INVISIBELLY - Next Generation of Shapewear Leggings

£46,625

The most comfortable, versatile, high waisted compression leggings with built-in shape wear that are work appropriate. 

InvisiBelly combines the most advanced performance technology with old world belly reducing tradition to give you a fit that feels and looks good at the gym or at the office.  

 
        
                        
[We obsessed over detail even the ones you can’t see]
[We obsessed over detail even the ones you can’t see]

Inspired by old world belly wrapping tradition (an Ayurvedic postpartum ritual used to create lower chakra balance, assist in reducing swelling while slimming the belly), InvisiBelly are hands down the best leggings that provide shaping at the belly…and one inch up.

Most leggings stop at the bellybutton creating muffin top. InvisiBelly takes the waist up one more inch so that your entire torso - starting at the lower belly - is smooth, toned and held in without skin bunching or spilling over. You’ll get an immediate boost in confidence so you can go to the gym, and run around town in comfort without being self conscious or hiding behind oversized clothes. Imagine looking and feeling your absolute best wearing InvisiBelly leggings whether you’re doing lunches or crunches.

I’ve addressed one of the biggest problems with most leggings, a waistline that slips. A silicone gel waistband prevents you from having to hitch up your leggings every time you move. It’s comfortable so you won’t experience digging, cutting or rolling at your waistline. Finally, you can be confident your leggings are staying put!

Ever wanted to slip on a new pair of leggings without having to wear a long top or sweater because the rear is too sheer? Me too! That’s why I sourced substantial, durable,100% opaque yarns so that your day-of-the-week panties don’t peek through and you won’t have to cover your bum, unless you want to.

 Made of 90% polyamide and 10% elastane InvisiBelly leggings are durable and give you a medium compression fit for a toned look that eliminates muffin top. 360 degree compression support also means they reduce soreness and improve circulation - cutting down muscle fatigue - while fully supporting your belly area. And yes, they’re safe and comfortable to wear postpartum

Trends come and go but your InvisiBelly leggings will become a wardrobe staple. Whether you’re a 9-5 professional, a new mum, or grandmother you can dress your leggings up or down. They’ll work with your active lifestyle 365 days of the year, from season to season.

InvisiBelly retains its shape and moulds to your body, even if you drop a dress size, saving you from replacing your leggings if your weight fluctuates. And, because you’ll have a medium compression fit, you won’t feel like a stuffed sausage. I’ve intentionally designed InvisiBelly leggings for comfort and longevity.

With InvisiBelly leggings, you’ll have a smooth, seamless fit and form. There’s no tugging involved (they’re not thick tights pretending to be leggings) making them effortless to slip on, with no seams to line up in strange and unusual places. And the construction is snag, hole and run-proof.

Built in anti-microbial technology helps fight odor causing bacteria so your leggings stay fresh and clean longer.

 You’ll feel dry and comfortable all day with moisture wicking, a defense mechanism that draws moisture away from your body.

                             

 Effortlessly transition between work, indoor or outdoor play like crawling on the floor with your toddler, yoga, cycling, or enjoying a night out with friends. InvisiBelly are your must pack, must wear, must have leggings that adapt to the demands of your busiest days at home or on the go.

 *Made in Portugal

I created InvisiBelly to revolutionize the leggings market combining the best of athletic technology with shaping details that double as a garment you can wear to work. I also wanted to dispel the myth that leggings can’t be worn outside the gym. InvisiBelly is designed in classic styles you can wear to work or to workout. My in-house stylist, a legend in her field, was so impressed with the details and design she couldn’t help but say yes to joining the team.

                             

We believe that when a woman feels beautiful, she feels empowered to make better choices. Choices that help her live an active, healthy and mindful life. Choices that help her redefine beauty as…

  • rainbow stripes of varied shapes and sizes because covergirl standards are limiting. 
  • worth measured by the curves of her heart not the shape of her waistline. 
  • loving her imperfections because beauty is imperfect. 
  • celebrating every stage of womanhood and every size of woman 24/7, 365. 

At InvisiBelly we want to champion a new standard of beauty that’s low on trends and high on individuality. Our leggings are designed to give women more time and freedom to explore their beautiful edges in comfort and style.

We have TWO colour options available, black and blue

Select the available reward tier you would like to pledge on the right side of the page or click here. Each backer may only make one pledge.

2. Payment:

Enter your payment information. Your payment will not be charged until the very end of this campaign (July, 2018)

3. Size, Color & Shipping Information:

Don’t worry about that yet! You will get to select your Size, Colour choice and submit your Shipping at the very end of this campaign (July 2018).

You’ll find that the leggings feel better the more you wear them because they mould to your body. When ordering, choose your true size. If you expect your weight to drop, order one size down. If you’re in between sizes, I recommend you size down. If you are not sure to go a size up or down, I would recommend a size down as the fabric stretches and you will get the full effect of the shapewear compression around your stomach and abdomen area.

 ***Also each of the waist has a good stretch to it, so for example, the size XS/S stretches to 69cm***

InvisiBelly was born from an aha moment I had while researching belly wrapping when I was pregnant with my second child. Every part of the process since that moment has been a collaborative effort. From the models in the video and still photos, videographers, photographers, friends and family (my product testers), and my social media tribes, everyone has played a part in the development of these leggings. It made sense to use a community platform, like Kickstarter, to get this product launched and onto legs (and bellies).

As a new brand, I need to guarantee production minimums. With your help, this campaign will fund our first production run and packaging costs for 1000 units because every woman should own leggings that look like a work day and feel like a weekend. The design is ready to go. The manufacturer is proven, vetted and is waiting for my order. All I need is your support.

We have spent nearly 2 years developing prototypes and identifying a reliable factory to manufacture our product. After years of visiting factories and developing prototypes, we have finalised our prototype and found a reliable factory in Portugal that subscribes to sustainable practices. We are ready to introduce Invisibelly to the world. Below are the prototype evolution to arrive at our final design.

                             

I'm a busy entrepreneur, wife and mother.

When I had my first child I struggled to lose the baby weight. Healing from my pregnancy was a slow two-year process and throughout, my mum coaxed me to consider the age-old Asian belly wrapping ritual she learned from her mother-in-law, my grandma Leela. I balked! After losing most of my baby weight, the hard way, I became pregnant with my second child. This time, I vowed to take better care of myself and recover more quickly. I remembered what mum said about belly wrapping and began my research.

My aha moment came when I thought, why not merge belly wrapping with the compression technology in athletic wear to create a legging for EVERYDAY USE? I tested what I could find on the market and while the compression mimicked Asian belly wrapping, I knew I could design a better product. And so I created my wish list:

Risks and challenges

As the former founder of Oscar and Olivia - a childrenswear company - and owner of Poppy Organics, I’m familiar with manufacturing, distribution and on-time delivery processes. I’ve hand selected a manufacturer that is as conscientious and professionally ethical as I am. They excel at using the finest material and technical details. Our UK warehouse is prepared to package and ship orders as efficiently and quickly as possible barring any unpredictable acts of nature. I’ve also tested the product and refined the prototypes to fit, wear and look beautiful on the body. I wear these leggings myself and am confident you will love them as much as I do.

Making sure you order your right, best size is the biggest potential challenge. I’ve tested the sizing on a variety of bodies and worked closely with our in-house stylist to provide the most accurate sizing options. Because this is our first production, we may sell out of your size so please refer to the sizing guide. If you’re unhappy with the size of your leggings, and if we still have your size in stock, I’m happy to arrange for an exchange.

You’ll find that the leggings feel better the more you wear them because they mould to your body. When ordering, choose your true size. If you expect your weight to drop, order one size down. If you’re in between sizes, I recommend you size down.
