My wonderful friend, Carrie, created the company Undersummers! Needless to say, I’m so incredibly proud of her. She’s done incredible in her business. Recently, I had the opportunity to work with a couple of beautiful models. I was able photograph some of Undersummer’s most recent products for their Sleep and Lounge collection.
A little backstory about Undersummers and CarrieRae
CarrieRae created her original Undersummer shortlette in 2011. She knew firsthand the need for functional and comfortable thigh protection. You see, Carrie, was a speech pathologist. She was working with small children sitting on the ground in her dresses. She wanted to dress professionally, comfortably and in something breathable as she lived in a hot climate. The hot summers in dresses was causing some thigh chaffing. Needless to say, it made working in dresses difficult. Out of discomfort, pain and need she created the functional stay-put-leg Shortlette. These Shortlettes allowed her legs to breath. Designed for style, they were cute enough that if they peeked out from under a dress she’d still meet the dress code for work. Also, comfort was a must. Most of all, the shortlettes solved her thigh chaffing problem!
Over the years
Over the years, Carrie has expanded her Undersummers collections. Having recently talked to Carrie herself, I know even more exciting things are on their way. Also, Undersummers now offers products for women, girls, even maternity options. The newer Sleep and Lounge collection is amazing.
Having the opportunity to photograph some of these products and see them firsthand is nice. I know the quality of her products and know that these items are super comfortable. In addition, I own several pairs of Shortlette’s myself. I love them for under dresses and especially for pajamas.
One of the things I like best about CarrieRae and Undersummers is how body positive and supportive of women she and her company is. I feel it’s extremely important to lift women up and support each other. Lastly, feel free to check out the Undersummers website and see for yourself!
