Squish Stars: Lisa Mullan
The past number of months have been a whirlwind. Yet, there are some women entrepreneurs that are continuing to break the mold and shine like the stars they are! We're proud to introduce our Squish Stars campaign, highlighting incredible women entrepreneurs!
We were lucky to talk to Lisa Mullan, Co-Founder of Uwila Warrior, and ask her some questions.
Tell us about your business? How did you get started?
Lisa: Uwila Warrior makes comfortable, functional, beautiful underwear from size XXS to 4X so she has fewer wedgies and more kickin' ass. It all started in an underwear drawer, it really could have been almost any woman’s underwear drawer, but it was ours. It was filled with all kinds of underwear that shared a couple of commonalities: It was beautiful, and it didn’t fit. We asked, why can’t practical, comfortable underwear also be beautiful underwear?
We started Uwila Warrior to make underwear that didn’t require tugging at panty lines and suffering through bad underwear days. Underwear that was not about pleasing someone else, but instead celebrated a woman’s body. Underwear so comfortable, you couldn’t even tell it was there. Uwila Warrior was founded on one simple belief: Women shouldn’t have to twist their bodies and lifestyles into underwear that only fits sometimes – they should have unapologetically colorful, beautiful, and comfortable underwear that fits every moment of their lives. Uwila Warrior is for the woman who goes into the world smart and smiling, completely confident in who she is. Our products are an expression of freedom - featuring spirited colors, cheeky sayings, luxurious silk, and ornate lace. Because why does your underwear drawer have to be boring? It’s designed to fit around your body, to hug your every curve and is made with lightweight moisture wicking fabric to keep you cool and dry all day long.
