About Us

Bubbles® Bodywear is the world's pioneer in designing and manufacturing padded underwear! Our exclusive shapewear designs and our ground-breaking booty-boosting body shapers are the creation of Karen Jones, our Founder and CEO. As a result of her own needs as a not-so-curvy girl, Karen has been designing curve-enhancing solutions for men and women since founding Bubbles® in 2003. Read more about our story.

A note our founder, Karen Jones...
People always ask me..."How did you get into padded underwear?". A little chuckle always follows. Then I explain that in my teens I was teased for my boyishly straight figure. I felt self-conscious and unattractive leaving any room. And I, like many cheek-challenged girls, had a hard time finding any fashions that fit or flattered. This instilled in me a lack of self-confidence at a young age.

Fast forward to 28 - I had an idea to fix my flat behind so I could wear the fashions that I wanted to be able to wear. I wanted an alternative to all of the goofy contraptions and "granny-panties" that already existed - no way I was wearing those things! So I fashioned my first Bubbles prototype in 2003. I donned my new invention and the compliments started rolling in. The ah-ha moment came when I thought - there must be other people like me who would want this.

The part of my body that made me so self-conscious since high school had suddenly become my best asset! That was a shock to me - growing up, I was a straight-as-a-board late-bloomer. My nickname was even Jones Bones! I'm just happy that I was able to turn that negativity into something good, that could help other people. And that's what Bubbles is all about - giving people the tools to approach every morning with moxie!

Bubbles is now boosting the self-esteem of hundreds of thousands of not-so-buxom-bottom girls, women and men out there. If you're reading this, you might just be one of them!

And if you have another moment, take a look at some of our customer feedback and you'll understand why Bubbles has grown mainly from word-of-mouth. After all, when friends spread the word about their favorite products, you know just how great they are! We're proud to say that Bubbles Bodywear has become the One Stop Booty Shop!® for thousands of women and men who want to boost their silhouette (and their self-confidence).
