Undies change lives.
Whether its someone experiencing a proper bra fitting, a new mom discovering the perfect nursing cami, or a breast cancer survivor who continues her recovery thanks to a new mastectomy bra, great lingerie is powerful.
And for the designers and entrepreneurs who make intimate apparel their business, lingerie also transforms their lives.

At CURVENEWYORK this summer, we met with designers who said starting their businesses enriched their lives.
Silent Arrow founder Kelly Barrett, for example, said working on her brand became a journey in self-(re)discovery.
“Creating [Silent Arrow] was a massive personal renaissance for me. I slowly started to remember who I was,” said Kelly at the show.

TuTu cofounder Nofar Duchovny echoed these sentiments saying the moment she started designing her collection, she felt a sense of love and nostalgia. “It made me feel the same again.” she said.
Launching TuTu also created the opportunity for Nofar’s sister, Shiran, to work alongside her handling the business side of the brand.
“It’s something we both love.” said Shiran.

“I want my customers to experience love at first sight.” – Flora Backer.
Amour was also cited as the muse behind many collections. Rya Collection founder Flora Backer said she creates with the intention of having a customer experience “love at first sight” upon gazing at her work.
