Item is in stockHurry! Low inventoryItem is out of stock Item is unavailable

My favourite slouchy Tee made longer to make sure you're always 'decent' when you head off to boil the kettle. Crafted from super soft, 100% organic cotton right here in Sydney. Perfect for sleep or lounging around on hot summer days. 100% breathable and 100% compostable at end of life, and officially our most-loved, best-selling item of sleepwear!


  • mid-thigh length Tee dress
  • loose fit, with raw edge sleeves and bottom
  • 100% organic cotton knitted and dyed in Australia
  • designed with end in life - 100% compostable
  • Breathable, natural, sustainable sleepwear

Small = 10, Medium = 12, Large = 14

This product is sewn with Cradle 2 Cradle gold certified tencel thread. Our labels are organic cotton and soy ink, and so the whole garment can be safely composted or wormed at end of life. Guilt-free, go-slower sustainable clothing.

This Long Sleep Tee is very limited edition, literally using up the last bolts of fabric for some of our bra runs. A never-to-be-repeated miracle so don't leave it too late! 

Body Fabric - 100% organic cotton grown and spun in India, GOTs dyed and knitted in Australia at ABMT Textiles
Sewing thread - 100% Cellulose made by Crafil in Portugal
Labels - 100% organic cotton with soy ink dyes made by CC Labels in The Netherlands

We recommend you start with the size that you wear and fits you comfortably now. Our sleepwear is loose fit and can accommodate a size either side. So if you're a standard 10, but like things baggy, buy a M/12. If you're a standard 10 who prefers more fitted, buy the S/10. Our size L/14 can normally accommodate a size 16 also.

Free shipping on domestic orders over $150 and over $200 internationally

Love this

This light weight loungewear is a delight ! Fine to wear in bed or on the streets . Soft and gentle. And a wonderful way to use leftover fabric. More colours please !

Super comfortable and my night dress now

I love this dress! I have worn it for the last week and it is great for sleeping in. The material is soft and the tag does not irritate the back of my neck. It is a great length and I've also worn it with leggings and ugg boots.

Please make more!!!

I love how soft and comfortable and wearable this tee dress is. I feel decent enough to take out the rubbish in the tee-dress. I am a bit pear-shaped and I was able to fit the size 10 even though I'm size 12 in pants. It looks nearly good enough to go out in (but I am not that brave)!

Really comfy

I bought the always decent tee dress on a whim because I love what The Very Good Bra are doing. I ordered the large and was a little worried about sizing because I currently wear an 18 but the fit is great! It's so light and comfortable and I feel great knowing that when it reaches the end of its life, I can just pop it in the compost bin.

Best nightie ever

So pleased with this nightie, it's comfy, it's light and has a nice style and doesn't get tangled and I love the fact I can compost it at end of it's life. Decided to get a second one because I know how hard it can be to find something really good again!


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 happy to exchange bras sold within Australia, please email 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

Level 1

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:

Avenue Co - Work - The Very Good Bra

Level 1

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.
