Misty’s story of resilience and elegance inspired us to create intricately lacey lounge fit bras that reflect her spirit and embody comfort with style.

Misty’s journey into the world of ballet wasn't conventional. Starting ballet at the age of 13, she faced obstacles which could deter even the most determined.  But her passion for dance, coupled with her incredible talent, propelled her forward. She broke stereotypes and redefined beauty and strength in the industry.

In 2015, Copeland made history by becoming the first African American female principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre. Her promotion was a groundbreaking moment for diversity and representation in ballet, inspiring generations of dancers to pursue their dreams regardless of race or background.

Misty Copeland's authenticity and advocacy have made her an icon beyond the stage. She speaks about body image, race, and inclusivity in the dance world, advocating for change and inspiring others to embrace their uniqueness.

and how did she influence our design?...

Misty's dedication to shattering barriers and embracing individuality motivated us to challenge the common misconception that bras are uncomfortable. We set out to create a lounge fit bra with a high apex strap , to give our customers the comfort of a bralette but the support of a bra!

Just as Misty Copeland defied expectations in the ballet world, we aim to defy expectations in the lingerie world.

 Our Misty bra is crafted to make every individual feel comfortable, confident, and empowered, just like the remarkable woman who inspired it.

 with love,
