While I was shopping for professional clothing to wear to my new position at a law firm, the struggle became real as I found out everything was stiff, shapeless, uncomfortable, and pocketless. I just wanted to wear my comfy leggings around the office yet still look professional and sleek! My next thought: it's 2018; why don’t we modern women have professional clothing that fulfills our need for comfort, class, and practicality? My criteria seemed so simple, yet no pants made the cut. I wanted pockets that were intuitively positioned with enough stretch to hold my plus-sized cell phone and other necessities. I wanted pockets that zipped shut to stop my belongings from falling out every time I sat down or exercised. I wanted breathable fabric that flattered my shape while letting me feel comfortable and look professional. My shopping experience proved to me that if I wanted professional pants done right, I was going to have to do it myself....
Hence Feminine Figures was born! I started off designing my ideal professional look with a slacks/leggings hybrid. Our Professionally Pocketed pair are made from a one-of-a-kind custom created design and a high-density fabric blend that is comfortable and classy.
They are thick enough to be completely opaque and modest for an office environment while still feeling light and flexible enough to lounge in. I wear my own pair to my law office position all of the time and my co-workers are always asking me where I got them! I wanted to make them available to all of us working women in the offices and in the home, we all deserve to LOOK and FEEL classy, comfortable, and confident!
Professionally Pocketed are fit for a work environment as well as flexible and breathable for various exercise and leisure activities. They keep their opaque qualities through various stretches and workouts, are durable to last, and are made with quick dry fabrics that promote oxygen flow. You can go from the office, to the park, and home to dinner, all in the same pair of classy comfort. Your closet space will thank you! Your belongings for each activity will be kept safe and secure in the zippered pockets on each outer thigh. The pockets are strategically placed to be weightless and convenient for easy access and comfort throughout any activity.
I instantly fell in love with my Professionally Pocketed design so I decided to continue! I created two more additions-Exercise Envy and Comfort Cotton. Our Exercise Envy is made with a similar Nylon/Spandex blend but with a medium density. This density creates more oxygen flow, has moisture wick technology, and a 4-way stretch to stay put through all of your movement and exercise. They are durable and also PET HAIR RESISTANT! That's right-you read correctly! Our new fabric blend helps you to keep some of your fluffy friends by your side and not weaved into it.
Our Comfort Cotton are so soft you'll want to sleep in them! They are stretchy, high-waisted, and smooth smooth smooth. All of our designs have pockets placed on the outer thighs so when you sit down, you aren't having to move your belongings back and forth between front and back pockets. They are so convenient and comfortable you'll forget you even have your phone/chapstick/keys safely with you!
I am so proud of this design not only for the comfort and convenience but for the many other reasons my closest friends and family have shared with me of how modern women's clothing designs need to improve. My best friend is a runner and wants somewhere she can safely keep her ipod, phone, and pepper-spray for safety. My cousin has diabetes, and wants her pants to have a pocket to carry her insulin pump that makes her feel comfortable and confident. I know I'm not the only women who is tired of lugging around a purse just to carry my credit card, keys, and phone. No more phones in your bras ladies. No more losing chapstick two weeks after purchasing. It is our time to finally have access to comfort, convenient, and classy clothing that actually fits our needs!

Risks and challenges
One potential area for concern is that not enough working women will hear about this new brand of comfortable, professional slacks. I've been working with a marketing consultant to develop a detailed outreach strategy that will extend my reach and build a solid brand awareness among working women. We still would love and need your help to support, share the word, and share this project on your socials to help us spread the word!! Leggings for fitness and leisure already have a huge market and need for pockets, but women looking for professional attire don't have many choices for the above listed qualities. We are working hard to make sure that women who work in an office, work in a home, work it at the gym, and everywhere else in between, know and see that Feminine Figures is here and waiting to help them have attire to fit their needs!
I've spent months refining my product and testing its durability, comfort, and functionality. However, I'm always open to ideas and constructive feedback! Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our funding goal is based on the cost of one month worth of factory production cost orders. We hope to exceed our goal in order to fulfill future orders with the factory to keep Feminine Figures quickly and efficiently moving forward!
You'll be able to choose your size(s) via survey which I'll be sending out approximately two weeks after the project end date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
