On this week’s episode of The Voice, Meghan Trainor and Mike Sabath hit the stage to perform their new hit song Wave. Trainor appeared on stage dressed in a skimpy all-white outfit that sparked a row on Twitter.
Many blasted her outfit, saying it looked like she was missing “her pants to cover her underwear,” while others resorted to fat-shaming..

Is it my imagination or is Meghan Trainor missing something? Like her pants to cover her underwear #TheVoice

I wasn't the only one who commented on what she was wearing. She's a beautiful woman, but her outfit looked like somebody pieced it together and forgot to put some of the bottom on it.

But some Twitter users came to Trainor’s defense, saying that she looked gorgeous in the outfit and that she was free to wear anything that she wanted.
@Meghan_Trainor hi, please disregard all of the white 45+ year old parenrs tweeting about your fit when they should be watching their kids instead!

Beautiful song! Enjoyed your performance. Ignore the comments on your outfit. All that matters is your comfort level. ?
