Bodywear Lab is a London based premium bodywear (swimwear, lingerie & activewear) shopping platform born out of need for a Sustainable Lux Shopping and Design Destination.
In 2019, Nichole de Carle started working on formulating a new business venture. Upon meeting Kasia Koniarek, who just left her corporate job, they created a unique sustainable shopping concept.
Bodywear Lab was born out of need for a truly sustainable, inclusive high-end bodywear shopping destination.
Both Nichole and Kasia are passionate about saving the planet, cannot put up with greenwashing, therefore wanted to create a fully-transparent retail destination for customers who want to shop sustainably but don’t know where to start.
Designed in the midst of COVID-19, Bodywear Lab gives you a full interactive high-end shopping experience from the comfort of your home. From 1 to 1 shopping and fitting sessions, through video tutorials, to enabling you to order fabric swatches to be able to ‘feel the fabric’ like you would in a store, these girls thought just about everything. They really care about making your shopping experience special so if you have any suggestions, drop them an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Nichole is one of the founding females - driving the Bodywear Lab shopping concept. Being a serial entrepreneur and a visionary, the girl can never really sit still on an idea. She is forever thinking about how to strengthen the business case, making a more holistic support system for her team and creating a rewarding and sustainable service for her clients. Her mission for Bodywear Lab is to offer an incubation space for like-minded entrepreneurs and influencers to collectively design, create and sell products that educate and build a strong community of conscious consumers.

Nichole believes even the small things we can commit to daily, can make a big impact to the lives of others, she chooses to be creative with her wardrobe and cycle when on the move.
She chooses to be clever with her wardrobe, by reusing and repurposing her clothes, buying less, exploring recycled solutions, choosing quality over fast fashion and getting creative in swap shops to style and freshen up her current wardrobe. Swishing, trading clothes and donating to charity is definitely a fun friendly way of creating your own style.
She chooses to cycle as an alternative to road or public transport. The way you get around each day, can help to reduce your own carbon footprint. Less cars on the road will result in less air pollution. Imagine how this change can help slow down the severity of Global warming, if we all do our bit daily.

Kasia strongly believes that we can still turn the tide on the overarching environmental disaster. It is only a matter of understanding the problem and changing our bad behaviour. She is super passionate about helping people understand how to become mindful citizens of the world. Do her a favour and check out her favourite Sustainability section on our website.
Since becoming a more aware consumer, Kasia loves combining high-end basics with treasured charity-shop finds. It is all about quality and not quantity for her. Kasia’s passion for design led her to making her own capsule clothing collections. Since switching to mindful shopping, she appreciates every single piece in her wardrobe.
Kasia hates waste, whether it is food or fashion, she is always on a lookout for smart reusing and repurposing solutions. As part of your shopping experience, you can now order Fabric Swatches, introduced by Kasia to not only help you experience the quality of our products before purchasing, but also help with minimising fabric waste in our Chelsea studio.
