You love your Ruby Ribbon cami! Yes! And you want it to last as long as possible (we all do!) So how should you take care of it to ensure maximum support and longevity?
Today, I’m giving you the low down on how to care for your Ruby Ribbon shapewear to extend the life of these important pieces in your lingerie drawer.
Handle with care – Pull on your cami or slip gently from the neckline. Don’t pull up from the straps.
Rest between wearings – We recommend you wait 24 hours between wearings to extend the life of your Ruby Ribbon cami or slip. I like to say “it needs time to go back where it came from.”
Mind the edge – The first place you’ll likely notice waer on your Ruby Ribbon cami is the invisible gripper edge. The gripper edge should always be placed on clean, dry, and lotion-free skin or on top of Ruby Ribbon shaping bottoms. The silicone will fray over time, but this is normal wear and tear and I find that that it will still stay put. It helps to roll up the gripper edge before you pull up your cami in order to protect it.
Machine Wash – Use cold water with regular detergent after 2-3 washes. Never use Woolite or fabric softener. Make sure your cami it “outside-out,” (not inside out) when washing. Wash it in a lingerie bag if you have one. (It’s also fine to hand wash your Ruby Ribbon shapewear if you wish.)
Air Dry – Dry it flat or on a line. Our wicking material dries quickly. You should never put your Ruby Ribbon shapewear in the dryer.
These tips will help you get the longest life from the Ruby Ribbon items you love.
CEO Anna Zornosa often says she set out with Ruby Ribbon to make shapewear products that were both comfortable and pretty and she definitely hit it out of the park with the new Sheer Demiette and matching Sheer Shaping Briefs. Both are comfortable enough for Saturday errands but also sexy enough for Saturday night.
Like our other two demiettes, this new Sheer Demiette delivers! It provides all the definition and support of an underwire bra, but also all the comfort of our famous camis. We find some women just prefer the more “bralike” option that our demiettes provide.
Here are some of the key characteristics of the new Sheer Demiette:
Wire-free support for all cup sizes B and above
Sexy sheer panel neckline
Straps can be worn straight or racerback
Wicking fabric keeps you cool and dry
Stays put with our invisible gripper edge
Offered in three colors – black, pale and a gorgeous Plum option
Comfortable and pretty
While we’re talking about new shapewear, let’s not forget our beautiful relaunched Sheer Brief, as well. Offered in both black and pale (to match the Sheer Demiette, obviously), the Sheer Briefs feature Ruby Ribbon’s signature tummy control panels. They also have sheer panels on the sides and a sheer fabric in back. The ruching in back will give you a little lift there too.
These Sheer Briefs are making a comeback and I can tell you, when we had them a few years ago, they were my personal favorite for the Ruby Ribbon briefs. I liked them because they were cut a little higher in the leg, making them fit me a bit better. They are worn at your natural waist and have a pretty picot-edged waistband.
Wear the Sheer Briefs under high-waisted pants and any of our Ruby Ribbon leggings for no panty lines and a smooth silhouette. They will leave you feeling both comfortable and pretty.
Make a Set! Did you know… You can add a Sheer Brief for $10 OFF for every Cami or Demiette you purchase?
If you’ve been hanging around here on “Style with Char” for a hot minute, you’ve probably heard me talk about ditching your bra. Hopefully, many of you have already had the chance to break up with your bra, but maybe you’re holding out? You maybe have concerns that the Ruby Ribbon Bye Bye Bra cami just won’t work for you. Let’s talk about that….
Here are some of the reasons that I hear from women who are holding out about breaking up with their bra, along with a few thoughts from my perspective.
“I doubt it will fit my cup size!”— For nearly all women, we have a cami to fit. Our sizes range from 30B to 50K bra sizes.
“There is no way it will give me enough support.”— When you first look at a Ruby Ribbon cami, I agree it looks like it just won’t work. It’s the technology built into the cami that is different from anything you might have tried. It will support up to a K bra size without underwires. I have helped more than 600 women of ALL sizes ditch their bras for good. And, according to the stats that Ruby Ribbon tracks, 90% of our customers tell a friend about Ruby Ribbon because they’re so impressed.
“I don’t see enough coverage in the cami?” — The cups in a Ruby Ribbon cami are thin. To give you a little more coverage, we do offer petals, which provide a bit of shaping or some discrete coverage for those who want it. About 1/3 of my clients get petals to tuck into their cami.
“I would want something more like a bra, not a cami.” — In addition to the cami, we also have a Demiette, which is more “bralike,” but still gives you great definition and support. Our demiettes fit women with a 32-44 bra band size.
“I would get too hot wearing that.” — A Ruby Ribbon cami has wicking properties just like high performance athletic wear, pulling heat and moisture away from your skin. I wear a Ruby Ribbon cami all year, including humid days in ND.
“On me, that cami is going to roll up and be uncomfortable.” — Thanks to the invisible silicone gripper edge on a Ruby Ribbon cami, it won’t roll. If it’s rolling, you’re wearing the wrong size.

“I wear my Ruby Ribbon cami(s) almost every day, that’s why I have six or seven. You know the saying, wear one, rest one, wash one, or something like that. I love how it really does take an inch off my waist.””
I love mine have about 5 to 6 of them wear them everyday. I hate bras now for sure. I would love another one.”
“Love my cami it’s comfortable and supportive for my back.”
“Shape, smooth and look great under sheer tops!”
“I love hiding my muffin top!“
“Currently wearing 1 of mine. Holding all jiggly parts where they should be.”
“I’m loved how it fit when I tried it on last week. It was awesome how it skimmed out my rolls and gave me confidence in just that little time of having it on.”
“Comfy and no clasps poking my back.”
“I love the comfy straps and not having to adjust the back or underwire of my bra.”
“I have 3 and find myself wanting to wear one all the time. So comfortable!”
I’ll admit that most of these quotes could have come directly from me too.

I had a super fun Ruby Ribbon trunk show last night, with a big groups of fun women that were waiting to ditch their bras…
A few of the women arrived a bit late and missed out on my short presentation on what makes Ruby Ribbon so unique. When one of them took the Convertible Slip to try it on, she came out and told me it just didn’t fit right in the bust area.
Lucky for me, I remember that she missed the presentation and I asked her if she “stepped in.” She flashed me a look of surprise that told me she didn’t know that part. So I “suggested” that she take it off and try it on again, this time stepping in.
She was amazed, and she now has a new Convertible Slip on it’s way to her closet. We chatted about how much difference just how you put it on made. Since this something so easy to forget, I thought today might be a good day to give you that reminder. Cheers!
