Holiday Packing with Y.O.U Underwear

Summer is finally here and many of us are starting to holiday for the first time in two years. If you’re out of practice, don’t worry! We’ve compiled a handy guide so you won’t forget to pack the essentials. 

Make a splash in your Y.O.U matching set

Our matching sets double up as a bikini, saving you precious luggage space. Our founder Sarah regularly swims outdoors and has worn her Y.O.U Undies in the sea, lakes and rivers. Made from double-lined organic cotton fabric, they're super comfortable, retain their shape and don't go see-through when wet.

Providing ample coverage, you can opt for a bikini brief and thong or use our 2-in-1 boxers and boy shorts as swim shorts. What’s more, our bralettes come with adjustable, two-way straps so you can wear them straight one day and in a cross-back style the next. If you don’t fancy a swim, Y.O.U undies are also perfect for sunbathing in, as Sarah is demonstrating here!

Y.O.U undies for every day of the week

Are you someone who panic chucks 14 days worth of undies into your suitcase for a 7 day trip? We sell a range of money-saving multipacks so you can pack reassured you have enough undies for the week. Every pair is made from Fairtrade and GOTS certified organic cotton that is PETA-Approved vegan. Why? Because organic cotton is softer, more durable and better for your body, providing the ultimate holiday comfort. 

Brighten up your holiday with our Mara collection

For a bold, summery twist, we recommend our Mara collection. Available in eye-catching green, red, yellow and blue, the Maasai beadwork inspired print looks beautiful in the sunlight. Plus, for every pair sold, we donate one pair of underwear to girls in the Maasai communities of Oloishobor and Olorgesailie, as well as support the work of the Ajuma Foundation in Kenya.

Don’t forget these suitcase essentials 

Y.O.U carved into the sand

Travel bag: All Y.O.U orders are first packaged in a reusable, organic cotton drawstring bag which happens to be the perfect travel companion. We use ours to store our toiletries and electricals in!

Reusable makeup remover pads: There’s no need to take non-biodegradable wipes. Reusable makeup remover pads, like these ones, are lightweight and take up less luggage space.

Bamboo toothbrush: Hands up if you’ve ever forgotten your toothbrush! We love packing this sustainable wooden toothbrush which is entirely plastic-free.

Visit our sustainable marketplace to find more low impact toiletries worth travelling with.
