Twinnks Turns 1!
TWINNKS IS ONE! There have been a lot of rewarding moments but also some terrifying and frustrating ones.  Starting a business is not easy at all and I HATE when people play it off like it is. We’ve listened to a...
Support the Girls Blog Series
If you've been following us along, you know that it took us 4 years to launch Twinnks. While we’ve been overwhelmed with gratitude by the support, we’ve also seen how hard it is for small businesses to get their names...
First Podcast!
Last week we were guests on the All of It Podcast with Angel Marr and it was awesome! We’ve wanted to be on a podcast to put ourselves out there and show some personality. Her strategy is to make it as conversational...
Holiday Gift Guide
The holidays are the best. It’s definitely our favorite part of the year with the exception of one part: gift exchanges. It’s so stressful! Who knows what anyone wants, especially when we aren’t really leaving the house? That’s why we...
Muses
A few of our many muses that inspire us:  Amy Smilovic (founder of Tibi): not only does she have amazing style but she is BLUNT. I love a broad who tells it like it is. She is all about slow...
Style That Doesn't Shout
Lets chat personal style.   As mentioned on our “about us”, we don’t see ourselves providing a wide variety of patterns or bright colors because that’s just not our comfort zone. While we very much appreciate fashion-risks and statement pieces (they’re...
The Vision
The closer we get to expanding products, the more hungry we are for more. More knowledge, more inspiration, more ideas (hence “mood board Monday” we’ve started doing on Instagram).  We ordered a few books about styling, fit and fashion to...
Color of Change
The past week has given us a huge opportunity to listen, learn and educate ourselves on the insane injustices of the world. As two white women, we’ll never know firsthand just how unfair it is, but reading the stories and...
The Skinny on Loungewear and Nude Bra
We get a lot of people asking us why we haven’t gotten a nude bra so here’s the deal: we’re doing it - TRUST - but I want to take this opportunity to vent about (& explain) the process.  We...
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...
