What types of fabrics are your bralettes and undies made out of?

Ever wonder what our base layers are made of? We know that it's important to you to know what fabrics our lingerie is made out of, how it breathes, moves, and feels. Read on to find out about the textiles Hey Mavens! uses in our lingerie designs.

US-Sourced Fabrics

We proudly source our raw materials within the United States from other small businesses. We believe in American-made products created with American-sourced supplies. As a small business ourselves, supporting and creating businesses and jobs in the United States aligns with our ethics and morals, and, happily, means that we are rarely caught in supply-chain jams while waiting for materials from overseas. The way we see it, local is the way to go!

Stretch and Comfort are key for lingerie!

All of our fabrics contain spandex for stretch and comfort. And, while polyester has a bad rap as a plastic-y, stifling, itchy fabric from the 70s, modern poly, like ours, is highly breathable, wicking, cooling, and comfortable. Straight up -- we love it, and we think you will too!

We have four main fabric types we use to make our bralettes and undies, all sourced within the US and fitting our soft and cozy standards. Let's take a look at the fabric types, their characteristics, and what makes them so special!


90% Nylon, 10% Spandex
soft + stretchy, our most transparent option 

Usually seen on our classic, and best-selling Black Cat Bralette

90% Polyester, 10% Spandex
thin, breathable, and airy

Often referred to colloquially in our circle as simply "solid," this silky knit is the backbone of our rainbow of offerings

Printed Jersey
90% Polyester, 10% Spandex
deliciously soft, with vibrant colors, and a squishy handfeel

Our prints are created in-house, and then manufactured in San Diego by our printing partner. Check out our Florals!

90% Polyester, 10% Spandex
luxe, touchable, rich, and surprisingly stretchy

We are best known for our array of velvet bralettes and undies, and this fabric is juicy!
