Founder and CEO Jennifer Ferguson who grabbed necessity by the horns and didn’t let the ups and downs of starting a business buck her off until she gave birth to the Original Handful Bra in 2006. Jennifer was already a mother of two and a fulltime fitness instructor, but she couldn’t find a bra that could keep up with her always on, ever moving, places to be but still look good from wake up to worn out, active lifestyle. Handful is and always will be her beloved third child. Jennifer even named it after herself(her father would always tell people, “She’s a handful.”)
