While planning our New York trip, Naina & I had gotten in touch with Negative Underwear through Fohr Card and Marissa at Negative invited us over to their studio in Manhattan. We fixed a date and visited their beautiful and spacious Soho studio towards the second half of our stay. I have such a weak spot of spaces that get plenty of natural light – the more the better! And their studio was love at first sight. Not to forget their actual product – the understated, non-frilly, simple and functional undergarments. They have bras (all non-padded), panties and my favorite – the bodysuits. I even tried one on in black. You’ll see later. Blacks, whites and just a few subtle pastels & prints, you can tell that emphasis is on quality and functionality rather than loud frills, bows and in-your-face cleavage. They want their product to feel like second skin and it does. Marissa told us a bit about her journey and how for a few years they were only sampling trying to get their materials and fit perfect and how it is tough to not get product manufactured in China and they don’t. It was a lovely afternoon spent with lovely and boss girls after which we tried our favorite pieces, said our goodbyes and went on to walk more around Soho till we found a spot for lunch. Here are some pics of our time at the studio and trying out some Negative Underwear.
