German brand AIKYOU creates timeless, minimalist lingerie for small cup sizes using regionally-sourced fabrics and ethical production standards. Their brand mission is in two parts: to create beautiful lingerie for small busts, and to do so with the highest caliber of sustainability.
What to do when you want, say, a pair of sheer tights that won’t break the bank but you also want to shop sustainably? That’s where we get to the two man-made eco-friendly hosiery options I’m going to talk about today: recycled hosiery, and biodegradable hosiery.
There are a number of reasons to consider wearing wool tights or stockings this winter. For one thing, it’s well known that wool is insulating. The naturally wavy shape of the fibers traps a layer of air against your skin, which keeps you nice and warm.
Cotton can be a wonderful fibre for hosiery for a few reasons. It’s soft, it’s durable, and it lets your skin breathe, which may be the difference between your thick winter tights feeling comfortably warm and unpleasantly sweaty.
Welcome to the second installment in my series on hosiery made from natural or recycled fibres, where today we’re focussing on bamboo. One of the most talked-about fibres in eco media, there’s a lot of debate about whether it’s actually all that sustainable.
Today’s article is the first in a series that’s going to show you where you can find hosiery made from less commonly-used fibres. Silk hosiery isn’t just great from a sustainability standpoint. It’s also a soft, breathable fibre which makes it an ideal choice for sensitive skin.
HARA — which means green in Hindi — is one of the most eco-conscious brands I’ve seen. They don’t just try to be sustainable; they’re willing to go above and beyond what other companies are doing to help the planet.
Last year I went ‘low waste’. And so, as a long-time lover and consumer of fashion and especially as a professional lingerie blogger, naturally my attention has turned to how I can continue to shop for lingerie in a more sustainable way.
The idea of period pants has always highly appealed to me. I came across British brand Cheeky Wipes a few months ago and couldn’t say no to such low prices. Wuka, ModiBodi and Ruby Love all kindly offered to send me underwear to try out too.
There is a seemingly endless supply of gorgeous, well-crafted lingerie out there, and that means I’m always on the lookout for my next purchase. But as I become more environmentally-conscious, I’ve had to ask myself how my lingerie obsession has impacted the rest of the world.
