5 Ethical Underwear Brands (non-underwired Bras)

Bras are hard to find at the best of times. They have to be supportive, stylish and high-quality. So the search for a good bra becomes even trickier when you add “ethics” to your already long list of criteria.

But don’t let your underwear fall under the ethical-radar. It may be basic, but a non-wired bra is a hard working item in every woman’s wardrobe – so it’s important to get it right.  In today’s post, I share some of the best ethical underwear brands that offer a variety of non-wired bras – so there’s something to suit every size and style!


Made from GOTS certified organic cotton, AmaElla produces timeless lingerie classics that are kinder to your skin, people and the planet. 

They have a great selection of non-wired triangle shape bras (a style I particularly love!) in classic colours and some cute floral prints. Discover my full thoughts on the Blush Pink Triangle Bra set by AmaElla which I recently tried, tested…and loved.


  • All materials are free from toxic chemicals
  • For their printed garments, they only use GOTS certified printing
  • Flattering triangle shape 
  • Packaging is made from 100% recycled materials
