Ethical Lingerie Brands

There may be nothing as personal as what we’re wearing underneath our everyday wardrobe. Our lingerie starts our day with us and should be comfortable, make us feel confident and effortlessly sexy, and—ideally—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 favorite eco-friendly lingerie lines below.

Lingerie Products | Cotton underwear, unlined bras, bodysuits

Everlane has done it again—their underwear collection is an instant wardrobe staple. Their super-soft Supima cotton and elegant, minimalist designs come in at an affordable price point (a pair of panties costs $12 while their tank bra is $22).
