Loungewear Venture
We’re busting into loungewear!  We started Twinnks with the vision of making “all things basic” so we’re amped on this new venture. To note- this isn’t taking away from us expanding colors/sizes with the Nah Bra but we’re eager to get...
A Wrap Up: We're Done!!
HOLY SHIT we got our first bulk order and posted our launch date (3/17/20). As I have champagne to calm my nerves, I’m reflecting on the last 4 years and have a few thoughts to share.  First, I cannot IMAGINE...
We Aint Perfekt
If you don't follow Tibi creator, Amy Smilovic, on Instagram stop what you're doing and follow ASAP. She posts such helpful (& relatable) tips for starting a business. Her latest from 4/24/19: It's always discouraging being told to "be patient." ...
We’ve been MIA. Here’s why
We’d like to confirm that bra making is hard and takes a long time. Here’s the latest with Twinnks: we came back from our meeting with the new factory in Baltimore on top of the world. They were (and still...
Update on San Fran
Well that was productive.  In case you missed our last blog, we deemed e-mail inefficient and mannequins stupid so we flew out to San Francisco and hired a fit model to finalize the 5th prototype. Once we landed we immediately...
Dear Jackie
I was minding my own business on a lovely Sunday afternoon at The People’s Market in Charlotte when this girl, Jackie, started talking to me. The People’s Market is mainly a coffee and lunch place but they serve alcohol and...
Choosing our name and logo: thanks urban dictionary!
I gotta say, this was the fun part.  Brainstorming our company name started early on. We knew from the beginning we did not want anything lingerie-ish. Some of the ones we played with were: Mint (different spellings= minte, mynt,) -cool/fresh...
NO, bra lines aren't caused by the "wrong size"
We touched on this a little in a previous blog post but when we got on this visible cup line (VCL) soapbox, we did our homework and researched if there was already an existing solution. What we found was frustrating. Not...
a little more about us & twinnks
Who are we? We’re twins, 29 years old, almost 30 (I know! Can you believe it?), and we are identical in every sense of the word – genetically, looks (obviously), style, sense of humor, opinions, etc. We’ve even fainted at...
our visit to the factory
R, here… As mentioned in the previous post, we’re working with our 2nd factory. The first factory was fine, but we didn’t think she understood the vision behind Twinnks and after receiving the first prototype, it was clear we were...
What is This About?
Hi, welcome to Twinnks!  We’re R and R. Yes, we have actual names, but can’t share them yet (explanation to come).  We’re twin sisters who are creating a new, innovative bra and documenting the entire process from prototype, to launch,...
