MiNudes: Providing More Shapewear Options for Women of ColorFor many women of color, finding suitable skin-tone shapewear has not been an option. Frustrated by the lack of skin-tone choices for all women of color, Founder Denyse Ray decided it was time for women of color to celebrate their shapewear with their own colors.

Inspired by her own need and, the need of every woman of color that she knew, Denyse took a leap of faith and created MiNudes.

What motivated you to start your own company?

I wanted to give women another option in shapewear and also focus on true nude colors designed specifically for women of color.

What’s so special about your business?

My product is made entirely in the US and as difficult as it is to manufacture domestically, I continue to produce my shapewear line through the multitude of challenges.

How will you use Bravo?

To increase visibility of my product for more sales.

Congratulations, Denyse! We wish you the best and are pleased to include you on our growing list of Bravo Startup Sweepstakes winners!
