Who doesn't love to shop and help the environment at the same time? At Girlfriend you can do both. That's because they turn old plastic bottles, fishing nets and other waste into bras, leggings and shorts.
When you buy their products you're helping to divert waste from landfills and support an ethical work environment for the people who make your clothes.
That sounds like the definition of a win-win. Here is a handful of their best selling products.
One and done. The Bike Unitard is a super easy one piece designed with our soft-yet-sturdy signature compressive fabric that's made from recycled plastic water bottles. We made it with a deep scoop back and nixed the waist and center front seams so it molds to your every move. Oh, and it has a built-in bra. What can we say, we're here to support.
What’s a real bra anyway? The Cami Bralette is made with soft, stretchy fabric that’s light and breathable so you barely feel like it’s there. It gives you full coverage and light support for those days when it’s probably best to put on a bra.
We like to say the Cleo Halter Bra is a little bit sporty, a little bit feminine. It has thin straps, a nice open neckline and a longer body to provide a bit more coverage. And since it’s designed with our soft, lightweight, breathable FLOAT fabric, it still keeps things nice and cool even during sweatier activities. We’re looking at you, hot yoga.
The legging that started it all. An extra high-rise with four-way stretch and compressive fabric made from recycled water bottles — basically everything you need to get through your favorite high-impact activities, like running, yoga, and binge watching true crime.
It’s a bra, it’s a top, it’s a super cute way to keep trash out of landfills. The Devon Compressive Cami gives you the coverage of a longline bra, low to medium-impact support by way of its built-in bra, and the easy versatility of a cami. Pretty much the perfect everyday top, don’t you think?
