Recycle. Reuse. ReGirlfriend.

Heads up: ReGirlfriend labels cannot be ordered with other items at this time. Adding one will empty your cart.


We make our bras and leggings to last, but wear and tear can take its toll. When you’re finished with your old Compressive bras, leggings (and unitards), and shorts, send them to us to be recycled into new ones using the button above. You’ll get $15 store credit, avoid creating more waste on the planet, and help us close the loop. It’s like a total win-win. 

Only 1% of clothing is recycled — the rest is tossed into landfills, downcycled, or burned — and the average American throws away an estimated 81 pounds of clothes each year. (Yikes.) We want to put an end to the fast fashion cycle of buying things that don’t last — and throwing them away before their use is up.
From the beginning, we designed our leggings to be recyclable with minimal spandex content and without other fibers that can’t be sorted out. (Some other activewear fabrics mix lots of different fibers which restricts recyclability.) This allows us to easily separate the fibers, recycle them, and fully close the loop.

To send in your old Girlfriend, select the item you’re recycling from the drop down above. Proceed to checkout to purchase a shipping label, then send your item back to us. We’ll send you a gift card for $15 via email 5-7 days after your package arrives at USPS.

Once we receive your item, we work with our partners, Unifi in North Carolina, to shred the leggings, separate the polyester from the spandex, and regenerate the fibers into fabric for new Girlfriend pieces. Meanwhile, you’ll be spending your store credit on whatever your heart desires. Nice.

Shipping & Returns

Slow fashion takes time. In order to limit the distance our clothes travel and avoid extra CO2, we consolidate everything in a fulfillment center, then ship orders out to the various countries where our clothes are sold. Check out the below estimates for shipping times, and note that your order will ship within 1-4 business days of order placement date. We are not able to offer expedited shipping at this time.

  • Continental US: 7-10 business days
  • Non-Continental US / Military Bases: 7-10 business days + 2 weeks
  • Canada: 7-14 business days*
  • UK & Australia: 8-12 business days

*Please note, we are currently unable to accept orders shipping to Canada at this time. All other orders may experience shipping delays between 2-5 business days.  Thank you for all of your patience and support during these unprecedented times.

Waste Not

Only 1% of all clothing is recycled — let’s do something about that. With Recycle. Reuse. ReGirlfriend., we take your old Girlfriend Collective Compressive leggings, bras, and shorts, and turn them into new clothes that can be worn again and again. It’s new stuff made from old stuff… made from old stuff.
