The Company

Skinister is a leader in realistic prosthetic shapewear. The company uses medical grade materials and cutting-edge technology to create body-shaping appliances that look, feel and move like you!

With roots in aerospace mold-making, the founders began creating specialty silicone appliances for cancer survivors, transgender women and Hollywood films. Eventually, the Skinister brand was envisioned to bring these high-performance products to home wardrobes!

In 2014, Skinister developed DurablendTM edges. The mesh-infused edges are so thin, they’re invisible beneath leggings and tights. Co-founder Judi Gordon points out, “We designed them to be invisible to the eye… and also invisible to the touch. They’re that good!” They’re also so strong that they’re guaranteed not to tear, and they’re backed by a 12 month warranty.

Skinister Realistic Shapewear is hand-made by a team of Special FX artists in northern California. Although the company is best known for prosthetic silicone hip pads, product designer David Shelton says, “We have some amazing things on the way that are going to change how people think about shapewear.”
