What's the SKINNY on skinnytees?
skinnytees, the diet you wear started as a collection of tanks and tops for fun, flirty and fabulous women. Launched in 2009 by fashion industry veteran Linda Schlesinger Wagner, skinnytees was created to quell women’s most essential need and hardest fought fight… the search for the “perfect top!” The line began with just a handful of colors and one simple but perfect one size fits most camisole. Soft, seamless and fitted, skinnytees shape, flatter, and frame the body whether worn alone or layered. It stays put and keeps you covered when bending over or reaching up! With more than 120 colors and prints and over 60 styles sold worldwide including tanks, tees, bralettes, bandeaus, dresses, active-wear, leggings, and cardigans - skinnytees fits any occasion.
skinnytees is a brand for all women, all ages, all sizes, from day to night, work out to work, pregnancy to post baby and everything in between.
And that’s…..THE SKINNY!

OWNER + FOUNDER
After more than 30 years in the apparel industry, Michigan native Linda Schlesinger-Wagner, was inspired to create a brand that filled a void she felt existed in the women's apparel industry. In 2009, skinnytees (TM) started with a single one-size-fits-most silhouette, the seamless camisole. Schlesinger-Wagner didn't stop there and quickly rolled out a complete line of essential styles that helped redefine the smoothwear industry. Through the years, skinnytees has grown, and is now firmly rooted in the belief of offering a product for all women - all sizes, all colors, and all ages.
