      Shannon! I'm so sorry! I thought that I fulfilled all of the orders...they were late, but I must have missed yours. I extremely apologize. Please let me send you your order ASAP. Do you know what it was? Again, I'm so sorry and I'd like to make it right. :) shelton@theshemie.com

      I placed an order last year and never received anything. Honestly I had forgotten about it until I came across another product that is using Kickstarter and I have to say I'm Leary about ordering.

      Hi Shelton,
      First, Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
      I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Shemie, hope it is the right size, but with the spring/summer weather, and some low-cut tank dresses, I've been thinking I should have ordered the white instead of the buff color. Will there be any way to order additional or even change my mind at this point?? I'm sure I could use both colors.
      Thanks :)

      Hi Shelton, After a long anticipated wait my Shemie arrived today. I was so excited to try it on, only to discover it's too small. How do I go about exchanging it for the larger size?

      Thank you for getting back to me,

      Hi Jennifer! I'm sending out an update tonight so thank you for reaching out! They are being sewn right now and I'm praying that they will be on schedule to be completed by the end of next week and shipped out immediately. It is a little later than expected, but I'm pushing and pushing them! Wow...this has been the most challenging journey of my life, but I feel so blessed to have the support of my backers and to get a perfect product out the everyone very, very soon! I'll post an update with pictures tonight! Thanks again honey! xoxo

    10. Jennifer Burns Wess on April 23, 2013

      Hi Shelton- I was wondering if you have an update for those of us waiting on pins & needles for our Shemies lol! The last one said that they were hopefully shipping mid-to-late April. So...maybe? I'm crossing my fingers! Thanks, Jen

    11. Ana Maria Muñoz on March 7, 2013

      Hi Shelton, just read your latest update about finding a new manufacturer in LA that you are happy with - yay! I'm currently in the middle of sourcing my own manufacturing for a product I designed so I feel your pain!!! No worries at all about us backers waiting for our Shemies to arrive, they will be worth it!

      I agree. I am tired of too short, low cut, and see through clothing. I am so glad that I backed this project.

      Ok, so I know I should not be SO EXCITED about "underpinnings". However, I literally think of my soon to arrive Shemies each morning as I dress. Today in particular I am wearing one of those "squish-you-in" slips and I am not happy! HA! Looking forward to my delivery, soon to come! WoooHooooo!

    15. Shelton Wilder Creator on December 2, 2012

      It's SHEMIE TIME!! Yeah y'all! I'm so elated and couldn't have done it without you! I will be sending you an email "survey" to collect your order on Sunday, Dec. 2. I'm sending this out and hope to collect the orders by Dec. 6th so they can be manufactured and delivered by the end of January, as promised! THANK YOU TONS AND TONS!! xoxoxoxoxo

      Hey Shelton! I worked with your brother, Beau, one summer and he told me all about the shemmie! I ordered the meet the parents and the paparazzi protector for myself plus a meet the parents for my mom! Can't wait to get my shemmies -- I know you are going to meet your goal!

      Shelton, I am one of Brooke's friends and that alone is enough for me to want to support you in some small way! I just watched your video on Shark Tank and your authenticity was SO endearing! I'm about to forward this on to some friends that would love the Shemie as well! Best of luck!!!

      Kristina Lewis on November 3, 2012

      Hey there--Just watched Shark Tank, and as a fellow North Carolinian I'm thrilled you're manufacturing them in our beautiful state. The product by itself sounds awesome, but it's the support of NC jobs that just inspired me to look you up and make a pledge (btw, this is the first time I've ever pledged on a site like Kickstarter before!). Can't wait to try my Shemie when you meet your goal!!

    23. Shelton Wilder Creator on November 2, 2012

      Thank you all for the comments and support! We are getting closer!! Can't give up now!! I promise you will LOVE the Shemies! I couldn't get dressed with out them! XOXO

      Hi, I just ordered myself a paparazzi. It did not have anywhere for me to select color or size. I am so excited for you, and I think this is a fabulous idea!! I will be ordering some for my daughter also. Thank you for bringing this product to us.

      HI Shelton,
      saw you on the shark tank,and even me being a guy, i totally got it. It is funny, because while i was watching, i thought then and there that Kickstarter would be a great platform for you, and what do you know, here you are :)... I am a guy, so i personally don't have a need for a paparazzi protector, but i just wanted to show a little support. It was very touching to see you put it all out there on national tv, so all the best... I am sure you will do great...

    26. Shelton Wilder Creator on October 30, 2012

      Hello friends! I sent you both emails, Yvonne and Natasha! I've gotten so many inquiries from investors and it just warms my heart to get such beautiful feedback from you beautiful women and a few great guys (buying for wives and girlfriends) Honestly I didn't know what to expect after Shark Tank aired, I was scared to be so exposed and vulnerable, but this is beyond my wildest dreams...I won't give up!! Thank you all...I'm beyond grateful! xoxo

      Oops I meant Shark Tank. We have a similar program here in Canada called Dragons Den with Kevin O'Leary. Hence, my typo.

      Yvonne Ellis on October 30, 2012

      Hi Shelton absolutely loved you on dragons den. Your product is great. The men on the panel didn't get what you were offering. I know a good thing when I see it. You showed grace under pressure and left with your head held high. Loved your video intro on kick start as well...fun. Can't wait to get my meet the parents and paparazzi protector. I'm sure you'll be successful. You've done it before so you know the formula. All you need is a start.

    29. Natasha Ashmore Gwilt on October 29, 2012

      Are you considering small business investments to make up for a lack of investment from Shark Tank? Would possibly be interested, depending on the amount of investment needed, if it's in exchange for profits or equity.

    30. Shelton Wilder Creator on October 28, 2012

      I'm unbelievably grateful! Thank you for seeing my vision!! Seriously, I wear one everyday at all times....well...not in the shower..not a Shower Shemie ;) Thank you TONS AND TONS!!! xoxoox

    31. Laresa Boyle on October 28, 2012

      I just watched Shark Tank from Friday and love your product as well. I really thought they would give you a deal, but its going to happen without the sharks. I wish you the best of luck and I can't wait to get my shemie.

      I too just saw you on Shark Tank and loved you AND your Shemie's!! I'm getting two of them...cuz I'm no dummy and I know a good thing when I see it!!!
      thanks and can't wait for you to make goal so I can Shimmy into my Shemie!

    34. Shelton Wilder Creator on October 27, 2012

      Thanks so much Natasha!! :) I feel the same way!! I just adore you for ordering! Hope you can spread the word! xoxo

    35. Natasha Ashmore Gwilt on October 27, 2012

      I'm a huge layering person, so when I saw the Shemie on Shark Tank, I thought how can any girl not want to have this? I ordered one, and excited for you Shelton. Best of luck to you!

    36. Shelton Wilder Creator on October 27, 2012

      WOW!! I'm SO OVERWHELMED with the amazing response so far!!! Thank you dearly for all of y'all's support!! Hello, Kmar...I've worn it for years and never had a problem...I hope you will love it! xoxoxo THIS IS SO EXCITING!!! :)

    37. Laurel LaFlamme on October 27, 2012

      Of course, we saw ya' on Shark Tank and ran right over to get me a Shemie! We're so proud of you.

      The fabric is the *shizzle* -- I adore the rayon /spandex blend; it lasts forever and it's so comfy.

      I'd like to answer @Kmar in the comment thread below. When it's time to visit the facilities, you're going to pull your Shemie up and down just like you're wearing a jumper. It's the same way they get in & outta various "form fitters" or any other jumpsuit apparatus.

      Here's the thing: When you're out and about town, how many times do you actually have to go "potty" anyway? Not much, right!

      No worries. Unless it has a way I don't know about yet, I'd say get The Shemie already and have no worries. It slips off easily; unlike Spanx. Until recently, Spanx had to come all the way down, now they have a slit for easy access.

      On this type of comfy material, the ease in which is slips on & off negates it needing and secret slit for... well, you know.

      I hope that helped answer your question. Now go order your Shemie!
