Not happy

I am wondering who is still making undies in Australia?
For over 10 years I've been loyally wearing Bonds boyleg undies, and now it turns out they will be made in China!
Are there any Aussie manufacturers still producing smalls? Let me know, I am seriously looking for alternatives.
Boo Pacific Brands, boo!

you'll be lucky........
it's a very long time since Bond's were made here.
you could try Bodywise but really probably not a snowflake in hells chance!
you'll have to start making your own.....

Yeah, I've definitely noticed a decline in the quality of Bonds underwear, singlets and jumpers for a while and had figured they'd gone offshore... urgh.

A gorgeous Melbourne girl called Jessie Tucker makes beautiful undies and other such items.

Find her stuff here:

This is a dilemma. I looked at the undies from jessietucker and although gorgeous its not a practical replacement for the pack of 5 undies for 10 bucks type deal that mums with 4 kids need. And rarely do mums with 4 kids in my socio economic circles buy undies for over 5 bucks. And I am the norm in my area. I look forward to a practical solution. If you find one dont forget to share it!

Maybe not practical but I make everything locally in Melbourne! I have bamboo jersey too which is LOVELY, expensive yes, but beautifully soft and comfy and very very well made!
