6. Mary Young

Another brand focused on self-love and body inclusivity is Mary Young. This is the Canadian lingerie brand you'll want to check out ASAP. Founded in 2014, Mary Young boasts lingerie that is a mix of sexy and functional, made from soft bamboo fabric and elastic to flatter any shape. Their products are made ethically while also being high quality, and run at prices similar to brands such as Victoria’s Secret. Although this may not be the cheapest product you can find on the market, you know when buying Mary Young that you are getting products that will last, all while supporting a Canadian boss woman, which in my opinion is the best option anyway! You can purchase her products at www.maryyoung.ca
