This is a review of their Premium subscription ($65.00 per box).

I’m working on developing my underwear drawer beyond just the same neutral-toned undies I tend to buy over and over again. This subscription not only seemed fun but also focused on quality—they work with brands like Honeydew Intimates and Cosabella, rather than random manufacturers with so-so products.

I also appreciate that they’re so inclusive in their sizing! I’ve seen similar subscriptions with much more limited size options, or subscriptions that make plus customers sign up for a more expensive subscription. The array of sizes and inclusive nature of their company shows me that they really try to walk the walk of their mission to empower, inspire, and serve women of all shapes and sizes.

I also noticed this on their site—the company donates 1% of the underwear they ship to organizations in need, they spend 1% of their time volunteering, and 1% of sales revenue per quarter goes to their giving partners. How cool! I love when a subscription company cares about their community as much as they do their product.

Okay, now on to the undies! Keep in mind that I’m about a 10 in jeans, with larger hips and thighs. I usually buy a size large in underwear and chose size large for myself when setting up my subscription.

Cosabella Pink Lace Panty in M/L – Value $28.00

These undies are so pretty! I love the bubblegum pink color. Along with the scalloped lace, this pair feels very bright, light, and summery.

What I like most about this sheer style is that the waistband is essentially a 4-ish inch wide band of lace. It only has a bit of vertical stretch to it, but it’ll stretch very wide without feeling weak or taxed. In short, it’s super comfortable to wear, and I don’t get that hard crease where a thinner waistband would pinch into my side. The lace along the back lays flat, too, so there’s not much worry about VPL or anything. These were a little on the snug side, I will say, though not so much that they were uncomfortable to wear. Though I do wish they were just a size large rather than size M/L.

I’m most surprised by how soft and sturdy the stretch lace is on these. They’re basically a poly-elastane blend, but they feel much tougher than other lace styles I’ve tried. I feel like they’ll hold up for awhile (with gentle washing), unlike other undies I’ve had that seem to immediately tear or fray.

Cosabella Seafoam Lace Panty in M/L – Value $28.00?

The second pair in the box seems to be a variation on the other Cosabella pair. Everything I was a fan of in the last pair repeats here, and there’s the added bonus that this is one of my favorite colors. So it’s a win all around. I couldn’t find this specific color online, but I linked to the style above to give an idea of value.

I like the pattern in the lace a bit better than in the first pair, too. Did you notice that “layered” look that the lace creates in the last pair? I think it’s more apparent here. It’s just an effect—there’s just one layer of lace on these. But the ruffle-ish look on the back of the undies looks really flattering on!

Aren’t these tiny fan designs cute? I think they have kind of a Great Gatsby flair.

Cosabella Lace-Trimmed Bikini, Size Large – Value $9.99

These undies have a soft cotton-blend body with way more stretch than I would’ve expected. The lace on these is a bit thicker and looks almost doily-like. The stretch is still there, though!

I like having this comfy, more casual pair of undies to round out the collection. I will say the trim around the legs didn’t lay as nicely as the flat lace of the last two pairs, but these will still be a great pick for wearing under jeans or flowier skirts and dresses.

I’d not worn a ton of Cosabella underwear before this, and I’ve got to say, I’m impressed by these picks!

Verdict: I was so happy with this box! The total value inside the box was almost $66.00, so it comes out pretty even with the cost of the subscription. Each piece feels super high quality and looked so pretty—sometimes colorful undies can be a little too bright or too bold and end up looking juvenile or cartoony, but these pairs felt fun and sophisticated at the same time. I really liked the undies that I got (in a discrete little box, no less), and I love knowing my dollars are going towards this community-conscious company.

  1. Not everyone has the option of shopping at VS. Very pretty options for larger plus sized women.

  2. I’m quite content with my 5 for $27 panties from VS even moreso now…

  3. Anna. Is this a review of the $65 or $35 box? I’m confused – at the beginning of the article you say it’s the premium box at $65 and at the end of the article you say it’s $35. For $35 it’s a good deal but not at $65. Please clarify. Thanks.

    Also I don’t think one percent donations are very substantial!!

    • You caught me, Beth! Sorry for the mix-up – I was looking at the wrong numbers when I wrote my Verdict! It’s all updated now. Still a cute subscription in my book, and you at least get what you pay for, but everyone’s comments about the charitable aspects are definitely making me do a doubletake with this guy… Thanks for your helpful comment!

  4. Isn’t this a review of the Premium, $65, box? I would be interested in this box if it were $35 for $66 RV but if it just exceeds the value by $1 then I can just go to Nordstrom Rack and buy 3 pairs of my choice for that price or less.

    • Thanks for catching that you guys! I was looking at the wrong pricing info when I did my verdict – I updated it so all should make sense now. You’re right that the value of the box is just about equal with the value of the undies all totalled up, so it’s not necessarily a steal.

      But I am still really happy with the pieces I got. I think you’re right, Missm, that you could probably find equivalent pieces at a place like Nordstrom Rack, though the one closest to me is still a bit of a drive – plus you have to shuffle through a bunch of styles and sizes once you’re there. I guess, if you’re looking for convenience, then this subscription is worth it (if not a huge deal), but if not, you’re right – you can probably nab similar products elsewhere!

      Thanks for reading (and for catching that pricing issue)!

  5. “The company donates 1% of the underwear they ship to organizations in need”. Please, Anna, think about that statement before you conclude that they’re so magnanimous, and how amazing that is. They ship three panties for every $35 they get. That’s the basic package – I don’t know how many people would be silly enough to shell out $65 for three panties. To ship 1% of panties they sell (one panty), they’d need to sell a minimum of 33 boxes, which adds up to 99 panties (we’ll be more magnanimous and round 99 up to 100). So for every [$35 x 33] = $1,155 they make, they donate ONE panty. Super-magnanimous.

    I assume the monthly accounting goes like this: “OK, we made $10,395 this month… That was a good month! Send Susan out to WalMart to buy nine Hanes panties and a bubble envelope to ship them in.”

    • Handclap, preach!
      Not generous at all. Most donations need to begin at 5 percent. I have never heard of a company tooting its own horn over a measley 1 percent. Sounds scammy…
