The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel has shown her new Skinnygirl empire to include shapewear, which she terms as "lazy lingerie." The new line of Skinnygirl Solutions is now available at Macy's department stores and features tanks, shorts and bodysuits under the $50 mark, which feature retro shapes and lace prints that don't need to be completely hidden.
"The problem with shapewear is that it's not something you want people to see," Frankel told People magazine. "But this is something you actually want people to see."
"It's lazy lingerie," Frankel continued. "You're wearing it now, and if you take your clothes off, you're already sexy for your husband or your boyfriend or for a date."
The reality star turned business woman began her shapewear venture with the Skinnygirl Smoothers n' Shapers line, which allowed women of all sizes to add shapers to their own bras. Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy currently appear in the Bravo reality series "Bethenny Ever After," which is on its third season. Frankel married Hoppy in 2010 and gave birth to their daughter Bryn in May 2010. The couple's wedding and Frankel's pregnancy was documented on the show "Bethenny Getting Married?"
