If you're looking for frilly, lacy, and seductive, the ethical fashion market has got you covered.
But what if you just want some everyday underwear without the fuss?
It took me years to find the brands that offer what I'm looking for: neutral colors, no bows, nature-derived fabrics. I look for styles that don't show under clothing and work with any silhouette or style, so thongs and full coverage are preferred over "cheeky" styles that can ride up.
I also look for fair price points because I've found that many fair trade underwear brands charge more for a single pair of underwear than you would pay for an artisan made dress (I think this is because, historically, organic underwear has appealed primarily to a higher end customer). You'll still pay about double Victoria's Secret prices with the brands below, but that's pretty decent considering the quality is better.
MY TOP PICKS FOR ETHICAL EVERYDAY UNDERWEAR
Made with organic cotton at an ethical factory in the USA, Majamas offers classic thongs, cheeky bikinis, hipsters, and comfort bras in solids and patterns in addition to loungewear and casual clothing.
My Picks (shown in image):
Danish brand Organic Basics makes underwear and tshirts in both organic and technical fabrics
A favorite among ethical bloggers and conscious consumers, PACT sells socks, undies, loungewear, and dresses in organic cotton.
Made from an organic/bamboo blend, Orgotton creates thong and hipster panties out of off-cuts from their clothing line.
Boodywear makes panties, leggings, and bras with seamless, chemical free bamboo viscose. I find their options particularly useful under fabrics that cling.
Everlane's supima cotton underwear come in bikini, hipster, and thong cut, and they also sell bodysuits and bralettes. They've become my very favorite for comfort and minimal seam lines.
