Let's go back to the days when I used to work over 16 hours at a company. After weeks of sitting for 16 hours a day at my accounting firm, I couldn't take it any more. I grabbed a pair of office scissors, went into the bathroom and cut two big holes behind the back pocket area of my jeans.
The relief I felt that day made me realize how tight my jeans were and how much discomfort my body had been putting up with. The so-called size fit me, but my butt never felt like it could breathe. The idea for a new kind of jeans was born.
After I cut out the inside fabric, I couldn't keep my phone or anything else in my back pocket. So I started to add mesh or sticking fabric, but it was pretty weak and more importantly, didn't add any lift to my butt! Finally I landed on yoga pant fabric. Stretchy, expandable, very very comfortable, and it made my butt look amazing! Exactly what we deserve.
I had been adding waist strings to every pair of pants I'd bought for years, and thought other women might need this too! An added feature to reduce the gap that most pants have in the hip area.
Also, designing an entirely new pattern of jeans wasn't easy but the inspiration came from a Bra. Oh my goodness! We're all shaped differently but one thing is for sure, we shouldn't have to fit into our jeans, they should mould to our bodies. The #BraJeans pattern was born; reducing fabric in just the right areas to combat the gap and baggy thigh problem that comes with jeans that fit right at the hip. The amazing thing about this was that I was able to reduce fabric under the butt area to prevent jeans from sliding down when we walk or run!
Combining these three unique features, the BraJeans was finally ready to be tested by women of diverse shapes and sizes. Some with a curvy pattern and some with a straight pattern. They all confirmed that they'd never experienced a fit quit like this one. I am always excited to see the surprised and satisfied look on customers' faces when they realize their jeans fit perfectly!
I'm now working on developing jeans that combat chub rub. On average, American women buy 7 pairs of jeans every year. How many do we throw way because they tear in the thigh area? Solving this problem will increase the life of our jeans and also reduce clothing waste that ends up in landfills.
