No surprise here but there is no “one size fits all.” Women come in a multitude of shapes and sizes. It’s a good thing that Ruby Ribbon has options to take you from everyday casual to a night on the town. We have a cami for everybody, but certain cami styles work best for specific support needs and occasions, as outlined in the Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale.
All Ruby Ribbon camis and demiettes are wire free, but some are designed with more lift and compression while others offer smoothing stretch and a lighter touch.
To navigate the growing product options, just use the Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale. You’ll always get what you’re looking for. The Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale helps you determine what products will work best for you for all your lifestyle needs. It describes the support and benefits of each level offered by Ruby Ribbon and helps you choose what is right for you.
Level 1: Stretch Lace Lingerie
Starting with Level 1 lingerie, we have the beautiful Allure Collection. All of the lingerie items are made from high-quality stretch lace that fit a wide range of shapes and sizes. Level 1 styles have an under bust seam that gives light breast support and fits cup sizes A and up. Ruby Ribbon lingerie offers wirefree comfort and stunning stylish looks that are a fun addition to your wardrobe.
Level 1 is perfect for date night or as a layering item under a blouse or sweater when you just want to feel sexy. Level 1 is sheer and gets just a touch of light support from the stretch built into the lace. It’s sexy and fun but it’s not shapewear (no compression).
Camis and Demiettes for Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale Level 1:
- Allure Collection — Ruby Ribbon’s first-ever lingerie – seductively sheer, stretch lace glamour with enticing animal prints and satin accents. It’s offered in both black and shell, plus some pops of color, with options for a cami, demiette and panty.
- Valentina Collection — The Valentina Collection features a beautiful and sexy wire-free bralette with intricate lace details and scalloped edging and can be matched with a Valentina Thong.
Level 2: Smoothing support and control
Level 2 is all about smoothing with the Second Skin Collection, made for women looking for light support. It’s made from all over stretch fabric with seamless laser cut edges and an “oh so soft” feel. Second Skin is so comfortable you may forget you even have it on. It features a lightweight wicking fabric to keep you cool and create a smooth silhouette under your clothes. Second Skin is also available in lace and sheer styles in a range of colors and fits cup sizes A and up. The stitched binding under the bust provides a medium breast lift and support. The camis, briefs and panties have a silicone dot hem to keep the garments in place.
Level 2 styles are extremely versatile as everyday layers, perfect for lounging, working from home or even running errands if you just top it with a sweater or jacket. Some women even like sleeping in it because it’s so soft and comfortable.
Camis and Demiettes for Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale Level 2:
- Second Skin Cami — So impossibly soft and insanely comfortable you just might forget to take it off. The all-over stretch smooths and supports seamlessly for a perfect wire-free fit. Wicking and cooling fabric provide all-day comfort. The Second Skin collection also comes in a lace and a sheer option.
- Second Skin Demiette — Similar to the Second Skin cami, but in a demiette version. This demiette features a deep V neckline with thin straps that are both adjustable and a stitched binding under the bust for separation and support. The demiette also comes in a lace option that is lined with soft mesh fabric and in a sheer style with a sheer panel.
Level 3: Light all-over compression with breast support
When you need a little more support, try a Level 3 Lumina Collection. Lumina provides subtle shaping with 360-degree stretch. It’s perfect as a base layer when you want a slight “hug” under your outfit. It’s recommended for cup sizes B and up and Lumina has light all over compression with a wire free shelf for high breast lift and support. It also has a silicone dot hem that keeps the cami in place.
Camis for Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale Level 3:
- Lumina Collection — Choose these light support camis in a the popular Lace-trimmed option or the original scoop neck. Pick a black or pale neutral.
- Convertible Collection — The Convertible Collection includes a cami, demiette, and a shaping slip, all designed with convertible straps designed to accommodate nearly any neckline, even strapless. They can be worn 9 ways and counting with great bust support (without underwires) and no worries about it staying in place.
- Sport Demi Tank — You’ve got the moves with a Ruby Ribbon Sport Demi Tank. Get all the support and control of our Sport Demi in a full coverage tank perfect for your active lifestyle. Racerback design and light-wicking fabric keeps you cool even when you are on the move. And the tank is a breathable jersey knit with the cutest ruched front empire seam detail.
Level 4: Variable compression with high breast support
Ruby Ribbon built their reputation on Level 4 support. I personally have helped hundreds of women ditch their bras with a Level 4 cami or demiette. This level provides bust support for up to a 50K bra size and will also take about an inch off your waist. It’s the backbone of the many “before and after pictures” you may have seen to help you see the benefits of a Ruby Ribbon cami.
For more active support and shaping the Level 4 products started with Ruby Ribbon’s Original Cami, and have now grown to include a variety of collections. The Level 4 Lace Cami features wire free molded cups for high breast lift and support, variable compression with bonded panels for both back and tummy control and 360 degrees stretch for a comfortable fit. Silicone gripper hems keep the cami in place. Level 4 products are ideal for larger bust sizes, or when you want a more sculpted look under your clothes.
Camis for Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale Level 4:
- Full Support Collection — Once you step into the comfort of Ruby Ribbon, you’ll never want to wear your old bra again. We help you say “Bye Bye Bra” with options for necklines, details, and trim to go with your mood or your style. Choose the Original Full Support, Lace Full Support, Sheer Full Support, Heritage or the Athena Full Support camis for wire-free support and exceptional shaping with comfort.
- Sport Demiette — Ruby Ribbon, experts in wire-free support, introduce the first demiette option for active women of any size, up to size 50. Support your every move with the Sport Demiette (our working version of a sports bra) with adjustable, racer-back straps.
Level 5: Maximum compression and shaping with ultra breast support
For maximum support and shaping, Ruby Ribbon’s Level 5 products offer all-over compression and shaping with the Ultimate Collection. These styles all have a built-in shelf plus a sling construction for ultra breast lift and support. Level 5 features bonded panels for back and tummy support. It has a roomier hip and a longer length to accommodate curvier shapes. It also has a silicone gripper edge to keep the cami in place.
Level 5 products are perfect for larger bust, pear shapes and when you want maximum shaping and sculpting.
Camis for Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale Level 5:
- Nursing Camis and Demiettes — With an easy one-hand clasp, full belly coverage that smooths and trims, all while providing extra back support, the Nursing Cami or Nursing Demiette does it all. You’ll never want to wear your old nursing bra again. The Nursing Cami provides a clean design “T-Shirt” cami with adjustable straps and a supportive sling construction that lifts & separates breasts without underwire. Even women who weren’t nursing have selected the Nursing Cami due to the Level 5 support.
- Ultimate Collection — Celebrate your curves with ultimate control and comfort, plus adjustable straps. The extra support you need with all the stretch you want. Plus additional room in the hip for curvier shapes and a longer length.
- Diva Collection — The Diva Collection gives super shaping and wire-free support with a touch of lace in tranquil Coral or classic Black.
An Overview Video of the Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale
Sometimes a video can really help bring a subject home so we brought in the Cami Raymond, senior designer at Ruby Ribbon, to go over the Ruby Ribbon Shape and Support Scale in this 5-minute video. (I still get such a kick out of her name being Cami, and well, she’s the designer of our patented camis.)
