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.

May’s Subscription set

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 April 2021

I love the double bag for the Underclub

This is rapidly becoming one of my favorite subscriptions. The Underclub is a monthly luxury underwear subscription service. While they have multiple tiers, some with more than one set of underwear, I went for the $15 per month option. It is exactly $15 no tax or shipping added. For this price I receive one pair of undies each month. It ships on the first and charges on the 11th. I actually received April’s pair on Thursday April 8th (there was a shipping delay adding two days to delivery) and I was charged for May’s set on April 11th.

I initially chose this subscription service to try for three reasons. The first is that I really like subscriptions. I really do like the surprise package in the mail and the ability to try new things.

The second reason was that I wanted to try some subscriptions that weren’t makeup and skincare based. I am trying to branch out more into lifestyle and clothing subscriptions.

Plus, one thing people don’t tell you when you start working out is that no matter what underwear you are wearing, it is going to take a beating. I generally pick up packs of Hanes Cotton Undies for workout wear but I like to have nice underwear when I am not working out and in my initial workout phase, I didn’t realize I needed to switch out my undies like I switch out my regular bra for a sports bra so a lot of my nicer underwear didn’t survive. So it is nice to build up my collection again.

And thirdly, when I went looking for sizes, the Underclub was very size inclusive. They not only had a size that fit me, they had models that weren’t Victoria Secret Standard. They were all beautiful women but they were also real women. I know that I do not look like a Victoria Secret model in my underwear. I know that even if I get my body down to a healthy weight I will not look like that. Which is perfectly fine. How boring would the world be if we all looked alike? I like that The Underclub recognizes that and markets for real world bodies.

Waist detail

I also like the quality and styling of the undergarments as well. This month’s set of pants was quite lovely. On the surface they look like plain black undies. They are made of a kind of net material. The front has an inner liner, the back does not. The Brand is MOD by Parfait which we have seen before.

This set, like every set I’ve received fit perfectly. So if you are looking for your size, follow the size chart. I measured myself, took my inch measurement to their chart and have not had an issue with fit. It is a spot on size chart, which is really nice when trying to find your size. And while I am on the heavy end of the spectrum, they do have extra small for those of you on the other side. They have a pretty wide array of sizes which is again one of the reasons I chose to try out the subscription in the first place.

With this month’s set, I was very impressed by the quality of the elastic around the waist band. I know that sounds very strange to say, but most of the underwear I’ve received thus far has less of a stout waistband, The thinner waistband suited the style and the elastic was thinner because of design. This pair has a thicker waistband and a correspondingly thicker elastic. The elastic doesn’t constrict too tightly and you can tell it is the sort of elastic that will last a while. It is an oddly difficult balance to find. The elastic fit properly and didn’t leave marks on my skin.

As with all the underwear, it went straight from the packaging to the washer and then I tried it on. There were no loose strings or missed stitches wither before or after washing. The garment was well constructed. Like I said before it fit perfectly.

My one issue was that there was not a liner on the rear as there was for the front. I understand the styling and looking at it, I really like the way it looks. However, I did wear them sitting at the desk while working on the computer and ended up with a net print across my rear end. It wasn’t in any way uncomfortable, just oddly textured skin when i stripped down for my shower. I was momentarily puzzled, then realized it wa from the pants.

Over all I am very pleased with this pair and happy to keep the subscription another month. I am still wearing the Valentine’s bralette and pants set. They have been in rotation since February and they are holding up quite well even though it is more delicate looking than untehr sets. It looks just as good now as it did when it arrived. I really like the bralette, I just have to remember it is in no way designed for exercise and change accordingly. It does fit well though and looks great when working at my desk or generally moving around. It just doesn’t have the support i need for workouts (which isn’t surprising as it isn’t a sports bra). I still have my eye on the minty green pajama set (pictured above) and now they have a Birthday three pack available. In fact each month they seem to come out with a new set in a different style and the list of ones I want just keeps getting longer.

While I am drawn to the mint green Pajama set mostly because I am starting to transition from my winter pajamas into more summer themed sleepwear, I also like the bra and pants in the same material and style. I’m actually torn as to which one I want to order as they both look really nice. Soon I will start inventorying my spring and summer clothing so it may end up being a decision made on what survives the purge. I have some spring and summer clothing that is now a little large on me and some that is just worn out from seeing too many summers. So I may make the decision after, but seriously how cool is that set? I think I may have said the same thing last month but it still remains true. I just really like the color and design of it. And if you are just looking for undies, they have great bundles as well as individual sets. I’ll link the birthday link below.

Personally, the more I receive from this subscription the more I like it. They are size inclusive and don’t make me feel badly about myself because I don’t fit a certain mold. They recognize that everyone deserves to feel pretty, which I love. If I am wearing pretty underwear, even if no one knows it, I feel pretty all the way through, which I’m sure reflects in my attitude and self confidence. while pretty underwear doesn’t fix everything it is often a great personal boost.

I like that they are always coming out with new designs and that every piece i’ve had from them is a quality piece. Plus it is a really good monthly surprise. Overall I just really like this subscription service. If you are looking to expand your underwear collection, this is definitely one I would recommend looking into. I for one will be keeping this one for a while.

Birthday Gift 3-Pack

March 2021 UnderClub Unboxing

I love pretty underwear. There is no getting around it. Pretty underwear makes me feel special when I put it on. Of course it doesn’t have to be sexy underwear, it can be cute cotton as long as it makes me feel special.As my weight increased, the designs became less cute though. In fact it became down right depressing and my underwear shopping started to imly lean into the functional.

Which is just plain sad.

Don’t get me wrong, functional is important. But so is how you feel wearing it. And anyone who has read my posts for any length of time knows that I also love subscription boxes. For a while I concentrated mostly on the beauty products, because skin care doesn’t care about your dress size. It just works to make the skin you are wearing be the best it can.

Recently I started branching out (don’t get me wrong, I still love my skin care) and trying other things. While I am still slimming down for health reasons, I am still not tiny (and don’t ever really plan to be) This made underwear subscriptions somewhat problematic. To be quite blunt, I was a little past their size charts. Then I found that Underclub had a more inclusive size range and signed up to try it out. This is my third month with them and I absolutely love them thus far.

This month is an adorable blue pair that is basically a polka dotted mesh. The see through nature of it is why I am not modeling them for you and why they are on my desk instead I love you all my darlings, but there is a limit to what I am willing to photograph. They are bikini cut. and fit really well. I tried them on after washing them ( I always wash my garments before wearing them, even though this is double packaged. It is a habit.) Washing them first also lets me see if any strings will pull loose or if any stitching is off. There were no issues. They are well constructed with no loose strings.

The set also came with a scratch off card. You scratch it off and get a discount, mine ended up being for $5 off. I think it is a cute idea for a lucky st. Patrick’s day add on.

The brand for this pair is Toast, which has shown up before in this subscription. I am still wearing the first pair and they are showing very little signs of wear so I have high hopes for this pair. They are mesh and see through. I tend to favor cotton during the day and this sort of thing after my post workout shower. The cost for the tier that I am in with this subscription is $15 per month. I have to say each month I have definitely gotten my money’s worth. Like I said this is the third monthly subscription. I also have a set including a bralette and undies that was designed for valentines day. I am still enjoying that as well. The bralette is not a supportive garment, but it is not meant to be. It is great for working at the desk, not so much for going on a walk. Just remember to change to a sports bra before working out and you are good. To be honest I kind of like that. My workouts beat up my undergarments something fierce, especially in the summertime and having to change out of the bralette before working out also reminds me to change out of the noce undies too. By changing them I get to keep the nice underwear longer.

In case you are wondering, my workout underwear comes from Hanes. (the link will take you to the set I purchase, and repurchase for workout wear.) I can buy a pack relatively inexpensively and then just wear them until they can’t take it anymore. As they are good quality, that does take a while, but quality or not, salty sweat is not a friend to cloth. I did find out that I might actually be in the size range for the MeUndies subscription service which features cotton undies, so I might be checking that out soon.

For now I really like the pretty undergarments from underclub. Because of the material and the styling I feel special putting them on and because I tend to put them on after my post workout shower, it feels like a little reward. “I did my sweating and now I get to put on something pretty”. I am all about the small rewards to keep myself on track with my weight loss journey. Pretty underwear is a pretty good reward in my book. And more importantly it isn’t a reward tied to the scale. Putting it on is just a reward for showing up and getting the workout done. If you are interested in this subscription, right now they have a deal going on where you can get a free bralette when you sign up.

Which is not a bad deal all in all. They also have some really delightful sets in their shop. Some are packs of undies to last a whole week and others are individual sets, all are very pretty. They also have an adorable satin sleepwear set that I keep making passes back to the site so study. It is very much on my list to purchase. I’ll Link the image below.

Underclub X Power 2 The Flower Mint  Satin 5-Piece Collection

There are several I have my eye on at the moment but that is probably at the top of the list. Seriously how pretty is that? Their store is fun to check out, and clearly I like to frequently stop by to see their new additions. In the past three months they have been putting up between 1-3 new sets a month. I don’t know if that is typical or if there was a Valentine’s day extravaganza, but they do release new sets fairly regularly. Personally, I like seeing what is available and knowing that because of their size inclusiveness, any set I choose will actually fit me. That makes me feel just as good as pulling on a new pair of undies every month.
