Designer Chelsea Hughes started cantiqLA in 2015, using a vintage sewing machine set up in her home kitchen. Since then, the brand has grown far beyond her expectations, but the cantiq vision remains the same: quality, handcrafted lingerie for all bodies. Chelsea believes that lingerie shouldn’t conform to popular beauty standards, so she has created her designs in “straight” sizes, plus sizes, and a new category—genderfluid sizes, which include more room for more body types. cantiqLA strives to expand on the concept of inclusivity in lingerie, all while maintaining the careful, handcrafted quality that began in Chelsea’s kitchen.
