HOW IT ALL STARTED
During the aerobics boom of the 80s, the 5 Tan sisters saw the growing demand for affordable quality sportswear and got into the game, producing leotards in the small backroom of their Joo Chiat family home. With pure determination and hard work, the Bods brand was conceived and well-received from the locals (wuuuuhuuuuuu yebeiiiii) – and the rest, as they say, is history.
Fast forward a few decades, Bods remains a staple in the Singapore sportswear scene. At our core, we stay true to the Tan sisters’ mission of providing quality sportswear without breaking the bank while instilling our values throughout our entire supply chain. This means no sweatshops, no forced child labour, no underhand practices, and no unethical conditions.
Today, Bods remains the only Singapore activewear manufacturer with its own home label.
