Ethical Supply Chain

At Everyday Lingerie Co. we're about working with other businesses in our supply chain that work with sustainable and ethical practices and the reason that's so important to me is I know that I'm leaving behind a planet that I've done something that can actually leave my children with something and I want to ensure that I work through that with our supply chain.

It took us almost two years to find a factory that we could work with that we knew took care of their workers. It's not just about the product we make and the end users that it goes to, it's about where it's coming from. We've spent a great deal of time chatting with this factory, understanding what their practices are and how they're continually making improvements in their factory for their workers and everyone who touches the garments before they actually make it to that end user.

We also looked at the options for us with the bamboo. Having bamboo, it's got so many amazing properties. But if we were damaging the environment to actually have that product to you, it wasn't worth it for us. We've also ensured that within our supply chain, we're working with not only ethical factories who give us each different part of it, but they're also sustainable products that we're putting in there.

So, rest assured, we are making sure that we make our impact a positive one on the environment and the people that we work with from the start making of the garment right through to the end user. But as long as the product that we actually produce is something that we're not damaging our planet for the long term. And we're giving you a product that is durable and lasting so you don't have to change them over as often. Less garments we buy, we know that leaves a better footprint.

For most people who know me, know that I'm a pretty open book. But sometimes we all come to something that we don't feel we can talk about. I'm even creating this video, and I don't know whether it'll ever be seen. But I'm creating this video because I know R U OK Day is coming up, and for me it's important to share my story so other people do actually understand that there's struggles that no one will ever see.

Sizing

Trying to find the right underwear size can be difficult due to different companies making different sizes. To make things easier we have created a step by step guide to take the guess work out of the equation.

Below we have measuring instructions with images to assist you, alternatively we have a video taking you through each step.

Finding your size:

All you need to do is take 2 simple measurements; your waist and your hips. The best way to do this is by using a soft measuring tape and a mirror to ensure you are accurate.

Measurement 1: Your waist

Your waist is the natural in indentation above your hips or just below your rib cage (see image to right). Wrap the soft measuring tape around firmly without pitching your skin together – write this measurement down

Measurement 2: Your hips

Now wrap the soft measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips, this is approximately 7 inches below your waist (see image to right). Use the mirror to check that your measuring tape is completely straight and parallel to the floor – write this measurement down.

Example: If your waist is 78 cm and hips 104 cm we would recommend a size 12, however if you want a slight looser fit you may opt for a size 14.

ELC Size 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22
Waist Measurement (cm) 70 75 80 85 93 100 107 114
Hip Measurement (cm) 92 98 104 110 117 124 131 137
USA 4 to 6 6 to 8 8 to 10 10 to 12 12 to 14 14 to 16 16 to 18 18 to 20
UK 6 to 8 8 to 10 10 to 12 12 to 14 14 to 16 16 to 18 18 to 20 20 to 22
EUROPE 34 to 36 36 to 38 38 to 40 40 to 42 42 to 44 44 to 46 46 to 48 48 to 50
