Redefining Beauty: Meet Gina C.
You know how sometimes you just luck out and meet someone really awesome? Well, that’s what happened when Gina, this week's Redefining Beauty featured woman, walked into our showroom during our open casting call. The first thing you notice is her height and the second is her infectious smile. She is kind, confident, and beautiful. What more can you really ask for? She’s also a nurse which means she is on her feet all day, so comfort really is key for her life.

What does beauty mean to you?
To me, beauty is being kind. Kindness takes strength and confidence. Being kind to others takes strength. Being kind to yourself takes confidence. It’s not always easy to be kind, especially when it’s not reciprocated; but when it is, it’s contagious! There’s beauty in being strong and confident enough to rise above and show kindness to yourself and others, no matter the circumstance.
What is your favorite thing about Trusst and/or products?
My favorite thing about Trusst is that it’s a female based company that tries to empower other women. They not only give you the emotional support and confidence you need, but the actual physical support with their products and confidence in knowing those products work as promised.
What does being comfortable mean to you and your life?
To me, being comfortable can mean various things. It can mean, putting on my favorite p.j.’s and cocooning up on the couch. It can mean, putting on my favorite lipstick and heels and being a boss lady at work. It can also mean, putting on my favorite leggings and killing a workout. I think it all comes down to confidence. When I feel confident, I feel comfortable.
Why did you choose this place to be photographed?
I chose to be photographed at my gym. I don’t see the gym as a punishment, but rather a reward. I honor my body by moving and showing myself what I can do! I may not lift as much as Popeye and I probably move as fast as a herd of turtles sometimes, but that’s okay. I’m not in competition with anyone but myself. When I push past the discomfort or see how much I am improving, I gain confidence in myself and feel like a bad a**. How can you not feel beautiful doing that?!
How have Trusst bras changed your life?
Trusst bras have really taken the guesswork out of being comfortable! I can put on my bra in the morning and not worry about having to readjust it 10 million times each day. I know the girls will stay put and I don’t really have to give them a second thought. Having that weight lifted off my shoulders - pun intended - allows me to be comfortable and focus my energy on other, more important things.
Trusst was founded by women who challenged the traditional stereotypes of bra design - through engineering, physics, and product design that is not typically seen in the lingerie industry. However, that passion for challenge extends further than just through design; it resonates in the way you live your life as well as the way you perceive yourself and others around you.
