In a place far, far away from here (specifically, Sri Lanka), magic is happening.
A manufacturing house under the control of major British department store, Marks & Spencer (who celebrates their 127th birthday this year) is raising the… bar on eco-friendly fashion. One might say they’re changing the way we see environmentally safe clothing right under our noses (& our blouses).
[This post will be full of 12-year-old-boy-style jokes, so just get used to it.]
Created with the power of the sun, and offset with more than 6,000 trees planted, Marks & Spencer proudly presents the first carbon neutral lingerie.
Autograph Leaves is a collection of bras and panties that might be the most beautiful example of how eco-friendly doesn’t have to mean “boring.” This solar-powered manufacturing facility in Sri Lanka can boast a 30% drop in emissions by using natural energy… And for what little non-eco-friendly processes they do partake in – M&S are happy to plant trees to offset the difference. That comes out to roughly 6,000 trees planted in Sri Lanka every year. Says The Telegraph:
Sri Lanka’s forests are home to approximately 90 per cent of the country’s endemic species but are disappearing at a rate of 1.6 per cent per year.
Not only is the carbon offsetting program employed by this collection helpful on a basic level, but its also helping to preserve a very, very important ecosystem.
…in your pants.
The line includes four bras, three panties and a garter/suspender belt (which looks amazing, does it not?). Marks & Spencer current delivers to the United States and Canada for a bit more than it costs to ship within the UK. See the entire collection here.
Personally, I’d love to see Marks & Spencer team up with Airdye – an environmentally friendly fabric-dying process… With as much sheer black as I end up wearing, white bras are not always the best form of undergarment. Currently, it seems that the collection is only offered in white, but you can bet we’ll be buying in bulk once colors start showing up!
What do you think of this carbon neutral collection?

Of the women above, whose bangers indeed have the same ones like yours? Undeniably, 57% of women in general would like to have bigger boobs and 47% of which hate their boobs. Big numbers, I might say. What this also means is that a lot of women also have a distorted perception of their actual bust size, usually leading to incorrect bra sizes. Specifically, it’s said that 70% women are still clueless of their bra sizes!Of the women above, whose bangers indeed have the same ones like yours? Undeniably,... more

The department store has seen a remarkable surge in the sales of the Triumph Doreen White, which is selling a third more than it did the same time last year.
Its conical best-seller, the Fantastic Belle, is selling 10 per cent more last week then the previous week.

Somalias hardline Muslim extremists have been ordering women to shake their breasts at gunpoint to see if they are wearing un-Islamic bras.
According to Daily Mail, the women are publicly whipped for wearing undergarments, as it is deceptive and violate Islam.
The insurgent group Al Shabaab has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to identify any women who appear to have a firm bust, said the residents.
The women are then inspected to see if the firmness is natural or the result of wearing a bra, reports Courier Mail.
Al Shabaab, which seeks to impose a strict interpretation of Sharia law over all Somalia, ask women to remove the bra and shake their breasts.
They are also whipping men caught without a beard.
The group has also banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer.Somalias hardline Muslim extremists have been ordering women to shake their breasts at... more

(Oct. 8) - It may be concealed under clothes but the bra is a critical garment that can be expensive to buy, and that people often don't think to donate. Now, a Chicago man is working to change that for women in need.
Oz du Soleil runs a charitable effort aimed at collecting new or gently used bras and donating them to lower-income girls and women, the Chicago Tribune reports

I’m terrified of Nazi Breasts. They permeate television, film, magazines, and billboards. It feels like I’m dodging matrix bullets trying to avoid having Nazi Breasts shoved in my face at every turn. I don’t really hate the people that have Nazi Breasts. I hate the society that made them necessary. I recently lost a large amount of weight, about the weight of a full ballerina or Nicole Simpson pre-pregnancy. I had fantastic breasts when I was fat: huge, perky, full, voluptuous. But with the weight loss, I’ve lost some of the size and perkiness (which I’m told will come back as my body adapts and I tone up more). I’m not National Geographic now, but not where I’d like my body to be – that’s the perfectionist in me. My old bras no longer fit in band-size or cup-size. I must *gasp* go bra shopping.I’m terrified of Nazi Breasts. They permeate television, film, magazines, and... more
