OUR STORY

Ampere was founded with two goals in mind: 1) create luxurious lingerie in a wide range of sizes and 2) improve the lingerie shopping experience. We launched our first collection in November 2012 and hope to expand our product line with YOUR HELP!

We are dedicated to providing the best:

HELP US LAUNCH COLLECTION II

We believe Ampere offers something truly unique and we need YOUR help to launch our second collection. Collection II will feature nude options to complement the black pieces in our first collection with the same high quality and wide range of sizes.

The Silk T-shirt Bra: 

Our luxurious version of an everyday classic. 100% silk on the inside and out, luxurious lace trim, fully adjustable straps, underwire construction and our classic Ampere band that will give you support without sacrificing comfort. 

The Perfect Strapless Bra: 

Finally, a strapless bra that's beautiful and stays up. 100% silk sewn cups with underwire gives you the perfect shape. Lace detail over our classic Ampere band lined with silicone grippers provides a romantic feel and comfortable fit. 

Matching Thong Panty:

The classic Ampere thong done with pretty nude lace and mesh detail. Width along the hips prevents the thong from digging in and a 100% cotton lining for comfort.

 Matching Lace Brief Panty:

Fluttering lace coverage provides an alternative to the thong that won't show through your clothing. 100% cotton lining for comfort.

We’ve finished our designs, sourced our fabrics and our factory is ready for production, but minimums are high, especially to produce 28 unique bra sizes. We can’t do it without your help. Back us today and not only will you receive an amazing Ampere reward but you’ll also be help us to continue to revolutionize the lingerie industry.

REWARDS:

Revolutionizing the lingerie industry comes with its perks! Our backers can choose from:

YOUR EXPERIENCE

All backers will receive the full Ampere Experience. Here is what we provide our current customers and what you can expect as a backer:

Home Try-Ons:

Our Home Try-on program guarantees a perfect fit. With any reward that includes a bra, you’ll receive the size you select and up to three additional sister sizes. Keep the size that fits and send back the ones that don't, free of charge. 

Note: Free shipping and the Home Try-On program are only available to U.S. backers. International backers, please consult our FAQ.

Quality:

We make sure that the finest materials and the best construction techniques go into every Ampere piece. 

Choice of Sizes:

Both Collection I and Collection II will be available in the sizes listed below, including our 28 unique bra sizes. You’ll receive an email with detailed instructions on how to select your size upon the successful conclusion of this Kickstarter campaign.

Don't see your size? It might be because you are currently wearing the wrong size, but you aren’t alone! Over 80% of American women are wearing the wrong bra size, so even if you fall outside of this chart, chances are that we have your CORRECT size. Choose the size closest to your current size and remember, we’ll send you multiple sizes to try on at home.

Free Matching Panty

All Ampere bras come with a free matching panty.

Price:

Our pieces are sold at luxury lingerie wholesale prices. We’ve cut out the middlemen by designing in-house, sourcing materials and manufacturing directly and selling online. Those savings are passed on to our customers allowing us to provide a truly luxurious product without having to charge outrageous prices. 

Free Shipping:

All U.S. backers will receive free shipping of their rewards. Additionally, U.S. backers who select a bra reward will also be able to return additional bra sizes for free.

Note: For international shipping, please consult our FAQs.

Risks and challenges

Our team is fully committed to making Ampere the best it can be. We've spent the last year launching our first collection, and have sourced the best materials and selected the most experienced partners in order to minimize potential risks. Our experience and success with our first collection will help make our second collection a reality.

However, like everything else on Kickstarter, Ampere is a work in progress. We may experience problems or delays due to our vendors, manufacturers, forwarders, shipping companies or customs.

We believe in transparency and communication, so our backers will be the first to know about any unplanned hurdles or delays. Since we've already done this once with our first collection we've tried to anticipate potential problems in advance so that we can avoid or resolve them.
