Cardi B's body "is not meant for a size two".

The chart-topping rap star admits that her curvaceous figure creates headaches for Kollin Carter, her stylist.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Cardi shared: "There are so many obstacles against us. For example, this body is not meant for a size two."

Despite this, Cardi believes they've managed to overcome the challenge in recent years.

The 31-year-old star - who is one of the world's best-selling rappers - said: "It was not easy, but we make it look easy. Our door was closed many times … but we’re here because we do it well. I’m not going to be humble about it."

Kollin believes they've become an increasingly influential force in the fashion world in recent times.

The stylist explained: "We’ve given look after look, year after year, we’ve reached into archives that are impossible to reach into. We caused a cultural shift.

"I don’t think there were many women like Cardi who existed in the fashion space. Now there are a ton of other rap females who aspire to be in that space because they see what’s possible. We set trends."

Cardi has enjoyed a meteoric rise over recent years.

But the rap star previously claimed that she was happier before she found fame and success.

Cardi told CR Fashion Book magazine: "One positive thing is that, my family, whatever they want, they get. Everything that I want to buy, I can get. I don’t have to worry so much about my future.

"One negative thing is that, even though I’m happy, I feel like I was a little bit happier two or three years ago when I had less money."

Cardi also feels as though she's lost some control over her own life.

She said: "I had less people who had opinions about my life. I felt like my life was mine.

"Now I feel like I don’t even own my life. I feel like the world owns me."
