About Lysse:
Lysse, a twist on the French word for 'smooth' (and pronounced Li-SAY) was born from the idea to combine clothing with shapewear.  Founded in late 2009 by Beth Gold-Cohen, Lysse is sold in over 2,000 better specialty retailers in North America, Canada, Australia and Europe in addition to department stores such as Nordstroms, Bloomingdales, Dillards and Macy's. In 2012, Gold-Cohen partnered with Indianapolis based E&A Companies to help accelerate growth of the brand.
