I wrote about Ampere a few months back after meeting lovely co-founder, Jiabei Chen, who left a career in corporate law to launch a lingerie line that provided women with a better shopping experience that they were getting in traditional stores. With the goal of helping women feel beautiful and confident and creating a new way to shop for underthings, Ampere was launched in November of 2012 and their first collection was beautiful (see photos below).
Now they’re all set to produce their second collection, but they need our help! They’re launching a Kickstarter campaign today to help raise funds for this venture. Check out their campaign here. In addition to supporting a wonderful brand, backers also get some pretty sweet perks…
Jiabei was kind enough to answer a few of my most pressing questions about Ampere and the campaign:
What makes Ampere unique?
Ampere is unique in both our products and our experience. We’ve designed luxurious items in a wide range of sizes – more than double the number of sizes most brands produce. We sell directly to customers online. When you place an order, we’ll send you multiple sizes to try on in the comfort of your own home with free shipping and free returns. We’re able to offer all of this at nearly half of the price of comparable brands because we’ve cut out the middlemen.
In addition to backing the campaign, how can people get involved?
If you’re an existing customer, we always love to hear from you. We appreciate all feedback and really take it into consideration when designing future collections.
What is your favorite piece from the new collection?
The Perfect Strapless Bra. The name says it all. It’s so difficult to get a strapless bra that is comfortable but actually stays up. Much less one that’s also pretty.
