Outfit of the Week: Cozying Up! December 08, 2016 17:28

MADI underwear aren't just perfect to wear out and about with your friends or at work, they're perfect to cozy up in right at home! This week's outfit was inspired by the recent winter that seems to have suddenly appeared! If it wasn't cold before it sure is now, and that means it's the perfect time to snuggle up on your couch with a fire and binge watch the new Gilmore Girls episodes!
We're starting with The Pamela-Ivory Cheeky Brazilian underwear and layering over them a basic pair of black leggings. Then, on top, we're putting on our coziest sweatshirt in a perfectly seasonal color! We're keeping the outfit simple and topping it off with a pair of fur-lined slippers.

Outfit of the Week: Fall Fun October 13, 2016 17:28

This week's outfit is something that could be worn to just about anything this time of the year, especially with a few tweaks and modifications to make it your own! Depending on where you work, it could be worn with a camisole underneath, it could be worn to meet with friends, to go out, for a casual date, for lunch or dinner, to the museum or just running errands!
We're starting with The Pamela- Black Cheeky Brazilian panties and The Hendricks- Classic Comfort Bamboo Bralette. Over that we are adding a black and creme geometric chiffon top and a pair of light gray skinny jeans. From here, it's up to you how you style it! If you're running errands you may want to pop on a pair of Vans black slip-ons or a pair of black riding style boots to meet with friends. If you're going out, you may want to put on a pair of black wedges and a black leather jacket! There are so many possibilities when you start with the right staples!

We're starting with The Pamela-Cheeky Brazilian underwear in white, and layering over them a pair of black, skinny, ankle pants. On top, we're going with a fun, loose peplum-style cream colored top.

The Women Behind The Underwear April 28, 2016 21:27

Each MADI style is named after individual women who’ve made a difference in the life of our founder and who symbolize the kind of impact MADI can make in the world! Keep reading to learn about how each style got it's name!

From Hayley, MADI’s founder:

I wanted the women buying MADI intimates to picture their mom, sister, best friend, etc. receiving the donated pair.  This was a CRUCIAL element in our development - not only is the name of our intimates line a woman's name (MADI - also spelling out Make a Difference Intimates) - but our styles are named after women as well.  I wanted the women receiving the donations to matter - to have a name.

These important women in my life even inspired the creative process behind designing the garment shapes.  I'm a woman - and I know what women wear and don't wear.  We stick to the styles we know and love - it's usually pretty black and white - but this answer certainly isn't the same across the board for every woman.  For example, some women only wear briefs. Some only wear thongs.  So, I designed clean-cut styles that women feel sexy in and feel comfortable wearing most often.  I wanted to steer clear from trendy styles and fabrics or loud colors that lose their flavor after a year or so.  MADI intimates are simple, luxurious basics that women constantly search their drawers for.  

During the design process, I pictured the loved one who inspired the style name.  I let the design flow from her personality - what makes her unique to the world?  How can an undergarment style embody the essence of her soul?

 

 

The Bonnie

First, I started with my Grandma, Bonnie.  (I call her Gaga, but that wouldn't make for a very nice panty name :) ! )

The brief reminded me of her - because it's CLASSIC.  Briefs will never go out of style - even young women find them most comfy.  When I think of my grandma I think of comfort, ever-present, and always in-style :).

About the style:

Buy The Bonnie HERE

 

Bonnie is well rounded in life and on your body.  High-rise fit with a retro look, flattering every womanly curve.

 

 

 

The Mimi

Mimi is what I call my other Grandma.  She's always around and has never let me down!  This makes me think of the bikini style.  It's modest in the back and doesn't ride - you know she will always stay with you :).

About the style:

Buy The Mimi HERE

Mimi's got your back in everyday life (literally) with full coverage bottoms and a chic, clean front. 

 

 

 

The Kyle

Kyle is my best friend since 4th grade.  She has a gender fluid name and is always up for anything.  The origin of the classic boyshort stemmed from boxers - a low-rise fit with a wide band.  We made it a cheekier cut though - why?  Because we're girls and want to feel sexy!

About the style:

Buy The Kyle HERE

Kyle is the girl-next-door.  Comfy coverage with a classic fit.

 

 

 

The Pamela

Pamela is my wonderful mom.  She is the most genuine person I know - but also is a major "boss chic" with sass.  This style is inspired by the Brazilian swimwear bikini style.  I drew this one up living in a small beach town in Florida.  It reminded me of my mom - sweet and cute all around but spicy when you least expect it!

About the style:

Buy The Pamela HERE

Pamela is sweet with a little bit of spice.  Feminine, soft and sexy with moderate bottom coverage.

 

 

 

The Diana

Diana is my other best friend from 4th grade.  She's outspoken and knows how to express exactly what she wants!  Her hair even inspired this style.  Her long, wavy locks remind me of the fluid, feminine floral pattern in the wide lace band.

About the style:

Buy The Diana HERE

Diana isn't afraid to be different – she radiates beauty and confidence.  Ultra cheeky bottom with a floral wide lace band

 

 

 

The Kaydee

The Kaydee was named after my college sorority, Kappa Delta.  I learned a lot of confidence in this life stage - I also had a lot of fun with my sisters, creating memories that will last forever.  This style (our now most popular style) was designed with confidence and flair.  This one is a guys' favorite! :)

About the style:

Buy The Kaydee HERE

The Kaydee is confident and sassy.  Cheeky bottom coverage with a flirty floral wide lace band.

 

 

 

The Sybil

The Sybil sleep top was named after my first cousin.  She's bold and loud, but is somehow soft and cuddly at the same time.  The design behind this top was to be a garment you never want to take off.  And this is literally a possibility as the top was designed to be worn for bed and outerwear over jeans or shorts!

About the style:

Buy The Sybil HERE

Sybil is bold and mysterious.  She's comfortable in her own skin.
