Blackpink Rose’s slim Waist Size | Body type:
With 5 Feet 6 Inches, Rosé is the tallest member of “Blackpink” but the curiosity amongst her fans is about her incredibly slim looking waist. Acknowledging the speculation, on March 26, 2017 episode of “King of Mask singer”, Rosé revealed that her waist is 24 inches.
She said, “I don’t think a person can live with a waist of 19 inches. That’s the size that fans have assumed, but I recently asked my stylist while altering my clothes. It is 24 inches.”
But netizens weren’t seems to digest that and rightly so because she corrected herself on Channel+ VLIVE, that her pants size is 24 and her waist is smaller than 24 inches (60.96 cm). Combining the fact that she is tall and has wide hips, it’s easy to see why her waist appear to be around 19 inches. Whatever may be the exact waist size of Rosé, one thing is sure, she spend a lot of time exercising to maintain it, because every BLINK know she will eat anything in her way. In the preparation video for ‘Ddu Du Ddu Du’ on VLIVE, she mentioned that apart from dancing, Pilates and cardio exercises are part of her routine.
