Sustainable Underwear, 3 Ways!
These three underwear brands all use different sustainable methods
There are things we can do to join the slow-fashion movement like shopping vintage and second hand. However when it comes to our underwear, having good quality is essential, and we deserve the best for our peaches. This means we want to buy new, and that’s ok!
Luckily, there are lots of different ways that sustainable underwear can be made, and these three kick-ass brands are using them:
Stripe and Stare: Offer up a wide range of briefs and bras in lots of different fun and vibrant colors and prints. All their undies are made from TENCEL. A one hundred percent biodegradable fibre which is made from wood pulp.
Bamboo Underwear: This brand uses bamboo viscose for its underwear, which boasts being 4 x more soft than cotton, as well as being more eco-friendly. The bamboo trees need very little water to grow, so are a much better choice than cotton.
On top of this the material is great for sensitive skin and has lots of tiny holes making it breathable – which we can all agree is very important for our briefs.
Their undies come in all shapes and sizes from boyfriend boxers to classic thongs. We love that the classic thong comes in twelve different color ways, shop it here for $23.
Our sewing team is 7 women in Hackney, London. They have been killing it restocking Ava Bras recently. (Have you noticed that most sizes are now fully stocked online?!) We will restock the remaining sizes over the next two weeks. Shop online or join the waitlist on our website. Also! Thanks to our amazing customers for your support over the last few months. It’s thanks to you that our team is still working together and Lara is staying strong. 💕 Helene wears 28DD. Jess wears 32FF. Poppy wears 34F.
Lara Intimates: One hundred percent of Lara Intimates underwear are made from sustainably sourced deadstock fabrics, and not only do they run on a zero waste policy, but they also make everything in their all-female factory.
The sustainable and girl-power brand offer briefs and bras. Their non-wired ‘Ava’ bra is designed with maximum comfort in mind, which is just what we look for in a bra. Finally, one that we don’t have to whip off as soon as we get home. Shop the ‘Ava’ here for $60.
