We wonder if the company CEO also volunteered!
That's right, volunteer as in "free!"
Not cool. Especially since many salaried employees already work longer than 40 hours a week without getting paid more.

This is BRILLIANT and it's about time, too!
Chrysalis Lingerie is a brand new lingerie brand catering specifically to transgender women and their unique needs.
The company's mission statement says:
"Our elegant bras and panties are made with luxurious fabrics seductively designed to make you feel beautiful! Bras made to hold custom full-cup inserts and panties that effectively tuck, hold, and smooth out for the perfect seamless look."
Cy Lauz, the company's co-founder, explained:
"A lot of women have been waiting a long time for something like this. 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 company plans to launch this spring and for now the line includes bra-and-panty sets that come in five different colors: black, ivory, olive green, aubergine, and red.
The T-string panty creates a seamless look by using a special panel for tucking, and the bra includes hidden pockets in the cup to allow for bust-enhancing inserts.
We think this is going to be immensely helpful for transgender women, and we wish the company all the success in the world!
