Wow....here we are!

Having fun after the photo shoot.
Having fun after the photo shoot.

When I created Clothing with a Kiss, LLC my intention was to produce fun and sexy lingerie for breast cancer survivors to restore their passion and confidence.  Come be a part of this incredible journey.  My name is Heather Joie and I am a breast cancer survivor.

The women in these photos are all breast cancer survivors.  They were nervous about modeling the lingerie because of their scars from lumpectomies and mastectomies, and dealing with their body image issues.  It was unbelievable to see the transformation once they were wearing Clothing with a Kiss, LLC lingerie.  The video speaks for itself.  They are not alone.  I have met countless breast cancer survivors who told me that they no longer feel desirable for their partner; that they get undressed in the dark, and no longer wear sexy lingerie because they are unable to find any.

This is where you come in.  Clothing with a Kiss, LLC is ready to go to the next level.  In the past seven months I have attended apparel trade shows, visited garment districts, met with suppliers, sourced products, and most importantly produced a small quantity of the first collection.

Your support will enable us to manufacture the five designs in greater quantities for sale in retail outlets and online.  All lingerie is proudly Made in the USA.

$5,000 will get us...

*  Purchase additional fabric and supplies.

*  Pay manufacturer to cut and sew lingerie.

If we get more than $5,000...

We will produce more lingerie.

Risks and challenges

From day one of starting this business, I have been extremely organized, detail-oriented, with excellent follow-through. These are important qualities for taking a start-up business to the next level. The apparel business is new for me, and I was able to go from an idea to actual production within six months. This type of venture would normally take a year or longer. My dedicated and passion shows up in all that I do for Clothing with a Kiss, LLC.

My background as a social worker running programs for abused children, combined with my experience in sales & marketing in the hospitality industry balances me well in the business world. I am well connected in my community and have lived here for over 10 years. Being a cancer survivor enables me to understand my market.
