Our Company History

Brothers Glenn and Bobby Bollinger were pioneers in the slimming apparel industry and created the most successful slimming product of all time. Since coming on the fitness scene in 1975 over 20 million Solar Belt Waist Trimmers have been sold… and it’s still going strong! For almost 40 years, they continue to lead the way in innovative fitness products. Today, the Bollinger family owns and operates Alliance Sports Group, a collection of consumer product companies such as NEBO Tools, Quarrow Fishing, iProtec Firearm Accessories, WeatherRite Outdoor, Bollinger Fitness and of course, Solaire Trimwear.

The Creation of Solaire

The idea to create a new brand for slimming apparel isn’t revolutionary, as these garments have legitimately established themselves as a must-have accessory for the past 40 years. Yet four decades later we decided to go back to our roots and challenge ourselves to redefine the slimming apparel category. Our goal was to create garments that fit even better than traditional activewear and look equally as good. The Solaire brand was born and made possible by advances in 3D garment design technology, which allowed us to experiment with hundreds of functional athletic fabrics and stitching patterns in order to find the perfect fit.


Our formula for success is quite simple –we listen to our customers, deliver products they love and do what it takes to make sure they’re happy with them for years to come. If you have ideas for us or just want to tell us how we can improve, we’d love to hear from you.

Standing Behind Our Quality

Because all Solaire garments are handmade and inspected by hand, at times, garments that are not up to our standards end up in the hands of our customers. If the garments we make aren’t top-notch, they end up as filler for punching bags as we absolutely do not sell Solaire garments that don’t make the grade. So if you run across a Solaire garment being sold at a discount retailer or through independent online resellers, you’re not buying the real thing.
