Commenting on the launch, Shekar Tewari, MD, HanesBrands Apparel India , said "Having been in the Indian market for over 6 years and having established the Hanes brand in India, we were exploring the options of getting our other marquee brands to India. Our research showed that WonderBra was one of our brands with a high level of consumer awareness already existing and it made sense to tap that. While we will start rolling the launch of WonderBra in brick and mortar retail later this year, the online opportunity gave us the platform to launch the brand with a pan India footprint from day one. Zivame, being India's premier specialist lingerie online retailer, seemed a perfect platform to launch the brand"

Zivame provides International brands the platform to reach Indian consumers residing in over 20,000 pincodes. For consumers, this translates tobest possible range of selection from all brands."
