Our Sustainable Valentine’s Day Lingerie Gift Guide

Want to snazz up your undergarments this V-Day with a dash of sustainability? Discover our sizzling Valentine’s Day lingerie gift guide for love day and beyond.

Sustainable lingerie to spice up your V-Day

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. At Good On You, we like seeing Valentine’s Day as a day of appreciation, showing the people around us we love them: it can be a partner or perhaps more importantly, ourselves.

And while we don’t believe you have to gift something to someone to show you love them (love languages, anyone?), gifts can be a nice way of showing love, and you might well want to treat your SO or yourself by buying a little something special.

And that little something could be lingerie, a popular gift idea for the holiday. The mentality around lingerie has shifted from how it makes you look to how it makes you feel. These days, whether someone else is going to see your delicate garments isn’t important—it’s about decorating your body in a way that makes you feel confident, comfortable, and sexy, without the need for third-party validation. But totally show it off if you want to.

So, if you want to gift lingerie this Valentine’s Day, why not go for more sustainable options? There are beautiful, ethical, and sustainable lingerie brands you can confidently treat yourself and others to while protecting the planet and its inhabitants, and what’s more loving than that?

We’ve put together our sustainable lingerie gift guide with 14 of our favourite sustainable lingerie brands, catering to an array of personalities, body types, and styles. So whether you’re looking for fancy lace or a simpler approach, we’ve got you covered…or not *wink*.
