Leonisa is a private company that specializes in the manufacturing and sales of innerwear as well as activewear for both women and men. This company with retail stores present in many countries was founded on November 20th, 1956 by the Urreabrothers, Joaquin Eduardo and Julio Ernesto, who initially focused on specializing in the creation of women’s innerwear but have since diversified into the creation of other wears.
Leonisa has product lines for women’s shapewears, bras and panties as well as for men’s underwear.
Leonisa is more popularly known for its’ women’s shapewear which features 4 different compression levels, all of which make use of her trademark compression technology. These compression levels are:
- Super Comfy Compression, previously known as Super Comfy Control. This compression type which is Leonisa’s lightest compression level is made using Leonisa’s trademark SkinFuse fabric technology. Most wears with this Super Comfy Compression feature Leonisa’s ‘targeted compression’ design which slims target body areas while leaving others free of this slimming effect.
- Moderate Compression, previously known as Moderate Control. This compression type is made with Leonisa’strademark DuraFit fabric which is a light, soft but effective shaping material. It is however not as light as the Super Comfy Compression variant.
- Firm Compression, previously known as Firm Control. Wears featuring this compression variant are made with Leonisa’s trademark Powerslim fabric which is porous, has multidirectional reducing strength and is woven in a hexagonal pattern to ensure effectiveness and breathability.
- Extra Firm Compression, previously known as Extra Firm Control. This compression type is made from a combination of Powerslim and latex. This latex helps ensure that wearers sweat more while working out.
Launched in the 1990’s, this swimwear line offers different options for consumers based on their preference. All of these options have their individual benefits and include one-piece swimsuits, push-up swimsuits, and slimming swimwear among others. These ensure that wearers derive more benefits than just having and adorning a random swimwear that only covers certain body parts.
LEO is the rebranded name for Leonisa’s men innerwear collection, initially named Airell brand when it was launched in 1975. LEO features men’s underwear as well as men’s shapewear which has 3 compression levels options: Light, Moderate and Firm.

Wears in this brand include breathable innerwear and leggings that often times feature shaping fabrics such as DuraFit and Powerslim to the end that the shaping effect is attained even when working out.
