How to wear it

Embrago styles do the job of both next-to-skin foundation layer and outer layer. They also adjust to fluctuations in your hormones and weight, so that they fit perfectly even when your bust and body size changes, even when you gain or lose 20 pounds. This is clothing that's more versatile and practical, healthier and more comfortable for your curves than anything you've ever experienced.

 

Getting dressed is now exponentially easier and faster, and more sustainable for our bodies, our lives, and our planet.
 

That changes everything.

how to care for it.

Our bodies are soft, changing, and organic. So why should we be constrained by rigid, unforgiving bras? 

We re-imagined how full bust support works, and developed a totally new concept that adapts to our living, breathing curves every day. It's a modern, comfort-forward new way to get dressed. Not another bulky 'built in bra", but an ingenious, patented new support system that builds smart lifting and shaping right into the seams of the clothes.

And so you can look great, we put this system into versatile, chic, go-anywhere styles that can be dressed up or down. Go out, travel, play, exercise, or just relax at home.

BRA PAIN IS REAL

Just getting dressed can be exhausting.

Every day, millions of us strap and squeeze our natural curves into constrictive wires, bands, bras and shapewear.

Besides being uncomfortable, traditional foundations can cause physical and psychological problems. Narrow straps digging into shoulders and tight bands compressing the rib cage create pressure that negatively affects the condition of skin, muscles, nerves, digestion, blood circulation, and lymph flow.

These issues are worse for heavier breasts and  are compounded by long-term wear. The curvier we are and the older we get, the worse the problems. Our mental health suffers, too, due to the social price of being "too big" and feeling bad about our bodies.

The standard advice offered by the clothing industry? "Get a better-fitting bra." 

 

But no amount of bra fitting or bra shopping is going to change the forces of nature, gravity, and time.

THE STATUS QUO IS UNSUSTAINABLE

We're doing something about it.

According to bra-fitting experts, your bra size changes many times over your lifetime, and can change every 3 months due to shifts in hormones, weight, lifestyle, or medications. Those same experts recommend replacing your bras every 6 months because they stretch, wear out, and no longer support effectively.

How is this acceptable?  Buying new bras every few months is not feasible for most women, and it's not a real solution to the fit challenges. It also perpetuates overproduction and garment industry waste. Discarded bras and their synthetic dyes and chemicals are contributing to the growing problem of global-scale pollution created by the fast fashion industry.

The system is broken. So we choose to "think different"-- about bust support and how we dress our bodies.

re-imagined SUPPORT

Body-responsive design

Our bodies are soft, changing, evolving.  A bra is by design constrictive, unchanging, unforgiving. So rather than replacing bras with more bras, we re-imagined bust support from scratch. We set out to eliminate all the harsh hardware that causes pain and problems, and to design a system that matches our bodies' energy: soft, changing, and adaptable.

After more than five years of research, design, and prototyping, plus a whole lot of imagination and determination, we did just that. Not only did we eliminate the bands, wires, hooks, and synthetics of bras and shapewear, we  actually created an entirely new and more sustainable way to get dressed. We designed all-in-one clothing with integrated, body-responsive bust support designed especially for curves in midsize and plus size, with large and heavy busts in mind.

Embrago styles do the job of both next-to-skin foundation layer and outer layer. They also adjust to fluctuations in your hormones and weight, so that they fit perfectly even when your bust and body size changes, even when you gain or lose 20 pounds. This is clothing that's more versatile and practical, healthier and more comfortable for your curves than anything you've ever experienced.

 

Getting dressed is now exponentially easier and faster, and more sustainable for our bodies, our lives, and our planet.
 

That changes everything.
