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.
In January of this year, Hopeless released the Garden of Earthly Delights collection, also known as G.O.E.D. It’s an exploration of complexity, opposition, and contradiction. According to the brand, this is a collection for the angel in hell or the devil in heaven.
Anyone with an interest in fetish lingerie or sustainable fashion should have The End on their radar. This is one of the few brands that boasts a commitment to both. The End was started by Bei Kuo in 2016 in New York City.
Silent Arrow is a brand which has only recently been brought to my attention, though it was launched in December 2016. However, I’m very glad to finally be aware of them: both because I enjoy the lingerie, and also because I highly appreciate the social consciousness of Silent Arrow.
