Universal Standard donates cozy clothes to health care workers

Women’s fashion label Universal Standard is helping health care workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic stay comfortable.

The inclusive, body-positive retailer (which offers sizes from 00 to 40) has already donated $250,000 worth of soft basics that medical staff can layer underneath scrubs. Now, the company is launching a buy-one-give-one offer to shoppers: For each purchase from its Foundation collection, the brand will donate a cozy clothing item to a health care worker.  

“While we may be a young fashion company faced with our own challenges, we’ll never lose sight of the fact that we are in the business of doing good and giving back,” founders Alexandra Waldman and Polina Veksler said in a statement.  

Shop our favorites from the collection to stay cozy at home — and bring some comfort to those working night and day to save patients who’ve fallen ill with COVID-19.
