Breezies Intimates, launched more than 10 years ago, started — and remains — a family affair. Kathy, who was then a fashion merchandiser, created her line of undergarments with her husband Craig, who was a panty manufacturer. Today, Kathy’s two daughters are now involved in the business and have designed their own lines.
Ever watched QVC? One of QVC’s best selling products is Breezies Intimates, a line of undergarments created by Kathy Gendel. Breezies Intimates is a wide range of undergarments sold exclusively by QVC.
What sets the Breezies apart is the patented fabric used in panties and bra linings. More than underwear-as-sexy-objects pitch like Victoria Secret, Breezies positions itself as an underwear that addresses women concerns on odor control, staining and feminine issues. And the products have gained a huge customer base, becoming one of QVC’s favorite products.
Kathy’s approach to business is “slow but sure” and never trying to grow too quickly — a strategy that worked well for this millionaire mom and her family.
