We can’t get enough of inspirational design and beautiful items, particularly in the form of lingerie. Call it a guilty pleasure or an absolute necessity, but lingerie is a wardrobe staple that deserves to be appreciated, fussed over and coveted.

Lingerie gives you permission to be yourself, feel more alive, believe in the possibilities of every day life. Which is why we’re sharing with you 7 of our top ethical lingerie brands, listed in no particular order.
