After a lifetime spent squeezing yourself into tight jeans, uncomfortable heels and polyester suits, it’s a breath of fresh air to know that the fashion industry is moving its focus to clothing designed for good – clothes that are comfortable, useful, and that help the planet at the same time.
Despite the rollercoaster of continual lockdowns (thanks COVID) and our planet’s impending doom (thanks global warming), we’ve somehow still increased our focus on clothing that is comfortable and sustainable.
Responsible manufacturing has now become a priority for many brands. Zara, known as the poster child for fast fashion, has instigated a ‘Sustainability Pledge’ to only be using ‘organic, sustainable, or recycled’ cotton, linen and polyester by 2025.
And we’ve seen some amazingly sustainable products being created that take creativity to the next level, including fabric made from seaweed, and ‘leather’ made from apples.
Some brands, such as Australian-owned Modibodi, have gone one step further and created an entire company focused on sustainability – and designing underwear that helps women live more comfortably.
Modibodi has been at the forefront of developing reusable and sustainable apparel to help people around the world manage leaks from periods and breast milk to sweat and incontinence.
Its range of underwear is made from soft bamboo fabric, so the leak-proof lining absorbs any unwanted mess, and you simply chuck them in the wash when you’re done.
Incontinence is an issue that affects many older Australians. According to the Continence Foundation, one in four Australians is incontinent, and 80 per cent of those who do experience incontinence are women (aren’t we lucky!).
And, unfortunately, things tend to get worse with age, as the muscles in your bladder and urethra continue to lose their strength. Products such as Modibodi underwear provide a sustainable, comfortable way to manage the problem.
And Modibodi’s latest creation is designed specifically for people who are less mobile – the Adaptive Boyleg brief has hook and loop tape fastening and elastic hoops that are easy to grasp, making it easy to put on standing, sitting or lying down.
It’s a sensible development that gives back some dignity and control to anyone who struggles with movement. It may even be useful for anyone recovering from surgery.
As the world slowly moves towards a more sustainable, inclusive future, with comfort and ease being a key driver, it’s heartening to see Australian brands, like Modibodi, leading the charge.
