5 Ethical and Sustainable Underwear Brands
by Caroline Bower
There are certain things that just don’t make sense to purchase preowned. Underwear and bras are right near the top of that list. One of the questions I receive the most frequently is “Where can I find ethically and sustainably made underwear?
I scoured the internet and found some great options, and I added as many discounts for you as I could!
Sustainably and ethically-made products cost more than the underwear you buy impulsively at Target (Oh, is that just me who can't pass up that display?).
But when the company is obsessive about creating pieces that’ll last, you ultimately spend a lot less over the lift of your garments. Think of ethical and sustainable clothing as an investment. And the low price point of underwear makes it a great place to start jumping into the world of sustainable and ethically made clothing! Small, gradual swaps can add up to great impact!
Disclaimer: I haven’t personally tried any of these brands. Over time, I’ll be trying them all myself, and editing this post in the future to share my personal experience. I’ll note how well they hold up to multiple washes, as well as fit observations. In the meantime, I’m utilizing online reviews where I can.
Knickey traces their entire supply chain, from the field (an organic cotton farm in India) to your mailbox. They’re passionate about what they do, and it shows!
Their cotton is GOTS certified, they’re Fair Trade certified, and they’re Oeko-Tex certified!
I’m going to start with the $13 Low rise thong in Eden.

3. Pact Organic
All Pact products are made with organic cotton in a fair trade factory. Organic cotton is important because it helps cut down on the staggering amount of toxins and pesticides that are utilized in the production of conventional cotton.
Some reviews state that their items don’t hold up well after several times through the washer.
I haven’t personally tried this brand yet, but I’ll report back with my own experience.

Boody uses Bamboo - a highly renewable resource - to create super soft and breathable basics. They carry seven underwear styles in a range of neutral colors.
The reviews I read raved about Boody! I cannot wait to try them for myself!
I’ve never heard anything negative about this company, and I’ve heard a whole lot of positive! They use recycled water bottles to create soft textiles at a fair trade facility in Taiwan.
They carry a wide range of sizes, styles and colors!
