Our super soft, 100% organic cotton longs made here in Sydney. I was busting for a lightweight, soft pair of longs WITH A STRIPE all through lockdown and I couldn't find any, so now I made my own. The stripe was important to me, I became obsessed. It's not a go-faster stripe, it's a go-slower stripe to suit lockdown life. In 23 we introduced an 'All-Black' version.
- slightly hipster style with wide, straight leg
- soft elasticated waist with tie
- breathable, organic cotton, perfect for summer
- designed with end of life in mind, 100% compostable
Small = 10, Medium = 12, Large = 14
This product contains Vinatur Cradle 2 Cradle gold certified elastic and sewing thread. The elastic can be cut up small at end of life and disposed of in your home compost where it will break down safely in 18-24 months. 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 pants.
These pants are very limited edition, literally using up the last bolts of fabric for some of our bra runs. A never-to-be-repeated, strictly limited edition miracle so don't leave it too late!
Free shipping on domestic orders over $150 and over $200 internationally
These pants are amazing. They are so soft and comfortable and fit very well. I order a small according to the size chart.
Love these pants, I have several pairs. Perfect for autumn & spring as they’re lightweight and very comfortable.
I bought the go-slower pants as I was after some comfortable eco-friendly PJ pants. I am super happy with how comfortable, soft, and lightweight they are and the fit is really good too. I am an Australian size 10 (sometimes a 9) and Stephanie advised me to get the Medium, which fits perfectly and would fit a larger size 10 perfectly as well as they are not restrictive and are quite roomy but still have a nice drape to them. I love these pants and would recommend them for PJ's, exercise, walks, or anything daytime casual, or comfy nights in, and will be bringing them in my 'carry-on' on flights when traveling next time as I think they'd be perfect. They are a little expensive but the quality is there and I love the ethics behind it. It's where we need to go and it feels good wearing them. I was after the 'poppy' and/or 'grey' colour in these pants but the stock had run out so I ordered the palish pink colour, which is lovely anyway and didn't disappoint.
Smart enough to wear to the cafe or the gym, these pants are like wearing nothing ie supremely comfortable. Many people wear them as pyjamas but I'll be wearing mine for exercise. They even passed the style test with my very discriminating daughter!
I bought these as pj pants and they are doing a great job at keeping me warm (but not too warm) and comfy in bed. I’m not the biggest fan of the stripe (sorry!) but the material is a great feel and the ethos won me over. The fit is for a slim build and it would be good if the thigh area was a teensy bit more generous.
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
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 email@example.com 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
Frenchs Forest, NSW 2086
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Please return for a refund to the above address and let us know it's coming to email@example.com. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com 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.
