Basic Woman Review + 50% Off Coupon – November 2020

This subscription is a convenient way of gradually replacing your old pieces with sustainable and eco-friendly options.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Basic Woman November 2020 Review


Grey Tank Top, Size Large

Wearing this tank served as an excellent reminder that my tank collection is trash. My newest tank top is probably about 10 years old (brb, cringing). They are still technically functional, but now that I take a closer look, the little holes at the armpits, the stretched out straps… I definitely needed this upgrade! I love the slinky material of this tank, and it sits just right: long enough where it will stay tucked in and wide enough that it is not stretched tightly over my chest. This shade of grey is an essential neutral, and I hope to find more of these tanks in future shipments!


Grey and White Crew Socks

The pattern on this month’s pair is less playful and more straight to business. I love it! They are made from a crowd-pleasing blend of bamboo, polyester, rubber, and spandex, perfect for a slip-on or casual shoe.


I like the nice tight fit of this pair. Even though they seem thin, I can tell they are built to last.


Grey Bikini Bottoms, Large

Last month was my first experience with Basic Woman’s seamless panties, and I am so hooked. The fit is excellent; my cheeks are covered, and the fabric stays put thanks to a rubberized band around the hips and legs. Typically it is hard to find a pair of seamless undies that go unnoticed under scrubs, but this pair is virtually undetectable. Another thing I love about Basic Woman’s underwear is that the label that is printed on the back fades when it is time to toss them; it is a great reminder to keep your basics fresh and to not hoard undergarments.

Verdict: Once again, I am thoroughly impressed. I’ve paid much more for basics that pale in comparison to the quality of Basic Woman’s items. I love the thought of subscribing and eventually replacing all of my worn under clothes with these luxe finds; I look forward to seeing what other styles Basic Woman has to offer.

  1. I think that I will have to try this. I got BasicMan for my teenage son for over a year and I was always jealous of how soft and comfortable the material was.

  2. Got this for the first time and absolutely loved it! Got the same tank, but socks were ankle and underwear was navy. Everything was super soft. Socks seemed a bit big but overall I think I’ll keep the sub for another month or two

    • Ooo I am excited to try their ankle socks coming in this month’s shipment! Thanks for reading 🙂

  3. Hmm, I got my first shipment last week (but I got the white t-shirt instead of tank) and I absolutely hate the underwear! I have a small booty and half of my cheeks were hanging out of the undies and the crotch is very narrow so they fit kinda like a thong. Wonder if mine were cut wrong since you said you have full coverage. They are extremely soft though.

    • That definitely could be! It is hard to find seamless undies that fit comfortably.
