Don’t let the garments that sit closest to your skin fall by the wayside on your sustainable fashion journey. In fact, the underwear drawer is a great place to start. Here’s the lowdown on brands making lower-impact bras and bralettes.

Responsibly-made bras and bralettes

Bras are an intimate and tricky purchase at the best of times. Ideally, you want to find bras that are comfortable, flattering, and good quality, since they are worn day in and day out. The hunt becomes even more challenging when you want to source sustainable bras!

Don’t let your underwear be an afterthought on your ethical fashion journey. In fact, we advocate for starting simply. Think of bras as one of the basics to kickstart your conscious closet. With everything from super soft bamboo bras, to ethically made lacy lingerie, to inclusively sized and coloured nude bras, this list has you (partially) covered. Read on to discover the best sustainable bras from Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, Europe and the UK, that will see you supporting people, the planet, animals, and—you know—yourself.
