There's a reason Nue is known and loved as the ultimate bra alternative. The fact of the matter is bras just never fit quite right.
Statistically, it is said that eight in 10 women are currently wearing the wrong bra size. Aside from the restrictions it puts on backless and plunging styles, the struggle of ill-fitting cups, sliding straps, and wires digging into your ribs is neverending.
There's something like four billion women on the planet, each who, on average, own about eight bras. That's an estimated 32 billion bras destined to end up in landfills. Once at their final destination, decomposing bras release methane, a harmful greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. The rubber in elastic bands can take up to 50 years to biodegrade, while synthetic fabrics like polyester and lycra remain on earth for hundreds of years.
Nue is on a mission to keep bras out of landfills and in the hands of women who need them. We're working with The Bra Recyclers to reduce our carbon footprint by donating bras to women in need and/or escaping domestic violence and human trafficking.
