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?
As you plan your outfit for the holiday events coming up, I’d like to introduce you to our newest slip, the Sheer Slip.
Modeled after our Sheer Collection camis, this slip features a beautiful v-neck with picot edging. And the adjustable straps can be crossed if you need a racerback.
Like all our slips, you can expect the following from this slip:
Support without underwires
Molded cups to ensure you don’t have the dreaded “uniboob” (and the best part is that no bra is required)
Variable compression for support and comfort
Wicking fabric to keep you cool and dry
Invisible gripper edge at the bottom to keep your slip in place all day (wear over hose or on bare legs, no worries of movement)
Support for all cup sizes (32 to 44 bra sizes)
Choose black or pale
Pair this slip with Ruby Ribbon Shaping Briefs, lightweight Boy Shorts or the On-Waist Thigh Slimmer to create your smoothest look. If you plan to wear a dress this holiday season, put this new Sheer Slip on your “must have” short list.
If you follow my blog, you’ve already seen some of the “before and after” pictures I’ve posted showing how a Ruby Ribbon foundational garment can help your Lularoe favorites look smoother.
Now, Julia K, who is the namesake of the Julia dress from Lularoe (yes, you read that correctly, the namesake), has tried Ruby Ribbon and shared her own “before and after” pictures.
She is wearing a Ruby Ribbon Full Body Shaper and an Original Demiette under her dress (and no bra, no underwires, no discomfort). You can see the support and shaping she’s getting from her new Ruby Ribbon secret.
With our Fall 2018 capsule, it’s not just about brand new items. Sometimes, we just make what we have a bit better for you. So, here’s the scoop on two updates to our current offerings.
Remember our super popular R&R Pants? (We sold out of them once already but they’re back in stock.) You probably already have a pair? Well, good news. If you want to LIVE in your comfy jogger-style pants, you can! We are now offering them in Charcoal Heather in addition to black. They feature a fold-down waistband with a drawstring and come in sizes XS to 3XL.
If you love our Sheer High Waist Brief, now we offer it in a wider size range. We added 3XL to our offering to fit more women. This garment provides control that shapes and smooths your midriff, tummy, waist and hips. Wear it with your own bra or with a Ruby Ribbon Demiette for comfort free from underwires. So pretty with sheer details.
A new Lularoe item can make you smile, with a fun or funky pattern that is “just the thing” for your wardrobe. But if you have the right foundation pieces under, you can rock your Lularoe with maybe an even bigger smile.
Check out how you can rock your Lularoe with THE BEST foundation pieces underneath; get pieces that work for you but are still amazingly comfortable. Our “before and after” pictures always tell a great story.
Say Bye Bye Bra and hello to a super smooth look with a Ruby Ribbon cami under your Lularoe Randy – a simple but stylish t-shirt with raglan sleeves.
Our model is getting great support without underwires from her Ruby Ribbon cami. This look brings you comfort and confience both inside and out.
The Lularoe Maria Dress features cap sleeves, a high neckline and a slight “high-low” hemline for a peak at your cute shoes.
It’s the Perfect Tee from Lularoe with a fun swing shape and flirty side slits, making it super flattering.
Our Ruby Ribbon Demiette would be perfect under the Perfect Tee. You’ll get all the definition and support of an underwire bra, in an on- trend cropped style. (Or choose a Ruby Ribbon cami if you want a little more tummy shaping.)
The styling on this Lularoe Julia dress is fun with the unique ruching the model added. And the color-blocking on this specific dress is so cute – feminine and flattering.
With a form-fitting dress like Julia, you definitely want the “after” picture, using a secret Ruby Ribbon weapon — the Convertible Slip with the most tummy shaping but with comfort. And, it’s also a supportive but totally underwire free option.
With summer comes new needs for shapewear, am I right? We open up our necklines with strapless, one-shoulder and racerback. We put on crop tops (well, I don’t, but lots of women do). We wear more v-necks to show off those summer tans. And, we toss on summer dresses to stay cool while looking great.
Well, we’ve got your covered with shapewear that works perfectly for the summer. We’ll support you in total comfort with no underwires ever!
Here are the 4 key summer shapewear pieces you need in your lingerie drawer:
Convertible Cami – you love your Ruby Ribbon cami but the straps are showing under your favorite summer top. Pick up a Convertible Cami to alleviate that strap agitation. Configure it for nearly any neckline, including strapless. We even offer clear straps when you just have no other option but a strap.
Convertible slip or V-neck slip – look your best in your summer sundresses or special occasion dress with a Ruby Ribbon slip. Choose the Convertible Slip for no-show under almost any neckline and the most shaping and smoothing. Try the V-neck Slip for a little less hug, but still a smooth look. With either, no bra needed (but no worrying about support and lift)
Lace or Original Full Support Demiette – you can wear a Ruby Ribbon Demiette anytime, but when you choose to rock a crop top, you’ll want a wirefree and painfree Demiette as your supportive choice
Boy short or Thigh slimmers – on waist or high waist – we choose dresses and slips more in the summer, for a cool and comfortable but still smart look. Underneath these, take a little help from a Boy Short if you only need a light and smoothing foundation piece. But if you want more thigh and waist slimming with deeper control, choose a Ruby Ribbon Thigh Slimmer in either high waist or on-waist. (The on-waist is my “go-to” under summer dresses)

Do you sleep in a bra?
Since I’ve been a Ruby Ribbon stylist, I’ve learned that many women do. That’s why we’re introducing our Dream Cami, so comfortable that you may want to sleep in it. No bra needed!
This cami features a lace V-neck and hem that can be tucked in, or not? It has the same shaping and smoothing that you’ve come to over in our camis. Depending upon your bust size, you can choose to wear it with or without a bra, when you wear it during the day.
I’ve seen some women even wear it as a top — it’s just a dream! We offer it in black, white and pale, and in bra sizes 32-40.
