Honeylove is a Lightspeed-backed San Francisco DTC startup that designs and manufactures functional and stylish garments for women. We are profitable and were recently featured by The New York Times as one of the shapewear disrupters.
The inspiration for Honeylove came from our founder’s background as a musician and live singer.

She took a personal need for stage-worthy functional garments, and turned it into a brand that’s now serving women everywhere.
