Underwear. Everyone wears it – well, almost everyone – but did you know your undies may be doing you and our planet more harm than good?

We’re told to refresh our underwear every 6-9 months, so it comes as no surprise that we often resort to quantity over quality when purchasing new underwear. Lace, lycra, polyester and nylon are just a few of the synthetic materials our underwear is often made from, and depending on how sensitive you are to particular fabrics, these synthetic materials may not be doing great things for your delicates. 

Our discarded underwear also contributes to the 23 kilograms of clothing each Aussie sends to landfill every year. However, if you’re wanting to minimise this figure, we suggest opting for eco-friendly underwear that is not only better for your delicates but can also return to the earth (or rather, the compost bin) after use. Opting for natural materials like OKEO-TEX certified bamboo and GOTS certified organic cotton will do wonders for both you and the planet. It’s a win-win.

If the goal of eco-friendly Australian lingerie is to be cute and comfortable, then Lela Lingerie has it nailed.

What’s more is the Lela Lingerie sustainably-made bras and undies aren’t just designed in Australia, they’re made onshore too. Felicity, Lela Linger’s founder, designs and manufactures her line in a small factory in Sydney, and regularly makes site visits, so she knows exactly what conditions her makers are working in. Love that for us.

United States Based







WAMA Underwear


Location | United States
Size range | XS-4XL

What makes WAMA Underwear’s eco-friendly underwear so great? All of their products, including women’s bralettes, men’s briefs and everything in between, are made from hemp fabric. Hemp is a magical fabric that’s naturally antibacterial, with anti-odour properties; it’s comfortable, breathable and gets softer with every wash; but most importantly, hemp is organic and incredibly sustainable. In fact, WAMA’s hemp and organic cotton fabrics use only about 3% the water conventional cotton uses.

Very few fabrics are antibacterial and those that are either include chemicals or they aren’t as durable as hemp. So now WAMA Underwear is on a mission to pioneer the hemp underwear industry by making the best hemp eco-friendly underwear in the world whilst constantly improving the fit, function and design. They also have a rigorous and lengthy design process to ensure people fall in love with hemp on their first wear. We sure did.
