Jia+Kate FAQ

Commonly asked questions about this female-founded brand.


Jia+Kate was created to be the most comfortable, functional, beautiful braless-feeling apparel. 

Each top features an underlayer that is invisible beneath the top, and it simply drapes over the bust with soft foam inserts that can be adjusted for perfect positioning.

There is no restriction or support from the under layer. It simply drapes over to smooth and camoflauge, giving the illusion of wearing a cup bra, with the feeling of a soft, loose T-shirt.

It's the best option for feeling complete freedom with enough coverage to feel confident.

Dreamy fabric. Perfect coverage. NO ELASTIC. NO SHELF BRA.

Although some "slow fashion" can be described as garments made-to-order, that's not necessarily the only kind.

"Slow fashion" is a garment production ethos and process opposite to that of the "fast fashion" industry. "Fast fashion" attempts to mass-produce high quantities of low quality product as quickly and cheaply as possible to suit a certain trend (often with unethical labor practices).

"Slow fashion" aims to produce a quality, timeless styled product, built with durability to last, by highly trained workers who are treated and paid ethically for their skill and labor.

Just a stepmom who wanted to lounge in comfort. I'm launching my dream of bringing this luxury to all. I'm pretty camera-shy, but you can see more of my story here.

Product FAQ

Note that there is no bust support or containment with the Jia+Kate top. Because the inner layer merely drapes over the bust with soft cups that hang in place, the Jia+Kate top should feel like nothing more than a luxuriously soft shirt. It merely looks like there is coverage.

Put on your Jia+Kate top and scoot the pads up/down/right/left inside the inner layer to center the coverage for your chest.

Then... relax! It may take a few wears to get used to the feeling of complete freedom. (i.e., it might be a few days before you stop reflexively crossing your arms!)

Jia+Kate apparel is made from 95% bamboo, 5% spandex blend. Machine wash cold, gentle cycle. For best longevity of the cup pads, it is best to remove the cups from the inner layer before washing, and hang to dry. Cool iron when needed. Do not bleach.
