*WARNGING; LONG AND WILL LIKELY CONVINCE YOU TO BUY THESE*
I decided to start a journey into purchasing more sustainable clothing. Though there are many options for sustainable underwear, these were one of few that were not 100% cotton underwear. I chose these because organic cotton (even though it is organic) does still use a VERY VERY large amount of resources to harvest and create clothing from. Hemp has a much lower impact. Hemp also becomes softer with each wash/use, is antibacterial (so it prevents odors/ infections), etc. I was skeptical at first because hemp seems as though it would be a rough fabric; BUT these are the most comfortable underwear I have worn in a very long time! Now, this is coming from someone who has only recently started a sustainable journey (and previous underwear purchases were at Victorias Secret), but I am very happy with this purchase. I ordered both the briefs and the thongs; they are both very comfortable for different reasons. The only downside is the limited amount of colors available (even a nude or a heather grey would add some versatility), but that is really all that comes to mind. Though personally, I purchased these so that I could replace my underwear that I typically would wear during "that time of the month," so the black adds some extra protection against staining. The sizing is very similar to that of Victorias Secret; I would wear a small in thong and medium in briefs for VS and these fit the same. These are great quality and worth the price; especially considering the amount of energy saved compared to the pricing and (resource) cost of alternative options. I believe they will last a long time.
