Here’s an interesting fact: Did you know that only 3% of underwear is sustainably sourced?
That blew my mind, especially as someone who tries to make sustainable choices whenever possible. (I know many of you share that value!)
But here’s the tricky thing: In my experience, many sustainable clothing brands use muted, neutral colors for their products, and I tend to like brighter, bolder options (especially as a winter!). That’s why I was thrilled to discover the women-owned, UK-based brand Stripe & Stare. They make underwear, PJs, and loungewear that are sustainable, SO comfortable, and available in fun, bright colors.
They’re also a B. Corp (meaning they have met rigorous standards when it comes to how they treat their people, the planet, and their profits) — a designation I love to look for when I shop.
Here’s what their website says: “Our underwear, loungewear and sleepwear are for the sustainable shopper who doesn’t want to compromise when it comes to style, sustainability and most of all comfort.”
They check all the boxes!
Their products are made of TENCEL Micro Modal, which is made sustainably in Austria from Beechwood Trees and is scientifically proven to be three times softer than cotton, wears better, and is just as breathable as fresh air in a forest of responsibly planted trees. (Speaking of trees…they plant one for every order placed!)
So far I’ve loved these Stripe & Stare items:
–Thongs: I wear exclusively thong underwear and have for years, so I’m PICKY about them. I’ve been so happy with the Stripe & Stare thongs — they are cute, comfy, and wear seamlessly under clothes (leggings included). I sized up after reading reviews and love the fit!
–PJs: I am IN LOVE with my Stripe & Stare pajamas! I have one racerback tank + shorts set so far, but will most definitely be ordering more. They’re soft, breathable, and have just the right amount of stretch/give to them.
–Sweatshirt: I got the raspberry color and it’s adorable and SO soft! I love how many colors this is available in, too. I stayed true to size on this item and am happy with the fit.
