Erin Bickley and Jenny Greer from Macon, Georgia invented Hold Your Haunches, slimming pants that give ‘instant, built-in uplift to one’s derriere.’ They convinced Shark Tank investors Lori Greiner and Barbara Corcoran to invest in their company during Season 5. They offered Hold Your Haunches $75,000 for 40 percent with a $100k credit line. So far, Erin and Jenny haven’t need the loan.
Before Shark Tank, they sold $280k worth of Hold Your Haunches pants from 2011 to 2013. They sold the same amount within 48 hours of their appearance on Shark Tank in April 2014. In eights months, the leggings company has grown over 550 percent!
