Clothing And Mental Health

Bamboo Clothing

At Positive Outlook Clothing, we supply sustainable bamboo clothing that looks great, feels comfortable and is ethically sourced. The products that we stock are selected with the mental health of both our customers and those who create our garments in mind. 

Enclothed Cognition

In 2012, Dr H. Adam and Dr A. D. Galinsky conducted an experiment in order to investigate the relationship between the clothing that we wear and how this affects our behaviours.

Here, participants were given a lab coat to wear, an article of clothing that was found in a pretest to be associated with attentiveness and carefulness. It was found that simply wearing this item of clothing increased performance on attention-related tasks.

From these findings, they coined the term ‘enclothed cognition’. This phrase refers to the systematic influence that clothing has on the wearer's psychological processes.

In short, what you wear impacts upon how you think and act.

Our sustainable clothing is designed for comfort, style and to be inclusive. The bamboo fabric that we use will have you feeling wonderful, not just because it looks great on all body types, but also because it is created in an ethical and sustainable way. 

Our Bamboo Clothing Suppliers

Here at Positive Outlook Clothing, we believe in ethical manufacturing.

We make sure to only use suppliers who provide healthy working conditions for their employees, to ensure both physical and mental wellness.

This includes:
- Good living wages
- Safe working conditions
- Fair working hours

We find that it’s not just the quality and fit of our bamboo clothing that our customers love, it’s also the knowledge that they are buying sustainable products that are created fairly.

Bamboo Clothing


The vast majority of us have looked in the mirror and picked ourselves apart over how we look. It doesn’t matter how thin, muscular or toned you are, you can always find some aspect of yourself that you wish you could change. Doing this day after day is going to negatively impact your mental health.

These compulsive behaviours are driven by celebrity culture. Regardless of how well you eat and how much you work out, the odds are you’ll never get that Kardashian bum or Henry Cavill’s abs.

The important thing is to be OK with that, to appreciate your body for all that it does for you each day, and to recognise that your appearance is not the most important or appealing thing about you.

Our bamboo clothing range is available in sizes from XS to XXXL - it is made for everyone! We also made the decision to use a diverse range of models, including different shapes, sizes and ethnicities. We think it’s important to be as representative as possible.
