Dear Trusst Supporters,
With the holidays around the corner, we’ve had some time to reflect on the things for which we are truly thankful. As many of you know, we began this journey just over a year ago, with a dream and vision for what our products could be. Since then, we have successfully designed, tested and patented our support system, and have pre-sold hundreds of units for our first production run (thanks to you!).
The best part of our experience is hearing from you, our wonderful supporters. During our kickstarter we received numerous messages mentioning the placement of the seams on our cups. We listened and changed the placement to make them much less noticeable under tight shirts. We’re really excited with how the new Marjory and Suzanne are looking and we hope you agree! You can see the latest iterations of the bras on our product pages. View The Marjory View The Suzanne
We can honestly say that none of this would have been possible without your support. We’ve said this before, but we absolutely love receiving emails, calls, and social media messages from you guys! Whether you want to talk to us about your fitting problems or you want to share your best and funniest bra fail story, you guys make our day!
We had a testing event recently where we invited women and a few bloggers in the Pittsburgh area to try on our bras and give us feedback. You can read some of the great things these women had to say on these blogs: The Momma Homemaker Lil' Burghers
On top of all of that, we’re fileing our final patent this week! It’s been a year in the making, but we’re excited to (hopefully) move from the patent pending status to full fledged patented status!
But, we’ve done more than just testing and filing legal paperwork- we’re getting into production! We’ve connected with a great manufacturer who’s been in the lingerie space for years and has worked with some other larger name lingerie companies. We’re gettings samples in soon, we’ll be sure to keep you updated as we get more and more samples.
Here’s the thing though - we’re still small enough that we can only make so many bras in our initial production run. If you backed us during Kickstarter, don’t worry, we’ve got you. But! We’re filling out of first order and we’re so close to being sold out. Stay tuned for our Black Friday sale, we’re only able to make a few more, so make sure you’re on the list!
We are so thankful for each and every one of you who has been there to support us along the way, and we wish we could travel the world to give each and every one of you a huge hug. However, we’re pretty far away, so we’ll thank you instead by offering you a HUGE discount for Black Friday and Cyber Monday (and all the days in-between).
We're excited to start the Holiday Season off with a Bang, from our Trussted team, to yours.
