About this project
We invented THE TRAVEL BRA for those times when you would rather not keep valuables in your bag or hotel room and because money belts are bulky, uncomfortable, hot and obvious. We knew there had to be a better way to discreetly store valuables when traveling.
We also wanted a travel bra that was SUPER COMFORTABLE. That's why we worked with a lingerie designer to include every comfort feature known to woman in the design of THE TRAVEL BRA. No hook and eye to dig in to your back while seated on a bus or plane, wide shoulder straps and wide arm holes that won't cut in to you by the end of a long day, soft bindings, no scratchy labels, soft strong mesh back with plenty of real support, and sewn with flat seam stitching.
The organic cotton and 70% bamboo fabric we have sourced to make THE TRAVEL BRA is anti-microbacterial so it can go a little longer between washes which matters when you travel. It's wickable like wool but soft to the touch and deliciously soft on the skin. It's cool in summer, machine-washable and very breathable.
Simply put, THE TRAVEL BRA is beautiful to wear and incredibly practical. It holds its shape and will last for years. Perfect for the female solo traveler or backpacker and a great Bon Voyage gift.
The drop-down soft mesh pocket expands to hold a passport or roll of cash, and when not in use simply folds back up under the chest binding to be invisible, so that THE TRAVEL BRA looks like any other bra when the secret pockets are not in use.
THE TRAVEL BRA is a full support bra beautifully engineered by our lingerie designer to be the best a bra can be.
The mesh side pocket of THE TRAVEL BRA is perfect for discreetly, safely and comfortably hiding a credit card or hotel room key.
The hidden mini-pocket of THE TRAVEL BRA is perfect for storing rings (for example when fingers swell when traveling), or a USB stick with all your precious holiday snaps.
The front lining is designed to be accessible to stash your cash in the cups.
And, of course, we have matching Travel Knickers. Also made of supersoft organic cotton and bamboo and with soft bindings, like the Travel Bra, the Travel Knickers are anti-microbacterial, long-lasting and completely wickable and washable.
Oh, and we also submitted our Travel Bra for patenting:- The Travel Bra has been examined and an Australian patent is approved and the international patent is pending - woohoo!
THE TRAVEL BRA comes in XS, S, M, L and XL. Depending on demand, we will be adding more sizes in our next production run in January 2016. THE TRAVEL BRA comes in BLACK with Blue stitching, as seen in the photos on this page, and in RED with Black stitching as seen in the video.
We will be in touch at the completion of this campaign with sizing details and to learn your size and color preferences.
Every travel packed bag needs a TRAVEL BRA for those times when you want the comfort of having your valuables close and undetectable. Don't ruin your holiday with a lost passport or stolen cards or cash. Take your beautiful TRAVEL BRA on every adventure.
Risks and challenges
Our TRAVEL BRA has been designed by a lingerie designer with 18 years experience working for two of the world's leading lingerie companies. The design is based on a specification provided by a team of experienced travelers who told us what they wanted and needed in the way of a comfortable bra to travel in with hidden storage features.
We have been working with two companies in China for more than six months perfecting the prototypes, securing a reliable supply chain and ensuring excellent quality control systems. Sampling has been extensive and we are PERFECTIONISTS! :) We are so proud of the quality, look and feel of The Travel Bra and matching Travel Knickers and we know that you will be as delighted as we are.
We also have inspected the factories and seen that workers are in safe, light, clean working conditions with plenty of opportunity for social interaction and earning a fair wage. And you know that the great thing about bamboo is that it is sustainably grown and so great for the planet too.
Our manufacturers have commenced a limited production run of 2,000 garments that we estimate will be enough to meet our Kickstarter campaign orders. (Thankyou Mr Visa Card). We are confident we will be ready to ship in early December. We aim to have the first 2,000 TRAVEL BRAS and TRAVEL KNICKERS to those who ordered first before the holiday season begins. If our campaign exceeds our hopes and dreams, those who follow will receive their garments in the new year January or February 2016.
If you have backed our campaign in order to give the perfect Xmas gift to some one, at the completion of the campaign when we survey our backers for size and color preferences, we will also ask if you would like us to immediately send you a beautiful card that you can present to your giftee.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
