What's your business, and who are your customers?
My business is Pursesuitz, LLC, and we serve women who want to venture out hands and worry-free. Pursesuitz Pocketwear aims to level the playing field between men's and women's clothing by providing functional pockets in shapewear that can be worn as an undergarment or standalone activewear clothing.

Pursesuitz Pocketwear provides a safe, secure place for women to store their essentials without sacrificing style.
