With over 50 years of contributions to the shapewear industry, Rago is the classic, made in America brand that combines old world shaping techniques with modern textiles. Founded by Italian immigrants, who brought traditional European tailoring skills over to the United States with them, the founders of this company tested their early designs on female friends. Eventually, a full line was developed and delivered to over one thousand stores throughout the country. In their long history, Rago has pioneered various construction techniques that give top notch shaping while remaining completely comfortable. Always utilizing the finest materials, superior crafting, and traditionally excellent fitting techniques, the Rago line is also quite affordable. And as a result of being created in the United States, this brand is able to respond to the needs of their primary market, easily adapting to changes in fabrics, trims, and body sizes. One of this brand’s advantages is their preference for the utilization of high denier Lycra. This more dense version of the Lycra thread is more powerful than the one that is used by many other manufacturers, giving it extra strength for shaping. Many of the concepts and techniques that you will find in Rago garments are propriety to the company and protected by patent.
To date, Rago has created over 300 silhouettes, each designed to meet unique and specific shaping goals for their loyal customers. Many of their fans love this line for their adherence to the traditional shapes and techniques. Garments such as the Pink and Black Waist Cincher (721) and the Lacette Open Bottom Body Briefer (9357) combine cutting edge textiles with sexy retro patterns that any vixen would be pleased to show off. Cinching options like their Waist Cincher (21) and Hi Waist Thong Back Waist Cincher (900) are wonderful for everyday wear. And for women who want a little additional shaping, the High Waist Long Leg Shaper (696) is a great option. Unlike many companies that suffered from the decline in popularity of corsetry during the 1960’s and 1970’s, Rago has consistently offered new and exciting garments, while retaining their legacy of design techniques. Still made in the USA today, these garments are as fine now as they have ever been, as thousands of Rago fans will surely attest.
