Our Story

Love My Bubbles is the world's pioneer in designing and manufacturing curve-enhancing shapewear. Our exclusive specialty underwear 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 lifting, padding and sculpting bodywear solutions for men and women since founding Bubbles® in 2003. With origins in Atlanta, Georgia, we are a U.S. company, currently based in beautiful Miami, Florida.

The Early Years
Karen had her entrepreneurial "ah ha" moment when she invented a shaper that solved a fashion problem - saggy jeans. Her invention made her feel so much confident wearing any pair of pants because that saggy feeling in the back was gone. She even received compliments on the part of her body she had been self-conscience about since high school. She thought, if I need this, other people might too! Karen had always wanted to start a company, provide quality jobs in her community and build a long-lasting brand with integrity, that stood for quality. She saw this as an opportunity to do just that.

Karen began the patent process for her invention, continually improving her product idea. In 2003 she hopped in her Honda and headed north, from Atlanta to the Carolinas, seeking our first mill partner. With a design/IT background, she built our original website (with Notepad and Photoshop) in 2004. Our first order was placed in August of that year. It was a BIG moment!

The Press
Shortly after our website's launch, Love My Bubbles was featured in Daily Candy (the first and biggest daily fashion newsletter at the time). In 2009, Love My Bubbles received our first big fashion magazine credit in French Vogue. Then in 2015, InStyle Magazine recommended our Retro Lace Waist Padded Shaper in an editorial about problem-solving fashion solutions. We are honored to have been featured in Vogue three times, as well as Glamour, W, Oprah's O Magazine, Allure, New York Post, New York Magazine and many more.

Now recognized as the fashion industry leader in booty-boosting, Karen is frequently interviewed about booty-centric fashion trends. Here are just some of the TV and radio shows that have featured Bubbles: Glee, Wendy Williams, Rachael Ray, The Doctors, Steve Harvey,The Early Show on CBS, Fox5 Las Vegas, Good Morning Texas and BBC.

Learning and Innovating
Karen had an uphill challenge building her new brand. Not only did she face the normal hurdles that most entrepreneurs encounter, she was also creating an entirely new product category too. This required a great deal of customer education and explanation. After all, at that time, shapewear was for slimming only. So she created educational videos (long before Instagram Reels even existed), as well as an entire taxonomy for her inventions like "Butt Bra", "Bum Lifting Bands" and "Push-up Bra for the Butt" plus almost 20 registered trademarks like "Double-O" and "Insta-Booty". After listening to customer requests and recognizing demand in the market, Karen began designing and adding new product lines like our Padded Shapewear and Boobles Bra Accessory collections.

Movin' On Up
The growing business needed more space, so Karen left her 1000 square foot office in Atlanta and opened a 4000 sq ft location near family in South Florida. She embarked on the trade show circuit, aired our Insta-Booty infomercial and further expanded our product line again with our luxurious Seamless Shapewear Collection.

The Move to Miami
As our business grew, so did our team. Love My Bubbles had outgrown our warehouse and small-town location. So in 2011 we set out to find a new HQ in Miami, Florida. After an enormous team effort, we opened our current 21,000 sq ft location on January 2nd, 2012.

Now and into the Future
2024 marks our 21st year of creating innovative shapewear and accessories, providing excellence in Customer Service and adhering to the highest product quality standards. We continue to evolve, not only to meet the expectations of our Customers, but to earn new customers who seek self-confidence and quality problem-solving shapewear solutions.
