Happy 5th Anniversary to Us! We Were Going Commando Before Commando Was Cool! June 16 2015, 0 Comments
I am so excited that this month, Go Free Pants will be celebrating our five-year anniversary! It has been such an exciting time to be in the fashion world, providing a unique product that helps women feel more confident and sexy in their lives, every single day.
For those of you who know me personally, you can understand my awe at living my life as an entrepreneur for five years. I am lucky to have been able to live out my dream of owning my own business while still being involved in hospice, another cause that is very near and dear to my heart. That is why I have combined these two parts of my life, letting my clothing business help support hospice, as a portion of the proceeds from sales of Go Free Pants goes to support the special care hospice provides patients and families in the last months of life.
All of this started from a casual conversation with some of my friends about panty lines. Some wear thongs to deal with the panty line issue, while others just don’t wear underwear at all! That got me thinking, going without underwear might be the answer…as long as it was comfortable. The cross seam in traditional pants is far from comfortable, so the idea was born to get rid of the cross seam and replace it with a smooth cotton panel. A prototype was made, and my friends instantly fell in love with Go Free Pants. I knew I had to get this out to other women to let everyone experience the sexy and liberating feeling of “going free!”
And now, according to a recent article in the New York Times, thong sales are down and granny pants are making a comfortable comeback! Take this poll to see where you fall in the underwear category. Ladies who go commando now represent 12% of us, almost tied with the 19% who wear thongs. Comfort is winning, and my prediction is that going commando will rise to the top as soon as women allow themselves that secret privilege to be comfortable and feel sexy.
Thank you for your support over the past five years. To each and every person who has bought a pair of Go Free Pants, who wears them and tells their friends how comfortable they feel. To everyone who has supported me through the long nights and given me encouragement when things got tough. I couldn’t have done it without you. I’m always looking toward the future and I see many years of success ahead not only for Go Free Pants, but her kissing-cousin line, GOFREEDOM, which has been designed for both men and women in the military. You will be hearing much more about GOFREEDOM in the coming months, so stay tuned! Thank you, one and all, for your love and support. It takes a village, and I love my tribe!
Thanks to Our Fathers
With Father’s Day coming up, I want to take a moment to honor the men in our lives. For so many of us, it was the love and support of our fathers who helped us grow into strong, confident, successful women. Here’s to the fathers, and those men who are like a father to us, who support us with their time, love and wisdom. Happy Father’s Day!
