How Empress Athleticus was created
Established by Brittany Lewin (aka B) and Kristy Perdriau on the 13th of March 2021.
Kristy and B both wanted a product for ALL women that was breathable, squat proof, and offered low tummy control with no camel toe.
“We all deserve to feel comfortable and confident! Our aim was to create ethical products that added a little confidence to every outfit, but as time went on, we realised how many women didn’t have an opportunity to buy activewear, and we now aim to fit ALL women. We are always growing as a brand and have added new sizes since launch and now offer a size 6 to 30+”
- Brittany Lewin
Made by women for women
For us, our mission encapsulates your body, mind, and spirit. Our company values you, our customer. Everything we do in our business is to help women look better, think better, and feel better, inside and out.
We want to increase your confidence, enable you to be happy in your own skin, and create quality, breathable activewear that is designed with you in mind. Clothing you love. Clothing you’re comfortable in.
No matter your shape or size, there’s no shame in being you.
We employ locally and will continue to provide employment opportunities to Australian women. With Empress Athleticus, women can create independence, form friendships, learn new skills and receive opportunities for alignment and happiness.
“Work with women who will ‘fill your cup’ and replenish your energy.”
- Kristy Perdriau
More than just comfortable activewear
One of the biggest reasons why Brittany and Kristy decided to partner with each other was their shared love of giving back to their community. They are both dedicated to using their combined platforms to give a voice to other women in our community that can help, educate and bring awareness to important issues that affect us as women.
“Being supported by a kind and encouraging community inside the Empress Queendom reinforces self-love and body positivity.”
- Kristy Perdriau
Meet Our Directors...
"I never dreamt about success, I worked for it. Working for 19 years as a lawyer, I’ve built an empire working long hours and putting everyone else first. I’d known for years that I needed a change of pace and scene and an opportunity for alignment and happiness. With the help and support of my husband, Sam, I am now focussing on all of the other areas that I am so passionate about; teaching and entrepreneurship – creating value and opportunities that translate invention to innovation, helping people to feel better, look better, and think better, inside and out.
After the birth of my two children, I realised that there was a huge void in the market, where women who didn’t fit the “perfect body” mould didn’t have comfortable, stylish, or honestly just well-fitting clothing.
I wanted to create a solution with a massive impact and have the ability to create custom products where I could guarantee the quality right here in Australia. I wanted to transform the way people feel about themselves and their bodies and lead the way in making clothing for comfort that fits every shape. Clothing you can work out in, go shopping in, pick up the kids in, clothing that makes you look and feel good, clothing that’s versatile.
We’re all on different journeys and we’ll do things in our own time and that's ok. We're all perfectly imperfect."
Meet our Directors...
"When I was asked as a child: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was never conventional. I always knew I wanted to make a change, but at that point, I had no idea how.
As I grew up, I felt pressured by society to be "successful" and I thought that "success" was determined by how much money or things I had. So I did what most of us do, and sacrificed my health by working extremely long and stressful years to do whatever was necessary to be "Successful". But for what? I had no life, my mental health was all over the place and my hormones were completely out of sync.
It was time to make a change and focus on my WHY.
I left a General Manager position at a fashion brand I grew for 7 long years and started to rebuild what was important to me, whilst surrounding myself with good positive people.
My goal is to inspire and teach women to build their own paths... To feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, and to create true success in their own lives.
"Hustle Culture" is a thing of the past. Being successful is based on freedom and happiness... And right now, I am happy, I am healthy and I am free to do what makes me feel truly fulfilled."
let's talk sustainability...
Sustainability is very important to us and we know that it is important to our customers as well.
