Hanky Panky: Capsule Wardrobe Update

Are you ready for some Hanky Panky…… underwear that is…. it’s so cheeky. As you know I am putting to together my ethical capsule wardrobe and, that means from head to toe. I realized I should toss my older underwear, and refresh my undergarment wardrobe. I searched for about two hours online which led me to the site Hanky Panky. Normally I would not see

underwear as an investment piece but, in this case I did and, I splurged a bit. The pricing isn’t so different from the ever so famous Victoria’s Secret, with a great bonus of ethical underwear I couldn’t pass them up. I only got four undergarments as that is what I can afford at the moment. Below I will show you a few pictures of the underwear and, the link to purchase them. It is time that we all get a conscious mind that focuses on what is important when it comes to the fashion industry; for me, that is fair trade, ethically made clothing. I support others who work very hard to bring us amazing clothing.

The Ethical Side Of Hanky Panky & Story:

Victoria’s Secret can be kept because there is a reason Hanky Panky’s trade mark is ” The World’s Most Comfortable Thong.” From the moment I clicked submit order to the moment I tried on a pair of Hanky’s silky smooth undies I knew they were something special. Since 1977 Gale Epstein has been creating the world’s phenomenon of underwear. I just want to know why hadn’t I heard about them sooner. Hanky Panky’s undergarments are made & fabric is grown in the U.S. using their signature lace knitting and Supima cotton. The reason their things are so comfy is because the use over 30 yards of thread per thong which means more stitches per inch not only does that equal extreme softness but, it also, equals longer lasting things! Instead of having to go out every month to by new underwear I will just have a set for each capsule wardrobe then, wha-la long lasting and, minimalistic undergarments! I have tested these thongs while working out and, they have not slipped so far and, you know what I mean if you move at all with a thong on. Well, these are technically g-strings but, same thing… either way there hasn’t been any ajusting of the underwear mid-workout which is fantastic! I really love the bikini bottoms better known as Vikini 2 Pack; they are great to wear to bed and silky smooth… They will defiantly be part of each seasons capsule wardrobe. Oh, in case you didn’t realize I am slowly making a capsule wardrobe for undergarments, athletic wear, shoes, and of course my regular wardrobe of 37-40 pieces of clothing. It has been quite an adventure and, my next step is bras.. For anyone who has a larger chest and smaller number like a 36 then, you will know finding a bra is next to impossible and, even when you do they are crazy expensive. If you know of an ethical site that sells larger bust sizes like 36DDD I would love to know where to get one! In the mean-time I will keep searching and, hopefully find one! When I do you all with be the first to know. Stay tuned for my capsule wardrobe updates coming your way!

Have an enlightening and, adventurous day,

allie

Supporting ethical & sustainable is so important to enhance the fashion industry and, to show them that this is the way we want to head towards. Our world needs our help if we are planning on having feature fashion, travel lovers such as ourselves who would enjoy what we call home. I have chatted about the problem with dying fabric and, the decrease in the drinkable water on our planet. Three quarters of the earth’s surface is water, while about .37% is drinkable, that is less then 1%. The fashion industry is contributing in the decline of drinkable water and, by supporting ethical & sustainable fashion companies we are helping the planet. We are also, helping better the workers lives who are treated fairly when it les sublimes 2comes to ethical fashion companies. By wearing clothing that is sustainable, you will be wear it for a number of years which would normally be called “wardrobe staples.” Now, every piece in your wardrobe and, potential capsule wardrobe will be essential and last for years. Buying fast fashion needs to be put to a stop and, replaced by clothing you will wear for five to ten years to come. When you are done with your piece of clothing, gift it to a friend, someone in need, or resell it on places like Poshmark for a couple extra bucks to re-invest in your capsule wardrobe.

By supporting Les sublimes you will be supporting an education project they have going on in Kenya.
