During her heaviest times, SZA was 200 lbs and she used to wear baggy clothes so that she could hide her weight from the public, and the baggy clothes were what was comfortable for her. After doing this for a long time SZA got tired of dressing in the 90s style, so she decided to work on her weight because she never liked the 90s style in the first place. She wanted to start wearing what she liked. She once said:

I’m low key into the ’90s style. I’ve consistently been dressing in baggy clothes because I was heavy. I was 200 pounds, but that’s not really public knowledge. I was a lot bigger, so wearing baggy clothes was not so much like a ’90s thing, it was what was comfortable and what fits.”   

During an interview in 2017, SZA spoke about her weight loss while protecting her fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar’s controversial lyrics about stretch marks. She said;

“If you want to support women, then you should support all shapes of women. I used to be 200 pounds and I have stretch marks all over my body. I found more comfort and soothing with Kendrick Lamar reinforcing that I’m beautiful”.

During this time period, she decided to start taking care of and working on herself for weight loss.
