Anndrea Villarreal started this journey into fashion back in 2006 when her mother taught her to sew . In high school she went on to hand embellishing and mending her own bras, then those of her closest friends. On her 19th birthday she faced a problem; she wanted new lingerie but couldn't settle on one design because there was something off about each piece! It was in that moment, she put her mother's sewing lessons to use and opened her own Etsy store and that is when Ms. Limón V was born!
Over the next few years, Anndrea organized 4 of her own fashion shows, curated 12 fashion events, and participated in 6 other runways as well as being accepted into both New York and LA fashion week-- 3 times. Finally after 5 years, the first ever Ms. Limón V boutique and atelier was opened.
Part of profits are donated to carefully selected charities. Ms. Limón V, formerly Lemon V Lingerie, carefully creates each piece with minimal to no waste and always re-purposes scraps to live up to the slogan "Guilt Free Pleasures". MLV strives to fulfill the need to deliver sustainable fashion with a unique design in a comfortable and universally complimentary silhouette, and to promote body positivity by employing diverse models and not retouching scars, rolls, cellulite, or any human features.
Bespoke services are available with custom sizing and exclusive materials here. MLV ships internationally and designs for office workers and burlesque dancers alike.
Ms. Limón V now hosts lingerie parties as well, for those who can't make it to the boutique or miss events such as trunk shows and runways. This includes but is not limited to: a bottle of wine, samples of fabrics/trims, and providing all inventory for pre-order to your bridal party, girls night, or guys night in.

Long term goals are to use the MLV platform for social awareness, organize volunteer events through Ms. Limón V to benefit the community, to make ocean friendly bath, beauty, and passion products, grow the Fresno fashion community, and ultimately to open a LEED certified boutique and manufacturing facility in Anndrea's hometown of Fresno, California.
