Everything in this plastic-free bra, from the tree rubber and organic cotton elastic to the tencel sewing thread is designed to break down in nature at end-of-life and leave no trace. Check here to read more about the disposal of our custom-made organic cotton Hooks and Eyes. Read our blog to see how worms ate the bra in 8 weeks, but this is also premium, durable eco lingerie which will wash and wear for a long time.

This wire-free bra is super soft on the body. It has a soft, woven organic cotton liner in the band that sits next to the body and anchors the bra in place, preventing it stretching over time. Because there is no spandex in the bra, it can run a little smaller in size than other bras as it has less stretch. Straps are tree rubber elastic so not for those allergic to latex. Straps in all sizes are 13mm width.

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

Good but not great for larger cups

I am a 34-36DDD or E or in AUS 12E. This bra is cut too low and my breasts end up almost falling out, especially if I need to bend over. The material and the band is great and the band. I typically have issues with bands being too big - this on wasn't. I was even able to only use the 2nd to last hook for a good fit. I will make a few adjustments to the front to make it wearable. But, if you are large chested, go for the V for Victory bra - from a quick try on - this is more suited for large breasted women.

Hi Mary, sorry to hear your issues and I have written to you privately. The sizes you quote above are very different to what you purchased? I agree the V bras are better for larger cups. Check my email for next suggestions including selling any that don't work on our Facebook Buy Swap and Sell site to find a local buyer.

Perfect size, take 2

I shared my bust measurements and it was agreed I should order a 10A, though I'm normally a 10B. Turns out, I needed a 12A. A little bit frustrating, but now that I have the 12A, I really appreciate how well the bra is made, and all the thinking that has gone into each element: the straps, the stitching, etc. Within ethical brands I've probably been slow to come to VGB because of the price, but I've probably spent money on bras that aren't going to be the same value for money. I'm really looking forward to life with my Very Good Bra!

The VGB black

I love what this company stands for and decided to take the plunge and give their bra a go. I understand the higher price tag. The bra is soft and very comfy and the size and fit pretty good, although the upper section of the cup is a little baggy on me. I’m now waiting for the peach to become available in my size!

Great fit and comfortable.

Great fit and comfortable. A cup upper section could be a little smaller for me so that finish is smoother (material on this section is a little baggy on me).

Perfect fit

I was nervous about the fit of these bras having a large bust and small back - it's so hard to find anything that works. But Stephanie's size recommendation was spot on!
I'm really happy with the look. It's definitely more 'natural' than the usual padding but works for most outfits if not all. So much more comfy than any bra I've worn before too! I will be back for more.
I suspect it might not last as long as some of my more robust polyester bras, but I am committed to moving away from plastic in all areas of life. I'm hoping that as more of us support great businesses like this, the economy of scale will mean prices can go down and plastic free will become the norm :)
