Julie Sygiel reinvented the period panty with her company Dear Kate. Cristen and Caroline chat with this startup STEM major-turned-underwear entrepreneur about everything everything from venture capital to feminist dads and how Dear Kate is hoping to disrupt the lingerie industry.
Behold! Dear Kate period panties of the future.
Recognizing that most lingerie cannot keep up with a woman's body, chemical engineer Julie Sygiel knew there had to be a better alternative to "period panties" and embarrassing mishaps. So she hit the lab and developed the silky-soft, patent-pending fabric behind each pair of Dear Kates. Made in NYC, each pair is wicking, stain releasing, and leak-resistant-preparing you for everything from cardio to just another day with aunt flo.
Our mission is to give women the confidence to do anything by equipping them with apparel that's up for the challenge.
