Buying underwear for tween + teen girls can be a seriously stressful experience. And I’m not just talking about your end of the deal as a parent or guardian, I’m talking about the sweet girls you’re taking shopping.
Ladies, do you remember your first experience buying a bra? I was equally stoked and horrified to get my first bra, and the whole experience is a hazy memory of hormones and tears. It was even worse when I went to school the next day and every boy in the 5th grade asked me about my over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder. When they weren’t busy snapping my bra strap. I think the first boy I slapped was, in fact, a boy from my geography class who had done just that. It was pretty horrifying, and I was a tough girl.
But, the great thing about the world is that now that we have the blessed Interwebz, (saints be praised) we as women can connect to people across the globe and find wonderful humans who are striving to make our experience on this earth a little easier.
One of those humans is Melissa Ovard, Founder + CEO of a company called Girl Lux which makes comfortable bras and underwear for girls of (almost) every shade of the rainbow. The bras are named after “adjectives that are synonymous with ‘light’.” Bras without uncomfortable snaps, bras that match skin color, and comfortable girl shorts (not boy shorts!). The creme de la creme of Girl Lux products though, is a pair of soft, panty-line-free underwear called the Pocket Pantie™ with a tiny little pocket in the back to discreetly hold a panty liner.
Good heavens, I can’t even tell you how much this underwear would’ve saved my life as a teenage girl. I would’ve been saved from a fair amount of anxiety in my young life if these had been around.
From her lips to your ears.
Girl Lux is holding a Kickstarter campaign, which closes on November 2, 2014, so go get in on that business, ASAP-like.
