Shapewear is one of those items in a woman’s closet that is sometimes just so hard to find. With a plethora of brands popping up to fill in the gap (or create one on our bodies!) it’s hard to know which ones work under which material or are more controlling than others or don’t ride up, fall down… you get the point.
I had the chance to talk to TC Fine Intimates’ national sales manager Mr. Leonard Greenbaum and ask him his take on my verbalized frustrations with shapewear. I don’t know if you have ever tried TC Shapewear (I’ve only tried a couple of their waist cinchers, and yes – they do work) but by the end of our conversation, I was a believer in their products. While they are very straightforward in appearance, no added lace, frills or the lot, they are constantly developing their design and materials to add more shape AND be lightweight. Plus they have this patented “wonderful edge” on all their products that prevents it from riding up.
All I know is that they have products for shaping and smoothing that range in density to meet a variety of needs. They even have this kind of sheer hose that has rear lifting. One product that seems to be hot on the market right now, across the market that a lot of brands are producing, is what TC refers to as a Torsette. It’s a torso (waist and back) shaper that cuts low under the bust line to allow you to wear your own bra. Smooth contour lines and a defined chest? Ingenious.
