You probably know Jill Zarin best as one of the most controversial cast members on Bravo's hit show The Real Housewives of New York City. But, already a bestselling author, entrepreneur, and successful business owner, she's got a few more tricks up her sleeve… or should I say, underneath it. Zarin, who confirmed she will not be returning for a 5th season of the popular Bravo show, recently launched a line of Shapewear called Skweez Couture, which promises to be a more fashionable offering to what's already on the market. In fact, forget foundations—some pieces are so chic, they're meant to be seen. With a background in the hosiery business, the TV star-turned-designer felt that entering the intimate apparel industry was the perfect fit, pun intended.
As a foundations garments expert and author of The Bra Book, I've had the pleasure of previewing her Shapewear line on some of the media outlets I appear on. Jill herself gave viewers a taste when she wore a corset from the line on Watch What Happens Live. Now that the wait is over (items just hit store shelves at Lord and Taylor department stores), I sat down to get the scoop for SHAPE on some of Jill's favorites (here's a hint: if you want to score her fellow "housewives" must-have? Pick up the leggings!)
