5 Sustainable Lingerie Brands
Self-love is the best love, am I right? I’m a big believer in the “treat yo self” mentality (thank you, Donna Meagle) and believe that lingerie is just as much (or more) for the person wearing it as it is for the person they’re with!
I’m not sure if I’m the only one who swoons over lingerie and sleepwear, but I am always drawn to them because they make me feel sexy and fierce without really trying. Self-love is not diminished to lingerie alone, duh, but when February rolls around, what’s the harm in dressing up for yourself?
As beautiful as they are to look at and touch, lingerie fabrics have a history of being harmful for our earth—enter, sustainability. I’ve compiled a short list of companies that are fully transparent about their factory’s working conditions, as well as the sourcing of fabrics, making these brands both sexy and sustainable.
At Lonely Label, people come first. They know all of their suppliers and makers by name, and visit their factories regularly to ensure they all follow and maintain ethical standards and guidelines. They are continually looking for ways to improve their products, to support and uphold the partners who produce them, and minimize their impact on the earth.
Naja seeks to empower women rather than objectify them. Their factory primarily employs single mothers or female head of households where they are paid above market wages with healthcare benefits. Environmentally, they are reducing drastic waste by using digital printing and fabrics crafted from recycled plastic bottles!
