About this project
Chamois Panties are stylish, comfortable cycling underwear for women. They are great for spin class at the gym or a ride downtown. They have a foam insert sewn in for added comfort while riding. Unlike traditional riding shorts with a chamois, these panties will fit discreetly under your clothing. You can wear them under any pants, shorts, skirts, denim cutoffs, and even non-cycling specific work out clothes you already own. Urban cyclists and bike commuters can end up riding 20+ miles on any given day. Obviously spandex is not appropriate day-wear in the city, and ‘jorts’ are certainly not comfy long term on a saddle. Ouch! That’s precisely where Chamois Panties come into play. The foam insert alleviates the discomforts of riding while remaining discreet, allowing you to flaunt your own unique style. Help fund the Chamois Panties and make them a reality. Your contributions will go toward the manufacturing and distribution costs so that we can get these babies on the market!
The Brigitte is for women of all shapes and sizes. They are flattering and comfortable with a chamois insert thick enough to protect your precious lady parts from the pains of those longer urban rides. They are full coverage with a higher, '50s style rise in the back. They are 100% discreet under any type of skirt, pant, or short you desire to wear. In lieu of elastic is an attractive stretch lace band to avoid muffin top (no thanks, right?). Great for spin class and daily commutes.
The Bettie is for the ladies that want to feel a little sexier while they ride. The sheer mesh sides, and ruching on the back give these panties a feminine touch. You definitely won’t feel like you are wearing your grandmother’s bike undies (huh? Just go with it). Betties are lower rise in the front and show a little more cheek in the back. They are great for those cute low waisted pants or shorts but there’s still plenty of coverage so you don’t end up with plumbers' crack. The chamois insert is a thinner, triathlon style pad offering just that extra bit of comfort you need while you bike about the city. Great for shorter, lower impact rides.
Risks and challenges
Sometimes there are small snags in the production process that can cause setbacks. These can include anything from delays on chamois order fulfillment to printing issues with custom fabrics. We will do our due diligence to avoid unwelcome delays. Open communication with our backers is important to us and we plan to keep our progress updates accurate and informative!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As of today, we are still at the prototype stage. Until we have samples from the factory, we won't be able to provide detailed sizing information. I can tell you that I am planning on carrying sizes XS-XXL and XXXL if possible. I will post a detailed sizing chart as soon as I have the information.
After the project funding period has ended, I will be sending out a survey to all backers where he or she can select the desired size, shipping address etc.
