I’ve reviewed a lot of different things over the years…jeans, tank tops, a candle…but never undergarments (actually I just realized I haven’t even reviewed shorts yet). But I’m all for covering anything that’s cool in some unique way, especially if it is environmentally conscious. That last link for the candle was from a company (Hemp Blue) that also creates hemp jeans (surprise surprise), and I’ve written about a lot of companies that use hemp in their manufacturing. I was recently contacted by another one, WAMA Underwear.

WAMA Underwear considers themselves to be pioneers in the hemp world by creating the best hemp underwear available. After studying the unmistakable benefits of using hemp, the brand painstakingly created their own fabric from scratch to make sure they could produce the best there was to offer, especially for those who were new to, and still learning about hemp as a great alternative to other fabrics. Hemp is naturally anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, soft and breathable to keep you feeling comfortable (and may I say, odorless). WAMA also employs GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic sources to ensure the best quality for their fabrics, and believe in transparency when it comes to the conditions of the factories they partner with for fair wages and safe environments. Their factories are in China, since that is currently the worldwide leader in hemp textiles, but they are consistently monitored and communicated with by an on-site WAMA rep. WAMA Underwear is also certified Vegan by PETA, and is a Green America Certified Business for positive environmental and social change.

This awesome company sent me two of their Women’s Hipsters, and I’ve gotta say they definitely live up to the promises. One of my first concerns with these boyshort type fits is that I have a curvier behind from lifting weights (and genetically), so a lot of times things cut this way ride up my butt and get fairly uncomfortable. This was absolutely not a problem with these! They are such a great fit, true to size, offer awesome coverage and yes, they are super soft, made from 53% hemp, 44% organic cotton and 3% spandex and featuring a soft flexible waistband. They’re obviously great as underwear, but I also just enjoyed wearing them around the house and they will definitely be a companion on my second-ever trip to Burning Man this year. It’s been fairly cold in California finally so it will also be great to see how breathable they are in the warmer desert heat! I would definitely recommend these to anyone! Even though they are a bit pricier than normal underwear, it’s definitely worth the comfort and environmental impact. It’s time to start making a change, little by little, and as best you can!

“As we were studying hemp textiles we learned that hemp fabric has many benefits like being naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and super soft and breathable. We quickly realized that the best application for hemp fabric would be hemp underwear and that’s how WAMA was born.”

“We started from scratch creating our unique hemp fabric. We had a rigorous and super long design process because we wouldn’t accept anything less than perfect. For most this would be their first experience with hemp underwear so we obsessed on every detail from the stitches, pattern pieces, colors and overall design. We want everyone’s first experience with hemp underwear to be nothing short of amazing!”
