A 3 pack of everyday undies in black to gift yourself or a friend who cares about the evils of landfill. Made in premium Lenzing Tencel, knitted and GOTs dyed here in Australia, the elastic and sewing threads are Cradle 2 Cradle gold certified, and the labelling is pad-print using OEKO TEX inks . All of these components are chosen for their ability to break down in nature at end-of-life and leave no trace. These briefs match our original The Very Good Bra in black tencel.

Our classic boy-leg brief has elastic only in the waist to give you maximum comfort and breathability, with no VPL. (Note - customer feedback tells us these briefs aren't best for days you are wearing a pad because legs aren't elasticated). These briefs contain no spandex to keep them fully compostable, and so have a looser fit. If you're on the cusp of sizes, buy a size down. 

We fundamentally believe that everything we make in the 21st Century should be designed with its end in sight. No excuses.



Body Fabric - 100% Tencel using Lenzing fibres, knitted and GOTs dyed in Melbourne by MTK

Sewing thread - 100% Cellulose from Crafil in Portugal

Elastic - Cradle to Cradle Gold certified elastic from Inogema in Germany

Labelling - Low impact Pad Print labelling at our factory using Ink Cups Sapphire Ink - Oeko-Tex certified

With briefs, again, no spandex means less stretch and we also don't use stretch thread as conventional undies do (it's plastic), so you may need to size up. If pulled on too roughly or stretched on the waist, the thread can break and you don't want that!

All our briefs except Vintage Peach, Liberty Paisley and our 3 pack of Black Tencel Basic Briefs are elasticated at the leg as well as the waist. Many of our customers like the loose leg style and if so, these last two are best for you.

Customer Reviews

They are so comfy I love them!

Over the years I’ve looked for underwears which are comfy and made of natural materials, and I think I’ve found them! Are these a bit pricy? Yes. But it brings happiness to me that I am feeling comfortable wearing them and also supporting the business which cares so much about sustainability. Trust me these are worth it.

Love that they are compostable, that was why I bought them, first new pair of undies in 8 years so really needed some new ones. Unfortunately they have retired straight to bed time undies as I cant wear them without them giving me a wedgie. I went the size 10 (normally and 8 or 10 in elasticated brands) fits fine around the waist band but after 20 steps they ride up and thats where they stay. I had hand sewn a pair of merino wool boy leg undies and they wedgie too, so I thought I would buy some professsionaly made but same issue, I guess if your butt looks like mine you may have the same problem.

Hi Jess, I must say I think you look pretty good in these undies! But I'm sorry they're not wearing as you'd wish. We've no elastic in the legs of this style which some customers love as there's no VPL and no pressure, but they're not for everyone I know and I'm sorry they're not for you

Kerry Strzina

I’ve never bought undies that don’t fully cover my cheeks before (I’m 67) but decided to give these a go for the sake of the environment. I thought when I first tried the undies that I’d be pulling them down off my cheeks all day but they stay in place very well and are very comfortable. Thumbs up from me.

Most comfortable undies ever

Fell in love with the Go Slower Pants so when a couple of my other undies reached end of life thought I'd give these a go. They’re wonderful - so good that I got a second pack of 3! Made with the super-softest fabric - they feel quite luxurious on. And quite a sexy cut. And they're compostable! Love them.

Comfy and fab!

Just perfect :)


What is the impact of Covid 19?

Covid has caused ongoing delays to our productions since early 2020. Sadly this can be unpredictable, things are fine and then we are suddenly 2 weeks late. If you have a pre-order, we will always email if there are delays, please check your junk if you've not heard also!  

There is also a major ongoing global issue with logistics. With significantly reduced international and domestic flights happening, it is taking much longer for anything to get anywhere so please bear with us, check your tracking, and reach out if something doesn't look right.

What happens if it doesn't fit?

For bras, we recommend you reach out before buying for the first time if in any doubt. With no spandex and a longer band, our bras can feel firmer on the body and you may want to size up a band if you're on the cusp. Our fit for sleepwear is fairly standard and described in the size guide. All returns and exchanges have to be sent back at the buyer's expense. Unfortunately we cannot take international exchanges at this point but we do take returns.

Can you exchange bottoms?

Please please please try bottoms over your undies! If they don't fit, we can exchange or refund.

What are these garments made of?

All materials for each style are featured on the product pages, but a breakdown is as follows:

Our black bra is made of Australian knitted and dyed Lenzing fibre Tencel, with tree rubber and organic cotton elastic and custom made organic cotton hooks and eyes. Our sewing thread is Tencel and our labels organic cotton dyed with soy based inks, sourced from Europe as we can't find a maker here in Australia.

Our organic cotton bras in a range of colours are made from organic cotton knitted and GOTs dyed here in Australia.

Our sleep wear is made of 100% organic cotton, knitted and organically dyed in Melbourne. Elastic is Cradle to Cradle, made in Germany and compostable. 

Will they break down when they wash?

The great thing about quality cotton and tencel is that they wash and wear beautifully. Although derived from plants, these are premium fabrics from premium suppliers that are built to last. We always recommend a short wash at a low temperature both for maintenance, and because its kinder to the environment. We hope that you will wear the sleep T shirts day and night, to get extra wear out of one wash!

Who pays additional country-specific taxes?

The buyer is responsible for any additional taxes which are due in their country of origin when the parcel is delivered. We sell tax-free to international customers. For most countries except the UK, this isn't an issue as the threshold is high, but please check your local import/sales taxes.

As of late 2021 we are unable to sell and ship to the EU due to the costs of compliance there - sorry! We hope that will change, but right now, we'd have to employ a seperate accountant to do quarterly EU tax returns.

How much is shipping?

We ship anywhere in Australia for a flat rate of $10, and internationally for $20. We offer worldwide freepost on orders over $200.

There is more about our shipping and returns policy at the bottom of the site.

Shipping, Exchanges and Returns


All orders ship from Sydney via Australia Post domestically and Sendle or Australia Post internationally. Once shipped you will receive a tracking email. We ship via flat rate - Domestic $10 and International $20. We offer free-shipping for domestic orders over $150 and International over $200.

**Covid-19 impact - The virus continues to have significant impact on both domestic interstate and international parcels. 

Domestic Interstate parcels can take 10-14 days

International parcels can take 3-4 weeks

Feel free to reach out if you feel it's been too long and we will launch an enquiry with the appropriate carrier. If you think your parcel is lost, please contact us within 4 weeks domestically and 8 weeks internationally so we can investigate with the carrier.

July 2021 - Update on EU

Sadly, new VAT laws in the EU introduced this month mean it is no longer commercially viable to sell there :-( This makes us very sad, and we continue to monitor any developments that might make doing business with the EU still possible as a smaller company.

We are unable to process international exchanges as post is so slow we may well have sold out of what you want before we receive yours back. Please take extra care to ensure you are buying the correct size. In the US and UK in particular, the 32/34/36/38" system doesn't align with cms! Check our size chart and reach out to Lauren our virtual bra fitter if you need extra help or a zoom fitting on

Please return for a refund to the above address and let us know it's coming to You can also try and sell it on our Facebook Buy Swap and Sell group to minimise carbon footprint and postage costs. Many bras are finding new homes this way. If you want to get a different size, you will need to place a new order on the site.


To minimise carbon footprint and costs, please choose carefully and email for sizing advice or a virtual fitting.

We are happy to take returns domestically and internationally where garments arrive unworn, unwashed and in original condition, so please make sure you try before you wear. We need to receive the items back within 21 days of delivery to refund (we allow extra for international returns). Again, just email to let us know what's wrong and return the items to:
