Ethical Lingerie Brands
For a woman, there may be nothing as personal as what we’re wearing underneath. Our lingerie starts our day with us and should be comfortable, make us feel confident and effortlessly sexy, and ideally it should reflect our values for ethics and sustainability. There are a growing number of ethical and sustainable clothing brands that respect both people and the planet, but ethical swimwear and ethical lingerie lines - especially ones that make us look and feel amazing - are fewer and farther between. If you’re ready to update the everyday essentials to brands that are ethical, sustainable and conscious check out our 11 favorite conscious lingerie lines below.
