Pin Up Persuasion's "Secret Weapon"

The blogger behind Pin Up Persuasion calls our shapewear her "secret weapon" for achieving a smooth silhouette under her pink skirt. She tried girdle style 1294 and fell in love!

"Don’t you just hate when you can see those nasty lumps and bumps when wearing wiggle style dresses or skirts? Is there a way to fake that perfect silhouette when you have a curvacious figure without sacrificing comfort? The answer is YES!!! What is this secret weapon you ask…? The Rago 1294 Open Bottom Girdle Extra Firm Shaping."

Look for Less with Rago

Don't have $1,000 to spare on a lingerie bodysuit? The Lingerie Addict used our shapewear as a beautiful alternative for under $75!

"On the left, we have an example of Dolce & Gabbana’s classic bodysuit as seen on runway model Sessilee Lopez. Notice the bullet bra cups, wide waistband, and brief bottoms. On the right, we have Rago’s longline lace bra and lacette brief. When worn together, these items are a wonderful approximation of Dolce & Gabbana’s bodysuit. Best of all, while the Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit retails for upwards of $1600, you can purchase the Rago bra and briefs for less than $75."
