What’s all the fuss about bamboo underwear?

Straight up, it’s bona fide. Bamboo is the magic fabric that lives up to the hype by delivering velvety softness and superior breathability without riding up or irritating your skin.

Its luxurious feel and wide appeal are crafted from bamboo timber that is broken down into a pulp, processed into fibres and spun into yarn known as viscose and lyocell. Bamboo fabric offers a silky smooth coverage and boasts unreal absorbency to keep you feeling snug, dry and comfortable all day long.

Is bamboo underwear better than cotton?

While cotton is a tried and true choice (we make cotton undies too), we believe that bamboo underwear is awesome when it comes to finding oh-so-comfy undies that keep things fresh downtown. Here’s why …

  • Softness: There’s no denying that bamboo is seriously soft. If you like to wrap yourself in lush materials, you’ll love the feel of bamboo viscose against your skin.
  • Absorbency: Bamboo is very absorbent, so it will wick away sweat to keep you dry downstairs. Hello, happy workouts!
  • Breathability: Bamboo fabric is highly breathable, making it the go-to choice for warmer days and sticky summers.
  • Sustainability: Bamboo for our bamboo viscose undies is sourced from Forest Stewardship Council-certified suppliers, and we follow Canopy Plant Bamboo standard.


Does bamboo underwear dry quickly?

It sure does. Bamboo viscose undies dry quickly and are very absorbent, so you can skip the dryer – air dry all the way! With bamboo viscose undies, you can go about your day with the peace of mind that they’ll wick away sweat to keep you fresh and dry downstairs.


How to wash bamboo underwear and make them last

Get the most out of your bamboo undies and keep them fresh with these simple tips.


Wash then wear (just once)

We recommend putting your new pairs through a cold water wash before wearing them for the first time. This helps to activate the technology in the lining.


Protect your purchase

Use a laundry bag to wash your bamboo underwear. Natural fibres wash well but don’t like zippers!


Try a little tenderness 

Choose a gentle, cold-water cycle using a mild, eco-friendly detergent that’s free from harsh chemicals. It’s good for the fabric and better for your vagina too.


Avoid the dryer

Ditch the dryer and hang your bamboo undies in the sunshine. Consistent exposure to high heat can break down the fibres and shorten the life span of your favourite briefs.


Avoid fabric softeners

What’s good for your towels isn’t great for your undies. Softeners can leave a residue on the fabric that reduces its moisture-wicking goodness.

Always check the care label for specific washing instructions.
