Since 1988, Body Aware has been at the forefront of the drive to set new standards in fashion and fun in the design of men's underwear, leaving behind the traditional and often plain boring underwear of the past. The company has its origins in the small mill town of Trowbridge in the west of England, where it was founded by Kristina, a former American diplomat and David, a petroleum geophysicist.
The company was started in an old dilapidated wool mill building in Back Street, Trowbridge, one floor was filled with a cutting table and fabric and another floor with sewing machines.The first machinists were Laura and Terri who oversaw the hiring and managing of a staff of over 20 machinists. The designs were all generated in house, mainly by Susie who later ran away to join the circus as a high wire performer. Between 3-6 catalogs were produced each year, until the first BodyAware.com web site appeared in 1996 (over a year before Google!). Catalogs have now died out, but the website is still going strong 20 years later.
