We think of our underwear as a second skin — something that covers us 24/7. And, we like it to keep us looking (and feeling) our best. Thankfully, Dear Kate shares the same mindset. The revolutionary undergarment brand — which got its start designing period panties — is changing the way we think about functional intimates with the introduction of its new sportswear line.
Founder, CEO, and chemical engineer Julie Sygiel seized upon a gap in the market and developed the silky-soft, patent-pending fabric behind each pair of Dear Kates.
