We Reviewed: Subset’s Organic Cotton High-Rise Brief

Welcome to our review series, where we feature conscious brands that inspire us by building better products. We reviewed Subset’s Organic Cotton High-Rise Brief.

How It Meets Our Value Standards: Organic Cotton

Why We Love Subset: They elevate top-drawer basics using GOTS-certified organic cotton. 

About the Subset: elevates the top drawer with organic cotton intimates. Founders Cayla O’Connell Davis and Lauren Sagadore are sustainability and supply chain pros who wanted to use their accumulated knowledge to do better. The answer? A conscious underwear brand committed to protecting the planet and its people. Subset is bringing together dreamy, comfy underwear without compromising on anything.. 

More On The Brief: is a cult-classic style. With high-waisted support that feels just right, a striking French leg, and our signature organic cotton, the High-Rise Brief balances comfort and class while never being Granny.

What You Should Know: This is made of organic cotton sourced from farms that rely almost exclusively on rainwater, using over 90% less irrigated water than other cotton farms.

How it Meets Our Values:

  • Responsible Materials: By using GOTS-certified organic cotton, Lenzing Tencel, and Recycled Nylon in their products. 
  • Circularity: Through their Recycling Program, which takes your old intimates and upcycles them into insulation, carpet padding, and furniture batting.
  • Carbon Neutral: For reducing greenhouse gas emissions through Cloverly, which offsets shipping emissions for each and every Subset purchase. Subset factories are 60% solar-powered. Subset is also Climate Neutral Certified. 
  • Ethical Production: By working exclusively with Fair Trade-certified factories that provide safe working conditions, living wages, and the right to unionize.
  • Giving Back: By donating 1% of annual sales to 1% For The Planet to drive positive change for environmental causes.
  • Women-Owned: Subset is founded by Cayla O’Connell Davis and Lauren Sagadore.

Behind the Brand: Cayla O’Connell Davis and Lauren Sagadore are supply chain and sustainability pros who decided to put their expertise to use by improving the only piece of clothing we wear daily– underwear. Subset is upgrading the top drawer, utilizing organic cotton to ensure that we actually want to keep our bras on when we get home.
