Know Your Shapewear with Secrets in Lace

Last week, we started writing about the small differences that can separate different types of lingerie. Whether its between a Fully Fashioned French Heel, or a Fully Fashioned Euro Heel (see last week’s blog!), the definitive terms of lingerie can sometimes leave you feeling confused.  This week, we’re focusing on the different types of shapewear that you can buy.

We’ll start with the Girdle, which can come in a panty style, or an open bottom style. This garment is a nice alternative to a garter belt because it still has the garter straps to hold up your stockings, but also provides shaping and tummy control.  The Elizabeth Open Bottom Girdle has been a favorite for years, and comes in a variety of colors. It features a side zipper for easy dressing, and would look seamless under your favorite dress.

The Panty Girdle is similar with the garter straps and shaping control, but is obviously in the shape of a panty rather than being open. Some women prefer this style regardless of what they’re wearing, or you can remove the garter straps and having a great shaping panty under your pants.

Waist Cinchers may look similar to a girdle at a glance, but these actually sit higher up on your hips, where a girdle extends down your thigh. Garments like our Helen Waist Cincher feature hook and eye closure in the front and provides light tummy control with our spandex and nylon materials. This option is a good pick for clothes that may be a little tighter around your mid-section and you want to have a flatter appearance.

Garter Belts are probably the least constricting of all the shapewear. Their primary purpose to to provide the garter straps to hold up your stockings, and of course for a sexy addition to your look. Since these are a little lighter weight, they are a perfect option for all-day wear. And who wouldn’t want to spend all day in our Leopard Garter Belt?


Tying it all together is our Rago Shapewear Salon. This is where you’ll find a wide variety of our Rago Shapewear. From garter belts to girdles, there no shortage of fabulous ways to shape your body. One of our favorites is the Lacette Open Body Briefer. Similar to the girdle, this piece extends to full body coverage.
