Liberty Pansy bra
Welcome to our second collaboration with iconic UK Liberty Fabric, the Pansy Bra! The word Pansy derives from the latin verb Pensare - to take everything into consideration, to think! We love this, the thinking woman's bra - Pansy :-)
The body of the floral bra is organic cotton with a print in REACH dyes. This design is almost identical to our original Liberty bra (read reviews here), except we have removed the banding on the frame and cups to make it sit flatter and more streamlined. It's one of the most flattering bras you could wear. As ever, it has no underwires and is super soft on the body. The front V wire gives great separation and support across all sizes, and works particularly well with larger cups. The pansy bra has a woven organic cotton liner in the band that sits next to the body and anchors it in place, preventing it stretching over time. Because there is no spandex in the bra, it can run a little smaller in size than your regular bra as it has less stretch.
Everything in this floral print bra, from the elastic, tencel sewing thread and custom-made hook and eye pieces is botanically circular, designed to break down in nature at end-of-life and leave no trace. A true plastic-free flower bra. If you're after comfortable and pretty cotton bras for women, don't look any further.

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

Liberty Pansy bra
It took me a long time to find a plastic free bra. I ended up stumbling on this site through a blog and was excited to place my first order. Stephanie helped me pick out the right sizes which fit nicely! I love the super soft organic fabric and the fact that I can compost my bras at the end of their life! The pansy design is beautiful. I got the matching set :) You can still feel pretty while wearing natural fibers! Yay! Very happy with my purchase.
Loved this bra. Fits well, very comfortable have been advertising to fellow females already.
I bought this bra with huge trepidation, but was determined to bite the bullet and do it because of the environmental impact. So far so good!! I have washed it twice. I followed the sizing guide to get my size and it fits perfectly! I am a 12C and have always worn underwire and padded bras, so was fearful I would not have the support or look as buxom as i'd like to!! The support is great and the bra is so comfortable. The V for victory style really suits me. As opposed to the other style I bought. Of course I love the print and would love another print design, when there is more stock.
This bra is so comfortable. No annoying elastic on the skin around the chest - it is enclosed in the fabric. I didn’t realise how annoying that was until I had to use one of my old bras bought from a department store.
It fits slight firmer than the other bras but only marginally so.
I love this, my second bra from this website. I have always been a fan of Liberty fabric and how nice to know it is also compostible. For my first purchase I used the size chart but I found it a bit tight around my chest. I went up a size (but down a cup-size as recommended on the website, so from 34C to 36B) this time and it is more comfortable. So if you are close to the top end of the sizing chart and you don't like things to be tight, I recommend going up a size - I'm still using the outer bra-clips on the larger size which gives me the potential to make it tighter if the fabric does stretch a bit.
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.

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

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 happy to exchange bras sold within Australia, please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need some help on the next size, otherwise just send a quick email to say it's coming and what you want, and return to:
Avenue Co - Work - The Very Good Bra
28 Rodborough Road

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 email@example.com
Please return for a refund to the above address and let us know it's coming to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what's wrong and return the items to:
Avenue Co - Work - The Very Good Bra
28 Rodborough Road
Frenchs Forest, NSW 2086
All returns and exchanges are at the customer's own cost so please select carefully and reach out for sizing help before buying.
**We sell tax-free to international customers, but we cannot refund international sales that have been rejected on the basis of your local customs charges, so please research carefully before buying.
