Scratchy hemp undies? Basic organic cotton bras? Nope! There’s more sexy sustainable lingerie available than you’d think!
Think sustainable lingerie means an organic cotton bra and panties that sag on your butt after one wash? Think again. Ethical lingerie is getting sexier – far, far sexier! Vintage lace, peace silk, recycled elastics and a whole lot of sass are the main ingredients, while styles involve keyhole cuts, ‘undo me NOW’ ribbons, cheeky pussy prints and even some couture-worthy embroidery.
And the craftsmanship? We’re talking ultra-luxury here. Peace silks cut into vintage knickers. Recycled fibres and handmade lace delicately revealing sensual details. Basically, these are fabrics you’ll want to smush against your skin. And his!
Forget those sweet ‘n’ innocent bralets and eco-friendly organic cotton pants you wouldn’t even want to be seen wearing in the gym locker room – these sexy sustainable lingerie labels are super-fitting, super-luscious and super-fierce.
Sustainable Lingerie Label Lust – The Fierce Edit
Handmade, couture lingerie with a heritage dating back to 1890? Why, yes, madam! Sexy sustainable lingerie doesn’t get prettier than the offerings of Lucile and Co.
The brand harkens back to fashion industry pioneer Lady Duff Gordon and remains quintessentially on the track of slow fashion, ensuring each highly luxuriously silky piece is made with the same care and quality afforded to the private clientele of master couturiers at the turn of the 20th Century, and often from exactly the same types of olde worlde, all natural materials. Each piece is handmade in small batches in the UK.
The world’s favourite adult shop now has sexy sustainable lingerie, too!
Lovehoney has long been famous for selling naughty sex toys, lubes and bondage gear. But now, the brand is using recycled seamfree fabrics, renewed lace and regenerated nylon to design their super saucy bras and panties. This means they’re using materials that would otherwise end up in landfill or the oceans. From their elastics to their compostable packaging, Lovehoney is really making an effort to be more sustainable than ever!
But that’s not all: no matter what your shape or size, you’re sure to find lingerie at Lovehoney that will transform you into the sex goddess you are. After all, they carry UK sizes 8-26!
There’s something contradictory about Julie May lingerie. How can it be so ladylike, and so incredibly hot at the same time?
That may be a riddle we’ll never answer. But there are some truths about this British based brand you need to know. For example, they’re proud to use certified Organic Pima Cotton as the main fabric of their bra sets, and 100% pure silk for inner linings. Which means the fabric that’s right next to your most sensitive parts is not only as soft as a kiss, but it’s certified allergy-free, too.
This emerging luxurious sexy sustainable lingerie brand will literally make you lust after art and nature. Inspired by artist Henri Rousseau, Studio Pia’s first collection features embroidered florals and silky greens incorporated into sheer panels, ultra cool cuts and adjustable sections, ensuring they are easily adapted to flatter a range of different body types. Nothing was left as an afterthought – even the little hardware adorning designs is made of pure, ethically sourced, 24k gold. Oh my!
And the thing we love most about Studio Pia lingerie? For every product sold, they plant one tree in the Indonesian rainforests with One Tree Planted, in an effort to help combat deforestation caused by forest fires, the palm oil industry and illegal mining.
Ever had that moment when you realize fumbling with your suspender belt hooks perhaps isn’t so sexy? When lingerie gets too complicated, we welcome brands like Lilipiache, where cute meets comfortable, ensuring the Valentine’s tease is tangle free.
These pretty little things are made from bamboo viscose, organic cotton and low impact, certified organic dyes. Simple, ethical, perfectly sexy sustainable lingerie.
This is lingerie’s first step into spirituality! Besides using exclusively Fair Trade practices and environmentally friendly fabrics, this unique brand explores the meaning of empowerment by harnessing the energy of the different Chakra centres through the use of hand sewn Reiki attuned gemstones for a unique design twist – the extra benefits kind. Yep, you can forget vibrators – it’s even sexier to get root chakra vibrations!
There are two ways to do transparency; and while we’re pretty acquainted with one, the other always seems to come as a happy surprise. Pesticide free organic cottons, Oeko-Tex certified dyes, and extra care to stay away from nasty hormone upsetting textiles that somehow still find their way into our clothes are only some of the key features that make Olly Lingerie great.
This is sexy sustainable lingerie at its best. Classic and comfortable enough to wear every day, but with gorgeous tiny details – delicate lace under here, an unusual pattern there – that make an ultra feminine statement.
Hands up if you’re a fan of Gina Rodriguez, star of Jane the Virgin? Personally, I love that show, and even more so now that I know Gina is one of the co-founders of this brand.
Naja produces sexy sustainable lingerie inspired by a deep need to make the world a better place – and spread that desire through cheeky design. Collections offer fun and vibrant digitally printed underwear teamed with lacy bralettes, whilst paying careful attention to bring water pollution almost down to zero.
Need more? Naja employs women of underdeveloped countries, paying them above market wages, providing health care, and providing school supplies, meals, uniforms and books to their children. And we love their Oriental and…’feline’ pussy prints! Meow!
Lingerie classics like handmade silk pieces never go out of style. Ayten Gasson has firmly established a reputation for supporting its local UK industry since its inception in 2005. Usually made from upcycled vintage lace and organic peace silk, Gasson’s designs feature beautiful oriental motifs, acute attention to detail, and feel oh-so-good against your skin – and his!
Bondage harnesses, vegan leather finishings, bullet bras and slits that leave little to the imagination. This ethical, vegan lingerie label gets straight to the point! And that point is to awaken the senses with bespoke luxury lingerie, while remaining absolutely sweatshop and animal free. I’d say this is sexy sustainable lingerie at its sauciest!
Our final sexy sustainable lingerie brand is Studio Asanwa.
This Dubai based online lingerie shop is dedicated to providing the sexiest, most sustainable lingerie to women. It carries a wide variety of brands, including Studio Pia (mentioned above), Chichi Castelnango, Dora Larsen and others. What each brand has in common is a dedication to 100% ethical, fully traceable production, uniquely chic, French-inspired cuts, and the use of sustainable materials, such as peace silk and upcycled fabrics.
