"Shaping" Up with Real Housewives of New York Star Jill Zarin
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!)
