I get so many questions about this topic, so I hope you find this video helpful!
There are some great conscious brands (and more are starting up!) but finding eco-friendly and ethically made lingerie can be a challenge, especially if you’re looking for specific styles or non-standard sizes. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, don’t forget about longevity and care with any garment (eco brand or not) as a way to have a greener wardrobe!

and ROTATE your bras! never wear the same bra 2 days in a row. give the elastic a day or 2 to rest. it will last so much longer.

Yes! This is my #1 asked question too. I love Pact for underwear & socks, but have been looking for sustainable bra options. Thank you for these resources! ❤️

Hey this comment is unrelated to this video BUT I just finished watching “Minimalism – A Documentary” on Netflix and I noticed that there’s a clip of one of your videos on it! I was like “heyyy, I know her!” even though I don’t really know you in real life haha. Anyway, I just wanted to say that your videos are inspiring and I loved seeing your appearance in the minimalism documentary! <3 <3 Read more Reply 24 PrincessAngelStar6 months ago Amazing! You inspire me and I love the way you talk an explain things, so calm and on point I'm working on becomming a little bit more eco friendly every day Reply 14 My Green Closet6 months ago That's so nice to hear! ❤️ Reply TheEmzies6 months ago I love Thunderpants! Organic cotton underwear made by a family-owned business in New Zealand. Thunderpants make underwear that doesn't ride up. www.thunderpants.co.nz - they ship internationally. Also Alas The Label Reply 7 arrozblanco76 months ago I love how you think of everyone in your videos like the nude shades or sizes, like i didnt even think about that.Its really nice of you. Reply 5 Poppet CrabappleToadflax6 months ago organic and ethically made try econica on etsy Reply 4 Tara P6 months ago My experience has been a real struggle. I've tried so many different brands and types. I was always buying Victoria's Secret but I wanted to try more sustainable options and everything I've chosen within the past 2 years just hasn't worked out and and I've wasted so much time, money, and products 😥. The only thing that works for me is the Victoria's Secret cotton underwear and their Body by Victoria wireless bras. I own 2 nude and one black and for the underwear I buy them when they are on sale 10 for $35. I take excellent care of the bras and I recently replaced them this year the old ones lasted me 5 before I needed them replaced and the underwear I usually only need to buy once every other year.

Love your channel and the inspiration you've given me. Reply 4 Ellie Taylor6 months ago I have some bras from a brand called Boody - they're bamboo crop top style bras. They also sell leggings and cami tops. Fairly sure they're Australian. I'm a UK 36C and find them comfy, not sure what they would be like for a larger cup size though. Will definitely look through the links, there's a good few brands i hadn't heard of, thank you! Reply 4 Itsabitkitsch6 months ago Yes! I love the Boody brand! Just to add to your comment, the leggings can be a tad see through but if you order a size up then its fine. Other than that I can't fault their clothing/underwear 🙂 :) Reply 1 Ada3 months ago you lost me at silk 😔 Reply 3 Ana6 months ago This is definitely helpful, but unfortunately I still don't have a lot of sustainable options for my bra size. I'm definitely in the "buy 2-3 great quality bras and baby them so they last as long as possible" camp; unfortunately I need a lot of support, so even my best quality bras tend to wear out in a year or less. If an ethical, sustainable company made flattering, supportive, size 30FF bras, they would get ALL my money. Read more Reply 3 VeganGorge6 months ago I haven't purchased anything new in a while, but last time I went for Boody underwear, the company website seems to say all the right things but it's hard to know. I know SeaSalt also do some underwear and they're made in Cornwall, so are sweatshop free. Reply 3 glitterglueable6 months ago (edited) Great video! I will need to replace my bra very soon and I very much want to have a more eco friendly/sustainable/ethical bra, but I need the support of foam and an underwire. So like you said, I just have to find the best option, because there likely won't be a perfect one. Considering my bra size is a 42F... wish me luck! Reply 3 CassyCrass6 months ago Your best bet will likely be hand made so you can get custom sizes made 🙂 Maybe you can find someone on Etsy Reply 2 glitterglueable6 months ago CassyCrass thanks 🙂 I will look into it! Reply Poppet CrabappleToadflax6 months ago I bought a cute pdf pattern on etsy and for 2+years now have sewn my own bras and undies using some new cottons with vintage linen inserts as features. they're surprising easily and incredibly long lasting Reply 2 View all 3 replies Lighter Gait1 month ago Could you give me some tips on how you do that?! So foreign to me! Reply Poppet CrabappleToadflax1 month ago +Lighter Gait just search on etsy.com pdf bra or bralette or pdf underwear. There are quite a few sellers. Reply Clockwork Tangerine6 months ago Wow I've never even thought about this. Thank you! Reply 2 Amanda Pachomski2 months ago This was SO helpful! Thank you!! I just ordered stuff from Luva Huva and Pact- can't wait to update my wardrobe! PS I'm supposed to add that Manuela (the Girl Gone Green) sent me to your channel and I'm so glad she did! Reply 1 My Green Closet2 months ago Yay! So happy she sent you over and that you found the video helpful! 😊 I hope you enjoy the pieces you got! Reply 2 Sandra Wilkerson4 months ago BRAS! What a nightmare for us gals that are well endowed. I decided to find a bra that let your breast hang in a natural way. I have fibromyalgia so bras are painful. I found a small company that makes a cami bra called Breastnest. It's lovely Check it out. Reply 1 Mathilde C5 months ago I'm french and I just discover the brand "do you Green" it's organic and made in France :) Reply 1 Tiziana Braun5 months ago I have no sustainably made underwear in my closet at this point, but what I do to shop less is that I sort through my closet and pick 5 Bras and matching undies and I put the others in a box (with my out-of-season-clothes). So when I am changing my seasonal clothes I suddenly see underwear that I have not worn in 6 months so I get excited all over again to have them back 😉 This prevents me from boredom and therefore from the urge to buy more :) Read more Reply 1
