Women’s Bikini in Summer Sunset (September’s design of the month) – $14 when you subscribe, regularly $18
This month, I stuck with the Women’s Bikini style that I received last month. MeUndies sent out an e-mail preview of the September design a few weeks before it shipped, “Summer Sunset” by Los Angeles artist Charlie Edmiston. I really liked this print, so I was happy to receive it this month! I thought it was a little reminiscent of Kandinsky.
I always look out for consistency with an “essentials” subscription like this, so I’m happy to say that fit- and quality-wise, this pair meet the same high expectations set last month. My first two pairs of MeUndies are the first ones I grab out of the drawer every time I do laundry – they are so comfortable, it’s addictive!
MeUndies is making some changes to their subscription model so that it won’t be focused just on the new designs every month going forward. I love the designs I’ve gotten so far, but it sounds like they’re giving their customers some new options, including a toned-down option:
We’ve learned a lot about what our customers want over the last 5 years, and we’re excited to expand our offering. Whether your tastes are Classic, Bold or Adventurous, there’s going to be something for everyone. We’ll send out more details on these new plans by October 1st so you can mix it up and build a drawer that has something for every mood.
Since you’ll soon be able to customize your plan, we’re going to start curating the colors and prints we send to you each month. Your subscription notification email will no longer include a preview of your color or print, but we know you’ll love what we pick for you. We’re so excited about our new assortment and we can’t wait to share it with you. And if you aren’t in the mood for something new, you’ll still be able to skip a month.
Love this idea, because I’m sure there are people who don’t love crazy prints who would still love MeUndies. They sent this fun sticker activity to help promote the change:
Now I just need to find a place to hide the rest of these tiny underwear stickers; I’m thinking they’d be funny to stick on top of random family photos, right? 😉
Sometimes dressing a little naked stick figure man is just the perfect distraction. I love a brand with a sense of humor.
Finally, I thought we should check in on one of the pairs I received last month. When I’m paying more than $10/pair for underwear, I really want to make sure it’s worth it:
I received this pair in August. We do laundry weekly-ish (usually a little more often), so these have been washed and dried in a machine 4-6 times. A few people suggested last month to line dry them, but I wanted to see how they’d hold up if I just washed them normally. There’s definitely a little bit of pilling, but these seem to be wearing better than many of my other brands. I was more worried about the waistband and edge stitching, but they’re 100% intact as well! They’re still every bit as comfortable and I didn’t notice any shrinking, either.
Verdict: At $14 per pair per month, MeUndies women’s underwear are definitely pricier than buying a basic 6-pack of cotton underwear elsewhere. However, the discounted subscription prices are similar to other name brands I’ve tried, and these actually live up to their reputation as “the world’s most comfortable underwear” — and now that I’ve been wearing them for awhile, they do seem like they’re built to last! This month’s design was a big hit for me, too.
Have you tried MeUndies? Would you stick with the fun patterns or opt for a “Classic” styles option?
