Annette Response: This was one of the first styles introduced to the US by Annette. It was well received; however, many small boutiques suggested to them that it was difficult to put on so they introduced style 10581 which was THE EXACT SAME SILHOUETTE except that it had a hook and eye closure in the back that enabled the garment to be wider at the top and was easier to get into. Unfortunately, decisions often come down to numbers and they did not do enough volume to keep this style in the line. Latin America continued to see exceptional sales on the original 10496 – that customer is used to a much tighter fit and was/is willing to struggle a bit to put the bodysuit on to achieve incredible results. There are many women in the US who are not willing to go through this challenge. Style #10496 was reintroduced by HerRoom to appeal to the needs of the Latin woman or her US counterpart who is looking for firm control. The easiest way to put this garment on is to fold over the top at the waist, step into it, and pull up.
