has been releasing tease after tease of her inclusive line and the publicity paid off as fans flooded to the site early in the morning only to have to wait to see any clothing items.

However, several women are now coming forward to dispute her earlier claims that she created the line for every kind of body. 

Twitter user @FranchescaJane wrote: 'BRA SIZES GO PAST DD GODDAMNIT BE MORE INCLUSIVE IN YOUR SIZES'.

While @AURORA_LAWSON typed: 'I am disappointed, it says to have all sizes but impossible to find mine ...'

A sentiment shared by @ktbird7 who shared: 'when I signed up for your website, I was given 32DDD as an option, but now I see you don't carry my size. Really disappointed! My size is not THAT unusual.'

And @Ashley_xo31 added: '#SavageXFenty fans.. y'all do know that @VictoriasSecret carries 32AA-40DDD... that's a larger size range. Savage might have the nude selection, but that's it.' 

Many fans expressed their disappointment in the face of Rihanna's claims that the line was going to be all inclusive, and offer a range of shapes, sizes, and designs to fit women of many different body types. 

The announcement was made on Instagram with a set of stunning posts, including two plus-size models sporting items from the new collection.

Plus model, Audrey Ritchie, features in one of the posts looking the epitome of glamour as she lounges on a couch in a video also featuring her own voiceover.

Each clip of her speaking is punctuated with the noise of a tape rewinding or fast-forwarding, jumping from topic to topic.

'I have really giant boobs. They were double-ds by the time I was in the eighth grade,' she says, before the tape zips to another comment.

She discusses rolls and cellulite as well as sexuality as the clip zooms in on her, ending with a giggle and a display of the line's logo. The caption reads: 'X stands for ALL.'

But while the lack of range in terms of the sizes had some people fuming, other fans also expressed their irritation on Twitter when they had to wait to get on the site to first see if any items were worth purchasing on launch day. 

One frustrated person wrote: 'When you about to checkout with a cart full of (Savage X Fenty) but the website kicks you out.'

The popularity of the launch forced the website to create a waitlist in an attempt to prevent crashes. 

But this waitlist caused some to stay open on the page for more than an hour before they could shop.

'If y'all ain't buying nothing and just looking, get outta the line before the s**t I want be sold out,' one customer implored people on Twitter while she waited in line. 

After a few crashes and long wait times, exhausted fans were finally able to make their lingerie purchases.

Notably missing from the launch was handcuffs, which were rumored to be apart of the launch. 

In a tweet shared on an account called Fenty Stats Wednesday, the line was given a range of prices for each item - including a set of handcuffs.

The tweet listed the handcuffs as being sold for $18-$29, with other items including corsets, rompers, jumpsuits, robes listed at $69-$99. 

It is unclear if the Fenty site is waiting to release the handcuffs at a later date, or if there is even a pair planned for the line.

But if Rihanna is considering moving into the sex-toy industry, her fans are here for it.  The rumored addition quickly caused a stir among the singer's fans on Twitter Wednesday, with many quoting lines from her hit S&M.

The song includes lyrics such as, 'Cause I may be bad but I'm perfectly good at it' and, 'Sticks and stones may break my bones But chains and whips excite me.' 

'I'm not surprised about the handcuffs tbh bc we been knew Rihanna was bout that S&M life,' wrote one user, sharing a gif from the song's music video. 

Another wrote: 'Wow you really think I'm gonna buy Fenty handcuffs? You got me f***ed up because I absolutely am.'
