A new year calls for new underwear. And, if you’re like a lot of us, it also calls for a personal ethics check. What sort of companies do we want to support? Where is our money going?

I know, I know…this post should have gone up at least week ago. Today is Halloween Day, the spookiest (or, for some of you, happiest) day of the year, and I’m only just now publishing our top Halloween lingerie picks.
