I’ve been trying to gather all my Made in the USA related blog posts with this tag here for your convenience – as well as my roundup of Made in the USA brands here but also linked at the top of the site!
After a candid conversation about the topic with a friend – I’ve been VERY good about buying my new clothes only if it has been manufactured in the USA. Thrifting/second hand has been about 50/50. But what about your lingerie/undergarments? It is so easy to focus on clothing that you forget about where everything else is made! So I looked into finding some undergarment/underwear brands that create and manufacture in the US.
I found out about Only Hearts while window shopping a few weeks back. The prices aren’t significantly higher than what you might normally find at full price at some of the major stores like Victoria’s Secret. There also seems to be a good mix of functional and sexy pieces for a range of sizes. Shop online through their store or even Shopbop (who carries a large range of their intimates and sleep apparel too!) It seems that also select Anthropologie stores carry the brand too!
I think if you’re looking for very basic pieces, especially cotton underwear, this would probably be your best bet! You did just see their new model modeling their underwear right?
Hanky Panky is the kind of brand I wish I would see more of all over the US just as you would see a Victoria’s Secret in the mall. The pieces are comfy and cute. Many actual and online stores carry the brand. I’m rooting for them!
Flint and Tinder
Flint and Tinder is a new to me brand that I’m very curious about. They make both women and men’s underwear, but also some men’s apparel. It appears as if it was a Kickstarter project that has grown really well!
Between the Sheets
Wow am I a glad I’ve discovered Between the Sheets! They seem to also have an awesome mix of functional and every day pieces but also something special if you’re looking for that! They seem to be stocked at several lingerie stores as well as online.
True Intimates is a brand I found while doing research for this post. They seem pricier than other brands, they are eco-friendly and committed to finding every shade of “nude” for all women. I think this brand is still growing and I’ll be watching to see where they go.
Hope you find this post useful but also as a reminder that shopping made in USA goes beyond our clothes we wear on the outside. If you know of any more underwear/lingerie brands that I may have missed, please let me know!
My next work in progress….made in USA shoes!
