The story of MUSA
Women often experience the discomfort of uncomfortable lingerie and lingerie brands. That strap, which leaves red marks on your hip or shoulder, that string that chafes around your intimate areas, or that fabric that irritates your vagina. You notice these inconveniences all day long, it demands your attention, which you would rather not spend. In addition, the unrealistic beauty ideal displayed on the platforms of these lingerie brands and the irritations mentioned above, not only makes you feel uncomfortable, but also insecure.
