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.

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…

Organic Cotton As Ethical Cotton

Organic Cotton is often discussed as an eco-friendly fiber because it has a minimal impact when it comes to polluting earth's resources. Organic cotton is produced without the use of toxic pesticides, insecticides, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). For many, organic cotton could also be considered ethical cotton - due to the way it impacts the life of the farmer. In many ways, organic cotton is a better method for farmers to use than conventional methods.

One of the most obvious ways by which organic cotton positively impacts the life of a farmer is the absence of harmful insecticides and pesticides in organic cotton farming. This protects both the farmers' lives and the surrounding environment. (Cottoned On) In developing countries, there are up to 20,000 deaths each year caused by pesticide poisoning. Pesticide residue can be found in nearby lakes, rivers, and waterways, as well as foods, farm animals and breast milk. Each year, over 10,000 US farmers die from canc…

Plastic Clothes, Plastic Oceans

by Marie Heffernan
With the theme of Earth Day 2018 being “End Plastic Pollution”, I wanted to shed a light on plastics in unexpected places. I bet you can probably think of many ways plastic shows up in your life (even in efforts to avoid using plastic), whether it be the straw in your drink that you didn’t anticipate, the lid of your morning coffee, or the packaging for a quick bite to eat. But what you may not have considered is the plastic that is woven or knit into your clothing. Plastic shows up where you least expect it, from cozy fleece outerwear to high performance active wear. Any synthetic fiber, such as polyester, nylon, acrylic, and spandex, is derived from plastic, which originated from oil.
Most people are aware of the current issue of plastic bottles and containers ending up in our oceans, either from litter or poor waste management. We have seen the images of sea creatures being engulfed in plastic bags or choked by six pack rings. However, it is what we do not see…
