Why did you create The Modern Classic?

The Modern Classic Activewear Top + Tunic was born out of a mission to develop a more flattering activewear top that looked classic and feminine, performed exquisitely during activity, and beautifully addressed the demands of movement-based disciplines like barre, pilates, and dance.

It evolved into a piece that not only stylishly fulfills the original mission, but also meets a modern girl's need for a highly versatile and comfortable wardrobe piece, by serving as both a top and a tunic and by exhibiting a timeless style that can be worn in class and out.

Why do you have so few styles?

We believe in making items that are best in class and not just putting something out for the sake of just putting something out, following trends, or meeting some fashion calendar.  Our designs are meant to be thoughtful, quality, timeless staples.  And they are meant to be original.  And that takes time.  Designs you find here won't be found anywhere else.  If it's not interesting or inventive or problem-solving, why do it?

Up to what bra cup size does The Modern Classic fit?

gwenyth's Founder originally designed the sling bra to flatter more petite-chested women (she is one herself!) in the A to B cup range.  But she soon discovered the innovative sling design could support up to C and small D cups, while providing the flattering lift made possible by the unique design.  As many customers have said "It makes my boobs look amazing."  No lie.

The Modern Classic is like our iPhone and we constantly make microadjustments to make it better with each run, because our Founder is a bit of a perfectionist.  The latest version of the Modern Classic is designed to fit up to small D cups and has a few small nips and tucks relative to the original version.

Where are your designs made?

We like to keep an eye on things and make sure they meet our high standards.  So we construct everything in the United States...Los Angeles to be exact.

Are your designs sold in retail stores?

Yes!  We love the movement studio community, which includes barre, pilates, dance, and yoga and have recently expanded to selling through studios.  We originally stayed online to be sure we really understood our clients and their needs.  But thanks to our community of supporters, we now feel we have enough understanding and resonance to make our designs more widely available.

If there is a studio you want to see us in, ask them to stock us.  If you make the introduction via wholesale@gwenythbrand.com and we end up selling there, we'll thank you with an outfit from the collection they carry.

If you'd rather just stay in direct contact with us, e-mail us at gwenyth@gwenythbrand.com!

What is Luxe Performance® and Luxe Soft Performance® fabric? 

We evaluated hundreds of fiber configurations before arriving at our chosen Luxe® fabrics - unique fabrics that are woven and then brushed to create a cottony-soft texture to the hand.  They're incredibly durable and dry quickly to keep an active and social gwenyth girl comfortable, cool, and feeling luxurious throughout her day.

Why is gwenyth not capitalized?

 To us, the gwenyth woman is as much about humility and quiet confidence as she is about style, activity and movement.  A lower-case "g" just seemed to better embody that warm, unassuming attitude.

Where did the name "gwenyth" come from?

The name gwenyth is Welsh in origin.  gwenyth's founder had always thought the sound of the name evoked a nostalgic feeling of classic, but not over-flowery, romanticism and simple strength.  It was chosen to capture gwenyth's romantic, yet clean and modern feeling and approach to life.
