E&A Industries has moved to acquire New York-based body-slimming apparel brand Lysse for an undisclosed sum.

Established in 2010, Lysse specialises in ready-to-wear fashion featuring all-in-one torso, tummy and thigh slimming control.

The business has plans to expand its existing line beyond leggings and to accelerate growth through increased distribution in North America and beyond.

As part of the deal, founder Beth Gold will remain as a partner and chief creative officer.

“We were attracted to Lysse because in less than three years the brand expanded rapidly with amazing loyalty among women once they try a pair,” said Devin Anderson, CEO of E&A Industries.
