MeUndies has disrupted the traditional market for men’s and women’s premium underwear with a model that cuts out the retail middleman. The company has been built from scratch as a vertically integrated, direct-to-consumer entity that does it all. This includes everything from design, manufacturing, marketing and web development, to fulfillment and shipping.

As a new lifestyle brand, MeUndies is transforming how people perceive and buy basics such as underwear, socks, bralettes and other items. The company’s mantra of delivering “The World’s Most Comfortable Basics” includes a relentless emphasis on quality and service.
