100% of profits go towards arming women with panties

On March 8th, 100% of our profits from sales will be donated to Dress for Success!

Here’s my story…

When I was a little girl, I never thought I would start a company. I always had a different answer for “what do you what to be when you grow up?” and my future goals felt unspecific.  I grew up with a desire to learn but never explicitly to lead. 

When I was 23, I was fortunate enough to work in a big company with many career paths.  That being said, I knew that I eventually wanted to end up doing something that would be more impactful for the world. 

It led me to return back to my resume and start the interviewing process again.  It was hard.  Let’s face it, anytime you’re starting a new career path, things are not going to be easy.  Crafting your resume and interviewing for jobs are specialized skills that take practice.  The good news is that they are skills that can be learned and improved over time, and I was fortunate to have friends and mentors that could show me how, practice with me, and give me feedback.

Eventually, I ended up taking the bold step in starting Panty Drop, but even then when it came to raising capital for my company I found it harder than my male counterparts.

The gender leadership gap is a topic I care deeply about. As a rising executive and now leader of my own company, I want to see more opportunities for women to take on leadership and executive roles.  That’s why we created the Panty Drop Giving Program, and why we chose Dress for Success to be one of our partners.

Dress for Success has a mission that is deeply aligned well with ours — through resume feedback and interview preparation, they are supporting women looking for a new professional opportunities that don’t have all of the resources to get there. Feeling confident and “put together” is critical for your interview and first days in a new job, and Dress for Success not only teaches these skills, but also makes sure every client has a work-ready wardrobe!   I am also personally volunteering at DFS and on the ground working with women one-on-one.

Panties are an important part of that and we happily donate a box to every DFS client who has a successful placement. In addition, we’re teaming up with DFS for International Women’s Day 2020 and donating 100% of our profits on March 8. I hope you’ll consider supporting us!


We encourage you to do something to celebrate…march, post, talk about what it means for today to be International Women’s Day!

Sincerely, Julie (Founder and CEO of Panty Drop)

Our Three Fave Things About Taylor Swift’s Lover Video

It’s no secret that Taylor Swift has ruled the hearts and minds of every millennial and Gen Z’er since she first picked up a guitar and sang us Tim McGraw 13 years ago. Most of us 20 to 30-somethings grew up with her at every important stage of our life: from teenage heartbreak, growing pains, and in the good times and bad. Her voice is the soundtrack to multiple generations, and that rings true even today. We are, of course, head over heels for her latest album, most notably her newest video, Lover! She hit the nail right on the head with this one, and we wanted to share our 3 favorite things about this dynamite piece of art.

1. The Cat painting in the house

If you know anything about Taylor, you know 2 her cats Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey are everything to her. She recently adopted a 3rd kitty, a Siamese named Benjamin Button, whose cute face, we can only assume, is pictured here in her fairytale house. We love how her quirky personality shines through in her videos. Every little detail is a message, and we’ll take all the cat photos, please.

2. Diversity

WE LOVE THIS! In 2019, it’s all about representation. Not only is Taylor’s lover a man of color, but their entire love story pans out in the eyes of their gorgeous daughter. Our very favorite part of this is that we know young people are watching Taylor’s every move, and representing multiple races and ethnicities speaks wonders to the latest generation of young people looking for their place in the world. THANK. 👏YOU. 👏TAYLOR. 👏

3. Love conquers all

Arguably one of the most important messages in Taylor’s new album is that Love is everything. No matter where you find it, who you find it with, or even if it’s for your cat, love is the center of the human experience. Love is home. It’s a place we all look for in someone else, and Taylor captures it so vividly in Lover.

We appreciate an artist like Taylor who always carefully tailors her messaging to strike the hearts of those she knows are listening. If you’re like us and got all the feels watching this technicolor masterpiece unfold with its equally vibrant messaging, let us know!

Bravo, Taylor!



Go ahead, take all the space you need

My closet is filled with devices, lifts, and appendages to make me take up less space or more space.

Those dusty heels taking up space on the top shelf of my closet? Those are to make me taller and take up more space vertically. The girdle (yes, I own a girdle) stuffed in the back of my underwear drawer? That’s to compress my waist and make me an “acceptable” type of curvy so that I can take up less space horizontally.

Please, Somebody Buy Me Panties

This post was originally published on the Reno Mom’s Blog by Megan Duggan.

I hate buying underwear.

I hate it so much that I have made other people for the majority of my life buy them for me. From ages 0-18, it was a given that my parents provided me underwear whether it was back to school shopping or a Christmas stocking stuffer. As a broke college student, I asked my parents to continue to buy me underwear with my preference in mind. Post-graduation? I stayed with the trend and kept underwear on the top of my Christmas list.

Celebrating Dads – A Spotlight on Great Parental Leave Policies

Time off after a new baby isn’t just for moms. Check out these companies recognizing dads too

When I started my first job after school, I was always surprised that in casual chats, my male co-workers were generally more enthusiastic about having children than my female ones. From the women, it was common to hear things like “I’d like to have a family, but I’m worried about how it will affect my career,” or “I’ve always planned to have children, but I’d like to be an executive, too.” As ladies, it seemed we had grown up internalizing a trade off between our professional dreams and our family ones, a tradeoff that wasn’t top-of-mind for the men. Is it any wonder? Close to a third of new moms don’t return to work after their babies, and up until recently, dads were left out of the conversation about family leave. Paid paternity leave is still rare to find, and even more rarely used. But the arrival of a new baby is incredibly demanding for both moms and dads, and bonding is just as important for both parents. Today, in honor of Father’s Day, we’re shining a spotlight on companies that are leading the way with inclusive, generous family leave policies. Continue reading

Making your Periods Better with Ellebox & Panty Drop

Periods & panties don’t need to be adversaries! Let’s change the way you experience that time of the month

Sure, that time of the month isn’t our favorite either. Probably the only thing we hate more than underwear shopping is shopping for pads and tampons. It’s awkward to pick them up at the drugstore and annoying to have it as an item on your to-do list. More importantly though, it’s hard to find organic pads and tampons in the store. Organic pads and tampons are made of 100% cotton and are biodegradable.  They don’t include any of the toxic ingredients in mainstream products, so they’re better for your health. That’s why we love Ellebox – they’re making it easy for you to get organic feminine products delivered to your door, monthly. We’re going behind the scenes with the Ellebox co-founder Bunny Ghatrora to learn more about their story. Continue reading

Equal Pay: Yep, We Still Don’t Earn a Man’s Dollar

5 ways to combat the gender pay gap for Equal Pay Day

Getting a new job offer is usually a good thing. It means you passed the interview, beat out other candidates, and have a new beginning to look forward to. But before you sign on the dotted line and get ready for your first day, there’s some things you should know about your compensation. The data is in, and ladies, there’s a serious gender pay gap: Women are paid, on average, 20% less than men (and it’s worse for women of color). That’s a big difference. Over a career, it amounts to over $500,000 for the average woman, and up to $1,000,000 for a Hispanic woman. Moreover, even with current progress, it’ll still take another 44 years before we close the pay gap in the United States (and until the 24th century for all women). Angry? We are too. That’s why we assembled a few things you can do about it. Continue reading

Giving Spotlight: Girls on the Run – Sierras

Learn about the newest partner of the Panty Drop Giving Program

At Panty Drop, we believe we have a responsibility to use our business to inspire and develop the next generation of female leaders. That’s why we joined Pledge 1% and started a Giving Program to donate 1% of revenue, employee time and products sold to nonprofits that are helping close the gender leadership gap. Since we launched the program last year, we’ve been building it out and we’re excited to announce our newest giving partner: Girls on the Run – Sierras, our local council of the national Girls on the Run organization. We couldn’t be more excited to have them as our partner for our revenue and employee volunteering donations. Continue reading

Are your intimates worth the price?

How to shop for quality underwear, and why it matters

Upgrading your underwear gets an A+ in our book for several reasons. First, you’re clothing some pretty sensitive, and sacred parts of your body. In fact, if you’re familiar with the ultra cool Mama Gena and her new book, this part of a woman’s body is responsible for her power. And when it’s treated well and taken care of, you can tap into that power in a big way. Plus, underwear is with you all day – as you work, work out, meet with clients, meet a new Tinder date, volunteer, and conquer the world. So that means wearing those worn thin, stretched out, stained underwear is not helping you step up as the superwoman you are. But we know that shopping for great quality underwear isn’t always the easiest – how do you actually know if it’s worth the price? Continue reading
