Our Story - Maria's Manifesto
In the lingerie department fitting room, it seems like everyone experiences the same thing. They dislike something about themselves, and no one is immune.
My journey to founding CaroQuilla began when I was a professional bra fitter and standing beside people who were at their most vulnerable. The experience opened my eyes and helped me realize how a piece of clothing that (for the most part) isn’t seen by others can have a big impact on someone’s self-perception. Everyone aspires to look and feel beautiful and comfortable. With the right garment and the right perspective, recognizing just how beautiful they truly are is possible.
With everything I learned in those lingerie change rooms, I decided to start my own line of undies. We designed underwear that could be worn every single day without sacrificing your comfort. They’re made to complement the body, and since we’re dedicated to the environment, we knew we also had to contribute to the greater good in the process.
Because of this, our mission is to empower women and people who menstruate with the recognition that they are beautiful just the way they are, and to help them embrace their bodies, love themselves and feel confident. The minute we change our perceptions, we start to realize we are all beautiful, inside and out!
