  About Us

She maketh fine linen and selleth it.
- Proverbs 31:24

My sixth baby’s energetic nursing sessions left me desperate to find something that would keep me from flashing the world whenever she was hungry. Plus, lifting up my shirt to breastfeed was just plain cold, not to mention the fact that my baby would grab and pinch my waist to get a good grip. Ouch!

I tried many of the nursing camis out there and (dare I say) I just didn't like them.  The ones with slits would lay funny and make an odd shape under my shirt every now and then.  Not cute!  The ones with flaps gave me yet another clasp to undo in addition to my nursing bra.  I loved my nursing bra, so I was not looking for a cami with a bra built in and I've never been fond of the uni-boob look.  I tried one cami that was not roomy enough on top (if you know what I mean).   I didn't wear it for nursing, but hubby liked it.  I just wanted an undergarment that would convert my shirt into a nursing garment and possibly hold in that post-baby cushion until my abs of steel kicked back in. Then I could wear any tank or top I wanted over it and feel stunning in the process! 

My light bulb moment came while nursing my last baby.  I remember thinking "if someone could cut the feet out of pantyhose, why can't I cut nursing openings in a shirt?"  So I did.  And Skinies was born!  I worked with a designer for what seemed like forever.  I'm a picky gal and I wanted perfection!  Finally, I had the perfect foundational garment for my nursing experience.  The openings are now specially designed to conform to your shape without binding or restricting.


I added a touch of spandex to high quality cotton/poly blend fabric  and fine embroidered flower petals making it perfectly beautiful and comfortable under anything.  My sister-in-law (and my biggest cheerleader) loved hers so much she encouraged me to make them for other moms!

So I thought I'd see if there was an interest.  To my delight, the first manufacturer I sent it to made me an offer to buy.  However, because I felt like Skinies was my seventh baby, I sent it to a second manufacturer.  They said "it's adorable!" and agreed to make it for me.  I secured my patent and I was on my way!  After a couple of years and a lot of hard work, Skinies is
now available for all moms! I hope you are truly blessed in your breastfeeding and thank you for letting Skinies be a part of it!
