'Shark Tank': Kevin O'Leary teased for being 'supportive' after $150K deal with Behave Bras
Women are always on the lookout for a good support system -- we mean that literally. Unfortunately, for bustier women, finding the right bra seems like a Herculean task -- finding one that is stylish, underwire free, and provides the right support seems virtually impossible. Until Behave Bra's stepped into the picture and changed the game entirely, offering loungewear bras and panties, Behave Bras is every women's team come true!

Athena Kasvikis, the founder of Behave Bras came on to show hoping to score a deal of $150,000 for 10% equity. She explained that Behave Bra's loungewear bras were unique due to their patent-pending 'stay' technology, which acts as a 'soft seatbelt' for busts. Having made $110,000 in sales and a low return rate of 12%, Athena explained that the brand had also patented the entire product. Kevin O'Leary was the first shark to jump in and make her an offer for $150k. He asked for 20% equity in return. Athena made a counter for 17%, but the sharks quickly chimed in, noting that negotiating for a mere 3% might cost her the deal. Kevin even mentioned that he was betting on her and investing in her. Athena took the offer and made a deal of $150k for 20%.
Fans did not see that partnership coming and were quite amused by it. "WOW -- I did not see an Athena-Kevin partnership coming!" tweeted a fan. "There is some more diversity for @kevinolearytv's portfolio! Congratulations to you and @BehaveBras! #SharkTank" added another. "Kevin made that offer so fast because that was a great pitch and he sees the success Athena. Take it #SharkTank" said a fan. "You can tell Mr. Wonderful was an Effboy in his lifetime #SharkTank" joked another.

Even the sharks themselves were surprised to see this deal being made and couldn't hold back when it came to the puns. "That was quick! Cheers to @KevinOlearyTV for being so 'supportive' #SharkTank @ABCSharkTank #BehaveBras" tweeted Barbara. "What a PAIR. never expected Kevin to be the first one to jump into this deal. #SharkTank" added Daymond.
