Shark Tank Underease Underwear Update

Underease Underwear update

  • Entrepreneurs: Buck Weimer and Arlene Weimer 
  • Business: Specialty underwear for flatulence
  • Ask: $55,000 for 25% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Sharks: None

When Buck and Arlene brought their specialty underwear that traps the smell of gas into Shark Tank Season 1, the sharks struggled not to laugh at the product. The couple explained that Underease Underwear is made of an air-tight material with elastic around both of the legs, and a charcoal filter in the back. This helps to not leak any bad smells. 

The sharks wanted to learn about Underease Underwear’s sales. Buck and Arlene told the sharks that in the year prior to filming, they had generated about $37,000 in sales.

This was down some from each of the prior two years when they brought in $67,000 and $83,000. Each unit retailed for $24.95.

Robert Herjavec and Daymond John felt that the market was too niche, so they dropped out. Kevin Harrington quickly dropped out as well.

Barbara Corcoran said the underwear didn’t look comfortable, so she dropped out next. Kevin O’Leary just wasn’t interested so he dropped out last. 

With no offers from the sharks, Buck and Arlene were forced to leave Shark Tank Season 1 without a deal. What happened next for their company? Keep reading our Underease Underwear update to find out!

We have sad news to share in our Underease Underwear update. It turns out, after many years of moderate success, the company eventually shut down in 2021 due to financial losses.

This will be our final Underease Underwear update.
