New York City, New York – According to a recent survey, there are an estimated 700,000 transgender people living in the U.S. alone, with the majority of them being male-to-female. Just as importantly, there are now more and more transgender models working in fashion than there ever was before… models such as Lauren Foster, Isis King, Connie Fleming and Lea T. Let’s not forget the transgender actresses such as Candis Cayne and Laverne Cox, or beauty pageant Queen Jena Talackova either. Yet even while keeping all that in mind, transgender women still have a hard time finding lingerie that is specifically designed for them. One lingerie company is doing their best to change that… Chrysalis Lingerie.
Based out of New York City, Chrysalis is a Lingerie brand created specifically for the Women of the Transgender Community. According to thier website, Chrysalis offers Lingerie that helps to resolve issues of the Transgender experience so you can concentrate on more important things, you! Along with their exquisitely made Lingerie Chrysalis offers a peace of mind. One example is their line of bras that are made to hold custom full-cup inserts and Panties that effectively tuck, hold, and smooth out for the perfect seamless look… Available in their Basic and Couture Collections.
Though Chrysalis Lingerie has been around since 2010, they are enjoying newfound recognition. The brand was featured on the Style Network’s documentary, “Born Male, Living Female.”
Chrysalis came about to alleviate a primary stress and issue for Transgender Women. In the greater scope, Chrysalis was created to help change the dehumanizing stereotypes and biases we are subjected to as a group and community. Chrysalis symbolizes the acknowledgment and diversity of our existence and provides a solution to our specific needs. As a brand, Chrysalis takes Transgender Women beyond the marginalization imposed by the media and society and represents them as beautiful intelligent women with prowess, and the embodiment of feminine sensuality.
Chrysalis Lingerie will be launching their “Basic Collection” this spring, available through their online store.
