bootaybagElly Gheno hopes the Sharks invest in BootayBag, her women’s underwear subscription box business, in Shark Tank episode 1202. Gheno started the business in 2015 after contemplating cancelling her BirchBox subscription due to low funds. At the time, she thought what she really needed was an underwear subscription box. She realized many women viewed shopping for underwear as a chore – including herself. So Elly did what any entrepreneur would do: she started BootayBag.

It’s pretty simple. For $15 a month you get 2 matching sets of bras and panties delivered. On the website, you pick size, and style (or opt to “mix things up”) and every month there are new undies in the mail. You can cancel at any time or add extra undies to a monthly order. There’s also a one set of undies per month option for $10.

Elly donates undies to The Undies Project, Period Kits, and other organizations to provide underwear for women in shelters. She’s spent a lot of effort creating an online community of women, too. She takes feedback on what they like and dislike as well as creating a “safe space” for discussing women’s issues. This approach earned her loyal customers and strengthens her brand. Elly hopes a Shark will want to partner with her to grow the business even more.
