Read excerpts from her interview below:
On why she decided to enter the intimate apparel market: Somehow it seems like whenever you have a child through C-section, it’s harder for you to heal and get your snap back. Anytime you have a tummy tuck or c-section, your doctor would suggest you use body shapewear. The new phase and demand [of body shapewear] are needed for people [following] surgery. That was always the case anyway.
On Slim Girl Shapewear: You will always need body shapewear. [Before shapewear] I always kind of had a knowing about girdles. [And I even] tried some for myself. Everyone owns a couple of body shapers, there is a reason [body shapewear and cinchers] caught on. It’s a no brainer. Body shapewear will always be a must.
