From Isis King and Lea T to Connie Fleming and Lauren Foster, there are more transgender and transsexual models working in fashion than ever before. So it’s high time the fashion industry, specifically the traditional world of lingerie, plays a little catch-up. Chrysalis Lingerie, a lingerie company devoted to transgender women, is aiming to do just that.

The idea, said Chrysalis’ co-founder Cy Lauz, was to make a product that would eliminate at least one of the stressful challenges facing trangender women. “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,” she told Lingerie Talk. “I wanted a product that actually celebrated who we are, something that made us feel beautiful but is also practical.”
