Melissa Dufour unapologetically chose passion over profession. The healthcare administration graduate comes with an athletic background and a penchant for fashion decided to chase her dreams of becoming a designer. In 2018, she created the trendy athleisure brand Sexy Sweats.
Sexy Sweats is a cutting-edge women's activewear and athleisure line, introducing "She Is" as the First Official Collection. Each exclusive collection depicts the founder’s personality and style. 
Fitness has always been a passion of Dufour but after being diagnosed with severe arthritis at the age of 25, the Sexy Sweats founder became determined to master her disease, instead of allowing her disease to master her. Now, cleared of any arthritis symptoms, Dufour is leading a new tribe of women, who don’t believe in modesty. The entrepreneur wanted to create a brand that looked and felt like her and strong women in her life she admired. 
"Sexy Sweats is a brand that represents me, and the millions of women just like me. Results aren't free, Neither are these curves!"
Sexy Sweats is versatile and daring in design. The vibrant colors, quality materials, and intricate stitching with slimming illusions are crafted to make bold statements while enhancing one's silhouette and frame. The clothing line is particularly crafted with much needed support for best result when training. Each individual piece is designed by Founder and Creative Director, Melissa Dufour. The Sexy Sweats line encourages women to be confident and bold by hugging areas of the body that Dufour believes women should shamelessly flaunt instead of shamefully covering up.
