MATERIALS

At Underprotection we only use materials that are classified or certified sustainable. The majority of the natural materials that we use are Tencel™ Lyocell, responsible wool and organic cotton. When we use natural materials, we select qualities that are as close to 100% as possible and therefore not qualities where several different materials are included, this to make the product easier to recycle at the end of the cycle. The synthetic materials we use all come from recycled sources, be it polyester, nylon or elastane. All our synthetic materials are GRS-certified and Oeko-Tex-certified. The GRS certification guarantees that the part of the material marked as recycled is actually recycled, while the Oeko-Tex certification ensures that the material is produced without chemicals and does not contain substances that are harmful to health and the environment.

TENCEL™ LYOCELL

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers are known for their natural comfort and delivers quality, performance and versatility. It can be combined with a wide range of textile fibers such as cotton, polyester, acrylic, wool, and silk to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of fabrics. Unique physical properties of TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers lead to their great strength, efficient moisture absorption and gentleness to skin.

TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained the reputation for their environmentally responsible closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles processed water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%. This economically visible manufacturing process received the European Award for the Environment from the European Commission in the category “The Technology Award for Sustainable Development” (2000).

RECYCLED POLYESTER

The reason why recycled polyester is consid­ered as a green option in textiles is because it is using less energy and various studies all agree that it takes from 33% to 53% less en­ergy compared to what’s needed to produce virgin polyester. Besides that, it helps keeping bottles and other plastics out of the landfills and oceans, since that is what the recycled polyester is made from. It is also cited as producing far fewer emissions to the air than the production of virgin polyester.

The Recycled polyester we use has the GRS and Oeko-Tex certification.

BRA MEASUREMENT

To find the most accurate size you have to do two measurements, A: bust and B: band. Do the measurements on your bare skin. Start off by measuring all the way around your bust where it’s widest. Then measure all the way around just under your bust. We have plus sizes for mostly all of our bra’s to make sure that bigger busts can fit our bras. When a size is plus size the underband stays the same and the size of the cup will go a size up; for example a size S+ has an underband that fits a regular size S and the cup size fits a regular size M. Be aware that it’s meant for you to start out using the outer buckle of the hook and eye closure first. Then you can adjust and tighten when the underband elastic gets looser.

BOTTOM MEASUREMENT

To find your most accurate size you have to do two measurements, A: waist and B: hip. Do the measurements on your bare skin. Start off by measuring all the way around your waist where it’s narrowest. Then measure all the way round your hip where it's widest.

Wanna know the tricks for measuring? Always measure on bare skin and not over clothing. This will give you the best and most accurate result. When we are talking measurements we mean the measures you have and not the lingerie, swimwear or loungewear. Always measure yourself and then use the results to find the perfect size in the wanted style.

TOP / SHIRT / DRESS MEASUREMENT

To find your most accurate size you have to do three measurements, A: bust and B: waist and C: hip. Do the measurements on your bare skin. Start off by measuring all the way around your bust where it’s widest. Then measure all the way around your waist where it’s narrowest. Then end off by measuring all the way round your hip where it's widest. These three measurements will indicate the most accurate size for you in our tops, shirts, kimonos and dresses.
