Unboxing The Underclub May 2021

It has arrived!  My subscription from The Underclub is here!  I love that it is the first subscription to arrive each month as it never disappoints and always makes me happy.  In case you haven’t guessed from the name, The Underclub is a monthly luxury underwear subscription service.  There are several different tiers and some have one pair sent to you and others two.  My tier is the one pair for $15 per month one.  I have never once regretted signing up.  While some of the underwear I would not have chosen specifically for myself, I always absolutely love them.They always have a sign up deal going on as well. I’ll post the link if you are interested.

They are always releasing new sets and package deals like the seven day bundle.  The recent release of the Zodiac elemental sets are really hard to resist.  Since I was born at the end of June I am  a Water sign and the underwear and eyelash lace tank that goes with the Water are really calling to me. I just love that shade of blue. I couldn’t find a good picture of it, but all of their zodiac sign themed undie sets look amazing. All the links in the post will take you to their homepage if you want to check out the zodiac (or any other) collection. I really think they were well designed.

I also love that they are very size inclusive.  There have been a lot of sites where I’ve seen something I liked and found out they just didn’t carry it in my size or if they did it was a lot more expensive than it would be for a smaller size.  The Underclub store has all their sizes at the same price and I am included in their size range.  Pretty underwear is one of my personal pleasures.  I really do like pretty undergarments.  It has become an additional daily treat as I wear the plane cotton Hanes underwear to the gym and then only put on the delicate lacy things after my post work out shower.  So it is an extra little incentive.

‘If you do the workout like you scheduled you can wear the pretty undies after.’

Somedays, I confess, I need the extra incentive.  Especially if it is raining and I don’t want to drive across town to the gym. 

Lace detail

But that is another story, we are here to talk about this month’s Underclub selection. 

And it is a nice one.  It is soft dusty pink lace in a boy short cut. I love the scalloped edging.  The las is soft against the skin and not scratchy.  As always I looked for any loose threads or missed stitches before I washed them and found none.  They are very good quality.  And even though they did come sealed in their own little bag inside a bag. I washed them before trying them on.  I also looked them over as they came out of the wash and found that nothing came loose in the wash either. 

On the small bag that the undies came in they are labeled Viola HW Cheeky in Rose Cloud.  And they do feel cloud soft against the skin. 

I am especially pleased with these because they are actually the Underclub brand of undies. Each month prior I’ve gotten a different brand, but I have never received a pair from the in house brand.  I was curious as to the quality of the actual Underclub brand of underwear.  I am not disappointed. 

I will get a lot of use out of these and quite frankly, they were the perfect reward for talking myself into doing an extra set of arm workouts today. I know my arms will be sore, but I still get to wear the pretty, pretty lace which makes me feel better about the sore arms. Way to go Underclub! This was a fabulous start to the May Subscriptions.

The Underclub X Toast Cyndi Mesh and Lace Bralette Set Review

This weekend I received a very nice surprise as The Underclub very nicely gifted me the Underclub X Toast Cyndi Mesh and Lace Bralette Set. This set was released for Valentine’s day (retails for $49) and it arrived on February 13th, just in time for me to wash it and have it ready for Valentines day. I love that the pieces were individually sealed in plastic, just like the regular Underclub Subscription.

Birthday Gift 3-Pack
We love gifting – we want to help you love it too! This 3-pack featuring a surprise mix of different styles is sure to make that special someone’s big day.
Available in sizes XS-4X

Although this set is pretty enough that it’s wear is not going to be confined to one day a year.

I am a member of The Underclub which is a monthly Luxury Underwear subscription service. There are several tiers and the one I belong to is the $15 per month tier where I get one pair of undies sent to me each month. Thus far I am absolutely loving the subscription. The underwear is lovely and quality made. Plus, they are all different brands so I get to ty different styles as well as companies each month.

Plus I can’t lie, I really get excited by new underwear. And the fact that The Underclub has underwear in my size just makes me so happy. All of the other subscriptions I looked at I didn’t quite fit. I was just out of their size chart’s range. The Underclub size chart has a wider range, both larger and smaller, so I was able to indulge myself in an underwear subscription without waiting until I was a “more fitting” size.

While I do love their underwear, I had not yet tried out their bralettes and I was curious. In fact, I don’t think I have ever worn anything that could be called a bralette. I know shocking reveal. But to be honest I have always been hesitant to pick one up, mostly because of the way they are sized. I see Small, Medium and Large on bras and quite frankly I want a little more detail, which is why in stores I generally pass them by.

Currently my bra size is 42D in case you are wondering. And while that is partially due to my weight (current weight 218), when I weighed 115 my bra was a 38C. So I was never really a small. Also once you get into C and D range stores like to make your bras look very basic. It is getting better, but there are always so many really pretty bras in the smaller sizes that aren’t always replicated in the larger ones. And there are a wide array of really pretty bralettes.

I’ll admit, I was perusing the bralette section of the Underclub store and wondering about picking one to try out. Which made the arrival of the gifted set so absolutely fabulous it made me giddy.

So let’s look at the set, shall we?

It is a bralette and underwear set from the brand Toast. I’ve never heard of them before, but I have to say if all of their underwear is like this, I will be looking for the label next time I order. The garments are well constructed with no pulled threads or missed stitching. The detail work is quite lovely. The elastic on both the underwear and bralette is covered by satin ribbon which is a nice touch. There is an extra loop in the underwear to go around your waist. It looks a little odd when the pair is sitting out, and I was worried it would be too tight when I put it on, but it is not. It is a very comfortable pair of underwear to wear. The set’s design features red mesh and light pink lace inserts.

The design of the lace is scalloped so that it almost looks feathered. I found it to be quite lovely. The underwear is very comfortable as well as pretty. I was surprised to find the bralette was as well. It has the same adjustable back strap that a regular bra has which really helped with comfort. I think one of the issues I’ve always had concerns about with bralettes is that they mostly seemed designed like tank tops with no adjustment possible.

Not the greatest picture of me but the first one I’ve ever taken of me in my undies.

I love that this had that adjustability. The bralette sent is an XL and it fits really well. It isn’t one that I would do any exercising in as it is not designed to be terribly supportive, but it is comfortable to wear in non-workout scenarios. I actually wore it all day yesterday (Valentine’s day) and had no problems whatsoever. It is just as nice to wear as it is to look at, just don’t go jogging in it.

I have to say I am impressed with all of the little details as well. The crossed ribbons at the cleavage, the extra lace along the strap at the back. It is a well thought out design for both the bralette and the underwear and I am happy that i get to wear the set. It also made me realize I don’t have all that many matching sets anymore and that I really like having a few around. I generally start out with matching sets but along the way one or the other will be lost and leave the drawer while the other sticks around and I end up with single items rather than sets. So clearly it is time to order a few new sets.

Knowing that I now can wear bralettes (and what size) I may have to look at ordering a few more sets of those as well as regular bras. The Underclub has quite the selection on their site. Despite Valentine’s day being passed, this Underclub X Toast Cyndi Mesh and Lace Bralette set is still available (and really, why limit pretty underwear just to one day of the year?) I’m not sure which holidays they favor with new releases, but I for one will be keeping my eye out for new launches as well as perusing the large selection already available on the site. There is just something about pretty underwear that just makes me feel pretty all the way down to my skin. Even if i am the only one who sees it, and sometimes especially if I am the only one who sees it, I just find it delightful to wear pretty underwear. I will be keeping this subscription for a long time to come and will no doubt be picking up more sets from the Underclub store.


Underclub February 2021 Unboxing

Just in time for Valentine’s day

I think the Underclub is very quickly becoming one of my favorite subscriptions.  For those that don’t know Underclub is an underwear subscription.  They have several options in their subscriptions depending on if you want one set each month or two and if you want their regular subscription or their premium one.  I am in the regular subscription and I receive one item each month.  My subscription price is $15 per month and the underwear is mailed out at the first of the month. 

I love the double bagging of the product

This is my second month of this subscription.  The first month was a lovely black set of underwear that had a subtle detail.  While I was impressed with the quality of the undergarment when it arrived, I have now washed and worn it several times and I have to say the quality still remains.  There are no loose strings or coming apart at the seams. I was very impressed.

So how does my second month stack up to the first?

Very well actually.  This month I received a pair called Celeste from Peche.  When I looked the company up, and managed to convince the computer that I did not in fact mean peach, I found the company offered a pair almost identical to the set I received (different color) for $30. Which is of course double what I paid in my subscription.

package rumpled pre washing

Before I wear any new underwear, I wash them.  I know they come sealed not only in the outer packaging, but inside an inner plastic package as well, but I still always wash underwear before putting them on.  Before washing these looked very nice, if a bit rumbled from shipping. 

There were no loose strings, all the seams were straight and correct and there was no damage to the underwear.  I know that sounds like a lot of inspection, but I wanted to make certain they were in good condition before they went into the wash.

lace and stitching detail

Both the material of the garment, as well as the lace decoration are soft material that will wear well against the skin.  According to the label the body of the underwear is 76% nylon and 24 % spandex and the lace is 82 % nylon and 18% spandex. It is also a lovely lavender color. (The camera tended to wash it out to a pale pink, but id you look in the top photo you can see it is lavender).

I was actually pleasantly surprised actually.  Usually I expect everything in February to be geared towards pinks and reds.  The pastel lavender was a very pleasant surprise.  Not that I don’t like pinks and reds, but it was nice to see something different. Although they do have valentine’s day packs avaialble.

When looking in the member store I spotted the celeste in both the Curvy Weekender Three Pack and in the Best Week Ever Seven Pack. Both sets looked really nice actually. One of the reasons that I chose this underwear subscription out of the multitude of underwear subscriptions available is because of the size selection.  For many of the subscriptions I was simply just not within their size range.  For the Underclub I looked at their size chart, realized I fit into it and joined.  I still expected the underwear to end up being cut a little small, but it is not.  Both last month and this month fit perfectly. 

For me if I know I am wearing pretty underwear I feel pretty all day.  In fact, underwear and perfume are the only two things that can do that for me. If those two items make me feel good then it doesn’t matter if the wind swirled through my hair and the wings of my eyeliner are lopsided, I feel pretty. 

Given that I love subscriptions, an underwear subscription is a no brainer. I had ‘an underwear subscription’ on my list of rewards for weight loss from the very beginning, figuring that at some point I would lose enough weight to be in range for one of the subscriptions and then I could feel pretty on a monthly basis.

I love the fact that Underclub’s sizing lets me do that now.  I may be losing weight for my health, but I like feeling good about myself at whatever weight I am.  I shouldn’t have to be thin to enjoy either my body or pretty underwear and I love that Underclub’s front page tag line: Designer Underwear for Every Body, Every Month, makes me feel included instead of like an afterthought. I also love that the women modeling the underwear also come in a variety of sizes as well and don’t all fit into the ‘standard underwear model’ category of woman.

A good pair of underwear makes me feel pretty, being included instead of feeling like an afterthought makes it feel fun. Add in the fact that I like the underwear I’ve received, and I can see myself keeping this subscription for a long time to come. Personally, I can’t wait to see what they send my way next month.
