Basic Woman October 2020 Review
Crop Top, Size Large
I can foresee this shirt getting lots of love! It is slinky, soft, and perfectly oversized. Typically I go for full-length tees, but this cropped shirt falls at the perfect length; when I pair it with high-waisted jeans or a skirt, I can comfortably and confidently go about my day without showing too much skin. The stretchy bamboo fabric feels great against my skin, plus it is eco-friendly, too – win-win!
I would readily pay the subscription cost of $19.99 for this shirt alone.
I was delighted when I realized that these socks were not another boring pair of black socks. The colorful speckles and stripes make for a fun, mature pattern that I can't wait to pair with my business casual work attire. They are made of sustainable bamboo, polyester, rubber (what now?), and spandex. There is no way these socks will be falling down, thanks to the stretchy bamboo and spandex.
I really like these thin socks, perfect to wear with flats and slip-on shoes; this is definitely not a winter or boot sock by any means, though. These socks should fit a US size 5-10 comfortably.
Bikini Underwear Bottoms, Size Large
I am so picky when it comes to shopping for seamless underwear. I wear scrubs to work, and if you've ever worn scrubs, you know that avoiding an underwear line while wearing any undies with cheek coverage is somewhat impossible. Well, I put these through the test, and I am thoroughly impressed by Basic Woman's version of the seamless panty! Nylon and spandex help to smooth and stretch the fabric over your skin, so you can barely see any evidence of them under my scrubs. Awesome! There is another unique feature to this pair that I was very interested in: this pair's label on the back has an indicator that fades when it is time to recycle them. Genius!
Verdict: I am genuinely impressed by Basic Woman's outstanding quality. For basics that feel luxurious and seemingly durable, I feel that $19.99 is a steal. This subscription's special "underwear expiration" label inspired me to go through my drawers and pitch A LOT of underwear, so I am also thankful to them for that push in the right direction. I am so comfortable in all three of my pieces this month, and I can't wait to see the other styles they have to offer.
