What makes us unique amongst thousands of brands in a $30 billion industry?
We are the only brand attempting to positively impact all areas of the industry.
For every intimate sold, a pair of underwear is donated
Underwear is the most under-donated item - so we donate it.
Quality, long-lasting fabrics
Our price tags aren't cheap, but our intimates are timeless and luxurious - therefore lowering waste. In fact, they're made from bamboo - the fastest growing plant in the world.
Cut and sewn in Kansas City
Our competitors moved their production abroad where unfair labor is almost always a risk - so we're bringing jobs back to Americans and ensuring fair labor right here.
Underwear is the most needed and under-donated item of clothing in the US.

Who Needs Underwear?
Underwear is a woman's most intimate article of clothing. Numerous organizations credit underwear as an assisting factor in helping a woman feel confident and comfortable during times of distress and healing.
Domestic Violence Shelters
Every day, thousands of women flee from domestic violence to a shelter, often with nothing but the clothes on their back. Most shelters routinely receive clothing and household goods donations but underwear is what they need most. New, clean underwear tops the Urgent Needs List of nearly every shelter.
When hurricanes and tornados strike (leaving thousands of Americans homeless), women need underwear. After Hurricane Sandy, Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro asked specifically for new underwear donations.
Hospital Rape Crisis Centers
Following traumatic sexual assault, victims undergo an invasive process of a forensic-medical exam to collect evidence. In most cases, these women are asked to surrender their clothing as part of evidence, and advocates provide clothing to these women to wear at home. It is very important for their healing process to have new, clean underwear.
Underwear drop-off in Fond-Parisian Haiti. In Haiti, we trekked by foot donating underwear to women in birth clinics, remote villages, young women learning about their menstrual cycle, etc.
