About Rachel

Rachel Rector is a twenty-something tumbleweed who loves to sew and design garments, especially lingerie, swimwear, dance costumes, and one-of-a-kind pieces for her own wardrobe. Rachel graduated from the University of Florida with a BFA in Art History in 2010 and currently studies production development in intimates & swimwear at the Fashion Institute of Technology. She has lived and loved in Portland (Oregon), Brooklyn, Gainesville (Florida), and Kansas City (Missouri). In her lifetime, she has traveled to France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Czech Republic, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Canada, Malta, Italy, Russia, the Bahamas, and road-tripped through 25+ of the United States in a convertible. When she isn't sewing, Rachel loves to swim in the Florida Springs, read biographies of famous creators, practice pole dance moves, and cuddle her kitties, Stella & Bunny.

RR Lingerie

RR Lingerie is Rachel's ever-evolving collection of lingerie. RR Lingerie's streamlined silhouettes are classic yet modern and stand apart as an intimate apparel brand designed with an artist's aesthetic. Each piece is made in the USA with the utmost attention to craftsmanship and fit. Fabric, trim, and hardware are carefully sourced to fit the RR aesthetic. Styles include bras, underwear, bodysuits, and slips in an array of shapes and silhouettes to flatter many different body shapes and preferences. Not only do our customers look to RR Lingerie for support and comfort in beautiful everyday wear, but they choose our lingerie because it is unique, thoughtfully produced, and inspired by the desire to elevate the wearer's confidence.
