What could be more essential than underwear? After all, it's the first piece of clothing we put on before everything else. As comfort is a matter of personal taste, here are 5 different types of underwear for women, each of them made in Quebec. There’s something for every preference…and for every butt! In this post, I walk you through the different options and offer you some of my recommendations.
These panties were designed and made in Quebec from our incredibly soft bamboo rayon fabric. I’m proud to say that all these styles are extremely comfortable, stylish, eco-conscious AND locally made!
1. Bohemian Bikini
One of the first models I created. It's a classic cut, though a little cheeky as it covers only half the bum! It’s a nice cut if you’re looking for medium coverage.
But if you're the type to be bothered by underwear that rides up, I'd recommend the next model. This is not to say that the bohemian bikini would be uncomfortable for you; it just depends on our body shape and personal preference!
The hipster garçonne is low-rise underwear that covers the bum more than the bikini does! It is low-waisted, but not too low, a garçonne cut without being a boxer (for a real women's boxer, keep reading 👇). It’s a super popular model that appeals to many women, no matter their body type.
Like the cut of our hipster boyshort but prefer underwear with a higher waist? The high-waisted boybrief may quickly become your favourite underwear! The fit is the same as the previous model, but this one covers up to the waist. The elastic is soft and delicate, so it doesn't feel uncomfortably tight. We love to wear it under skirts and high-waisted pants, and under dresses too!
I’ve met tons of women who borrow their boyfriend's boxers because they just couldn't find a pair of women's boxers on the market that didn't ride up. Search no further! The globetrotter boxer offers optimal coverage, without annoyingly riding up! This is my personal favourite for sleeping. I also wear the globetrotter boxer under summer dresses.
P.S. If you’re really keen on borrowing your boyfriend’s boxers and he could use a few new pairs, we have a section for him too!
If you're looking for minimal coverage, the gipsy thong cut is for you. It’s perfect to avoid panty lines under leggings. This model is made a little smaller than the other models, so opt for a larger size if you tend to fall between two sizes.
All these models are available in several colours. Order a few to benefit from a bulk discount. It's the perfect opportunity to refresh your underpants wardrobe! Shop the full collection here.

Définitivement, mon année 2021 fut une année bien remplie de défis et de nouveautés. Prendre le temps de faire un bilan sur son année est toujours un exercice intéressant qui permet de voir tout ce qui s’est passé, ce qui a été appris, et d’être reconnaissant. Je vous fais le décompte de mes 5 moments marquants de 2021.
La mode génère beaucoup de déchets. Couper le tissu pour les vêtements génère inévitablement beaucoup de retailles, et ce, même lorsqu’on minimise les pertes et qu’on optimise la production. Notre projet papier-retailles avait donc trois objectifs.
