John Lewis introduces new leggings that promise to help women slim without the gym

This March sees the introduction of a revolutionary new range of leggings that promise to banish every female’s worst fears – spare tyres and the muffin top. Exclusive to John Lewis and a first in the UK, the much anticipated range by American brand Lissé will be available in store and online from the beginning of March.

The Lissé leggings concept was developed in 2006 when creator Beth Gold-Cohen, a former buyer at Macy’s in New York, spotted a gap in the market. Tired of trying to negotiate legging lumps and bumps with layers of shape wear, Beth made a bid to make this universal wardrobe staple flattering and easy to wear. Lissé leggings have a built in high-waist control top which is silk lined for comfort. Offering an instant tummy tuck, the leggings are £45 and will be available in black, grey and navy.

Boasting shape wear qualities, the leggings suck in the waist, hone the hips and tighten the thighs, creating a streamlined silhouette and style solution that pays homage to the brand’s motto, ‘peace love and great legs’.

Head of Womanswear at John Lewis, Jo Hooper says, “We’re expecting Lissé leggings to be a massive hit amongst British women and the John Lewis customer, as the Lissé figure fixing qualities will appeal to every woman, no matter what their size or shape.”

Lissé leggings creator, Beth Gold-Cohen says, “My battle with cancer in 2006 resulted in my gaining weight during treatment. I became more aware of my figure than ever and it became increasingly important to find a solution that would help me regain my confidence. By combining my favorite leggings with a high-waist control top undergarment, the result was perfect!”
