At Under the Hours we design and sew our collections in our Viennese studio. When sourcing our materials we pay attention to short transport routes.
We implement sustainability in our supply chain and production process in nine steps:
- green electricity in our atelier
- natural materials
- when buying our materials we look for organic labels and fair production conditions
- we dye with natural dyes
- our handmade lingerie is made to order – this way we avoid overproduction and waste
- climate neutral webhosting for our online shop
- plastic-free packaging made from recycled materials
- sustainable shipping to your home
- repair service in our studio
At Under the Hours we make lingerie from natural materials. Our fabrics are made from natural fibres and cellulose fibres such as silk, tencel, milk or orange fibres. Where possible we look for organic and Fairtrade certifications. Natural materials are breathable and kind to the skin. Further advantages are the avoidance of microplastics and, in the case of our milk silk, the upcycling of waste products.
We use nickel-free metal fasteners, sliders and rings because they are more durable than plastic parts. We choose elastic bands in high quality lingerie so that you can enjoy your new favourite underwear for a long time.
Beyond the standard size range we specialise in petite sizes. We offer sizes from 60AA to 85D depending on the model. Go to size calculator
To find your size, type your measurements into our size calculator.
For custom-made items we offer fittings in our studio or online consultations.
Many women with sensitive skin or neurodermatitis prefer to wear underwear made of smooth, soft fabrics. They pay special attention to avoid scratchy labels or seams on the inside. Lingerie made of smooth natural fibres such as silk or tencel is particularly kind to the skin. It is breathable and less sweaty than synthetic fibres in summer.
Many women who suffer from urogenital conditions such as cystitis or vaginal yeast infections prefer to wear underwear made of natural fibres. Cotton, silk and tencel are permeable to air and water, so they do not provide a germ environment for bacteria and fungi. Silk and tencel fabrics are antibacterial and anti-fungal.
Cut and fit are also important for urogenital conditions – they should be loose, airy and comfortable! That way you can feel good in your skin all around.
Our products are made to order – they are being manufactured as soon as we have received your order. This way we are able to avoid overproduction and waste.
