Harper Wilde started with one question: Why are bras so expensive? That led to more questions about the frankly absurd way women shop for bras, and Harper Wilde was born. Not only do they create everyday bras for actual women, but they also invest in the education and future of the next generation of strong women.

CO-FOUNDERS OF HARPER WILDE
“From day one of building Harper Wilde, our mission has been to empower women, lifting up ladies everywhere in every step of their lives. We saw our friends, families, and peers who were strong, empowered women sitting in the boardroom or running around the hospital in scrubs, and it was painfully evident that the leaders in the intimates space were not supporting these women’s needs.”
Jane and Jenna started Harper Wilde to meet those needs.
WE LOVE THE MISSION BEHIND DIAMOND NEXUS. IT’S COMPLETELY ALIGNED WITH OUR VISION TO EMPOWER OTHERS AND … PROVIDE MORE ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVES TO CONSUMERS.

FOLLOWING YOUR PATH
Jenna and Jane advocate for trusting your own judgement and working toward what you believe is right.
“It’s important to hear feedback from others, but in some instances, no one understands your situation as well as you do - and no one is accountable and responsible for what happens except for you,” Jane advises.
Jenna agrees. “You can only truly succeed if you are true to yourself and your values,” she says. “You must be clear on your values to be able to make decisions quickly and not worry if you made the wrong choice.”
ON DIAMOND NEXUS
Jane and Jenna are committed to making sure Harper Wilde is true to its values from start to finished bra, and encourage people to find companies that have similar convictions.
“We love the mission behind Diamond Nexus. It’s completely aligned with our vision to empower others and create a supply chain that is in line with a company’s over-arching goals, as well as provide more ethical and sustainable alternatives to consumers. There’s a lot of education needed in this market, and it’s an important message to be shared.”
Jenna says her style for jewelry is simple and classic. “I tend to find a few pieces I love, and wear those as staples. I love this tennis bracelet – such a timeless piece that can be worn alone or with other jewelry.”
Jane agrees. “I’ve always been drawn to very simple, classic styles of jewelry, so I immediately fell in love with Diamond Nexus’ stud earrings. They so elegant and go with any outfit!”
Believe it or not, they gave their thoughts about their styles separately! “I guess after three years working together, it’s not too surprising we think alike!” Jane jokes.
WHY THEY DO IT
“We wanted to change the conversation around lingerie, and to give all women
and girls a brand they are proud to stand behind.”
