Thongs and Bras we love from womxn owned brands.

Womxn owned lingerie brands for everybody.

Since the invention of the corset in the 1700s lingerie brands have created undergarments that were solely dedicated to the male gaze. While centred around fantasy, desire and the objectification of femme bodies, the creation of these lingerie garments often came at the expense of a woman’s agency and sense of comfort. 

However, as times have changed and lingerie brands continue to evolve, we’ve come to see how many underwear brands are prioritising comfort and in turn allowing womxn to feel empowered regardless of what their preferences or needs may be. 

So whether you're looking to buy some sexy lingerie for a date night, are looking for some functional support or perhaps you’re just looking to feel confident and sexy, just know that the world of lingerie is vast and for every body. 

Below are our favourite womxn owned lingerie brands that are changing the world one bra and thong at a time:
