Whilst we find ourselves thrifting for clothing, bags and jewellery, there’s one thing we can’t buy secondhand: underwear. Sustainable fashion has come a long way, but it feels like now more than ever that people are taking it one step further when it comes to curating our closets environmentally friendly way, and building an eco-conscious wardrobe from the inside out (literally).
When it comes to our intimates, we are, without a doubt, always on the hunt for those extra comfortable fabrics to make us not only feel good but confident, and the sustainability factor shouldn’t be overlooked. From brands that use recycled and organic materials to brands that created collections made from surplus fabric, below, six of our favourite sustainable lingerie brands.
1. Heist Studios
Embracing comfort, support and style, the British brand HEIST celebrates the importance of creating essential pieces designed from 100% recycled and recyclable lace, with a sheer eco-mech applied on their intimate garments.
This NYC-based intimates brand produces organic cotton pieces, all while allowing their consumer to send in their throwaways, which they then recycle—creating a unique approach to upcycling and preventing any additional waste.
3. botanica workshop
With its use of organic cotton, recycled nylon, and silk, Botanica Workshop is your one-stop-shop for everyday luxe, providing a wide selection of sheer details and unique prints. This USA brand may be on the pricier side, but any purchase from Botanica is worth the splurge.
