Did you know that there are 84 bra sizes – all between an A cup and a K cup!
And, if you have ever shopped for a bra, you will know that there are definitely NOT 84 sizes out there available to the public. One of the biggest problems, when it comes to lingerie is knowing what is the perfect size for you, and most cannot actually find their exact size because it doesn’t exist.
At least, not until now!
Thursdays supports women of a C cup and up! And, they are doing this with style and elegance too! Their products are pure South African which makes this all the more amazing!
Shona Macdonald, who you may recognise from her little endeavour within the Shark Tank and as a real survivor on Survivor SA: Champions a few years back, is an innovative entrepreneur, always looking for ways to promote her latest project.
Thursdays has been going since 2015 with an official lingerie launch in December 2018, and now Shona is venturing into the world of Crowd Funding.
We caught up with Shona at Heavy Chef in the last week, where she launched the official start of her Crowdfunding aptly named #Thundaboobs!
In order to create bra sizes further than an F cup, they need a little help. The fact that if you want a plus plus size bra you have to look at spending around R1500 and have it custom-made.
Through Thundfund, Shona is pushing the #Thundaboobs Campaign, where she aims to raise a whopping R3 000 000. Their tipping point is R100 000, which means that if they don’t reach that point, then they must refund everyone their donations.
Their actual milestones?
Milestone 1: Expand our size range to a G cup
Milestone 2: Expand our size range to a K cup
Milestone 3: Create a maternity wear collection
Milestone 4: Create a swimwear collection for 2020
Milestone 5: Design functional sports bras
