Lyssé, a twist on the French word for ‘smooth’ (and pronounced Li-SAY) was born from the idea to bring back great fit and comfort with fashion. In late 2009, our founder, Beth Gold-Cohen was faced with a wardrobe dilemma. Her favorite wardrobe staple, leggings, were missing something. No matter what brand or price, each pair created an omnipresent muffin top by the waistband. The solution hit one day while wearing an otherwise perfectly good pair: why not combine her favorite leggings with a high-waist control top undergarment! She set to work sewing by hand the very first pair and the result was stunning; a perfect silhouette and a truly comfortable outfit.
Launched with that one revolutionary legging, Lyssé quickly became a favorite topic amongst fashion editors and stylists. Encouraged by their immediate success, Lyssé has since expanded into a range of styles including tops, camis, wraps, skirts, pants, and of course - leggings. Constructed with a signature high waist, our 3S™ technology Slims, Smooths and Shapes with tailoring and design that flatters each woman’s shape. Lyssé designs and sources its own innovative fabrics to ensure maximum comfort, softness, and performance in every style. Women love that they feel confident while looking fabulous wearing Lyssé!
