I try to buy second-hand whenever possible but underwear is one item I would personally not buy used. For those of you who are with me, I compiled a list of sustainable underwear brands to choose from!
One thing I really look for when shopping for undies is how cute they are. For some reason, when I think of sustainability I think of unflattering shapes and weird patterns. Why should we compromise feeling cute and sexy to help the word? Below are cute sustainable underwear brands I found!

My Favorite Thing – Low Rise Thong in Butterscotch
Made Trade is an online shop with a variety of products all made sustainably and ethically! From houseware to well undies they have a ton. Definitely check them out.
In regards to underwear they have some from the brand “Knicky” that are made of 95% cotton and run about $13. They also carry a brand “Mary Young” made out of Bamboo that will cost you around $50. A little steeper price tag but also a more sustainable product. I would go with the $13 pair personally!
Thanks for reading!
