I used to put toxic chemicals on my skin on a daily basis. And you're probably doing the same thing right now. Most clothing is dyed with terrible chemicals and our skin absorbs what we put on it! Did you know that?
Every time I got dressed, I was putting those chemicals on my skin. And that doesn't even account for chemical residues left in GMO cotton or synthetic fabrics. Luckily, there is a company making clothes I can feel great about wearing.
PACT Apparel makes scrumptious organic cotton clothing that is a dream to put on. To be my whole healthy, I firmly believe that what goes on my body and how clothing, products, and food are produced, all matter just as much as what I eat and how I move.
PACT is a company that not only makes clothing that I feel cute and stylish wearing, they make everything with fairly traded organic cotton, grown on family farms in India and sewn in factories by real people under humane conditions. No sweatshops. Ever. PACT even gives us a peek into how their clothes are made through their website and social media!
I recently got my hands on some new PACT items, so I want to give you a more detailed review.
And give you the chance to win a $50 PACT gift card!!!
I'm still nursing my baby and one of my daily go-to tops that I love for this is the PACT shelf-bra camisole. It's not designed for breastfeeding but it works perfectly for pull-down nursing. The organic cotton is buttery soft, the shelf bra gives me support but still allows for easy breastfeeding, the straps are adjustable, and the perfect amount of stretch keeps the camisole's shape intact despite being repeatedly pulled down and grabbed by little baby hands . I also never have to worry when Baby J decides to suck on my shirt because PACT uses only non-toxic dyes!
I actually own 6 of these tops now and I wear them ALL THE TIME, but this latest one I got in black is perfect for layering under other tops when it gets chilly, and black has always been a classic color choice in my wardrobe. I also work out in it! It's really the perfect basic, all-around, wear-everywhere camisole.
I also got to try out a pair of organic cotton boyshorts in the new limited edition squash blossom print. I own a lot of organic PACT undies already, but I always opt for the bikini cut so I was really excited to try the boy short style. They are extremely comfortable and the extra coverage makes them perfect for more active activities because they stay put and don't ride up. They also add a little extra bum coverage when you want to feel less exposed, but they're still cute and sexy. No granny panties here! It's not really in line with My Whole Healthy or my personal values to post revealing photos of me in my underwear on the internet, but there are plenty of photos of how these babies fit on the PACT website and you can trust me when I say the comfort is off the charts! I'll definitely be adding more PACT boy short styles to my underwear drawer.
The last new item I tried out were the organic cotton knee socks in the limited edition print, desert sky railroad stripe. Living in San Diego, I don't get much opportunity to rock knee socks because I basically live in flip flops, but I love the fit and feel of these socks so the next cool day we have, these socks will be perfect! They really stay up, the print is versatile to work with different outfits, and the organic cotton is soft and comfortable. I wore them around my house all day, and maybe took a few more pics of my feet in the air just for fun ;) Nothing like kicking up your heels to brighten your day!
