embodied in our company and products
eberjey was born in 1996 from the belief that the layer worn next to the heart should express happiness, love and confidence all the things that make a woman truly beautiful. noticing a distinct lack of lingerie that spoke to this belief, co-founders ali mejia and mariela rovito, then colleagues at a global advertising agency, ventured to fill this void by creating pretty underthings that flattered real bodies and felt good too.
ali had always joked that someday she would design underwear for laterally challenged, flat-bottomed women like herself, so that's what eberjey did first. and thus, the boy short became a must-have item in well-stocked lingerie drawers everywhere. but that was just the beginning. thongs, bralets, and camis soon followed, along with pajamas, loungewear and swimwear as women fell in love with the girly-sexy-comfy style and look of eberjey.
eberjey has now grown from a beloved lingerie brand to an even-more beloved worldwide lifestyle brand. you¹ll find eberjey in upscale u.s. department stores and boutiques, as well as in europe, japan and canada. throughout its success and incredible journey, the ultimate eberjey goal remains the same: to create must-have pieces that express life, love, and above all joy!
