The Maidenform Magic Slimming shapewear collection offers the
targeted, slimming profile women love without the need for bulky,
sewn-in panels. Fabric with high LYCRA® fiber content
delivers a sculpted look, while the printed LYCRA® FitSense™
pattern enhances the fabric’s strength for a fit that flattens the
tummy, smooths hips and lifts the rear.
“Our new Magic Slimming collection provides an exceptional wearing
experience that will help women of all sizes look and feel their best
thanks to innovative design, comfort features and the combination of
LYCRA® fabric and FitSense™ technology,” said Tim
Blankenbaker, general manager of Maidenform Shapewear and DKNY
Intimates. “Together with The LYCRA Company, we’re listening to women
and bringing them the shapewear solutions they want.”
The collection offers three silhouettes – Thigh Slimmer, High-Waist
Thigh Slimmer and High-Waist Brief – in sizes small through 2XL. In
addition to the innovative design, the silhouettes offer HanesBrands’
Cool Comfort technology that will help keep women comfortable and a “no
slip” high waistband that utilizes silicone to minimize movement and sit
soft against the body.
“We knew Maidenform would be an ideal partner to bring this new
technology to market in the United States,” said Michelle Schlegel,
marketing manager, The LYCRA Company. “We are excited to help the
Maidenform brand take its shapewear to the next level with LYCRA®
FitSense™ technology, a patented water-based dispersion that is screen
printed directly on fabrics made with LYCRA® fiber.”
