Introducing the Queen's Army Classic Underwear: Underwear on a Mission
At Kade & Vos, we believe every woman deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin. That is why we made it our mission to create high-quality, comfy underwear and clothing for women of every size. However, feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin can go much further than shape and size. Women all across the country and the world struggle every day due to conditions and situations that are out of their control, one being a life-changing disease of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). March is MS Awareness Month, which is why we have chosen to partner with the Queen’s Army to shine a light and raise funds for women with MS.
What is MS?
Multiple Sclerosis is a long-lasting condition impacting the body’s central nervous system that can hinder information flowing between the brain and the body. MS can affect the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves throughout the eyes.
MS can make even the simplest everyday tasks a true challenge for those who suffer from it. Those with MS can often struggle with basic body functions, including muscle control, vision, and even balance. While the condition affects the physical body, the limitations it causes can lead men and women with MS to experience anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems. MS can also bring on a financial burden when it hinders individuals from working or requires expensive treatment and hospital bills.
MS is often unpredictable, and a cause has yet to be discovered. Even the severity and progress of MS vary greatly from person to person. However, while little is understood about MS, it is known that women suffer from the condition at a much higher rate than men. In fact, two to three times more women are diagnosed with MS than men. Because of the disease’s great effect on women, many women with MS and their loved ones have come together to create the Queen’s Army.
What is the Queen’s Army?
The Queen’s Army are the brave women with MS who are warriors and advocates for themselves and each other. The Queen’s Army is all about giving women with MS a platform to share their stories and band together against the disease.
Christina, a founding member of the Queen’s Army, says that women with MS are just your average women. She points out that because of the expense of treatment, many live on a tight budget:
Most of us are everyday people. We live paycheck to paycheck, wear the same clothes everyday, drive cars that are in bad need of repair, struggle to make it through the day, wishing you could just rest only to work a 9 hour day and come home and remember that the real job starts off the clock.
Christina also says that MS is not very glamorous. Most members of the Queen’s Army do not look like supermodels. However, the Queen’s Army gives its members hope and a voice.

To show our love and support for the amazing work the Queen’s Army is doing, we are thrilled to introduce the K&V Queen’s Army Classic Underwear. This underwear will kick off a line of underwear all new to Kade & Vos: The Classics Collection.
The Classics Collection will feature the same designs and styles of the signature collection at a new, more affordable price. Throughout March, enjoy the classics collections in deep, royal purple to shine a light on the Queen’s Army. Each garment is also printed with the Queen’s Army official seal. For every pair sold, 20% of the profit will go straight to the National MS Society to continue its mission of raising awareness of MS and empowering the women who have it.
Of course, like everything we offer, each pair of Queen’s Army Signature Underwear is made in the U.S. out of sustainable cotton materials. For the Classics Collection, that means ultra, soft cotton in a jersey knit. And every pair is available in any size. In fact, if your size isn’t available on the size chart, we will make a pair especially for you. We believe every woman should feel comfortable and confident in what they wear, and that starts with amazing underwear.
Other Ways to Celebrate MS Awareness Month and the Queen’s Army
Apart from rocking your new underwear, there are plenty of ways to raise awareness this March for National MS Awareness Month.
Spread the word about the Queen’s Army with their hashtag #queensarmy and #kadevosqueensarmy. Show off your new underwear, tell your story, or share what you have learned on social media to raise awareness and show some love.
This year’s theme for MS Awareness Month is Visibility, which is why the National MS Society chose #MyInvisibleMS as their hashtag for the month of March. Help shine a spotlight on MS by joining in the conversation online and in person.
Finally, consider making a donation to help us reach our goal of $1,000 to the National MS Society. Every donation goes towards funding cutting-edge research, professional education, MS advocacy, and programs and services to help those with MS live their best lives.
We are so excited to help shine a light on Multiple Sclerosis and the Queen’s Army for the entire month of March. We hope you join us in celebrating these amazing women and the wonderful cause!

Our Size Inclusive Guarantee: Don’t see your size? let us know and we’ll get it for you at no additional cost.
Use the chart below to determine your size. If you’re on the borderline between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit.
Don’t have a measuring tape? No worries! We’ll send you one for free.
At Kade & Vos, we do not use the term "Plus Size". We feel that calling some sizes "Plus Size" means that these sizes and shapes are somehow different from other sizes.
Still unsure about your size? Check out our sizing videos for a more detailed tutorial on measuring yourself.
