Frederick's of Hollywood is "investing heavily" in two new lines of sexy shapewear. The "Sleek and Sexy" line is based on archival Frederick's pieces like a garter half slip, a waist cincher, a bustier and a "Booty Panty." That line is updated in dramatic black-and-white colorblocks to set it apart from the standard beige or black body-shapers, and is expected to sell for $22 to $62. The "Gorgeous Support" shapewear line is a sexier, more modern body-shaper with inset lace panels and "space-age" fabrics. The bodysuit, camisole and boy short will run $24 to $58 and hit stores in January. [WWD]
