BECOME PART OF A BRAND THAT MAKES WOMEN FEEL SAFE AND POWERFUL

INVEST IN GRACEDBYGRIT

We founded GRACEDBYGRIT in 2013 after training together for a triathlon in San Diego. While training, we recognized that active women like us, 30 to 60 years old, need to feel safe, confident and powerful in order to perform their best. Together, we saw an enormous opportunity to change the way a woman feels when she wears and buys athletic apparel. What we needed to look and perform our best wasn’t out there so we designed it ourselves. In just four years of business, we’ve generated over $2.8 million in revenue, sold 50,000 pieces of apparel and formed close relationships with over 40,000 loyal customers. When a woman wears GRACEDBYGRIT, she feels like she is part of something bigger and is inspired to become her best self. 

 

When it came to naming our company, we wanted a name that would resonate with all women. Every woman has experienced that life event she fears will break her. We both overcame very tough experiences that forced us to learn what we were truly made of. How we make it through these moments defines us. Our grittiest moments give us our grace; every woman has been GRACEDBYGRIT.

 

We proudly design and manufacture our product in the USA, minutes from our office and flagship store in Solana Beach, CA. We import the most luxurious, high-performance, technical fabrics from Italy to give our clothes a unique feel and fit. Our clothes are designed for every body type, work for land and sea and keep you safe. All of our clothing has integrated UPF 50+ and comes with a detachable safety whistle. The whistle can be securely looped on any piece of GRACEDBYGRIT apparel. 


We continue to show why we’re different. Our customers feel like they’re a part of our company’s story and mission when they wear our clothing. We primarily sell direct to consumer and focus on the sense of community every woman is looking for. After seeing how great an outfit makes them look and feel, many of our customers immediately tell their friends and post about us on social media. Word-of-mouth marketing contributes to the majority of our sales; women value the opinion of other women. Our strong online sales, 60% of which come from new visitors, are driven by Fit Shops (trunk shows) we host and the connection our customers make to GRACEDBYGRIT at these events.


Our customers want more GRACEDBYGRIT. With our make-it-happen attitude and premium products designed for safety, we are positioned to grow our company by changing the way women feel about buying and wearing athletic apparel. We recognize women have enormous spending power and want to invest in companies whose values resonate with their own. 


We understand what it takes to be a woman. We celebrate the strength and power behind every woman’s gritty moment. We are breaking the glass ceiling and proving that women can successfully found, run and fund impactful companies. We want you to help us make history; invest in GRACEDBYGRIT now and make a real difference in the lives of women.

"Enter GRACEDBYGRIT. Makers of what I call "the Spanx of tights."" - The Huffington Post

ATHLETIC APPAREL DESIGNED TO EMPOWER AND KEEP WOMEN SAFE

GRACEDBYGRIT is a direct-to-consumer premium athletic apparel brand. The technical, luxurious clothing is designed for the 30-60 year old woman who is looking for better fit, fabric and design. All clothing is UPF 50+, made in the USA and every purchase comes with a safety whistle. Most of all, the design is elegant and makes women look and feel fantastic.


We design based on what we love and what our customers want. We fill a void of what’s not on the market, constructing clothes that have safety features and allow you to perform (and look) your best. Items in our wardrobe that we’ve loved for years, but weren’t designed as athletic apparel, are our biggest inspiration. We adjust the fit of our favorite items (that fit extremely well and have lasted for many years) but use technical, high-performance fabric to make them GRACEDBYGRIT. We make clothing that works for all athletic endeavors.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

We stand out from our competitors. We prioritize safety. We make our clothes in Southern California. Our clothing is designed by women, for women. 


We directly oversee every step of the production process to ensure our clothes are great for women of all ages, sizes and body types. Our community is strong: we have doctors, nurses, violinists, lawyers, yoga instructors and teachers, many of whom are moms, wearing our clothing all around the world. 


We rely on community-based marketing showcasing authentic, strong women. Our models are our employees, influencers and customers. Women engaging with our social media pages can relate to our posts because they know our models are women just like them. Our inspirational blog posts feature the most influential women. This blog serves as a touchpoint for our community and a source of motivation and inspiration for our customers.


Our fabrics are superior; they are woven from technically advanced materials and designed with innovative features. We receive high praise from our customers, who report solely shopping GRACEDBYGRIT for their athletic apparel needs once they see and feel the difference. Our fabrics are technical, functional, versatile and durable; they hold up during any athletic endeavor and are guaranteed to last for many years, and through many washes. 


We are an engaging, supportive and inclusive brand; our community drives our business. We host Fit Shops and pop-up shops around the country to bring GRACEDBYGRIT to women everywhere. We also frequently host events at our flagship store in Solana Beach, CA. These events include workouts, health seminars and networking nights. They attract new, loyal customers and and provide a sense of community for our existing customers. 


Women love to be part of the GRACEDBYGRIT story.

ENGAGED COMMUNITY OF WOMEN 30-60

We have a loyal, engaged community of women and influencers. Customers tag us in photos on social media on a daily basis, wearing GRACEDBYGRIT as they travel the world. 

MADE IN USA

We love to give back to our community and local economy. Manufacturing in the USA allows us to create new styles quickly that are of the highest quality. It also allows us, and our customers, to reduce our carbon footprint.

SIZES XXS-XXL

We design for all types of women and body types. We understand women’s bodies and know what we need to look and perform our best. We have a wide range of fit models who perform different sports and have different athletic builds.

SUSTAINABLE FABRICS

We know you care about how your clothing is made, and so do we. In 2016, we launched our first sustainable products: the Reel ‘Em In Capri (made from recycled fishing nets) and the Chelsea Legging (made from recycled water bottles) and are working to source even more sustainable fabric.

SAFETY FEATURES

  • Every purchase comes with a detachable, high-pitched, discrete safety whistle. This whistle can be attached on all items of GRACEDBYGRIT apparel

  • Each item of GRACEDBYGRIT has built-in UPF 50+ so you’re always protected in the sun

  • All bottoms, including shorts, skirts, capris and leggings, have pockets in both the front and back to accommodate a smart phone, whistle and keys 

  • Our new pockets fit an iPhone 7 Plus. You’ll always have your phone and whistle on you while exercising 

"You feel super badass and all slimmed up in GRACEDBYGRIT." - Customer

OUR COMMUNITY

We have an extremely engaged community. We have over 400 brand influencers wearing our clothes all around the world. They are a big part of our business: they inspire our designs, how we serve the community and where we travel for Fit Shops and pop-up stores. We have over 40,000 loyal customers. We stay engaged with our customers through social media, Fit Shops and local events. We love hearing from our customers and have weekly production meetings to discuss feedback and suggestions we receive. With our store next door to our office, we meet new customers daily.

Jazmine Amelia, Age 32

"Shopping for plus size athletic wear for my size 16 frame usually makes me feel defeated and deflated, but at GRACEDBYGRIT, shopping makes me feel like enough and simply empowered! I am stoked to support a local women’s apparel brand that flatters my every curve, uses quality material, and motivates me to keep active. When I feel good, I do good!"

Maggie Adams, Age 55

"I started my mobile stand-up paddle board business in Carlsbad, CA 4 years ago. Around the same time I joined GRACEDBYGRIT’s Influencer Program. I’m constantly on the water coaching, standup racing, or standup surfing. GRACEDBYGRIT apparel provides me with UV protection and comfort on and off the water. I’m a fair skin red head, so their sun protection is very important to me. I love promoting a quality product for my customers."

Margie Berliant, Age 65

"I wear GRACEDBYGRIT every day running my grandchildren around, I wear it to play paddle tennis, I wear it in the summer in place of a bathing suit. I wear it everywhere! I like how well it washes, how flattering it is, and how I’ve had the same leggings since 2013 and they still look like new. I love how I feel in GRACEDBYGRIT because the fit is great and I do not feel dowdy."

Beth Steele, Age 39

“I am a mom of two and a breast cancer survivor. When I heard the story of GRACEDBYGRIT, I too felt that I have been GRACEDBYGRIT and am stronger having battled that cancer demon. Women need to continue to work together in sisterhood for causes integral to our survival! I am proud to wear apparel from a company that supports important women's causes. For two years in a row, GRACEDBYGRIT helped support my cause and donated thousands of dollars to Susan G Komen to help find the cure for breast cancer!”

Diana Boeh, Age 54

"I love my GRACEDBYGRIT clothes because of the variety of bright colors and versatility. I wear them hiking, skiing, in the ocean and to work out. I have been supporting the company since Day One, as I have known Co-Founder Kimberly Caccavo since high school. It has been both special and fun for me to watch GRACEDBYGRIT grow over time and expand their amazing line."

Heather Kent, Age 35

"My favorite part of GRACEDBYGRIT is that not only is it high quality clothing that I can wear to both workout and in social settings but the women behind the brand make this more of a family than just another clothing company."

Yumi Cho, Age 34

"I simply love everything about GRACEDBYGRIT - the message behind its name, the strong team of women, the quality of the clothing... and the list goes on forever. GRACEDBYGRIT has been a surprisingly wonderful addition to my rehearsal wardrobe at work. Playing the violin in a professional orchestra requires a lot of time spend sitting down, so the compression aspect works like magic for those long haul rehearsals! You'll never see me in the middle of any outdoor activity without one article of GRACEDBYGRIT on my body."

Sue Beckett, Age 44

“I love everything about GRACEDBYGRIT - the clothes, the community, the social conscience. The clothes are super comfortable, wear well (no pilling like other activewear) and always look great. The GRACEDBYGRIT team exemplifies women empowering women. They are the real deal. And, the company’s social conscience reflects this - leggings made from recycled water bottles and fishing nets, charitable actions and support for many charitable causes including Chelsea’s Light Foundation. Plus, as a Canadian, I am so excited that GRACEDBYGRIT is expanding to Canada!”

Courtney Brickner, Age 39

“I am a personal trainer and my job is to help women feel healthy, strong and better about themselves. It's important that my life represents what I try to teach. When I wear GRACEDBYGRIT, I feel confident because the clothes fit perfectly and they are always comfortable; which is a requirement in my profession. I'm happy to be affiliated with a company that makes EVERY woman look and feel good no matter what "gritty" situation they have been through.”

Emily Goethel, Age 27

“I love supporting GRACEDBYGRIT because they support women like me! GRACEDBYGRIT is active in our business community, they support our local artists and athletes and they love women of all shapes and sizes. As a dancer, the GRACEDBYGRIT apparel is PERFECT for high kicks and lots of sweat!”

Julia Fukuhara, Age 34

"GRACEDBYGRIT is one of my favorite companies. It also happens to be an incredible clothing line. Their clothing is truly suited for every woman. From lifestyle looks to high performance competitive sports wear, you cannot go wrong with any article of clothing. The fabrics are bold colors and refined so they hold shape and lasts. They have real sizes for real women. GRACEDBYGRIT empowers women to look, feel, and do their best with whatever drives their passion in life."

Lynn Tardif, Age 47

"I am so completely grateful to GRACEDBYGRIT for choosing real women to represent their brand. I love every single piece I own from GRACEDBYGRIT. They somehow have blended beautiful classic pieces with high functionality and amazing fit. The company stands by its values and supports many causes. They are the real deal."

THE WOMEN'S ATHLETIC APPAREL INDUSTRY

Women are more active than ever. They are going to the gym, practicing yoga, running marathons, completing triathlons, stand-up paddling and more in record numbers. Women 30-60 years old have enormous spending power (and power in general) and deeply care about health and fitness. They are willing to spend money on what makes them feel confident. In the recent years, there has been a societal shift toward less formal fashion styles, according to Morgan Stanley. Healthy living and active lifestyles are impacting not only our exercise habits, but how we dress. The athletic apparel industry is booming because activewear makes life easier. You can wear stylish and elegant GRACEDBYGRIT pieces all day long from a business meeting to the gym to a beachside dinner. 


According to a report from Lightspeed, 80% of women have purchased activewear in the last year. It’s not a trend or a niche and there are no signs of this industry slowing down. 

73% of women say running horror stories have inspired them to run with a phone - Runner's World

Due to concerns about safety or unwanted attention, the same study reported 60% of women say they limit their runs to daylight hours and 52% say they are forced to change running routes. 43% of women have experienced harassment while on a run, compared with just 4% of men. Many women feel unsafe while they are exercising. We want women to never have to sacrifice doing what they love. That’s why safety is at the forefront of our business.

BY WOMEN, FOR WOMEN

GRACEDBYGRIT is a women owned and run San Diego-based company that has created an inclusive community of women who empower one another. Women design, sew and proudly wear GRACEDBYGRIT. At the core of our strong community are our employees, who are passionate, intelligent and driven; the community extends to our athletic influencers, who are doctors, lawyers, mothers, violinists, fitness instructors, teachers and businesswomen. The focus on safety, authenticity and women in the prime of their life resonates with our customer. We showcase these authentic, strong women throughout all of our marketing. Our models are our employees, influencers and customers. 


The GRACEDBYGRIT customer is 30-60 years old. She is educated, sophisticated, active, fun, competitive and fearless. She is confident and tough. She is a mother; she is a professional; she is an athlete. She often balances a busy family life with a demanding work schedule but still makes time for herself and her passions. She travels. She goes on family vacations. She needs pieces in her wardrobe that will work with her and for her wherever she is.

We manufacture in Southern California. We work diligently to ensure quality products.

We use our team, friends and influencers as fit models so our designs fit all body types. 

We want our customers to feel strong, confident and safe in our clothes.

OUR TEAM

Our employees are talented and passionate. They are dedicated moms, professionals, executives and recent college graduates. 

Our team is committed to making GRACEDBYGRIT a profitable company and the go-to athletic apparel brand for women aged 30-60 years old.

HOW CHELSEA KING CONTINUES TO INSPIRE GRACEDBYGRIT

The seed for GRACEDBYGRIT was planted when Kimberly and Kate met seven years ago training for a triathlon in honor of Chelsea King, a 17-year-old girl who was brutally murdered while running a trail by herself. She had no way to attract attention, no whistle or phone, no way to inform others of her plight. Chelsea’s tragedy inspired us to design clothing that makes women feel safe. We include a safety whistle with each and every product and incorporate pockets into our waistbands to accommodate a smartphone. No woman or girl should feel scared while exercising. 


We support the incredible work of Chelsea’s Light Foundation, which was founded by Chelsea’s parents to create the strongest laws in the country to protect children against known violent predators. We have created a Chelsea Collection in honor of Chelsea, including the Chelsea Legging, the Chelsea Capri and the Chelsea Headband. We donate a percentage of proceeds from the collection to Chelsea's Light Foundation. We are inspired by Chelsea and the grit and grace of her family every day; her light will forever be a part of our story.
