Whether you are a long-time slow fashion enthusiast or a complete sustainability newbie, you have probably asked yourself this question. Finding good-quality ethical underwear can be a challenge and with this article, I hope to simplify it for you. These are my top 5 sustainable underwear brands, which I’m sure you will love as much as I do.
Organic Basics is one of the better-established brand names in the slow fashion community, for a good reason! To lower their impact on the environment, they choose more sustainable fabrics (such as organic cotton, tencel lyocell and recycled materials). They make their clothing in factories working on lowering their environmental impact and finally, design clothes that will last. If you are looking for super comfortable, timeless and simple sustainable underwear that you can wear under anything, Organic Basics are the way to go! I also wrote a full article about Organic Basics – Sustainable Fashion, so make sure to check it out.

If basics are not for you and you would rather wear sexier, lacy underwear, look no further than Brighton Lace. They offer a range of beautiful lace and cashmere pieces, as well as some cotton essentials with lace details. Who said that sustainable underwear could not be fun? I certainly did not! What’s more, all their garments are crafted following the principles of slow fashion by a small team of seamstresses in Brighton, which not only shows the high ethical standard of the company but also lowers their carbon footprint.
That time of the month? Ditch unsustainable tampons and pads, WUKA period pants are here to stay. They fully substitute any other period products, just throw them in the wash when you are done and you’re good to go. WUKA is on a mission to lower the environmental impact of periods and reduce the mountains of single-use sanitary product waste. They also empower and represent women of all shapes, sizes and skin colors and make periods a little bit easier to deal with.
