About Cotton and Push
Hi, we’re Cotton & Push and we have a passion for creating beautiful skin friendly lingerie from natural fabrics.
As is the story with most exciting new businesses, our project started from necessity more than anything. We were determined to find a product that met a certain set of criteria. We wanted to find alluring, comfortable, skin friendly and eco-friendly lingerie. That didn’t exist. We decided to create it.
When shopping for undergarments, baby-dolls and comfort bras we noticed one thing…they were all made from synthetic fabrics. I often dreaded putting on a bra first thing in the morning and that was because I had dermatitis and eczema. Sadly I did not grow out of it like everyone promised me I would. My name is Alina.
Whenever I fastened a cheap bra to my body I recounted the advice my dermatologist gave me when I was 12, “You should only wear cotton,” she said. “Cotton is the only thing that will not react to your skin.”
Alas finding a cotton bra that wasn’t destined for the back of the racks seemed impossible. Could one ever feel sexy and truly comfortable at the same time?
That’s how Cotton & Push Started. Don’t get me wrong, it was tough getting here. Turns out there is a reason most commercial lingerie is made from synthetic fibres such as rayon, acrylic or polyester. It’s easy to work with. Natural fabrics are tricky, they’re stubborn, but they are oh so beautiful.
