We’re always on the lookout for eco-friendly fabrics that aren’t only good for the environment but also feel great on your skin. That’s why we were so pleased to find Wama Underwear, a US-based intimates company specializing in premium hemp underwear.
So why hemp? Well, simply because it’s one of the most sustainable fabrics out there! Hemp fabric is super soft, breathable, and is naturally antibacterial without any need for additional treatments or fibres. It requires way less water to grow and doesn’t need any harmful pesticides or herbicides.
Unlike other natural fibres, hemp is super strong so it doesn’t break down from continuous washing and wearing, it just gets softer. It’s the perfect match for sustainable underwear!
About Wama Underwear
Wama Underwear was born from an exploration of all of the impressive qualities of hemp fabric. Once realizing how soft, strong, and antibacterial hemp is, the founders of Wama knew it was destined for underwear. Having now worn our Wama underwear for a few weeks, we can definitely see the appeal!
And it’s not just about the fabric! We love that Wama is committed to working exclusively with ethical manufacturers who support their workers and the environment. They practice fair labour practices and eco-friendly initiatives. They are also a fully vegan company and also ship all of their orders in recyclable and reusable packaging.
Plus, Wama is so confident that you’ll love your first pair of hemp undies that they offer a first pair guarantee. If you’re not happy with your item for whatever reason, they’ll send you a new colour or size or issue a refund. No questions asked! Easy!
Wama Underwear Line
Wama offers a full line of undergarments for men and women. You can get multi-packs so you’ll have an eco-friendly pair of underwear for every day of the week! Every item is dyed with low impact dyes and made from hemp, the world’s most sustainable fabric.
Wama Underwear’s line of premium hemp undies for women come in 5 different cuts to suit every body type. They have hipsters, bikinis, thongs, boy shorts, and high-waisted briefs. Every style is available in XS-3XL and comes in 2 great colours: black and Wama green. You can also pick up a pair of hipsters in beige.
I opted for a pair of women’s hipsters, which are super comfortable to bum around in and a pair of thongs, which I found to be way more comfortable than any other thongs I own.
Wama offers two different styles of super soft and comfortable bras. They’ve ditched the underwires and traded them in for a supportive double-layer material of their signature hemp blend fabric. The bras come in a triangle or racerback bralette and run from XS-3XL. Currently, they are only offered in black, which is a staple for any intimates drawer.
My black triangle bra has definitely become my personal favourite. It fits perfectly, doesn’t stretch and offers just the right level of support.
The Wama Underwear men’s line consists of boxer briefs, trunks, boxers, and classic briefs. They’re all made with soft, flexible waistbands and never bunch up. They come in a full size range of S-4XL and look great in black or Wama green. The boxer briefs are also available in the lighter hemp colour to work with every pair of pants in your wardrobe.
Max ended up with a few pairs of boxer briefs and now claims they are his favourite. After all, thanks to the natural antibacterial nature of the hemp fabric, they don’t smell and that’s a win for all!
