The Very Good Bra Black

Size8/30C

Everything in this plastic-free black 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. This is also durable sustainable lingerie, a soft cup bra which will wash and wear for a long time. A sustainable bra to be proud to wear, as well as a comfy bra!

Everyone needs black bras and this longline black 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 soft 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.


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



Click in the link above for our size chart.

We essentially only have two styles right now, our Original Black and Vintage Peach are the same style, as are all our V for Victory and Liberty print bras (apart from nursing which has the detail on it's product page).

For those of you with larger cup sizes, I'd recommend our bras with V wires in the front - V for Victory and Liberty prints. The small front V wire offers great separation and stops anything jiggling out! We are also now starting to make these bras with two different widths of elastic so larger cup sizes can enjoy a broader 20mm strap. Our Black and Indigo V for Victory bras have these new straps.

If you find yourself on the cusp of band sizes, I'd advise you to go up a size. Without spandex and with the longer line band, our bras can feel firmer than you are used to and have less stretch. Best to size up for comfort!

If you are on the cusp of cup sizes, please know that our V for Victory and Liberty print bras have no under-cup channeling and can therefore easily accommodate more breast tissue so you might get into the smaller of two cup sizes, but if you're going for Original Black or Vintage Peach, maybe go up to the next cup.

Of course we are always happy to offer personal tailored advice, and also to exchange if we don't get it right first time.

Great fit

This might actually be the first bra I've purchased that fits me perfectly. I've spent a long time looking for a bra that isn't made of plastic, so I'm really pleased that not only does this bra exist, it's also comfortable and flattering!

Accurate sizing guide!

Not only is this bra great on your skin, the sizing guide was really accurate for me. Bra is exactly as described. I’m very happy with my purchase. Look forward to a new range of colours like white or nude. Thanks for fast shipping

Loved the new bra. The fabric was soft, the style was very comfortable. Size was correct. Will definitely buy another when the time comes.

So Comfy! Definitely my new favourite Bra!

I have been washing the bra every night after work just so I can wear it again the next day - so soft, no annoying wires that dig in and doesn't give me a weird shaped boob! Will absolutely be buying myself a few more.

FAQ

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

SHIPPING

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.

INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGES

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 hello@theverygoodbra.com

Please return for a refund to the above address and let us know it's coming to hello@theverygoodbra.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.

RETURNS

To minimise carbon footprint and costs, please choose carefully and email hello@theverygoodbra.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 hello@theverygoodbra.com to let us know what's wrong and return the items to:
