SUSTAINABLE SMALLS: ETHICAL LINGERIE
We have to admit, sustainable fashion was not not on the top of our minds when doing our quarterly online Victoria Secret shop, but these sustainable lingerie and get-your-sexy-on brands made us forget our high-street lingerie addiction. Now we are hooked on some of the loveliest brands spearheading sustainable fashion from London to Singapore.

For those wanting to start sexy with lingerie, Gilda & Pearl makes beautiful pieces in their atelier in the UK, hand cut using traditional methods such as hand pattern drafting, French seaming of the silk, and special lace applications. Each piece is so divine you may not have the heart to cover up, instead opting in for an evening of lounging at home. For the ultimate pressie to yourself, or as a gift, each piece is literally a work of art - whether it's lingerie or gorgeous loungewear.

Terie is Singapore's first sustainable lingerie brand, and it has top drawer status in our closet. Achingly comfortable, and made from sustainable bamboo, a rapidly renewable resource which requires little or no herbicides and pesticides to thrive. Terie is a real find for those that find underwire bras uncomfortable. The fabric is extremely breathable and the design provides support for all shapes and sizes - you deserve the breast!
