10 Ethical Lingerie Brands That Are Smoking Hot

These super sexy ethical lingerie brands are kind to the planet – but DO cause a kind of global ‘warming’! Heh heh..

By Paige French

“You know what’s sexy?’ asked one of our celeb faves, Sean Penn. “Giving a sh*t.” It stands to reason then that by wearing sexy ethical lingerie brands, you’ve just made yourself ten times hotter. To Sean Penn, at least!

But what does wearing ethical lingerie mean?

For one, avoiding some of the biggest brands in the industry. Yeah, Victoria’s Secret – I’m talking to you! Not only does this brand make their bras and panties with unpaid prison labour; not only have they held horrendously sexist catwalk shows (which are mainly attended by pervy males), but the owner of the brand, Leslie Wexner, has been deeply tied to the Epstein sex trafficking scandal. Ewww!

Whilst some may still favour the likes of Victoria’s Secret because they associate ethical lingerie with drab designs and saggy natural fabrics, that’s actually very far from reality. As these 7 smoking hot sustainable lingerie brands are proving beyond a doubt.

Modern, ethical lingerie brands that use slinky fabrics, gorgeous cuts and perfectly placed padding are sure to make you feel super seductive. They’re also guaranteed to light any man’s fire this Valentine’s Day….or any day!

And of course, they’re all made in local factories – or sometimes, in small workshops – where employees get a fair wage, guaranteed.

In short, these brands ‘give a s*it’!
