Who We Are

ThirdLove disrupted the lingerie industry by empowering women to find their perfect fit online with our innovative Fitting Room® quiz and is one of the original brands to operate 100% direct-to-consumer. All design and R&D is done in-house, and our extensive and complex supply chain is fully managed by our team. Inclusivity is at the core of who we are and how we serve our customers and build our teams.

Traditionally, women were given a choice between two options when it came to their bras and underwear: Be sexy, or be comfortable. Our Cofounders: Dave Spector, Heidi Zak, and Ra’el Cohen, thought that was outdated too — so, in 2013,  they created ThirdLove — a third, better option, which doesn’t force us to choose between being sexy or comfortable.

At Kit Undergarments, we believe your clothes reflect who you are, and your intimates should be no different. Founded by celebrity stylists Jamie Mizrahi and Simone Harouche, Kit Undergarments was built around a mission to help women everywhere celebrate their unique personal styles. From trend-forward silhouettes and playful prints to Earth-friendly materials, everything in the Kit collection is made with both a stylish customer and the planet in mind. All design is done in-house, and our supply chain is fully managed by our parent, ThirdLove.

Our tight-knit team operates as an early-stage start-up, meaning we value resourcefulness and flexibility — and that everyone has the opportunity to grow quickly with the brand.

What Our Team Embodies

Kit Undergarments joined the ThirdLove brand family in 2022 and has since been folded into ThirdLove's inclusive, fast-paced, and data-driven culture. As part of the ThirdLove brand family, we share a commitment to making people feel comfortable and empowered through our product, the message we spread, and the culture we promote.

The Kit team is lean, and as we grow our business, everyone is expected to be agile, creative, and willing to wear multiple hats. We work both independently and collaboratively with ThirdLove, who supports the more technical aspects of operating a company — as well as our people.

ThirdLove was recently recognized asGreat Places to Work, a certification given to a very small percentage of companies who apply for it and determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means ThirdLove is one of the best companies to work for in the country.
