Be Comfortable in your own second skin

The Guardian

Discover luxurious Organic Pima Cotton and silk underwear that’s allergy-friendly and ethically made. JulieMay Lingerie makes its bra sets from Certified Organic Pima Cotton and Pure Silk to bring the most comfortable wearing experience.

One of the main reasons some bras are not breathable is that the fabric is loose, creating thermal insulation. Organic Pima Cotton is tightly woven to eliminate that sweaty feeling. Pima Cotton is three times softer than ordinary cotton, which makes Juliemay collections luxuriously soft and long- lasting.
