Sustainable underwear brands guide
Curating a sustainable wardrobe has been a journey for the past few years, as I’ve waited for old clothing to wear down before buying something new. When it came to purchasing new underwear for my dresser, I had a few brands in mind that I wanted to try but have done the research, tried out a few, and came to some staple pieces. The video above is a review of the four brands I currently own, along with some details regarding packaging, price, fabric and fit. I’ve included some details below regarding the items I have, as well as a guide of alternate underwear brands if you’re looking for something different. Hope you find this guide and the others I’ve linked below helpful for your underwear research! Brands with an * indicate that there are both mens and women’s products.
