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.

Still love it but miss the gold hardware

I bought my first Very Good bras almost 2 years ago. Those ones are holding up well and I came back for more because I love them so much. Perfect combination of form and function. I wear a 34B and they work for me with any top and for yoga and hiking. The fit and quality have not changed in the newer bras.

My only disappointment is that my older black Very Good Bra has gold-colored hardware, which I liked, whereas the new ones have plain steel hardware. It's a minor difference but it makes me think of like a motorcycle look or just looks more utilitarian whereas the gold is subtly glam. I guess a different bra would have black hardware? But I'm definitely glad it's not coated in something nonbiodegradable for color.

Comfy bra, but for me, not quite enough support

I love that this bra is compostable and that the developer is making a stand on the environmental impacts of fast fashion. Bravo! For this and the friendly and quick service I give 5 stars! However, while the bra is comfy and super ethical, it does not give me enough support. I am at the large end of the size range, perhaps this is why. Just something to consider if you are big busted.

Amazing fit and Comfort

I bought the same size as my standard bras (36C) and really glad to see they're true to fit. They're very comfortable and provide decent nipple cover. I'd even wear them as a sports bra because the support is pretty good too. The only thing is that the band is not as elastic as the ones on standard bras, which could be an issue for women with fluctuating weight.

Best bra in all of time and space and beyond!

So comfortable all day long and into the night. No scratchy bits. No pokey bits. I love these bras to bits!! :)
