The Women Behind The Underwear April 28, 2016 21:27

Each MADI style is named after individual women who’ve made a difference in the life of our founder and who symbolize the kind of impact MADI can make in the world! Keep reading to learn about how each style got it's name!

From Hayley, MADI’s founder:

I wanted the women buying MADI intimates to picture their mom, sister, best friend, etc. receiving the donated pair.  This was a CRUCIAL element in our development - not only is the name of our intimates line a woman's name (MADI - also spelling out Make a Difference Intimates) - but our styles are named after women as well.  I wanted the women receiving the donations to matter - to have a name.

These important women in my life even inspired the creative process behind designing the garment shapes.  I'm a woman - and I know what women wear and don't wear.  We stick to the styles we know and love - it's usually pretty black and white - but this answer certainly isn't the same across the board for every woman.  For example, some women only wear briefs. Some only wear thongs.  So, I designed clean-cut styles that women feel sexy in and feel comfortable wearing most often.  I wanted to steer clear from trendy styles and fabrics or loud colors that lose their flavor after a year or so.  MADI intimates are simple, luxurious basics that women constantly search their drawers for.  

During the design process, I pictured the loved one who inspired the style name.  I let the design flow from her personality - what makes her unique to the world?  How can an undergarment style embody the essence of her soul?

 

 

The Bonnie

First, I started with my Grandma, Bonnie.  (I call her Gaga, but that wouldn't make for a very nice panty name :) ! )

The brief reminded me of her - because it's CLASSIC.  Briefs will never go out of style - even young women find them most comfy.  When I think of my grandma I think of comfort, ever-present, and always in-style :).

About the style:

Buy The Bonnie HERE

 

Bonnie is well rounded in life and on your body.  High-rise fit with a retro look, flattering every womanly curve.

 

 

 

The Mimi

Mimi is what I call my other Grandma.  She's always around and has never let me down!  This makes me think of the bikini style.  It's modest in the back and doesn't ride - you know she will always stay with you :).

About the style:

Buy The Mimi HERE

Mimi's got your back in everyday life (literally) with full coverage bottoms and a chic, clean front. 

 

 

 

The Kyle

Kyle is my best friend since 4th grade.  She has a gender fluid name and is always up for anything.  The origin of the classic boyshort stemmed from boxers - a low-rise fit with a wide band.  We made it a cheekier cut though - why?  Because we're girls and want to feel sexy!

About the style:

Buy The Kyle HERE

Kyle is the girl-next-door.  Comfy coverage with a classic fit.

 

 

 

The Pamela

Pamela is my wonderful mom.  She is the most genuine person I know - but also is a major "boss chic" with sass.  This style is inspired by the Brazilian swimwear bikini style.  I drew this one up living in a small beach town in Florida.  It reminded me of my mom - sweet and cute all around but spicy when you least expect it!

About the style:

Buy The Pamela HERE

Pamela is sweet with a little bit of spice.  Feminine, soft and sexy with moderate bottom coverage.

 

 

 

The Diana

Diana is my other best friend from 4th grade.  She's outspoken and knows how to express exactly what she wants!  Her hair even inspired this style.  Her long, wavy locks remind me of the fluid, feminine floral pattern in the wide lace band.

About the style:

Buy The Diana HERE

Diana isn't afraid to be different – she radiates beauty and confidence.  Ultra cheeky bottom with a floral wide lace band

 

 

 

The Kaydee

The Kaydee was named after my college sorority, Kappa Delta.  I learned a lot of confidence in this life stage - I also had a lot of fun with my sisters, creating memories that will last forever.  This style (our now most popular style) was designed with confidence and flair.  This one is a guys' favorite! :)

About the style:

Buy The Kaydee HERE

The Kaydee is confident and sassy.  Cheeky bottom coverage with a flirty floral wide lace band.

 

 

 

The Sybil

The Sybil sleep top was named after my first cousin.  She's bold and loud, but is somehow soft and cuddly at the same time.  The design behind this top was to be a garment you never want to take off.  And this is literally a possibility as the top was designed to be worn for bed and outerwear over jeans or shorts!

About the style:

Buy The Sybil HERE

Sybil is bold and mysterious.  She's comfortable in her own skin.

MADI Apparel could not be more excited to announce the NEW Sybil Slouchy Sleep Top!

The Sybil Slouchy Sleep Top is silky and breezy to the touch.  You'll want to wear it to bed and out on the town!  AND YOU CAN! :).  This top is designed to cover a bra and serve as a bedtime comfort and outerwear staple.

We love these pictures by Rick Andersen, showing The Sybil Slouchy Sleep Top as a day time piece as well!

For all MADI intimates purchased, we donate a pair of underwear to a woman in repair.

The Sybil Sleep Top is part of our Bamboo Collection - Stretch Knit Viscose from Bamboo: 95% Bamboo 5% Rayon

Another awesome picture by Rick Andersen!

Our Bamboo Collection was created with comfort, quality and style in mind with the ultimate goal of appeasing the curves and tastes in uniting our unique women across the globe. 

Not only is viscose from bamboo organically sustainable, but the fabric is self-wicking, odor resistant and dries super fast! That's important for women receiving the undies donations who'll be able to wash and hang dry their pair overnight.

MADI's impactful intimates are MADE IN KANSAS CITY!

Our styles are named after individual women who’ve made a difference in the life of our founder and who symbolize the kind of impact MADI can make in the world!

Another great shot by Rick Andersen, of founder Hayley, and all of our awesome models!
