Hi everyone! Hope all of you are having a beautiful summer :)
Been wanting to reach out a few weeks ago with an update, but we had to work out a few variables first. Now that a few things have been clarified, let's start with the most eagerly-anticipated info on when THINX will be delivered!
We're being told by our production partners that September will be the new, soonest delivery date. Basically, in order to scale the underwear in production to properly fit women from XS to XXL, the technology needs to scale accordingly. As a result, we need time to make sure the factory is creating these smart underwear in the most thoughtful way: where every woman and girl who wears these various sizes will get the support she needs, and where she needs it most.
We are almost done with this process and once we have everything cleared with the factory, we will then need need 35 days to cut and sew. The factory feels confident that will begin in August, and don't worry about changing address information if you're moving. We will be back in touch to get solid and current address info closer to the delivery date.
In other news, we've been very busy getting things together for our upcoming September/October tour throughout the United States where we will be visiting universities for THINX and Miki's new book. Did you hear about the book yet? It's being published by Harper Collins with a forward by Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos), and is called "Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job, Start a New Business and Live Happily Ever After."
We plan on seeing as many of you awesome folks as possible on this tour (we'll send out actual locations closer to the date!), so if you have a local university you think we should visit, or a store where you can imagine THINX being sold, let us know! We'll also be looking for people who have stories they'd like to share about cool things they've done, so if you would like to nominate yourself or someone you know to come share your story, let us know!
Looking forward to sharing more news soon, and thanks again everyone for being such pioneering rockstars on our team! What an incredible time to be a part of THINX as it grows, and never again will there be another time like this one!
With love and gratitude for all of you,
Antonia + Miki & Radha
