The first of the June Subscriptions has arrived. I love that The Underclub is always the first subscription to come in each month, at least for me. It always feels like a little something fabulous to get the month started on a good note.
For those that don’t know, The Underclub is an underwear subscription. They have several tiers, I am in the single pair for $15 per month category. I felt that for me, one new pair of undies per month was just about perfect.
I actually chose this subscription for several reasons. The first is that I just flat out love pretty undergarments. I really do. And to be honest, my love of pretty underwear has nothing to do with anyone else. I have always felt that if I am wearing pretty undergarments I feel pretty. I has nothing to do with anyone else opinion or appealing to anyone else. It just makes me feel pretty and more self confident if I know I am wearing pretty underwear.
Silly? Maybe. But it doesn’t stop it from being true.
As I gained weight I found that undergarments became a little less cute and a little more utilitarian. Not that there weren’t attractive larger garments out there, I just didn’t seek them out. It was almost as though I felt because I didn’t look how I wanted to look I didn’t deserve the pretty underwear. And while it is not a good attitude to have, it is sadly an attitude that does have a lot of external reinforcement.
When I started on a healthier journey, more than weight loss and healthy diet and exercise, I had to get a healthy mind set and reexamine a lot of my behaviors and reflections. I knew that pretty underwear made me feel more self confident, yet when I looked in my underwear drawer there was not a lot of pretty going on.
So I decided to change that.
Since I love subscriptions I went looking for an underwear subscription and The Underclub is the most size inclusive of the subscriptions I looked at. The diversity appealed to me and I have to say thus far, the underwear has not disappointed.
The subscription comes in a light pink mailer and inside the undergarments are enclosed in a separate internal bag. While I still wash them before wearing them, I love that they are so contained. I know I generally tend to reduce waste, but this is one instance where I am fine with a little extra packaging.
Once opened, I have to say, I very much like the pair that came this month. They are a bikini cut (you can choose the cut of underwear you prefer from their list – I said anything but thong so mine varoes a bit). They are black satin with a lace front. The lace front has a lovely scalloped top edge instead of just a straight line of elastic which I think makes them look just a little more special. It is a really nice detail. The lace is super soft, which I love, because let’s face it no one wants scratchy lace on their underwear.
As always I found no loose strings or slipped stitches when I first inspected them. They went from the mailer into the wash and came out with no loose threads or stitches. And of course the creases from being folded in the packaging fell out in the wash so they looked even better.
As always, the fit was perfect.
They are beautiful and comfortable to wear.
I was very happy with the set I received. The quality is always there, the materials are always good and quite frankly I have never had any complaints with the product. They always mail out the subscription either the first or second of the month and then charge you for the upcoming month on the 11th. (so June 11th I will pay for July’s subscription).
The closest thing to an issue I have had with this subscription is they were late sending the e-mail with the tracking number. But this month that might just be because the post office was quick with the delivery. Usually my Subscription arrives around the 7th. This month, the subscription arrived on June 4th and the e-mail with the tracking number arrived in my inbox on the 5th.
Which quite frankly isn’t that big a deal.
Or even really a problem.
I really do enjoy this subscription and quite frankly I love the collection of underwear I am building. I am always delighted to reach into my underwear drawer and pull out one of the pairs I received from the Underclub. These are items that I can consistently reuse and honestly bring me joy for months after I receive them.
In addition to the subscriptions, they have a lovely on-line store that they are consistently adding to. Not only are they nice to look at, but I love the fact that every garment they have listed comes in my size. I know that doesn’t sound like a big deal but it kind of is. There are so many websites where I know my size for their items, however the items they produce in my size are extremely limited.
The Underclub has all of their items in their wide range of sizes from the extra small to the extra large and everything in between. So when I look for garments I am not shunted off to a small little section of the site and given a limited number of options. With The Underclub I can just go to their main site and look around knowing that if I fall in love with something they will have it in my size.
I absolutely love that.
I also like many of their items. I am still loving the pink and red valentine’s day set (underpants and bralette) and there are so many more that I love. In fact they recently came out with an elements collection that is absolutely stunning. They have several new sets for June. In addition to underwear they have several sleep wear sets. I am personally eying the Room Service Short Sleeve PJ set. In the summer time I like to sleep in sleep shorts and those look absolutely adorable. I suspect that I may be treating myself to an early Birthday present. My Birthday is at the end of June, but they have quite the Summer Sale going on right now. So it is a good time to stock up.
At the moment they also have the Limited Edition Undervention box which includes a selection of items worth $275 which members can purchase for $175. (non-members $218.75). The PJ set I want is actually a part of the box and I am trying to decide if I want to go ahead and just get the whole box. It is very tempting. I may have to look at the budget and see. But if you are looking to stock up on some great products, you might want to check out this limited edition before it is gone. Thus far everything I have gotten from them has been of excellent quality and has fit perfectly. I’m sure their limited editions will be just as fabulous.
For now, I am enjoying my June set and trying to decide between just the sleep set or the entire box. It’s time to spend a little bit of time with the calculator and budget to see what is possible, because you know, deep down, I want it all.
