The Bra in a Box brand is all about bringing simplicity back to the complicated world we navigate as women. And boy are we complex! A complex woman in a complex world needs as much simplicity as possible. There's a certain logic to simplicity that is beautiful.
We're committed to celebrating authenticity. Regardless of your fashion style, your theories on Botox, augmentation, or diet, you be you! We each get to choose. Authenticity is not about letting it all hang out no matter how that makes us feel. It's about saying, "This is who I am, and I'm okay with that. In fact, I love it!"
We value quality! Our CEO, Penelope Przekop, has a longstanding career as a quality systems engineer and our COO, Phoebe Horak, is a nurse pursuing a Master's Degree in Quality Assurance. Bra in a Box is all about providing common sense solutions that meet our high quality standards ... and yours.
In general, women don't wear bras because we love them. We asked, "So why DO we wear them? Who decided we needed to and what's the purpose? Who are we ultimately pleasing by wearing a bra?"
Sometimes the answer is right before your eyes, but a mindset and preconceived notions cloud the view. Bra in a Box is about bringing simplicity and logic in sight.
The Bra in a Box team has developed a simple, cost-effective, logical solution by solving the primary issue that has bound us to straps, hooks, elastic and scratchy lace and contributed to the idea that we alone are not quite enough. Bra in a Box is about simplicity and logic. It's time to finally say goodbye to the bra.
