After its founder read an article about 'intelligent textiles' being the wave of the fashion future, this French brand entered the world of shapewear in 2002 with compression tights as its debut product. What made their shapewear fabric so fab was embedded, microencapsu-lated ingredients released during wear for effortless body bettering. Lytess has since expanded its shapewear to everything from panties to pants, and their future holds forays into the sports and medical worlds. We recommend sporting their high-tech shapewear if you want your future to hold your favorite-ever physique.
