We’ve chosen to use Lenzing Modal for so many reasons. It’s a super high quality, botanic fibre and it’s amazingly soft. We’re not even exaggerating. Truly soft. Plus, Lenzing, who produce the fibre, are one innovative company who are committed to environmental sustainability.
The raw material used to produce Lenzing Modal is beechwood trees. Lenzing is an Austrian company and they source more than half of the wood from within Austria and the rest from neighbouring countries. Beechwood propagates naturally, which means no irrigation or planting is required. Lenzing works with the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC™) to ensure the wood is sustainably sourced.
The organic matter is then broken down to turn it into Modal fibres. This is where Lenzing really shines. Their innovative process is resource efficient and closed loop - which means 95% of production materials are recovered in the factory.
The fibres are then knitted into our fabrics and dyed. We knit/dye some of our Modal fabric here in Australia, and some in India (the label on your garment will tell you where yours was made). In both cases we knit the Lenzing Modal fibres with a small amount of elastane. The elastane strands are super fine and they give our fabrics strength, helping them to retain their shape and last longer.
First measure your underbust - this will give you your band size.
Now measure your bust. Subtract your underbust measurement from your bust measurement. The difference will give you your cup size.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN UNDERBUST & BUST MEASUREMENTS
Bra sizing is about the difference in size between the band (the number) and the cup (the letter). The two are relative! That's why cup sizes vary on different size bands. For example the cup volume of a 10B is bigger than the cup volume of an 8B.
When you change just the cup size, it won't affect your band size. However when you change band sizes, the cup size changes slightly too. So you may find that when you go up a band size, you may have to go down a cup size and visa versa.
This also explains what is sometimes called 'sister sizes'. Basically, each bra size has two sister sizes that are very similar in size:
Sister Size 1
Sister Size 2
While every body is different, lots of people find they can fit bras within the sister range.
