hidden-shapewearWith Ruby Ribbon clothing, one of the unique ways that the clothes are made to help you look sleeker and slimmer is the “shaping sleeve.”  So, what it is?

A shaping sleeve is an inner slip built right into many of the tops, as well as all dresses and skirts. This sleeve has a silicone gripper edge to ensure that the garment stays in place.

The shaping sleeve in the tops also has a shelf bra included. Depending upon your size, you may be able to wear one of the Ruby Ribbon tops without a bra. If you need more support (and many well), layer in a Ruby Ribbon Classic Cami or wear a lightweight bra.

Here are a couple of my favorite Ruby Ribbon tops that have shaping sleeves built in:

Versatile Top

This top is versatile because it can be worn with your choice of two necklines — a flattering scoop nect or a complimentary crew neck. It also comes in a berry color that looks great with a black skirt.


Ruched Top

I have worn the Ruby Ribbon Ruched Top a lot this summer. Both the ruching and the shaping sleeve slim you throughout the bodice. This top looks great with a black skirt and is a basic piece to have in your wardrobe to wear under jackets.
