Why is bamboo good for me?

Why is bamboo good for me?

One of the main questions we got as well was about why we chose bamboo. And if you haven't actually owned bamboo underwear or been into a shop where you can actually feel the fabric, it's really amazing. It's super soft. It's really breathable. It's moisture-wicking. It's odour neutralizing. So it's great actually for people who are running about their day. That's why a lot of companies are starting to flick over in new tee shirts, singlets, as well as your underwear, and even some of your athleisure. It actually allows you to go about doing what you want to do during the day and takes away the sweat and all the nasties from it.

As women, we know that things can happen if you're wearing synthetics regularly and in a day and age where athleisure's a massive part of what we wear as women, you're constantly wearing something that's not breathable. You want to actually ensure that what you've got underneath, and it's one of the main reasons we actually chose bamboo. I learnt about it when I was in the bedding industry. It was just starting to come in. A lot of people talking about the heat that they had in their mattresses and we were putting bamboo fibres or layers of it to actually disperse some of that natural body heat and take some of that away from you. So that's why we chose bamboo in all of our range.

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
