Nicole and Lindsay came up with Trimi Tanks at hockey practice in the morning. Their product sold 100 pairs at thirty-five dollars accounting for three-thousand-five hundred dollars in sales. They have done a craft show and a flea market in Pittsburgh, and they say it is a neat idea and you should be on Shark Tank.

What do the Shark Tank Investors say about Trimi Tanks
Mark Cuban tells them since they are from Pittsburgh, they can drink some Icy Light, and he loves the hustle, vision, and energy. It's just not the area he has the expertise, and he is out.
Daymond John started at Flea Markets as well, but he couldn't keep inventory. He tells them they are too early and so he is out.
Kevin O'Leary offers them to go to a fine restaurant and choose a wine worth $3,500, and at the end of the dinner, you burn it all. He is out.
Lori Greiner tells them when you are at a flea market, and people are buying other items instead, they are saying it is not your market. She is out.
Robert Herjavec tells them that they have not proved the market, it is a hobby, so he is out.
Trimi Tank after Shark Tank
The Trimi Tank website page is suspended, and it appears that they are no longer in business. This one didn't last, probably because they didn't get the action, and $35 for a pair of straps is a lot of money, especially for an unknown brand.
There is a clothing company selling body wrappers on Amazon with interchangeable straps similar to the Trimi Tank design.
