Not only is Stella McCartney known for dressing the stars, but she is widely known and loved for using eco-friendly materials in all of her fashion designs. Well, she is expanding her eco-friendly fashion collections with her brand new “Stella” lingerie line.

The British designer’s sexy, but comfortable lingerie is made from French Calais lace and silk, along with organic cotton gussets and recycled metal hardware.

Women can choose from five different bra shapes including molded underwire, low plunge, strapless and a seamless, underwire-free style. All come in different varieties such as, smooth, mesh or lace fabrics.

Bras can be quite uncomfortable, and some of the prettiest lingerie is the worst. But, McCartney has focused on comfort, as well as style. For example, bra cups come in 8-millimeter-thick-foam compared to the traditional 12mm. This makes them 25 percent lighter than your normal bra.

“Well-made lingerie is key,” McCartney told Zalopany. “Feeling constricted by one’s underwear just isn’t my thing; you need to rely on the quality. It has to fit, function, and do its job first and foremost.”

Now, you can look and feel sexy in comfy bras and panties, all while benefiting the environment.

Keep an eye out for “Stella” while shopping at Stella McCartney, Bergdorf Goodman, Nordstrom, Barneys New York and online at Net-a-Porter.

    I love the look of her new lingerie but wonder if I could afford it? In this economy, sometimes budget trumps comfort. On the other hand, I am way past my ‘wearing sexy lingerie’ stage of life, so maybe I’m just old. :)
