Given that even niche categories are seeing multiple players, the competition is forcing cut down in margins and most of the funding money is going into marketing.
Zivame is a Bangalore based eCommerce startup targeting one such niche, Lingerie.

The startup is attempting to replicate the offline shopping experience by offering detailed product pages with in-depth descriptions and images, allowing users to understand the look and feel of a piece of lingerie. Users can browse by category, brand, color, and size and even choose lingerie by identifying what they want to wear it under.
