Rago – In existence since the 1950′s, NYC-based Rago is one of the most popular shapewear brands in the world. American Shapewear, Rago’s own direct-to-consumer retailer, carries every single size and style this company makes (including the ones you’re not likely to find stocked anywhere else). Classic items like their Lacette corselette (probably my most favorite thing they make) are available up to a 48DD, while other items like their retro shaping briefs and girdles are available in up to a size 8XL (fitting a 46″ waist and 56″ hips). Garter belts and waist cinchers are available in up to a size 6XL. If you’ve felt frustrated about the lack of pinup shapewear in your size, start here.
