The Company: 
We’re True&Co. We’re changing the way women shop, starting with the most uncomfortable shopping experience for women everywhere - bra shopping. We are growing a personalized shopping experience for every customer. Our 2-minute quiz and personal shop is powered by an algorithm and recommendation system that matches women to the right items – all without a measuring tape. 

Yes, working in lingerie is as exciting as it sounds. We launched at D10 in May 2012 and Good Morning America featured us the very next day. Early demand has been incredible and continues to grow given the near-universal appeal of bras for our customers.
