Celebrate Earth Day with Natural Fabrics and our Bamboo Sleep Bra
It’s time to cool off in Leading Lady’s Bamboo Crossover Sleep Bra, a.k.a. The Serenity! This spring, as Earth Day approaches check out the awesome benefits of natural bamboo and how wearing our bamboo sleep bra is an environmentally conscious choice for a great night’s sleep.
Earth Day and Natural Fabrics
What do your clothes and bras have to do with Earth Day? A lot actually! While you’re preparing for your Earth Day celebration, keep your wardrobe in mind in these two ways:
First, clothes and bras can be recycled in many ways. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that over 16 million tons of textiles are thrown away. Of course, donating old clothes and bras is a tremendous way to recycle, but you can also use them for rags, art projects, and various home solutions.
Additionally, wearing natural fabrics like cotton, silk, wool, and bamboo are better for your body, produce less toxic waste, and are more sustainable. Your skin absorbs the contents of clothing fibers, so when your clothes are synthetic, your skin absorbs the toxins in the fabric. Plus, the toxins used to create the textiles are released into the environment in the manufacturing process. Perhaps most importantly, natural fibers simply last longer and are therefore a better long-term value for your pocket and the environment. When you’re looking for sleep bras that will last, natural is the way to go.
The Benefits of Bamboo
Bamboo is a wonderfully diverse natural fabric. Perhaps it’s one you’ve never thought to try, but once you have, you’ll want more of it. Here are a few of the qualities that made us choose bamboo for our most innovative sleep bra:
Bamboo is one of the best moisture-wicking, breathable fabrics on the planet. This level of ventilation is due to micro-gaps in the fabric that allow for dry absorption and can keep you up to 2 degrees cooler than in warm conditions. Night sweats are common during hormonal shifts like menopause, pregnancy or breastfeeding, but a bamboo sleep bra keeps you cooler than ever while you sleep.
Bamboo is comparable to silk when it comes to softness, and because it is a natural fiber, it is hypo-allergenic too. These qualities, along with antimicrobial properties, make bamboo a fantastic choice for clothing, especially bras and sleep bras since your breasts are among the most sensitive areas of your body. Additionally, your undergarments tend to carry the most bacteria and fungus, as well as odor. Bamboo combats microbes before they cause irritation, infection or odor.
Bamboo is considered one of the eco-friendliest textiles on Earth because it is a highly renewable resource. It replenishes quickly, is 100% biodegradable, and contributes to a healthy balance of atmospheric oxygen and carbon dioxide. Because it is naturally soft, there’s no need to add chemicals to the fabric to loosen the fibers, reducing toxic waste during manufacturing.
Leading Lady’s Bamboo Crossover Sleep Bra
Now you know natural fibers, especially bamboo,
are a win for you and the environment. What better
way to embrace these benefits this Earth Day than with our Bamboo Crossover Sleep Bra?
The bamboo fabric blend is incredibly soft and supple, and it molds to your body for an ultra-comfortable fit. The pullover design and ballet
back free from closures makes lounging and sleeping cozier than ever. Wide straps offer
gentle support and lift during the night, making
this a wonderful sleep bra for large breasts. This
full coverage wireless bra helps hold your breasts
in place to avoid shifting and drooping while you rest.
The Serenity is also an excellent choice for moms-to-be and new moms because it doubles as a maternity sleep bra and nursing sleep bra. As a maternity sleep bra, the fabric expands with your body, even as your rib cage and breasts grow. Once your baby arrives this nursing sleep bra accommodates size fluctuations for all stages of breastfeeding. The crossover cups easily slide to the side for convenient nursing access. And all the while, normal hot flashes from hormone shifts will be tempered by the cooling bamboo fabric.
Our Bamboo Crossover Sleep Bra is available in sizes Medium to 2X and comes in a 2-pack of grey and black. Whether you’re looking for the most comfortable plus size bra, a simple sleep bra, a sleep bra for large breasts, a maternity sleep bra or a nursing sleep bra, The Serenity has you covered!
Celebrating Earth Day every spring reminds each of us that we are only just borrowing the beautiful Earth we inhabit. And hopefully Earth Day renews passion for caring for our environment and living eco-friendly lifestyles. Wearing natural fabrics is one of many ways you can go green with your wardrobe and we hope you start with our Bamboo Crossover Sleep Bra.
