the future is inclusive

Zhe:

Zhe by Karyn Elizabeth a lingerie brand designed with the fit and function needs of the TGNC community. Our lingerie was designed to address the specific needs of transgender women and femme identifying people, our underwear are designed with a wider gusset and also include a supportive multi layered front panel. Our specially made power mesh is soft and luxurious, while also having a high spandex content to help with smoothing and support where necessary. After researching and seeing the lengths that trans women went to feel comfortable in their clothes, I wanted to streamline all those DIY techniques and alleviate some of the unhealthy practices of taping.
