What you wear can say a lot about you. Therefore, it takes careful consideration when shopping for items that best reflect one’s personal style. Two of the major things to keep in mind when shopping for any fashion item is comfort and fit.

From office attire to casual wear, it’s important to find a balance between style, comfort, and fit. Among the list of items that are difficult to shop for is shape wear.

Michigan fashion veteran, Linda Schlesinger understands this challenge and provides the perfect fit for any body type with her fashion collection.

In 2009, Linda Schlesinger created the collection, Skinny Tees after being inspired. She realized that body-conscious women, of all ages, needed a stylish camisole option to feel sexier.

Schlesinger put her 30 years of fashion experience to work which lead to the instant success of Skinny Tees. Skinny Tees is a fashion collection of shape wear that includes tanks, tees, tops, skirts, dresses, bandeaus and tights.

Skinny Tees started off with only a few colors and a one-size-fits-all ultra, comfortable style. Since then the line has expanded to 60 colors and over 20 different body styles. Last month, the collection expanded further with the launch of an active wear line.

“What sets us apart from other shape wear customers is our vast selection of colors, great customer service and styles that always keep coming”, says Schlesinger.

Schlesinger shows no signs of slowing down with the expansion of Skinny Tees when she revealed future plans for the collection. “We are currently working on several new ideas. A yoga line is almost ready for preview along with a dancewear line. We have been working on a cashmere line of sweaters in a full range of colors”, says Schlesinger.

In addition to its diverse selection, the line offers a comfortable fit. The non-roll up material makes women appear up to two times smaller in size. The material also allows for perfect layering and comfort.

Although Skinny Tees is certainly ideal for any exercise session, it also provides a stylish, variety of items to create a casual look. The items in the collection can easily be layered over or under any clothing, in addition to being worn alone.

For example, a leopard cami from the collection would look good with black jeans and stylish red flip flops or a pair of heels to achieve a sassy, casual look.
