Where I Shop for Ethical and Organic Underwear
If you’re looking for frilly, lacy, and seductive, the ethical fashion market has got you covered.
But what if you just want some everyday underwear without the fuss?
It took me years to find the ethical and organic underwear brands that offer what I’m looking for: neutral colors, no bows, nature-derived fabrics.
I look for styles that don’t show under clothing and work with any silhouette or style, so thongs and full coverage are preferred over “cheeky” styles that can ride up.
I also look for fair price points because I’ve found that many fair trade underwear brands charge more for a single pair of underwear than you would pay for an artisan made dress. I think this is because, historically, organic underwear has appealed primarily to a higher end customer.
You’ll still pay about double Victoria’s Secret prices with the brands below, but that’s pretty decent considering the quality is better.
My Top Picks for Ethical and Sustainable Intimates
2. Organic Basics
Danish brand Organic Basics makes underwear and tshirts in both GOTS-certified organic cotton and technical fabrics. Their products are PETA approved and made ethically by workers who receive a living wage.
A favorite among ethical bloggers and conscious consumers, PACT sells socks, undies, loungewear, and even a full range of clothing in organic cotton. Plus, they’re fair trade certified.
Boodywear makes panties, leggings, and bras with seamless, chemical free, ethically-harvested, and organic bamboo viscose. I find their options particularly useful under fabrics that cling.
5. WAMA Hemp
Made with less water intensive hemp and organic cotton, WAMA’s underwear is sustainable, practical, and durable.
Offered in a number of on-trend colors and styles, Knickey makes certified organic cotton underwear with a focus on comfort and quality.
7. People Tree
People Tree is known best for being one of the first fair trade clothing brands with a focus on British style. But they also make fair trade, GOTS-certified organic cotton underwear.
A beloved brand in the slow fashion community, ARQ is known for its classic styles made with organic cotton and its really good size range.
