Branwyn ‘innerwear’ for cozy days

It’s that time of year…when we all want to cozy up. We’re also shopping for holiday stocking stuffers, and Branwyn should be your go-to for the women in your life.

I tried out their Merino wool bralette and their hipster underwear, and can confirm that this is what you want next to your skin this winter…whether you’re getting outdoors and into the wild, traveling, or just staying home and staying warm.

The Essential Bralette

As the name implies, this low-impact bra is minimalist in design, with an unpadded shelf. The four-way stretch and a two-inch-wide band gives you surprising support, and the adjustable straps can become cross straps as desired. It’s machine washable and driable, made of the brand’s signature GLDNspun Merino Blend (81% merino wool, 12% nylon, 7% spandex). This means it’s naturally moisture-wicking and odor resistant.

It comes in XS-XL. For reference, I’m a 36B and a medium fits well. There’s a full-size chart on the website to help you out. This bra is perfect for every day activities, but you’d need more support than it can offer if you’re pursuing a serious sport or hike (unless you’re very small chested).

Pick up the bralette for only $38 in four colors (black and three shades of nude).

The Essential Hipster:

Branwyn sells three styles of underwear, including the thong, bikini, and hipster. The hipster provides the most coverage over the hips and bum, but the fit is really flattering…in no way is the hipster ‘granny panties’. It’s made of the same wool blend, designed to wick away moisture and sweat. This is the fabric you want next to your skin when you’re traveling, trust me! Pick up a pair for $34 in black (the other styles do come with all four color options).
