About Us

My name is Malory Taylor, owner of Ojai Lingerie—a lingerie and loungewear boutique I launched just last year in downtown Ojai, California. Our focus is on comfy, body-positive lingerie and loungewear.

Like many women, I've struggled loving my body. Regardless of how hard I tried to fit in, I would never fit westernized beauty standards. I didn't feel good enough at a size 0, a 2, a 4, or a 6. The fact is, it had nothing to do with my weight and everything to do with a lack of self love.
 
Then, at the end of 2015, I found out I was pregnant with my girl. My focus shifted. As I carried my little one in my stretching belly, she began to heal my heart from within. I imagined her speaking to my inner child—that little girl who was inundated with information on diets and exercise and dolls whose skintones were about 20 shades lighter than her own.

I believed I wasn't good enough because I didn't fit a certain mold. As my girl was growing within me—helping me to claim more and more physical space in the world—I imagined her holding me tight and saying, "Mama, you don't have to believe that anymore." 

Born in the summer of 2016, my little one came charging into my life and nothing has ever been the same in all the best ways. Becoming a mother completely altered the way I see myself and my body—my belly is no longer flat and smooth, my hair has thinned and changed texture—and I have come to realize that none of those things matter.

The stretch marks that adorn my belly remind me of the amazing feat my body endured. I’m much kinder to myself because I want to be the type of woman I needed when I was a little girl. It is my ultimate goal as a mother to instill in my daughter a positive self-image that has absolutely nothing to do with numbers on a scale. I want her to thrive! And, I want her to be surrounded by multitudes of thriving, confident women.

You are beautiful.

It's time we heal from the lies we were told as young girls.

Love, 
Malory Taylor 
Owner 

P.S. If you have the means, I would be honored if you would please consider a modest contribution of $5+ to my campaign to support even more women through employment opportunities and establishing new relationships with female-led brands.
