New beach styles launched!

If you’ve got your mind on the beach and a day of boating, don’t worry about what you’ll be wearing. With the latest swimsuits debuting last month and our new beach styles just launched, it’ll be smooth sailing!

Here’s the details on the newest beach styles just launching

  • Our new Graphic Caftan will get you noticed on the beach! It’s loose and flowing with a bold and graphic print of tropical colors paired with both navy and black. It will match any RR Swim piece perfectly. It features a v-neck and is knee length with flirty side slits. I see this as a “go to” beach style
  • Our bestselling tankini, the Bali Tankini, just launched in Ruby Red (in addition to the existing Garden print and Navy Polka Dot). Both feature a built-in metal necklace detail; the garden and red both have a gold necklace and the navy dot has a silver necklace. And, like all our swimsuits, this suit is UPF protective and chlorine resistant. Pair this top with our Swim Skirt or my personal favorites, the Ruched Bottoms.
  • Our Beach Pants made of breezy cotton gauze will soon be your new favorite summer pant. Pull them on over a swimsuit or pair them with a tankini top on the patio. They’ll look cool and you’ll feel cool. (Wash in cold, lay flat to dry. Cotton gauze will shrink if not cared for properly.)

Shimmy into this sparkly holiday tunic

I think the new Shimmy Tunic Dress is the piece in the 2018 Winter/Holiday Collection getting the most buzz. It will go great at the most festive or elegant event this season.

Check out the bugle beads sewn in the shoulder straps, and these straps are part a cold-shoulder cutout feature, as well. Talk about eye-catching, and with a light shimmer in this beautiful silver heather color.

This top also features an elegant draped neckline, long sleeves, and a wide band at the bottom. You can move the band higher or lower for a variety of different looks for this top. Note you can wear it alone as a sparkly dress, or pair it with a skirt, pants or leggings (I’d go for black but other colors would be fun also) for a long and lean look.

As always, we have your perfect fit with sizes ranging from extra small to 3XL. Here’s a link to all my posts showcasing the 2018 Winter and Holiday Collection. Check back as it takes a few weeks to get them all previewed for you.

Lularoe’s Julia dress namesake showcases Ruby Ribbon

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.

What are the benefits of Ruby Ribbon shapewear?

Yes, we call it shapewear, because that’s what all of you are used to calling it and we want you to recognize what we do. But really, it’s so different than the shapewear out there that we need a new name.

Our products are revolutionary – seriously life-changing foundations for any outfit. We deliver real results, and with comfort.  This is not your once-in-a-blue-moon torture device.


  • Support any cup size with NO precise cup-measuring required
  • NO underwire
  • Lift your bust & butt
  • Smooth your back, hips & waist
  • Sculpt a little bit or a lot but always comfortable
  • Banish bra and panty lines
  • Stay Put – with our gripper edge that keeps your cami in place!

Editors love our product as do our customers.  90% of our customers return to purchase more.  And 90% tell a friend.

Your "go to" top this season

Our Bell Sleeve Top is sure to be a hit with many women this season with its wrap silhouette and ruching on the sides. It’s flattering and comfortable and made to go with so many outfits.  And the bell sleeves, so comfy.
This top comes in black, but it also comes in this fun “ruby camo” pattern too. Ruby camo is shades of wine and black.
Pair the black with well, black, and then add in some color for the fun of it —  red, teal, blue, soft yellow, whatever is your “thing.”  It’s also shown below with our new Printed Leggings in three patterns to chose from.
Pair the “camo” with black pants or skirts, and then add one of our favorite Ruby Ribbon jackets to bring it up to an even more professional level. You are going to find so many ways to wear this print.

A crisp, polished look

FALL.ONE.KUDOS8.jpgWomen are already raving about the newest pants added to the Ruby Ribbon line — the Stretch Woven Pant.
With stretch in two directions, these pants will move with you throughout the day, but also promise to deliver a crisp and polished look. They feature the signature Ruby Ribbon “skinny band” to tuck in your tummy and a invisible size zipper. With a slim, straight leg, they look great with heels or a flat. And, you can get them in either mink brown or basic black.
I would pair these pants with a crisp white button-down shirt and a jacket; use a denim jacket for a casual look or a polished blazer for an office vibe. I think they will be super cute with a Ruffle Top or the Tuck Tunic from this summer’s collection too.

It's Strapless Season

It’s going to be 80 degrees here tomorrow and it’s definitely strapless season. Be sure you have the right foundation under your strapless dress or top. Our strapless slips and camis even come with detachable straps that can be used in various configurations to fit any neckline.
It's Strapless Season
Both items are available in both pale and black. And, they are designed to be worn brafree — no need to wear a bra and you’ll still have a super supportive undergarment.
Get out there and enjoy the summer knowing you look great.

This looks like Swimsuit Bingo…

As I was creating this graphic today to share all nine options of Ruby Ribbon swimsuits today, it occurred to me that the layout made it look exactly like swimsuit Bingo!
I’ve included each of the various swimsuits in all color options to give you a complete picture of all your choice. We have three tank suits (aka one-piece) and two tankini tops The tankini tops can be paired with either our ruched bottom or swim skirt, both with shaping built in.
The tankini tops are looser and beautiful without shaping. The tank suits are all super slimming with shaping built into them.  (I marked them with the name so you can pick them out if you want to shop for them on my website.)
