Caitlyn Jenner's not easily offended. The reality TV star spoke to the Today show's Matt Lauer for a new, two-part interview — and in the preview for the first part, which airs today, Wednesday, Sept. 9, the former Olympian revealed she's not upset about the Caitlyn Jenner-inspired Halloween outfits.

The controversial costume, which features a white fitted bodice just like the one Jenner wore on her now famous coming out Vanity Fair cover back in July, has been met with outrage from much of the transgender community.

But the I Am Cait star, who has seen the costume, complete with "Call Me Caitlyn" sash and brown wig, insists she doesn't find the creation hurtful, and actually just wishes it was made with better quality materials!

"When you hear that there are companies out there that want to do Caitlyn Jenner costumes for Halloween from the Vanity Fair cover, are you in on the joke or do you think it's offensive?" Lauer asked his guest in the preview clip.

"I'm in on the joke. I don't think it's offensive at all," Jenner replied. "I know the community does and they've gotten a lot of criticism for doing it. I think it's great."

The quality of the outfit isn't quite up to Jenner's exacting requirements. "They could have a better looking outfit for him, you know?" she said, laughing.

"We could have done my own costume," she then joked to Lauer. "I mean that was a serious bustier on the cover of Vanity Fair, you know?"
