They say that in springtime, a young man’s fancy turns to love–and the same certainly goes for women! Slipping into beautiful and sexy luxury eco-lingerie creations will definitely make you feel ready for a spring fling. It’s time to shed the terrycloth robe for something lighter and lovelier.
In this springtime eco-lingerie special, we present five beautiful brands that are sexy and sustainable – from classic white to brilliant colourful hues to suit individual women’s tastes.
These exquisite lingerie masterpieces are designed to enhance your femininity. Using ethically sourced fabrics and environmentally friendly components, the collection showcases beautiful handcrafted elements including: delicate crocheted buttons using bio-degradable thread and fabric, ‘Beeralu’ lace, and silk. Charini is an ethical brand that employs fair-trade policies and collaborates with the National Craft Council of Sri Lanka. The brand uses mainly basic monochrome, meaning there is plenty of white lingerie to fit under the season’s hottest colour: white.
2. Peau Ethique
Leave it to the French to add a bit of ‘ooh la la’ to lingerie. Their pink-hued “Sublime” collection features sexy balcony bras, stockings, and of course, French knickers, and is made using organic fair trade cotton that exudes elegance. This organic French brand also creates lingerie using Pacific silk and is also a certified FairTrade brand.
3. Marion May
Creatively cut and fashionably designed, Marion May celebrates the feminine form creating provocative looks, using surplus luxury fabrics she collects from ateliers. Marion infuses reclaimed silks, cottons, or jerseys, adding glamour to the boudoir.
