There’s something comfortable about loving who you are and how you look. There something stylish about walking in a room and feeling great. And, there’s something awesome in feeling beautiful – like when you’re around your BFFs!
At Girlfriendology, we love to share things we’d recommend to our girlfriends. So, girlfriends – we’d love to introduce you to Lyssé Fashion! Here’s their great story:
Lyssé, a twist on the French word for ‘smooth’ (and pronounced Li-SAY) was born from the idea to bring back great fit and comfort with fashion. In late 2009, their founder, Beth Gold-Cohen was faced with a wardrobe dilemma. Her favorite wardrobe staple, leggings, were missing something. No matter what brand or price, each pair created an omnipresent muffin top by the waistband. The solution hit one day while wearing an otherwise perfectly good pair: why not combine her favorite leggings with a high-waist control top undergarment! She set to work sewing by hand the very first pair and the result was stunning; a perfect silhouette and a truly comfortable outfit.
Launched with that one revolutionary legging, Lyssé quickly became a favorite topic amongst fashion editors and stylists. Encouraged by their immediate success, Lyssé has since expanded into a range of styles including tops, camis, wraps, skirts, pants, and of course – leggings. Constructed with a signature high waist, their 3S™ technology Slims, Smooths and Shapes with tailoring and design that flatters each woman’s shape. Lyssé designs and sources its own innovative fabrics to ensure maximum comfort, softness, and performance in every style. Women love that they feel confident while looking fabulous wearing Lyssé!
I received my pair of Lyssé leggings to try out and was instantly impressed with the quality and weight of the fabric. These aren’t typical leggings (that show your undies through them!). Plus, the pair they sent to me have a gorgeous pattern. I couldn’t help it, I had to tweet about them as soon as I opened the box! (Note: the lighting is bad in this tweet photo – see the photo below for the beautiful design on these Lyssé Leggings!)
The fit was awesome. The cotton, rayon and spandex blend gives the polished look of tailored pants and the comfort of leggings. The polyester and spandex panel provides elegant smoothing in this sharp cigarette pant. They’re ankle length and have faux welt pockets at the back. Plus, I love that they’re stylish AND washable.
Plus, as you can see in the collage of images below (with me in the center!), there are lots of options for how to wear them – with boots (being winter and not having a pedicure recently, I opted for this!) and a jacket. As soon as Spring arrives and my toes are show-offy, I’ll be wearing my Lyssé Leggings with my rocking platforms and big wedges. I can’t wait!
Lyssé doesn’t just have leggings. They also have tops, wraps, skirts, capri’s and more. Lyssé clothing offers a range of silhouettes including tops, tanks, and their revolutionary leggings. Constructed with a double layer of control fabric at the waist, they sit at just the right place to eliminate “the roll” while slimming and smoothing each woman’s shape. Check out Lyssé fashion!
So, girlfriends, just like a wonderful BFF who makes you feel beautiful, comfortable and stylish – Lyssé helps you love your curves, feel beautiful and stylish. They’re ‘Girlfriend Recommended!’
