Organic Fashion Gets Intimate - Women's Lingerie Gets a Green Makeover
Eco-fashion is finally venturing into the world of organic intimates. FaeriesDance.com is pulling together bras, panties, and camis from a number of environmentally-oriented designers to offer an extensive line of organic intimates all in one place.

Bras, camisoles and panties are now being offered in organic cotton, bamboo and soy fabrics. Organic cotton is a great choice for lingerie, because who wants there panties full of pesticides and chemicals?! Other eco-textiles are also being introduced into intimates to get that same beauty, softness and variety that can make a woman feel wonderful all day long. Bamboo is actually a member of the grass family, and is the world’s fastest growing plant. Bamboo textiles are surprisingly soft and sensual. Bamboo is more supple and lighter weight than cotton, making it ideally suited for intimates. Soy fabrics, jokingly referred to as Tofu clothes, are created from the fibrous casing of the soy bean during Tofu manufacturing. The fabric is unexpectedly pleasant (definitely better than the Tofu it came from!) with a clingy stretch to it that it also makes it a fun and exotic choice for undergarments.
A number of fashion designers are picking one specialty and starting out with a small line of lingerie to see how the market will react. One online retailer, FaeriesDance.com, is pulling together the bits and pieces to provide an enticing shopping experience for “light green” shoppers and devout tree-huggers alike. “Organic intimates are just getting started. We’re finding lovely items here and there, but few manufacturers have taken the plunge to really offer a whole range of styles, so we’re putting it together ourselves.” says FaeriesDance.com’
