Transgender Lingerie Line LaunchesDesigner Cy Lauz recently launched her new underwear label Chrysalis. What exactly separates Chrysalis from brands like Victoria’s Secret and Fredericks of Hollywood?  Pretty simple, Lauz’scompany caters to the people who identify as female but don’t have the body type to fit into typical women’s lingerie.

“A lot of women have been waiting a long time for something like this,” Chrysalis co-founder Cy Lauz told Lingerie Talk.

“Speaking from personal experience, I found no products that specifically cater to transgender women. There are some things for cross-dressers and drag queens, but they’re all sexually exploitative. I wanted a product that actually celebrated who we are, something that made us feel beautiful but is also practical.”

The bras and panties under the Chrysalis label are specifically designed for a transgendered body. The bra has hidden pockets to hold silicone inserts and the panty (the T-string) is designed with a mesh elastic which makes it easier to tuck in and lift the penis.

“Chrysalis answers a lot of problems and questions for transgender women regarding their underwear,” Lauz said. “It gives them peace of mind. You don’t have to think about it anymore.”

The designer also pointed out that the items in her collection can be used by anyone. The underwear would benefit women who’ve had mastectomies. Lauz plans a full launch in May which will include the Basics Collection, for daily wear, and a Couture Collection is set to launch in the fall.

    • This! Honestly there is nothing to get mad at. There is a market for Transgender individuals (whether you personally agree with it or not) that needs to be catered too.
