Rago Foundations, Started in 1945 by Jack Rago and Matty Marchisella, they developed a product line with care and expertise unmatched in today's world. Both Matty and Jack were Italian immigrants with a flair for design and sewing technique. Over 52 years from 1945 to 1997, Matty Marchisella developed product design and construction with exceptional detail.
Matty's design process including creating a support garment and fitting it on his close female companion, a former chain store girdle buyer. The finished Rago product shipped to over 1000 retailers in the United States. Based on their observations in the dressing room with consumers, the specialty store corset shops would relate changes to Rago that they thought would help. Changes were made to the product in collaboration with the shops until the garment was perfect for its intended purpose of shaping. Over 50 years, this process developed silhouette patterns and construction detail for over 300 silhouettes — perfectly adjusted to accomplish the shaping tasks that the consumer desired. Rago has maintained its Made in the USA credentials to insure quality control and the disciplines of construction and supply. Our long tradition of fit, function, and attention to detail is strictly continued.
We have earned an unparalleled reputation for providing unique, original designs that feature the best materials, excellent workmanship, and traditionally fine fit at retailer friendly prices. Because our support garments are all made in the USA, Rago is able to stay close to our primary market and changes in fabrics, trims, and body measurements. Rago's selection of fabrics is unique because they are constructed of higher denier Lycra, which has the most powerful and residual strength of any product. Construction techniques are, in many cases, exclusive and proprietary to only Rago garments.
Perfectly engineered, award winning products selected especially for Betty’s Essentials valued Customers.
