Lola & August & Organic Cotton

The word “organic” is thrown around a lot. From fruit and vegetables to animal crackers, the list is seemingly endless. But did you know that organic goes beyond what you put in your body, and includes what you put on it?

Lola & August & Organic Cotton
Organic Cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. It reduces the use of pesticides and fertilizers because it’s grown without them, just like organic food, and the seeds are natural, untreated GMO seeds planted in healthy soil. There are so many benefits to using organic cotton, we could go on for ages. From the way it’s harvested (“natural defoliation”) to how it’s whitened (with safe peroxide instead of chlorine bleaching), the benefits are endless.

And that’s why we use it.

Using organic cotton in our lingerie makes it better for you. If you have chemical sensitivities, or sensitivities to dyes (and, well, our lingerie certainly covers some sensitive areas) it’s better for your skin. Plus, quality, 100% cotton breathes better, keeping you clean and dry.
The Organic Highwaist Panty in Pink
We know what will make our customers feel comfortable, but beyond that we’re an eco-conscious company. We want to make the world a more beautiful place. So, whether that’s by covering you in satin and lace, or ensuring our pieces are made with quality materials that are better for our planet—we’re happy.

If you’d like to try one of our organic cotton panties, we can pretty much guarantee it will change the way it feels to feel sexy.

Conscious Consumption: Making a Difference Through Fashion on a Budget

by Marie Heffernan
With all the current attention on the effects that the fashion industry has on the earth and its inhabitants, many of us are looking for better ways to shop. The question many of us are asking, however, is, how can we support eco-friendly and ethical fashion on a budget?


It’s true, sustainability comes at a certain price point. Designing things responsibly costs more, for many different reasons. At the mill or textile level, added costs come in the form of using organic fibers, or paying to have water treatment systems in place to ensure no chemicals are leaked into rivers or ground water. At the factory level costs come into play through output and waste management systems. Another cost is fair labor – no matter what new technology or machinery a designer uses, in the end a pair of human hands is always needed to assemble the garment. That human being deserves to be paid a living wage for their work.
Another cost that comes into play is the cost of creating s…

Flaunt What You’ve Got: A Girl’s Guide to Boudoir Photography

"Feeling sexy  is an empowering thing. It raises self-confidence, makes people feel desirable  and can really heat things up  in the bedroom."

Feeling sexy is an empowering thing. It raises self-confidence, makes people feel desirable and can really heat things up in the bedroom. Boudoir photography is a playful way to show off (most of) your goods, get sexy with some cute poses and wow your partner with a gift they’re sure to love.
Boudoir is French for a woman’s bedroom or private sitting room, where most photography sessions still take place. The intimate setting helps create romantic images that can be cheeky, sensual, or downright naughty. Boudoir photography is one of today’s hottest bridal trends, although it’s been around for a long time.


From late 19th-century erotic French postcards to boudoir art in the 1920s and curvy pinup-girls of the ‘40s and ‘50s, female sexuality has been the subject of photography since… well, since photography was invented. But now, boudoir has be…

Gratitude and Empowerment

by Marie Heffernan
As the leaves fall and the autumn air turns cool and crisp, my excitement gathers for my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving! As we feel the spirit of Thanksgiving during the fall months, I wanted to talk about gratitude and how it can be used as a tool of empowerment. 
Sometimes, creating a truly eco-friendly and ethical world can seem so far out of reach. We are witnessing rising temperatures with an extended Indian summer, and often see so many human rights violations by just turning on the news. 

Let us not feel despair about these current events though – remember this is a post about gratitude! One thing we can definitely feel thankful for is that we are so aware of the current issues that the planet and humanity is facing. Another thing to be grateful for, more and more of us are beginning to care deeply about these issues and want to create a positive impact. The “tribes” that are created through our shared passions and values are definitely something to be grat…
