You know that feeling when you open your drawer and realize it contains underwear from, like, the eighth grade? That happened to me recently. I’m 24.
Undergarments can be an emotional topic for women. I grew up in a home of three girls, so I feel qualified to say so. I’ve tried a lot of different brands, whether purchased or “borrowed” from a sister; finding the perfect pair can be tough.
As soon as the tech gods got word of my underwear faux pas, they inundated me with undies ads galore. When I noticed just about every podcast host singing MeUndies’ praises, I took their recommendations and ordered two women’s bikinis. I was so pleased that I later returned for a pack of thongs.
A Bit of Background
MeUndies delivers “softer-than-soft” underwear (and now apparel) straight to their customers’ doors. The company focuses on making customers “feel good,” and they start with quality materials. Their widely praised Lenzing MicroModal fabric comes from beechwood trees, and it’s the secret behind MeUndies’ exceptional basics. MeUndies keeps the underwear game fun - they deliver insanely soft undies, bold designs, and good feels to your door.
While MeUndies offers every imaginable style - hipsters, cheeky briefs, thongs, and bikinis, to name just a few - each has a universal, no frills aesthetic. They look like the most classic definition of underwear, except they’re detailed with fun colors and standout prints.
MeUndies quite literally caters to the “classic,” “bold,” and “adventurous” shopper. Their fabrics range from plain neutrals to zany prints, and shoppers have the ability to choose between Classic, Bold, and Adventurous designs when purchasing individual pairs. I chose two “classic” bikinis, then went wild and purchased a “mystery pack” with a surprise assortment of thongs.
When I received my first pair, I was delighted to find that MeUndies’ Lenzing MicroModal delivers on its “softer-than-soft” promise. The fabric feels soft yet durable, and their signature waistband design is incredibly comfortable and elastic.
The Irony of Underwear
Describing my underwear’s performance feels ironic. In reality, I don’t want it doing all that much. Underwear has a bad habit of doing things like wedging, creeping, twisting, pulling, sagging… to which I say - hard pass. That all said, here’s how the MeUndies made me feel:
When I slip into my MeUndies, I understand the initial “feel good” the brand offers, but living a full day in them is where I’ve fully realized what that promise means. Without my underwear’s whereabouts on my mind, I have the freedom to think, do, and simply be - all while feeling really good. The highest and most honest praise I can give MeUndies is that they’re designed and executed so beautifully that I regularly forget I’m even wearing them. And, let’s be clear: I’ve walked, hiked, run, biked, worked, dated, and slept in my MeUndies.
A Worthy Investment
A pair of MeUndies isn’t cheap, but their quality is noticeable. Over the past 18 months, I’ve made a concerted effort to invest more money into long-lasting and sustainable pieces, so I feel comfortable splurging for the right cause.
At $18 per women’s pair, MeUndies are around the same price point of Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS line (which I’ve also tried) and are cheaper than Hanky Pankys (which typically fray without proper maintenance - see below). A Men's Classic Boxer Brief costs $24.
MeUndies also offers discounts and bundling. Members get access to exclusive offers and discounts (while paying nothing to join), and Mystery Pack shoppers like myself receive discounts for buying cheeky briefs in bulk.
Low Maintenance for the Win
Lastly, I must add that I’ve both washed and dried (gasp!) my MeUndies on several occasions, and they’ve maintained their softness and shape. They require no hand-washing, hang-drying, or dry cleaning, and they don’t unravel or tear, either. I have sadly ruined my fair share of intimates in the past, but my MeUndies aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
