Kristin Bear has been in the intimates and sleepwear industry for about 15 years. After graduating from FIT in NYC, she worked for large intimate apparel companies in the city before relocating down to Miami to work for Cosabella, working her way up to Head of Design where she worked for many years. After having her first baby, she returned to work and shortly after decided to leave to start her own company- KILO BRAVA. She felt the intimates industry was missing designer styles at attainable pricing and more inclusive sizing. She sourced her own factories, designed every item, handled all the production, ran the creative etc! While she decided to take the leap out on her own from her stable job, she learned that she was pregnant with their second baby. While she built up and developed the KB brand, she was pregnant the whole way and launched about 2 days after coming home with their newborn baby girl. Since then, the brand has relocated to the Denver, CO area. The brand has grown and is being carried at countless boutiques throughout the USA & Canada. In addition, the brand is carried at Nordstrom, Free People, Playful Promises and more. KILO BRAVA also specializes in private label and collaborations as well.
About the Brand
KILO BRAVA offers ethically made, attainable luxury for the modern woman while providing versatility by blurring the lines between intimate apparel and ready-to-wear. All about comfort, sensuality, and the exquisitely feminine, KILO BRAVA is designed for the woman who knows her worth and loves gifting herself with special pieces. We’d like to offer all women the opportunity to nurture and embrace the muse within themselves. From dreamy, hand-rendered lace and embroidery to ultra soft luxe fabrics, each item is a treasure. All materials are sourced for their hand-feeling, beauty, and comfort, and we sought out top factories and artisans known for their handcrafted and time-honored techniques. We are dedicated to sustainable, thoughtful design & development. Our products are purposeful, which for us means they are unique, eco-friendly where possible, easy to care for, and size-inclusive. We produce every single style in sizes S-XXXL which translate to a size 4-22.
