When it’s time to strip off at the end of the day, slip into underwear that leaves you feeling and looking cool and comfortable in your own skin.
More than a functional, everyday staple, Bamboo underwear has the unique power of sculpting your body with its soft-to-the-touch fibres that blend sustainability with an enduring design.
While there are many fabrics to choose from — including cotton, wool, modal and polyester — there is no going past Bamboo underwear’s benefits.
From detailing its lifestyle and environmental advantages, listing how to best care for your collection and what to consider when choosing between the various cuts, we’ve assembled the ultimate guide to buying bamboo underwear. Read on to experience it for yourself!
At Bodypeace Bamboo Clothing, we have made Bamboo garments our business, literally. When it came to designing our collections and developing our brand, we considered the various textiles available. Measuring them against their softness, durability, functionality and impact on the environment, it was easy to see why Bamboo was the clear winner, and we quickly sought to make the best Bamboo underwear in Australia.
Why bamboo? When you’re dressing for yourself, Bamboo underwear offers a suite of experiential benefits to help you feel confident and empowered — they include:
Natural Bamboo underwear comes in various fits and cuts to match your comfort and aesthetic.
Some of the common styles you can choose from include:
The best Bamboo underwear in Australia isn’t just soft and functional; it helps reduce your carbon footprint and limit environmental impact. In the wild, Bamboo is relatively self-sufficient, needing little water to grow and mature. Cultivated Bamboo that’s grown for harvesting generally requires shallow watering once a week — less if grown in tropical regions.
Cotton, on the other hand, is an incredibly thirsty crop, needing 200 times more water than Bamboo. As reported by the UN, it has led to significant ecosystem degradation where bodies of water like the Aral Sea have reduced half their size as a direct result of cotton farming and irrigation.
Bamboo is incredibly fast-growing, capable of growing up to one metre per day and reaching its full height in two to three months, making it a highly sustainable regenerative resource to cultivate for clothing and textile production. Additionally, the bamboo plant can regenerate and be harvested every season with little need for farmer intervention and without the use of chemicals for regrowth.
While it’s important to plan to be more sustainable, producers and retailers need to back it up. At Bodypeace Bamboo, we’re proud to have instituted eco-friendly standards where we readily share where our bamboo fibres are sourced from. We work with fair trade partners who responsibly harvest bamboo and ensure its workers are paid a fair living wage.
Certified by ECOCERT ICO and OEKO-TEX Standard 100, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing you’re outfitted in the best Bamboo underwear in Australia.
To preserve its plush feel and colour, following your item’s laundering instructions will give you durable wear for years to come.
For the best results, follow our general instructions below:
It doesn’t have to be said, but your underwear should be worn only once. You might consider changing them throughout your day if you sweat a lot, it’s the time of the month or you just had a heavy session at yoga. To ensure you’re always outfitted in your best, you should have at least 12 to 14 pairs in rotation, so you can hold off before it’s time to start a new laundry cycle or to replace a damaged pair.
However, frequent washing and heavy activity during sports, can leave your natural Bamboo underwear looking less than perfect. To ensure you’re always dressed in a clean and hygienic pair that retains its colour, you should replace them every 12 months.
When you’re looking to refresh your top drawer with new intimate undergarments that are soft and reliable, Bodypeace Bamboo Clothing offers an expansive range of organically grown Bamboo underwear for men and women. Durably made and soft to the touch, experience the difference they can make at any of our boutiques across Australia and online.
