Brief Transitions

Brief Transitions Founder Mary Clavieres

Founder: Mary Clavieres

Company Description: Mesh underwear for women after childbirth and surgeries.

What inspired you to start your company?

“I saw a unique need in the marketplace after the birth of my daughter. The hospital gave me mesh underwear to use after my C-section, and I couldn’t find them to purchase for my home recovery. I bought oversized underwear and cut the elastic to avoid putting pressure on my midsection. Brief Transitions was born out of a desire to provide mesh underwear to women because they deserve to have the supplies they need for postpartum and post-surgical recovery.”

PantyProp

PantyProp

Founder: Crystal Etienne

Company Description: Underwear & swimwear with leak-proof protection

What inspired you to start your company?

“In my twenties, I gave birth to my daughter. One day out of the blue, I noticed that when I would laugh or cough, I had no control over pesky leaks.

“At first I felt embarrassed, and I couldn’t find a solution on the market. The world is shifting away from sanitary pads, but the other solution available — insertables — may be dangerous, riddled with chemicals and often fails. Many people choose this option for comfort, even though it could be unsafe.

“As my daughter grew up, she got nervous to go to swim meets on her period. I couldn’t bear the idea of her feeling ashamed or awkward. I wanted her to know she could do anything with confidence!

“I created the solution. PantyProp is a health-leisure brand that offers a comprehensive line of hygiene fashion wearables with built-in technology for incontinence and feminine care.”

Two to Tango

personal care
Candice Smith, Cofounder, Two to Tango

Founder(s): Candice Smith

Company Description:

Two to Tango is a sexual wellness and education company providing sex education for adults. Their Sexperiential Learning™ program uses hands-on board games and products to teach intimate communication and deepen emotional connections.

Two to Tango provides couples with fun board games for sex and intimacy — but these games are actually research-backed products that incorporate cognitive science, relationship psychology, linguistic studies, and education pedagogy.

What inspired you to start your company?

When Two to Tango Cofounder Candice Smith graduated in 2011 with an undergraduate degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, there was a great deal of apathy around feminism, consent, and women’s issues. Armed with the belief that education was the only way to generate meaningful change in society, Candice joined Teach for America and earned a Masters Degree in Education.

During this time, she focused on increasing engagement through gamification, a technique that incorporates elements of game playing (e.g., point scoring, competition with others, rules of play) into other areas of activity (such as education) in order to increase engagement and team-building.

Meanwhile, Candice noticed that despite her sexuality studies education, she was struggling to communicate her sexual wants, needs and desires in her personal and dating life. Candice finally found empowerment through “sexperimentation”, and learned how to apply the sexual power dynamics she understood in theory and put them into practice in her real life. It revolutionized her entire view of sex and intimacy.

Candice’s new level of self-understanding and discovery enabled her to enter into a healthy intimate relationship. Not long after, the #metoo movement gained traction. This, paired with her own journey of sexual empowerment, led Candice to realize more than ever that society was in need of better education tools surrounding communication and sexuality.

Candice and her partner set out to tackle this issue by launching Two to Tango, a line of adult sex-ed products and services that use Sexperiential Learning™ to create a common language for couples. This makes the bedroom into a safe space where both partners can engage in honest communication and respect.

Slick Chicks

Founder: Helya Mohammadian

Company Description: Slick Chicks underwear are designed for people with disabilities and mobility challenges, who find the everyday task of changing difficult. 

What inspired you to start your company?

“Three years ago my sister gave birth to my adorable nephew. She had complications during labor and had to undergo an emergency C-section. The post-surgery recovery left her feeling debilitated for several weeks. Just getting out of bed was a major ordeal. Her husband had to help her use the restroom, shower, and change because she couldn’t bend over. Something as personal as putting on her underwear, she couldn’t do alone. I hated to see my sister lose her independence. So I created Slick Chicks underwear to help her change. Little did I realize that this product could have an impact on millions of people.”

How is your company generating positive change?

“Slick Chicks’ side-fastening underwear were designed to empower all people who face any physical challenges. They’re incredibly easy to put on and provide flexibility and convenience for women to change on their own, regaining their independence and dignity.
