Richa Kar, founder and CEO, Zivame said, “Worldwide, lingerie is the most exciting category in the women’s apparel segment. The Indian woman, who is more confident than ever before is indulging herself in lingerie to express her individuality. She wants to look and feel good and has the economic independence to splurge on lingerie she never had access to before. Zivame is the catalyst of this change; using technology to understand her better and providing her an unsurpassed lingerie experience.”

“We are also proud to launch the first Indian lingerie app today. We want to empower women to shop their most intimate wear in the most intimate environment – their mobiles.” Richa said.
