Underwear is of those items where I do not skimp on quality. Boody’s Organic Bamboo underwear caught my eye with its sustainably sourced organic bamboo fabric that has been turned into comfortable, durable looking every day underwear with no fuss or frills. I have been testing a cami and briefs set that have stood up well in wear and against wash. Comfortable, soft, made with care and attention to detail, it’s a great choice.
Price: £5-10 each
About Boody Bamboo Eco Wear
Boody is an Australian based clothing company specializing in a bamboo everyday wear range of underwear, leggings, t-shirts and socks. They are a global company selling across the globe in multiple countries. There isn’t much on the company’s website about their history, but read about their ethos and eco focus on their “Our Story” page.
The Boody underwear range is designed for a slim figure with short cami’s and a UK size range of 8-12 (according to the company’s size guide). I’m a size 14 and wished for a little bit more length as the cami pulled up, but otherwise it is a very comfortable fit. The M/L briefs fit perfectly, but definitely on the upper edge and would not fit if I gained a little bit of weight around my waist. The fabric and seam-free cuts are worth all the hype. It is durable, supersoft and luxuriously comfortable. Bamboo is also hypoallergenic and hydroscopic.

The Boody range is good value for money. I paid £10 for a set that will last, feels very comfortable to wear and have all the added benefits organic bamboo fabric brings. It is easy to wash, quick to dry and folds without creasing when packed away, making it a convenient choice for everyday wear.

Boody’s Organic Bamboo underwear gets a thumbs up from me. Their Bamboo is organically grown on a plantation in China, their prices are reasonable and it’s always great to see a brand focused on everyday comfortable underwear over special occasion luxury lingerie. Their clothing only comes in two sizes – Small/Medium (UK size 8-10) and Medium/Large (UK size 10-12), which excludes everyone wearing a size 14 and up, but if you fall within their size range, their organic bamboo underwear is well-made to last with a comfortable fit. Recommended.
