About this project
It is our mission to empower women who need extra help to get in and out of clothes.
Whether you have chronic back pain, suffer from mobility issues, or just want a on the go panty, know that this is the solution for you! Changing your panties when you have a physical constraint can be an extremely daunting, and at times embarrassing task. Slick Chicks solves this problem and gives women their confidence back.
There are countless options when it comes to your unmentionables, but none of them offer an effortless solution. Slick Chicks provides a convenient, functional, and attractive panty solution for every woman. By supporting our campaign, you’re joining our mission to empower women everywhere and at every capacity.
Being a staple in every woman's wardrobe, the act of putting on underwear and taking them off has been the same, until now. Slick Chicks is more than your average pair of panties, more than just underwear, it's a solution for women designed by a woman. Whether it’s a woman on the go, someone who is physically impaired and struggles with the notions of pulling off her underwear, a mom who has a few moments to herself to quickly change, or someone who just wants the simplicity of an effortless panty, Slick Chicks is here to empower YOU!
So How Does it Work?
Slick Chicks turned the frustration with changing panties into a more convenient, functional and simple option through our hook and eye fastener design. With the hook and eye fastener on either side of the waistband, Slick Chicks allows you to slip them on and off without ever lifting a foot. Simply unhook the fasteners standing, sitting or laying down and change into a fresh pair!
Whether you’re on the run or have physical constraints that make getting dressed a challenge, we are here to empower you.
For all the Mommas:Motherhood is beautiful and with that beauty comes struggle. Backaches, weight change, struggling to bend and move all adds up (not to mention a simple sneeze or a laugh might trigger "stress leakage"). Slick Chicks offers an easy way to change in and out of your panties so you can live your life without worrying about what an allergy or a joke might do to you!
Listen to Jess's story below as Slick Chicks helped empower her through her time in the ICU;
"I was able to change my panties on my own, without help... With the clips on the side I was able to remove them and put them on without even getting out of bed. It really just made me feel so much better and empowered me to want to fight and push through... The medical professionals that I encounter all the time are amazed at Slick Chicks in their functional design for someone who could use an extra hand."
They say that necessity is the mother of invention and this certainly proved itself true for Slick Chicks Founder and Designer, Helya Mohammadian. Nearly all women, herself included, have found themselves in similar predicaments. Whether it was after an intense sweat session, a time-of-the-month mishap or just needed to freshen up--we've all been there.
“After my initial launch of Slick Chicks I received an email from a woman who had limited mobility who wanted to buy a pair of Slick Chicks panties in a size XLL. At first, I was manufacturing limited sizes and told her that I didn’t have them yet in size XLL but as soon as I did I would send her some. Her request made me realize that the innovative product I had created for women to have a convenient way to change their panties, also had a use as adaptable clothing for people with disabilities. Unfortunately, by the time I manufactured and sent the XXL garment to this woman, she had succumbed to cancer. But her daughter wrote to me and told me the most inspiring story. She said her mother was so excited that my product was on its way to her that she worked harder in physical therapy to keep her mobility so that she would be able to change her own undergarments and regain that dignity. While I am so sad that she never got that chance, the fact that Slick Chicks empowered her so much, erased any doubts I had about my product.” – Helya Mohammadian is the founder of Slick Chicks.

IN THE PRESS:
Comfort is key in Slick Chicks! With a breathable 100% cotton lining, Slick Chicks’ patent-pending panties are knit from the softest nylon/spandex blends, giving a silky feel against the body. Sacred to any woman, a combination of anti-leak, anti-microbial and moisture-wicking technology aims to promote a long-lasting feeling of freshness.
Having the perfect amount of stretch, our hook & eye fasteners are soft to the touch; when you move, they move with you! This multi-directional stretch helps to keep Slick Chicks in place, even for intense workouts. Providing all day comfort, the padding on the back of the hook and eye fasteners feels like a second skin.
Soft, stretch fabric with just the right amount of coverage makes Slick Chicks the go-to panty for every day comfort and a sleek, smooth feel.
- Bikini: Classic, medium-rise bottom that hugs the body with just the right stretch.
- Thong: Comfy low-rise thong designed with a cheeky tanga back.
- Boyshort: Combination of comfort and functionality with a feminine silhouette and full rear coverage.
- NEW! High-Waist Brief: If we make 5k above our goal (20k), we can produce our high rise brief with added rear coverage.
Each style is available in your choice of black, white, or beige, and in sizes ranging from XS-XXL.

"From the minute the silkiness of Slick Chicks hit my skin I knew they were keepers. What sealed the deal for me is the comfort and ease of use. Unfortunately, I recently spent an extended stay in the hospital where thank god I had my Slick Chicks. Not only are they amazing comfortable ( don't know if I got that point across yet...) but every staff member there was amazed by them. The fact that I was unable to stand, I could still change my panties, laying in bed. Every staff member commented on how amazing they were and how smart! I have to agree I am a Slick Chick for life. No other undies for me. You will never regret this purchase! I love Slick Chicks!"- Jess
"From the moment I put on these undies I fell in love! Comfy, feel like skin, move easily with my movements..and they sit just right on my pregnant belly. It's perfect for an expecting mom because you don't have to bend over to put these on! I love them!!!!"- Rana
"I absolutely love Slick Chicks. Have been wearing them since I saw the unique product on the market and decided to try it. I started wearing Slick Chicks during exercises. Soon I realized that no other undies were able to provide that weightless and dry feeling during sweaty workouts. Be it cycling, bikram yoga or jogging, I always feel comfortable. I no longer limit myself to wearing this awesome product to the gym only. It has became one of my wardrobe essentials. During my 8 hour work day on my feet I no longer need to adjust my underwear or worry about a thing. If you are an active person and like to stay comfortable throughout your daily activities, try wearing Slick Chicks. You will love it too!"- Julia
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP:
We have our production team lined up and ready to go, but as a start-up we need to guarantee certain production minimums. We are asking for your help to raise $15,000 to be used towards raw materials, production, and shipping costs. By taking part in this campaign you will help us fund Slick Chicks’ first big production run. In addition your support will:
- Help us make sure we produce the styles of panties that you want us to make. You're the customer so we’re here to please YOU and listen to what you want!
- Help us meet the Minimum Order Requirements for Colors and Sizes by our Manufacturer. To produce our panties in more colors and sizes will require significant resources. So remember, every order counts!
- Help us go from a small team to adding one or two extra hands!
- Help us continue to develop new products, including a men's line (Seriously)!
SHARE OUR STORY:
We have been proudly self-funding Slick Chicks from the start, but with your help we can take it to another level! And even if you can't contribute financially, share our story with your friends and family ;)

Risks and challenges
We've spent countless hours working with our partners to lower as many risks as possible; however, we know there can still be speed bumps along the way. We ensure that we will always share updates about any challenges we may face, including:
Ship date: We are working with our production team and are confident that we'll ship by the estimated date. We've even tacked on some extra time just in case.
Sizing: We have wear tested the product on over 50 women of all different sizes. But if you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, we want to make it right. Simply let us know what happened and we will happily exchange the underwear for a different size, free of charge (shipping charges apply for international orders).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
