Say so long to the pinching and compression (ow!) of traditional shapewear worn under your clothes. Lysse, (which means smooth in French), whose popular, slimming high-waisted leggings have been a godsend to many of us gals with a bit a bulge or a mega-muffin top, has launched its first ready-to-wear collection that goes w-a-y beyond leggings potentially making those killer tight body shapers a thing of the past.

For spring, find figure flattering “performance fashion” that includes lace skirts, twill cigarette pants and pretty tops built with Lysse’s new “BackBeautiful” technology that features hidden panels that smooth the silhouette. The line comes in a variety of mix and match colors with price points ranging from $60 to $180.

“Until now, women have had to choose between looking good and feeling good.  Lysse has come up with just the solution,” said Juliana Prather, president of Lysse. You can find a selection of styles at Bloomingdale’s, Roosevelt Field, and, Tango in Roslyn, and Madison’s Niche in Garden City, or shop the whole collection at
