We “ADORE” what we do!
We are more than just a team: we’re a community of energetic, goal-oriented, creative thinkers and doers. We’re dedicated to empowering women, starting with changing the way women think about and shop for lingerie. We do this by following our mission to provide facts, challenging each other to grow and innovate, minding the details, and caring strongly for each other and what we do.
We’re eccentric but focused; free spirited, but motivated; purpose driven, but fun; unpretentious, but always pushing ourselves to perform exceptionally. Our rapid growth is a testament to these qualities paired with our constantly nurtured environment of innovation, creativity, and restlessness.
