Glamour Recommends Rago

Glamour shared the Rago Shapewear style 9357 corselet in their list of top 3 “Best Slimming Underwear“! Once you wear this piece under a tight-fitting dress, you’ll understand how it earned its place there.

1. For a special occasion – Rago Shapewear: Rago Shapewear’s classic foundation garments have been a gold standard in the United States for more than 65 years—and no wonder, since they work like a charm! The stretch lace provides a firm hold and the targeted boning and stitching help control extra-jiggly parts. Do you watch shows set in the 1960s—like Pan Am and Mad Men? Rago undergarments are often features on screen.

“… No, I’m talking about what used to be called corsetry. Foundation garments. Girdles, corselettes, that sort of thing. The sort of thing your mother or indeed, grandmother would have worn. If you watch TV shows like ‘Mad Men’, ‘Pan Am’ or more recently, ‘Masters of Sex’, you’ll have seen them. Most of what you see in those shows comes from a company called Rago, and it’s readily available. Here’s a couple of my favourites…” – Joanne
