Good stuff to share! And before I begin, I gotta tell you that this isn't some kind of advertisement I'm paid to do but it's really something I love so much that I can't stop gushing about it. A friend of mine Sarah recently started her own label of intimate wear named Cosset and it's all made from organic bamboo fabric from sustainable sources.
They're all basic pieces like boy shorts, thongs, bra and tank tops and they come in basic colors: white, black and nude. It's now a major staple in my wardrobe cos it's OH SO COMFORTABLE!!! It's so damn soft and it feels like cashmere jersey that's silky to the touch and the fabric is so comfortable on the skin. I can't stop stroking the fabric cos it feels so very nice. It's breathable, draws moisture away from skin and has thermal regulating property to give you maximum comfort so it's perfect for our shitty humid weather. And as if that's not great enough, the packaging is so pretty and it's made from recycled material.
For the knickers, the cute box can be reused and it's so pretty. The tank tops come in a hanger packaging and you can use it at home so the whole eco conscious approach really scored some major brownie points with me.
It's currently available at Retail Therapy at Wheelock Place and Avana:J at Pacific Plaza. You can also get it online too but I suggest you head down to the shops to touch and feel the fabric for yourself. I went to pick up mine from Retail Therapy yesterday and I can totally live in it! I told Sarah that if I can walk around everywhere in the tank top and boy shorts, I would cos it's really THAT comfortable. And for the superb quality, they're so reasonably priced! The thongs and boy shorts come in a set of three in the nifty gorgeous box and it's only at $55, the tank top is at a mere $28 a pop which is an absolute steal! The bra they called Bralettes are soft non-padded with no under wire and it's going at $50 for a set of 2. Thing is, it's not a structured bra so if you want something very structured, you'll still have to go back to the conventional bra. But this one is perfect for lazy days and I can wear it to sleep in fact, or wear it under sheer top.
I've been hounding Sarah to make basic t shirts like the 3/4 sleeves with v-neck and round neck and if she's gonna do that, I'll be the first to buy them by the dozen cos the fabric is unbelievably lush. I'm gonna buy a few more of the tank tops cos I wanna have spares so I can wear it to sleep too. So yes, I'm going back to Retail Therapy to get more for sure! Do yourself a favor and pamper yourself by getting something this great! Oh, if you wanna read more, check out their website here.
