About this project
Comfortable & Cute Underwear
Why should boys have all the fun? We are tomboys and we love high end men's underwear because of the comfort, coverage, cute materials, clever styles, and comfortable waistband. Of course, as women we don't need the extra material in front! We've heard from many gals who steal their man's underwear or buy men's underwear from the store. Now we've created BoiBums underwear, women's underwear styled like men's briefs.
We've created patterns, samples, and are ready to start manufacturing our underwear. We've sourced vendors to manufacture (in the USA) our comfortable 95% cotton, 5% spandex color-blocked underwear so that women can have an alternative to skimpy, frilly, girly underwear. We ask for your support and investment so that we can produce this product.
What Makes Our Underwear Better?
BoiBums underwear are available in a wide range of sizes: size 5 (small) through size 10 (3x). BoiBums are made with soft fabric, providing comfort and the right amount of stretch. Our signature logo waistband is oh so soft against your skin. BoiBums have just the right coverage in all the right places. Our underwear not only looks great but it also feels great.
Four Kickstarter Color Combinations!
Why Do We Need Your Help?
We need your investment to help us fund our first production run. We will be manufacturing to our pattern specifications here in Seattle, WA so that we can oversee production and perform the quality assurance. It's important to us to manufacture in the US with quality fabrics that are soft, sustainable, and comfortable.
Our goal is to reach $20,000 to bring our BoiBums Apparel dreams to life. Please help us by pre-ordering your underwear today!
After we've sent out our Kickstarter rewards we will have produced additional inventory to market and sell to individuals via our website. In additional to direct sales we will approach specialty boutiques, stores and boutiques serving the LGBT/alternative market, and other retail outlets as a focus of our marketing efforts.
Our Rewards Are AWESOME!
All rewards include FREE SHIPPING to addresses in the USA. There is an extra shipping charge for those outside of the USA.

Risks and challenges
Manufacturing: We have simplified our project as much as possible to minimize missteps. But every project has risks. The major risk for BoiBums apparel, like many similar Kickstarter projects, is the potential to miss a production window and have a delivery delay. In the event of delays, we promise to keep you all in the loop with announcements. We are working with experienced apparel manufacturing experts to help make us successful and make you a happy customer.
Quality Assurance & Delivery: We take quality very seriously and will have a vigorous inspection process in place.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
