From Ahon’s buttery sets to Fruity Booty’s experimental silhouettes, Vogue Philippines gives you a rundown of eco-friendly lingerie brands.
Looking to be more eco-conscious with your shopping? Individuals are looking towards circularity as the future of fashion with rental services and vintage fashion brands exponentially growing in the last decade. Shoppers are also purchasing with intention, with efforts to build sustainable wardrobes so it’s only fitting to start with the basics and consider how intimates play into circularity.
Trying to find sustainable undergarments and lingerie in the Philippines can be daunting, so we’ve provided a list for you with sought-after brands in tow. Take CDLP, whose line of silk-like basic essentials are luxurious yet made from renewable wood sources. Meanwhile, Filipino brand Ahon’s buttery pieces are made from bamboo fabrics. Below, four eco-friendly labels that ship to the Philippines.
In need of lounge-y briefs that don’t skimp on comfort? This Swedish label brings silk-like underwear in the form of boxer briefs, high hipsters, and Y-briefs, fusing luxury and athletic intimates in an array of monochrome shades. CDLP’s undergarments are also made from Lyocell—a material that is derived from renewable wood sources—ensuring each pair of undies is sustainably-made. Sumptuous and comfortable with a satiny feel, every undergarment is future-oriented with the hopes of revolutionizing underwear. Plus, it’s anti-bacterial too. Available here.
Looking for a vivid set of underwear that enhances your natural shape? Local label Ahon offers styles like the Araw, Dagat, and Tala, that hug the body in all the right curves. One of the brand’s sets, the Luna, is modular and can be styled eight different ways. With flattering silhouettes in rich and bold hues, Ahon celebrates every body and every lifestyle. For the eco-conscious shopper, the label’s line of cozy foundational pieces are made from bamboo fabric (derived from the pulp of bamboo grass) making each piece breathable and ideal for the tropical weather here in the Philippines. These pieces truly feel like a second skin. Available here.
For those who love to make a statement with their lingerie but still focus on comfort, look no further. Retro Hollywood glamour meets joy-inducing prints in female-led lingerie label Fruity Booty. The UK-based brand brings experimental silhouettes to the forefront with eccentric details on comfortable designs. Created from deadstock materials, the brand partners with a community of like-minded creatives to offer limited-edition capsules. You can find vintage-inspired Frilli Vanilli sets in candy-colored tones and sensual floral lingerie with plenty of ruffles—we suggest trying the ultra-sweet thongs paired with lace-trimmed bras. Available here.
Triangle bralettes have been all the rage on the runways (as seen on Miu Miu and Michael Kors). If you want to cop a similar look, Copenhagen-based label Organic Basics is known for their Organic Cotton Triangle Bras and their Tencel Lite bras that offer light support and practicality. Through minimalist undergarments made from organic cotton, the brand has base layers that can be used from day-to-night. Caring for the environment in more ways than one, even their website has a lower carbon footprint than conventional sites (with the e-commerce site using green energy and minimal data). In every aspect of the supply chain, the label is transparent about their environmental impact. From recycled materials to regenerative agriculture, Organic Basics offers more sustainable options for the normal consumer. Available here.
