Bamboo for Every Body
Date Posted:2 July 2019
When Amanda and I started Bamboo Body back in 2005, it was our mission to bring bamboo clothing to everyone. All those years ago there was very little awareness about the devastating impact that the textile industry was having on the environment and the people working along the supply chain. Hardly any clothing was made from eco-conscious and sustainable fabrics and those items that were available on the market were very alternate in appearance and generally not easy for the average person to incorporate into their everyday style.
We were so excited when we discovered bamboo fabric and wanted everyone to be able to experience its beautiful, luxurious softness and have the opportunity to look good, feel good and do good. That’s the ethos our brand was built upon. It’s a constant work in progress and as time goes on we always come back to our original vision.
Bamboo Body launched its first collection in early 2006 with six styles in five sizes. We listened to customer feedback and gradually introduced new styles for different body types and increased our size range almost all styles.
We have now made our clothing range more inclusive by introducing plus size women's clothing up to 4XL in our best sellers and we are also working towards including more petite styles and re-introducing size XXS.
We want everyone to be able to experience the luxurious feel and comfort of bamboo clothing. If you have any specific style requests you would like to see in our extended size range please let us know in our comment section below. We're always listening and really appreciate your feedback. While we can’t make changes overnight (we aren’t fast fashion!) we do continuously work on incorporating your ideas into our collection over time (keep your eyes peeled for new colours arriving in the next few months).
In the meantime, have a look at some photos from a recent shoot we did with the beautiful Lauren. She's size XL/XXL and 180cm tall. All of the styles pictured are available in sizes XS - 4XL and the pieces are wardrobe building blocks that can be mixed and matched and layered.
