What is your customer seeking?
LJ shapewear will be an online shapewear boutique with Colombian influence, but in an American market, which will provide high-quality shapewear in a wide range of sizes and styles such as: Body Briefs, Control Camisoles, Corsets, Body Shapers and others, with exceptional tech support and immediate responded to our customer questions. The store will be connected to different social networks, this brand is thought of as a result of the need that I see every day in the Nordstrom lingerie department, where women look for their body to look better and more molded when wearing a dress, pants, etc. where the demographic data are suitably exclusive. It is based on the gables coral sector, where women, because of the need to look better and the lack of knowledge of the Colombian shapewear market, buy the only brand available in the store, which is not the one that gives shape and shape to the figure.
The shapewear market is driven by factors such as the increase in sports and fitness activities and the growing beauty conscious population. Other factors that drive this market include the self-confidence that clothing provides. Specifically, the purpose of the strips is to help reshape the body as desired, which includes flattening the lumps, lifting the flaccidity and straightening the body posture.
This market is becoming popular with women every day, with more women yearning for a toned and physical aesthetic appearance without going to the gym and dieting due to lack of time and work pressure. Light fabrics evolved in garment design, celebrity brand attributes to the growing demand for moldings among women.

STORY AND VALUES SPEAK ABOUT YOUR CHARACTER: WHAT DRIVES YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS?
1. Write down your top 3 core values.
2. Underneath each value, write down the experience(s) that led you to adopt or consciously appreciate that value.
EMOTION 1 – Customer would return it on to find out that there was some return/Exchange policy that would prevent them from being able to return or exchange a product that they were not completely satisfied with. This is why Integrity is one of LJ Shapewear core values. We want you to be 100% satisfied with your product.
EMOTION 2 – I was shopping one day for myself. The salesperson that was assisting me was probably not having a good day. Unfortunately, she was very rude and really had a lack of knowledge about bra fittings. This experience led to the idea that in my work and professional business career I needed to be a professional and I wanted to ensure that LJ Shapewear always presented its customer with professionalism.
EMOTION 3 – Working with women of all shape and sizes. There was a time I needed to be honest with my customer and tell them that a bra that they were trying just didn’t give them the best look. Even though I lost a sale. They appreciated the honesty. And knew that I was working to ensure that they look their best at all times. They later came back and asked for me to assist them with their next sale.
