Made by women for women, Dear Kate is a new kind of apparel designed with our Underlux fabric, which protects better than regular underwear.


Recognizing that most lingerie cannot keep up with a woman’s body, chemical engineer Julie Sygiel knew there had to be a better alternative to “period panties” and embarrassing mishaps.  So she hit the lab and developed the silky-soft, patent-pending fabric behind each pair of Dear Kates.  Made in NYC, each pair is wicking, stain releasing, and leak-resistant—preparing you for everything from cardio to just another day with aunt flo.


Our mission is to give women the confidence to do anything by equipping them with apparel that’s up for the challenge.

The New Standard

Feel good about
your underwear.

Check yourself out, and know that you look like a million bucks under your jeans all day.

Take back
your period.

Rock those white pants, and quit soaking and scrubbing, Cinderella!

Laugh til you
pee your pants.

And strut your stuff safely...
we've got your butt covered.


Your best friend always has your back, but why not your underwear?
It’s time our underpinnings stepped up to the challenge.
We’re deconstructing delicates and starting a lingerie liberation.
Dear Kate creates revolutionary underthings because we think a quick getaway
should be the last thing on your mind. You’re got things to do.
So shimmy, hop, stomp, romp and do your thing.
We’ve got you covered.
