Hipster Bloem In Blue
Made in USA
The Bloem is in full glorious bloom in our newest print designed by Rochelle Porter. A lifelong lover of global design traditions, the Atlanta-based artist takes cues from the breezy hues of her Caribbean roots, the stark simplicity of Scandinavian design and the bold geometrics of West African weaves to create vibrant, eye-catching textiles.
Rochelle cares as deeply about sustainability and fair pay as we do. She believes everyone along the value chain should have the chance to live well—from the farmer who picks the pesticide-free organic cotton for its textiles, to the customer who puts them on. We're so honored to have her beautiful print brightening up our Thundies. Find more of her work here:
The Hipster is sized from x small - x large and is designed to sit in the natural crease at the top of the leg, cover your bum, and reach to the hip. We recommend the Hipster if you are flat in the tummy and/or short in the rise to the waist. For many of us, the Hipster does not reach over the apex of our tummy roll at which point the natural laws of gravity take over and the Hipster will roll down. In this situation, we have a solution in the slightly higher waisted, original option.
Thunderpants 90% organic cotton/10% spandex fabric is sturdy, very stretchy, and has great retention to give our garments just enough stretch and bounce back. It helps the undies to stay up and on, and the other garments to keep their shape without sagging or bagging. We use the same soft organic cotton blend to cut our binding into a wide strip instead of using elastic so their is never any irritating elastic against your skin. All the garments are made locally and lovingly in Portland, OR.
To preserve the vibrant colors and life of the fabric we suggest you do not soak or bleach your Thunderpants items. Use a gentle detergent in a cold machine wash and dry your Thunderpants on the line (they will survive drying on low, but may fade a bit and cut down slightly on longevity). If you do wash warm or dry, make sure not to use too much heat as heat will break down the spandex!
