EBY is a new monthly intimates subscription service that delivers affordable & luxurious seamless undies to your door while empowering women through microfinance. 10% of EBY’s new sales provide small loans to women to start their own businesses. This subscription is founded by Renata Black (a microfinance guru trained under Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus) and Sofia Vergara (an actress, business powerhouse, & seamless undie devotee).
I love the empowering message and the mission behind these panties!

EBY Underwear Subscription April 2018 Review

While EBY does not send a packing slip, they do include a standard insert card detailing their mission, and other key information about the brand.
EBY Cheeky Panty in Pink– Retail Value $16.00 (available by subscription only)
The “Cheeky” Description from EBY:
Low-rise front, snug on the hips, our cheek-baring undies won’t ride up, so you can show more cheek while your undies stay in place through your important meeting, lunch or after work cocktails.
EBY doesn’t use elastic or seams, instead, they use a special fabric that smoothly shapes your EBY undies to your body, and eliminates all traces of panty lines.
Here’s a closer photo of their “seamless seam.”
These undies are made in Sri Lanka out of 85% polyamide and 15% Elastane and have 100% cotton lining.
EBY recommends hand washing in cold water, air drying flat to dry to preserve the integrity of the panty. I’m totally ignoring the care instructions – and washing with my other undergarments on a normal cycle, with warm water, in a washing machine. I am also tossing them in the dryer on normal, and they’re holding up just fine.
The first 3 months of this sub, I received a solid colored brief. For the past 2 months of this sub, I received a solid colored cheeky. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high – but it feels a little on the boring side to me. I’ve yet to see a print!
Verdict: I still maintain that I really like these panties, and for me, they do stay in place and I’ve never had a bunching or rolling issue. And, since I now have 5 pairs of them they cycle through my rotation often. They are soft, comfortable, silky, and I never have to worry about panty lines, even at the gym. While $16 is on the high end of what I’d typically pay for a single pair of panties, I like the practical convenience of having new undies delivered to my door monthly, the quality of the product, and the fact that a portion of that money is going to help other women achieve their goals. I think the value here is the convenience, you can cross “buying undies” off of that to-do list forever! That said, that’s only true if this style fits your body and you like them as much as I do.
I’ll also say that although I know what to expect each month (a little pink box with 1 pair of underwear and the same insert with the same message), I’m not super excited to see it in my mailbox. I wish there was a little extra or something fun to look forward to. To me, this feels like an [over-priced] Amazon subscribe-and-save purchase at this point.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Since you will likely have different profile answers, it’s unlikely that you will get this exact pair. However, you should receive your box about a week after you sign up – so you definitely could still get a first delivery in May.
Value Breakdown: At $16.00 for this box, you’re paying $16.00 for a pair of undies, but helping to fund someone’s dream.
