Meet the Designer


Who is the woman behind the brand?

Susan Piontek was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, as was her brand Sassy Chassis, and graduated from Clayton High School. She attended Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and the Sorbonne in Paris after which she received a B.A. in Modern Languages and an M.A. in Education from Washington University. Susan also attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music and later received a Life Coaching certification from the Coach Training Alliance in Boulder. She is also a Certified Nia Instructor, a trained vocalist, a mother, a partner and a friend.
Susan is a woman with a passion for life and an unstoppable desire to create and learn more each day from every person she comes into contact with and every experience that she has. She is comfortable in her own skin, or as the French say “je me sens bien dans ma peau”, and embraces her femininity and strengths, and has that same aspiration for women of all sizes, shapes and ages. Her desire is for every woman to realize that she has an inalienable right to feel beautiful each and every day and to appreciate who she is in the present moment. From those beliefs Susan has created the Lingerie Line,” Sassy Chassis”. Like Susan, Sassy Chassis is “born in the USA” and her lineage is home grown and home sewn. All fabrics are sourced stateside, as are the laces and labor. Manufacturing happens right in Susan’s hometown – Stylish St. Louis, Missouri. Sassy Chassis is flirty, functional and fiercely feminine and can be enjoyed by women sizes xs to 2xl.
