Eilish, who wore baggy clothes as a teenager and during her early career to avoid being sexualized, told Elle that she felt she had to “wear a big shirt” so as not to make others “feel uncomfortable about” her “big breasts” .
“That’s why I wear big, baggy clothes,” Billie explained at the time. ‘Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath. No one can say, ‘She’s slim-fat’, ‘She’s not slim-fat’, ‘She has a flat ass’, ‘She has a fat ass.’ No one can say that because they don’t know.’
‘I’m becoming a woman. I want to show my body. What if I want to make a video where I want to look attractive?’ she asked before her 18th birthday.
Since 2021, Eilish, who turns 22 in December, has become increasingly comfortable embracing “feminine” and form-fitting clothing.
Still, the Grammy winner admitted in June that she was still having a “hard time” dealing with hurtful comments about her body.
“Dude, I don’t even know. It’s hard, man,” she told British Vogue. “Honestly, no one can say anything about my body that I don’t have a stronger opinion about.”
She added: “I also think that if I was younger, like if the internet talked about me like they do now when I was 11, I wouldn’t be able to exist, to be honest.”
The hitmaker further admitted, “I love myself more than I used to, and I’m more interested in how I feel than how they feel. But that could also be a bunch of bullshit because it still hurts my feelings as a son of ab***h.”

Eilish, who wore baggy clothes as a teenager and during her early career to avoid being sexualized, told Elle that she previously felt like she had to “wear a big shirt” so as not to make others “feel uncomfortable about ‘her’ big breasts’.
The star said she deals with the negativity by focusing on things like bathing, spending time with friends and walking her dogs.
Despite this, she said she still struggles, “But it’s really hard, you know? I’ve had a rough time, TBH, and I’m still dealing with it. But it’s definitely a strange life; I’ll say that.’
Another step she has taken to gain control is deleting social media apps from her phone.
“I don’t watch it anymore,” Eilish noted on an episode of the Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend podcast.
‘I deleted it all from my phone, which is such a big deal for me. ‘Cause dude, you didn’t have the internet to grow up with,” she explained.
“For me it was such a big part of – not my childhood, I wasn’t an iPad baby thank goodness – but honestly I feel like I grew up in the perfect age of the internet that it wasn’t so internet-y, I had a childhood like that and I was doing things all the time,” she recalled.
In June 2022, she told the Sunday Times: ‘My relationship with my body has been absolutely terrible, terrible since I was 11. I love that my body is mine and that I carry it with me everywhere. I kind of consider my body my friend. My ugly friend! It’s complicated. But what are you going to do?’
The Grammy-winning music artist has long spoken about her struggles with body image while in the public eye.
In a 2019 conversation with Vanity fairthe singer-songwriter revealed why she often wears loose-fitting clothes.

“To be completely honest, I only started wearing baggy clothes because of my body,” she said at the time.
In May, Billie took to Instagram to respond to critics in a Stories post.
“For the first five years of my career I was absolutely swept away by you fools for being boyish and dressing the way I did and constantly being told I would be hotter if I acted like a woman,” she wrote.
“And now that I feel comfortable enough to wear something feminine or appropriate, I’ve changed and I’m a sellout. “I can be both,” she said.

Last year, during an interview with Highsnobiety, Eilish said she believes “people have taken her more seriously” because of her “more masculine (way of dressing) throughout” her career.
“If I had been more feminine and girlish, people would have had a lot less respect for me,” she insisted.
At this point in her life, the singer said she’s “cheerful and excited about everything,” from recently wrapping up her Happier Than Ever tour and winning an Oscar for her James Bond ballad, No Time to Die.
“I could cry my eyes out just thinking about it,” the Happier Than Ever crooner said.
