about - our 100% organic cotton underwear
our moms always told us to wear cotton underwear, so we did, but without really understanding why.
now we're moms ourselves, and we often think about the advice we want to pass along to our daughters. when it comes to underwear, there's research that shows that mom’s advice is true—most doctors agree that 100% cotton really is best for our bodies.
we created ODDOBODY to give a nod to folk wisdom, to whisper networks, to our moms. we want to better understand WHY certain things are better; and, fundamentally, to better understand the ways of our bodies.
we think of 100% organic cotton underwear as a direct reflection of this desire to take control of the health and wellness of our bodies. we think there is a clear correlation between knowing more about our bodies and feeling empowered in our bodies. underwear can be functional, healthful, and SEXY.
we spent years developing ODDOBODY—we found the perfect organic pima cotton (custom-produced for us in lima, peru by a women-owned factory), the right elastic (just the right amount of give), and the most flattering cut (wedgie-proof! according to our fans).
we hope you feel good in oddobody.

The sheer, finely spun 100% organic pima cotton that's used in every pair of ODDOBODY underwear is imported from Peru, which is known for having the most idyllic cotton-growing conditions. We've built our supply chain through a Peru fair trade certified, family-run manufacturer and have had the pleasure of visiting our women-run production factories where our garments are cut and sewn, where the fabric is knit, and the farm where the organic cotton is grown.
