Introduction: America's Current Situation with Organic Cotton

The United States is the second largest consumer of cotton in the world. The United States produces more than 10 billion pounds of cotton per year which makes up more than one-third of the world's production. In recent years, there has been an increase in the demand for organic cotton due to its sustainable practices. In order to meet this demand, U.S growers have increased their production by more than 40%. The U.S textile industry has been hit hard by imports from other countries like China and India which have lower labor costs for their workers and lack of regulations on pesticide use, and using toxic chemicals. To combat this problem, U.S textile manufacturers have joined corporations like the Organic Trade Association to cooperate on standards for organic cotton production and marketing. This last spring, I went to a trade show by the OTA, where they showcase new trends with organics. It is so fun to learn more about sustainable materials!

Why You Should Purchase Your Organic Bra Made in the USA

It is important to purchase your organic bra made in the USA because it will ensure that your money is going to a company that is following the guidelines of fair trade and ethical production.
Furthermore, purchasing an organic bra made in the USA will ensure that you are getting a quality product. The materials used for these lingerie pieces are made with care and consideration for those who make them...they actually pay a living wage to the workers.  While it wasn't easy to find bras made in the US with organic cotton, I was actually surprised at the options!  Read on to find out more.


Rawganique has a lot of bra options that are made in the USA and in Europe. They are made from organic pima cotton and range from 47.00 for a light support triangle bralette bra to 90.00 for a long line sports bra. None of these comfy organic bras have an underwire option, but they do have some with soft cups. Sadly they lack a big size range, but they do go up to XL which on their website says goes up to a 44 inch chest. Rawganique also has a wide range of items made of sustainable fabrics. Everything from ethical lingerie to shoes and home items!

Only Hearts

Made in New York City, Only Hearts is committed to making a positive impact using local, deadstock, organic, recycled, and certified made in green textiles. If you are looking for a stunning bra made from quality fabrics...look no further. Only Hearts is worn by lots of celebrities like Cardi B, Kendall Jenner, Scarlett Johansson, and Hailey Bieber. The prices range from 21 dollars for a bralette, to 127.00 for a truly stunning two-piece bridal set. They do offer underwire bras, and here is a link for a really pretty organic cotton bra that is GOTS certified. With a wide range of very pretty loungewear and sleepwear in the highest quality, there are lots of options for everyone! I do not see a lot of size inclusivity...they only go to an XL. Click here for more information and shopping.


Araks is a sustainably made brand also from New York City! Araks is striving towards zero waste and a low environmental impact, so that the surplus fabric pieces can be used in the next season. Not all of their products are purely organic cotton. They also use upcycled and recycled materials in some of their lingerie.  The prices range from 72.00 for a bralette to 100.00 for an underwire organic bra. Provided that you follow the care instructions, these should last you for a very long time. Click here for more information and shopping.  The largest cup size that they offer for an underwire bra is DD, and it is disappointing to notice that they do not carry a wide range of sizes like conventional cotton brands. Here is a link to all of their organic cotton bra options!

Decent Exposures

This made-in-the-USA company is very size inclusive, but they aren't very pretty. They have one style, called the un bra, yes that is actually the name. Each bra is made to order, and sizing really depends on the fabric that you choose. It is actually a very cool option for those of us that are harder to fit, or have allergic reactions to clothing. Decent Exposures can also add a nursing flap, or make a maternity option. They even make tanks that are made for your size!  Click here.

Thunderpants USA

Bralettes for everyone! Thunderpants only makes bralettes and matching organic underwear, but the fabrics are SO cute. They only have the original bra, but they also go up to size 2X large. Here is a link to all of their products and sizing. Each of their designs is limited edition, and made by textile artists. I love that they have larger cup sizes! The manufacturing facility is 7 miles from the corporate office, so they take pride in knowing that the bras are made in quality work environments and paying fair wages.


Etsy is always my friend to find local artisans made items. You will have to sort through a bit if you are strictly interested in shops made in the Unites States, but it is possible! One of the best parts is that it would be easier to customize with a small shop for the right fit rather than in a larger manufacturing facility. Here is a link to one made in North Carolina, and here is a link to the larger search...  

Majamas Earth

Majamas Earth are made in the US, and have a lower average price than most of the others that I found. They are all wire free and are a cross front bralette or a bralette with front gathers. They do offer the first strapless option that I have seen, and these lightweight bras go up to XX Large sizing.


 Blue Canoe

Blue Canoe is one of the more popular, and maybe the best sustainable bras on the market. At least in terms of popularity. They start out at about 50.00 for a bralette and go to 90.00 for a long line sports bra that can be worn as a shirt to whatever workout you choose. They offer a plus sized cup, which is a nice option for those of us with larger bra sizes.  Blue Canoe doesn't have a wide range of colors, but they do make coordinating underwear.


Believe it or not, there are a number of organic manufacturers of lingerie brands that sell on Amazon. Here is one by a company called In Touch that is made in the United States. There are a variety of others that I mentioned in the previous sections all available on Amazon. This may be a good choice because of Amazon's try before you buy policy.


 Honorable Mention

Julie May 

There are a couple of brands that I feel like I should mention, that I found during my research. The first one is Julie May and they are out of the UK. I wasn't able to confirm that they are made in the UK only, but they do follow the same ethical standards, and they ship to the United States.


Knickey is a brand that I personally own and use. They do not manufacture in the US, but at one facility in India. They have the same ethical standards and are committing to paying a living wage where they make their garments. Knickey also has a maternity collection.  Please let me know if that picture link isn't working.  The web is messing with me today...
