This is not business usual. Truthfully it never has been for us.
We are a female founded company that set out to make high quality underwear that is good for you and the world around you. Our mission was and still is to create a healthy and thriving environment for all vulvas and their owners – from microbiome, to humankind, to planet Earth. Now more than ever, we feel it is important to be clear that we support all people in their right to having access to reproductive health options and the legal right to make these choices for themselves.
Moving forward, for every pair of underwear sold we will donate a dollar to the National Network of Abortion Funds. As new small business owners, we want to do what we can in our own small way to contribute to this cause economically, in addition to education and advocacy.
The overturning of Roe v. Wade on Friday and the social and racial justice movements over the past years have deeply impacted us as people and as a company. We intend to continue to use our voice and profits to support these causes.

The National Network of Abortion Funds builds power with members to remove financial and logistical barriers to abortion access by centering people who have abortions and organizing at the intersections of racial, economic, and reproductive justice.
Abortion funds are uniquely powerful because we work together at local, regional, national, and international levels. We’re a network of local, autonomous organizations that fund abortion and build power to fight for cultural and political change. Together, abortion funds form a network of over 90 grassroots organizations that directly support people to get the abortions they want and need. From July 2019 to June 2020, abortion funds were able to help 81,692 people— but that’s only 35% of the 229,510 calls our network received that year. Abortion funds are autonomous in their structures and policies. Our collective power as a network is rooted in community connections and local expertise. Abortion funds are on the forefront of abortion access in our communities, and we work with abortion seekers directly to help them get through obstacles in a wide range of cultural and political environments.
