Chrysalis is a New York City based lingerie brand. It was co-founded in 2010 by Cy Lauz as
a means to develop a line of lingerie specifically for transgender women. Chrysalis offers
lingerie that helps to resolve issues of the transgender experience so you can concentrate on
more important things, -you! Along with our exquisitely made lingerie, Chrysalis offers a
peace of mind. Chrysalis offers various products including our Chrysalis Enhancers™ bras
that hold full cup silicone inserts that create a natural looking bust line and our T-string™
that effectively tuck, hold, and smooth out, the panty line for that perfect seamless look.
Chrysalis will officially launch it’s online e-commerce website on May 1, 2013.
Chrysalis came about to alleviate a primary stress and issue for transgender women. In the
greater scope, Chrysalis was created to help change the dehumanizing stereotypes and biases
transgender people are subjected to as a group and community. Chrysalis symbolizes the
acknowledgment of our existence and provides a solution to our specific needs. As a brand,
Chrysalis takes transgender women beyond stereotypes and represents them as beautiful
intelligent women with prowess and the embodiment of feminine sensuality.
Cy Lauz says, “I think every woman, trans or not face challenges when trying to find
undergarments. All women come in different shapes and sizes; have particular tastes, wants,
and needs. But as Trans women, we have very specific needs unique to our experience. The
obvious are finding ways to create a natural looking bust line and ways to "tuck"
comfortably, all the while keeping our dignity and sense of self in tact.
