Thoughtful Lingerie and Dainty Delicates

Saturday 3rd February 2018
Delicate lace and eyelash hems are staples in the world of lingerie. But there is a beautiful feeling to wearing an understated garment, one that is pared back, simple and crafted with love and care. Perhaps the words ‘ethical’ and ‘sexy’ are an unlikely combination, but rest assured, there’s a new wave of minimal basics on the lingerie scene that are shaping a natural beauty aesthetic. We take you through just a few of the brands that create ethical under garments (and look mighty fine doing it).
