Lyssé, a twist on the French word for smooth (pronounced Li-say) was born from an idea the founder, Beth Gold-Cohen, had to combine clothing and shapewear. Her favorite way of dressing is to wear a stylish pair of leggings and top them with a tunic, tee, or jacket. What always perplexed her was the unflattering "roll" created at the waist.

Lyssé shapewear 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.

New Brand Spotlight: Chaser

The original LA punk rock scene; a garage in Beverly Hills; creative minds seeking an outlet: these are the origins of the Chaser™ brand. Inspired by the generation that revolutionized rock 'n' roll, Chaser evolved along with the music.

Graphic tees have become softer and fabric blends have finer yarn counts, but Chaser never forgets they are from a punk rock family. Luxuriously soft fabrics make these dresses and tees the clothing their customers want to wear—not the ones they have to. Each distressed jacket or perfectly laid-back pant pushes the boundaries of yarns, washes, silhouettes and prints.

Chaser is, and always will be, at the forefront of casual fashion. What comes next is what has never been done before.

Shop Chaser on!
