Since then the brand has expanded to offer a full range of underwear styles, bras, lounge and sleepwear, activewear and swimwear, all with a focus on inclusivity and sustainability. TomboyX is dedicated to empowering our LGBTQ+ community year-round, and advocating for equal representation and celebration of all people. They are intentional and thorough when it comes to ethical production; their facilities are WRAP and Fair Labor Association certified, their fabrics are BCI and OEKO-TEX certified, and their headquarters is Gold Leed certified. The C-Suite at TomboyX is 80% women, 63% of their managers and above identify as LGBTQ and/or minority, and 39% of their overall team identify as LGBTQ and/or minority.
