Cotton bras can be a comfortable and stylish alternative to synthetic fabrics and are great for larger-busted women. This article explores the benefits of cotton bras, to help you choose the right products for you.
Ecological and health benefits of cotton lingerie
Environmental issues Organic cotton bras have definite environmental advantages as well as offering health benefits. Organic cotton is free of toxins and chemicals, meaning that the manufacturing process is environmentally-friendly. Health benefits Organic cotton underwear is particularly suitable for people with sensitive skin and allergies. As underwear is worn so close to the body, it is especially important to have a good, hypoallergenic fabric such as cotton which will not irritate the sensitive skin on the breasts. In addition, organic cotton materials may help to reduce the risk of certain cancers including breast cancer, although this is purely anecdotal and not a scientifically proven fact. Where to find great cotton lingerie Cotton lingerie is comfortable and good for sport. Worn under a sports bra, lightweight 100% cotton bras, can help to provide maximum comfort and support for bustier women, whilst exercising.
