Unboxing The UnderClub March 2022

Ah the beginning of the month and the arrival of one of my favorite subscription boxes. Or bags I suppose as the Underclub subscription arrives in a discrete plastic mailer. I love this subscription for many reasons. One is that pretty underwear makes me feel more confident. I now it is silly but if I am wearing pretty underwear, even if i am the only one who knows it, I feel more confident. I always have.

The second reason I love The Underclub is it’s size inclusivity. All of their garments are offered in the full size range. There is no going to their on line story and being shunted off to a small corner of the website for the few items they have in your size. From XS to 3X they have you covered. Its a small thing, but being able to shop in the store instead of being relegated to a small corner of the website just makes me very happy.

I love the extra interior bag for the undies

I have also been impressed with the quality and this month is no exception. This month there is a pair of bikini briefs (mostly see through which is why I am not wearing them in the photos. I like that it is green for St. Patrick’s day but a more subdued green. It is not only a little more sophisticated a color but it is something I would wear all year round. as always I inspected the garment for loose stitches and found none. Then I sent it through the wash, inspected again and then tried them on. They fit beautifully and have great subtle details. The slight material overlap at the hip bone, the slight variation in the lines on the material. It is a simple bikini brief but someone clearly took the time to think about the details.

And they fit comfortably. For those who routinely read you may recall I lost enough weight that I had to adjust my sizing. It was a quick few clicks on my account page and it was done. No muss, no fuss. And I have always found their sizing to be spot on with measurements

details make the garment

. There is no running small or lager, The measurements are accurate. Which I personally love. I’ve had this subscription for over a year now and I can tell you, this is not a subscription that is going anywhere. I expect to keep it for a long time.

The Underclub arrives for January 2022

That’s right the first of the January subscriptions has arrived. And no surprise it is the Underclub. This month they actually mailed the subscription early to make up for postal delays. That’s right, I received an e-mail notification and tracking number December 28th. Oh yeah, they saw the swamped post offices and the upcoming New Year’s Holiday and mailed out their subscription a couple of days early to make up for it.

Is it any wonder they are one of my favorite subscriptions?

well that and their size inclusivity and great underwear. I will say that this month’s selection does not photograph well. Which is a shame. As always when I receive my selection, I look it over to check the quality. As always The Underclub passed with no loose strings and no missed stitches. I know, to some that sounds bizarre, but it is part of how my grandmother taught me to shop for clothing. Any garment, from undies to winter wear parkas, had to have the stitching studied before a purchase decision could be made.

I still find myself unable to stop myself from checking the stitching on ever garment that comes into my house. The Underclub passed and went off to the wash before it could be worn. Because again, as per grandmother’s edict, no clothing can be worn until it has first been washed. I once asked her why. Her eyebrows (plucked to thin little arches and mostly the product of an eyebrow pencil) shot up to her hairline and her eyes went wide.

“Things happen in factories.”

To this day I am uncertain what unspeakable evil she thinks goes on in the packaging department, but I wash my clothes before wearing them, just in case.

the band is slightly darker than the rest of the material.

Not that I suspect The Underclub of unspeakable evil. Quite the contrary. I think they are quite fabulous. This months selection (from the $15 per month category of their subscription service) looks very plain in the photograph. It is simple black material with a silkier black edging on the outer edges. Nothing very earth shattering. However once on, they fit perfectly and are perhaps the most comfortable set of undies I have put on in a long time.

Perfect fit, fantastic comfort.

I recently changed the size of my monthly selection as I lost enough weight to go down a size. (The changing of the sizes was super easy. Two clicks on the account page and I was done. Also their size guide has always been spot on for me.) And these fit me absolutely perfectly. They may not be the fanciest set in the drawer, but I am thrilled to have them. They look nice on, they have a classic appeal with no frills. I like the look of the black on black design actually. It is a subtle, understated difference that appeals to me. But it is the comfort that has this month’s Underclub selection doing a lap in the winner’s circle. This is a set I will truly enjoy wearing for a long time to come.

The Underclub November 2021 Unboxing

That’s right my darlings, it is time for the unboxing of one of my favorite subscriptions. I have to say i am very surprised this month. The Underclub charges for it’s subscriptions on the 11th of the month and generally ships out on the first. Even with all of the insanity that is the postal service at the moment, the arrival of the subscription has not really changed. Generally it arrives around the seventh of the month.

And in case you are wondering, I do keep a chart of my subscriptions. I record the cost, when it charges, when it ships, when it arrives and how long I have a commitment to the subscription (i.e. month to month, three month, six month, a year). I also make notes about why and when I cancel things in case I go back later. I know it sounds a bit extra, but it really keeps me from forgetting what charges are going to hit my bank when. And once set up it is not much effort to update as the year goes by. I’ll be setting up 2022’s chart in December once I decide what subscriptions are following me into the new year.

The plain black mailer (addy on other side)

But details, aside, it means that I know The Underclub subscription has arrived at the same time each month regardless of outside forces. Interestingly enough though, around the fifteenth of October I received a message from the Underclub saying they were working on shipping delays and actually working to get ahead of them. So I expected that I would be getting November’s subscription a little late. while they have been spot on with their shipping and arrivals, they have gotten a bit random with their e-mail notification of tracking info.

In fact I haven’t gotten a shipping message this month. I did get my subscription package though, right on time, on the seventh as always. It did come in a different mailer though. This month instead of the pinkish mailer emblazoned with the word Underclub, it came in a slightly smaller black plastic mailer. Underclub was still on the shipping label, but not the mailer itself. Personally I am fine with it. And if they need to switch up mailers to keep getting the subscription to me on time, I am perfectly comfortable with that.

I am actually relieved that the shipping is still on point for the brand as i just took a peek at their holiday sets and want to place an order. I have every confidence I can do so and have it arrive in a timely fashion. (And since I actually want the set as part of my New Year’s planning, I have some time.) And the sets are adorable. As always the trick for me is not finding one I want but narrowing it down because they have so many I want.

in person they are lavender and not pink, the camera wased the color out.

It is a wonderful feeling to have. The brand is size inclusive so not only does their subscription have a wide range to choose from, but in their store, everything has the same wide range. There is no perusing of their offerings, finding one you like and then finding it does not come in your size. Everything comes in that wide range of sizes. I know I’ve said it before and will probably say it again, but i love going on the site and looking around knowing that I don’t have to find the small section of plus sized items lurking somewhere other than the home page.

That just makes me feel good. And really, you should feel good when shopping for underwear.

But we are here to look at this month’s subscription. And it is really pretty this month. I know the camera washed the color out a bit, but it is a lovely lavender with a soft lace front and a solid lavender back. I love the scalloped detail at the top of the waist. It just really makes the set.

Oddly, I am extra excited for this set because we have seen the design appear in the subscription before. I received a pair exactly like this in black about eight months ago. It was very comfortable to wear, the lace soft against the skin. It also wore very well. After eight months in rotation it still looks as good as it did when it arrived. It is actually one of my favorite pairs actually. It has only one issue.

Size.

Lace detail

Recently I actually lost enough weight that I had to go onto the Underclub site and alter my subscription going from a 3X to a 2X. Mostly because I noticed my underwear getting a little loose. I went down a size and now each set I receive once again fits me perfectly. Unfortunately it means that the lovely pair of black undies in this style is now a little on the loose side. So I am thrilled to have the same style in lavender. I think that because they changed the color, I don’t have an issue with the repeat style. Part of that is because it is a lovely looking style that is super comfy to wear and part of that is that I am moving to a point where I can’t actually wear the other pair.

But even with those asides, I am okay with the repeat style since it is in a different color. It is also the only style repeat I have ever had from them. I wouldn’t want to see a trend, but I am okay with it this time. Plus it really is an easy to wear style. I am as always, happy with my subscription. It is one I don’t even have to think about when planning my subscriptions for the new year. This one is definitely going with me into 2022. While I highly recommend this subscription for anyone looking to grow their underwear collection, r just try something new and surprising, I also recommend the store. They have way more than just underwear in their collection. In addition to underwear and bralettes (as well as sets) they have camisoles and lovely pajama sets. Everything I have ever had from them has been of excellent quality and wears quite well in addition to looking pretty. And truthfully, if you have ever had issues with websites not having a lot of items in your size, it is just a fun site to flip through. There is something utterly delightful in looking through a website and just knowing that if you decide you like something, it will be available in your size. It is just a fantastic feeling and one I think everyone should have the pleasure of indulging in.

Unboxing The Underclub for October 2021

Okay today is a very special unboxing. Or technically unbagging, since my Underclub subscription always arrives in a slim mailer. You know I love the Underclub. For those who don’t know it is an underwear subscription. For $15 you receive a pair of underwear each month. They are always high quality and wear well.

In general I love this subscription because I always feel pretty if I am wearing pretty undies. It doesn’t matter what else is going on. My mascara can be smeared and my hair standing up at crazy angles, but as long as I have pretty underwear on, I feel pretty. So I always love getting a new pair.

I also love that they are size inclusive and their sizes range from XS to 4X. And that in their store every item comes in that size range. There is no wondering if the item you like is actually made for your size. It is. Always. Every item. Not just some small section of the store where there are fewer options.

I find this fabulous.

This month my Underclub subscription came with an extra card. In addition to the card they send each month reminding me that I am fabulous (which quite honestly sometimes just really makes my day) There was another card.

Tops Off with Underclub. The card is for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and comes with an astonishing quote from Johns Hopkins Medical Center. While you may or may not be able to read it on the photo, I’ll list it out again here. “40% of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump.”

40%

So check yourself ladies. Its a good reminder for us all.

On the back of the card is a set of helpful drawings to show you some things you need to look out for. Also for every instagram tagged with the The Underclub will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

However now it is on to the October selection. And here I have something fabulous as well. Last month my selection was slightly too large for me. It was, actually not the subscriptions fault. I actually lost enough weight that I wend down a size in my underwear. So I popped onto the site, logged into my account and with a few clicks changed the sizing. So this month’s pair is one size lower and I am happy to report, it fits perfectly.

Of course I didn’t wear them right away. I took them out of the package, inspected them for loose strings and missed stitches (I found none) and then I sent them through the wash. Once washed and dried, I looked them over again before trying them on.

They fit perfectly and are quite comfy. This pair is called The London Hipster in Porcelain. It is a light pink and while the crotch has a cotton lining, the rest of the set is a net fabric. The front has an almost transparent liner between your body and the net fabric, the rear does not. While I like them. I kind of wish the transparent material was over the back as well. I have another pair of undies in this fabric, Also from the brand MOD like these.

While they are super comfy if I wear them at the desk all day when I take them off to get in the shower at night, my behind is somewhat textured from the netting. This took me aback the first time I wore them sitting in a chair all day. I didn’t feel the netting all day so I wasn’t expecting it. I just would like the liner on the rear as well.

Otherwise, I really like this pair. They have a cute edging around the waistband and they fit exactly as I like underwear to fit. I love that changing the size was so easy and I am especially tickled that the smaller size fits me perfectly. That fact is going to keep me smiling for the rest of the day.

The Underclub August 2021 Unboxing

It has arrived! My August subscription from The Underclub. I always get so excited when I see the little package in the mail. I’ll admit, it is a plain and unassuming little package, but it does always make me smile. For those that don’t know, The Underclub is an underwear subscription. While they have different tiers, the one I receive is for $15 per month and for this price they sent me one pair of undies a month.

I have never been disappointed by the quality of the underwear. You can choose styles and preferences of color. And with each pair they send you a link to review the pair you received. I love that when you get the link and check it, the review you write is just from you to them. There are a few multiple choice bits about how you feel about the selection, but then you get to tell them how the item fits and what you like or don’t like as well as what you would like to see in the future.

Then of course if you want to do a more public review they have a button you can click. And if you do choose to leave a review, before they post it someone will e-mail you to check to make certain that you indeed wanted to post the review.

I know it sounds a little odd, but I really like the fact that you can just talk to them about your underwear and what works separately from the published review.

I also like that they are very size inclusive. I may be on the upper end of the scale but they go from 3X down to an XS. They cover a wide range of bodies and all categories are charged the same price. I know that is a small thing, but more than the money, being charged more for larger garments always makes me feel really judged. And then I either feel sad or defensive. There is none of that here.

And of course they sell more than just underpants. They also sell bralettes and sleep cammies with shorts. They have a really good range of products and more coming out every month it seems. I love going on there and browsing their collections. I also like knowing that everything they sell is going to come in my size. I won’t find something I like and then learn they don’t make it in my size. I also won’t be shunted off to a small corner of their on-line store where their plus sized collection lives.

But as much as i like the brand and store, this is about the August Subscription. So as always the package came with a relatively unobtrusive little package and inside the mailer was a separate bag holding the pants (which I really like, even if the outer bag is secure). Along with the bagged pants is a card which reads…

In case you forgot to remind yourself this morning…Your butt is perfect. Your smile lights up the room. Your mind is insanely cool. You are way more than enough. And you are doing an amazing job at life.

Its a little thing, but I really like the little personal affirmation. Sometimes I keep the cards as bookmarks or randomly tuck them into things like planners and drawers so I come upon them unexpectedly as a little pleasant reminder. It makes me happy.

This month’s selection is also a very happy pair of pants. They may actually be the brightest pair I own. Even the lovely valentines set, was slightly less bright. This set is called the Maria Keyhole Bikini in Fuchsia and retails for $24. The name of course comes from the keyhole detail in the back, which I think looks really cute. The pink and orange combo took me a bit by surprise. It is a much louder pair of pants than I usually wear.

keyhole detail

I have to say though, I kind of like it. Upon receiving them, I inspected them for loose threads or missed stitches. I found none. I put them in the wash with my other undies and when they came out, there were no additional loose strings. As all of the selections I have received from them have been well crafted, I am not surprised, but I still check.

I have to admit, I really liked wearing the electric colored pants under sober looking business attire when I had to attend a meeting. I don’t know why that gives me an extra little smile to think about but it does. Maybe because the company I was meeting with was very conservative in appearance.

But then again, I just like knowing I am wearing pretty underwear when I go places. It’s sort of like battle armor. If my underwear is pretty, I feel pretty. If I feel pretty, then I am more confident. I think it is also why I don’t like companies that restrict their sizes. It is almost like they are saying that if you don’t fit their specifications then you don’t deserve to feel confident. Which is a load of crap. Everyone deserves to feel confident. And for me, pretty underwear is always a good confidence boost. As electric as this set is, I am happy to add it to my collection. What a great way to start off the month, Thanks Underclub.

Unboxing the July 2021 Underclub Subscription

That’s right my darlings my July Underclub subscription has arrived. It is always the first of the monthly subscriptions to reach me and personally I love the kick off it gives to the month. I have always been a fan of pretty underwear. No matter what else I am wearing or what else I am doing, it makes me feel pretty when I wear nice undergarments and that in turn makes me feel more confident.

As you know I love subscriptions of all varieties and I looked into a bunch of Underwear subscriptions. The underclub was the most size inclusive. It has sizes running from extra small to triple X and has a wide variety of styles. I have never been disappointed in the quality. While there are several subscription tiers to choose from the one I subscribe to is the $15 per month level. There is no tax or shipping, it is a straight $15 fee and for this I receive one pair per month.

Inner package

This month was a pair of soft pink boy shorts. As always they come in a discrete pink mailer and inside have a second plastic bag containing the underwear. I really like the thought of my underwear being twice bagged. I still wash it before wearing it the first time, but I like the double bagging nonetheless. I always check the garment for loose strings or missed stitches both before and afte wearing and I have to say, I haven’t found a single one yet.

In addition the pairs from previous months are still wearing well. While I like adding underwear to my collection, one pair a month is about all I need to feel special but not feel overwhelmed. This soft pink pair is a nice color and a great fit. it is plain this month with only an understated ‘Underclub’ stitched into the waistband. As the last few months have been on the lacy side, I am happy to have a pair that looks a little more sporty. I am certain I will get a lot of use out of them.

July’s selection just out of the packaging

Once again, I am pleased with the month’s selection and thrilled to maintain my subscription. I also love that my subscription gives me a members discount in The Underclub store. There they sell not only the individual underpants, but they sell multiple packs, bralettes, sets and even a some shorts and cami sets.

band detail

I have a set with the bralette and matching underpants and the bralette is just as good a quality and wears just as well. And they are as size inclusive with everything on their site. There is no wondering if a particular item comes in your size as everything comes in a wide variety of sizes. If you aren’t a ‘perfect’ size – not that perfect actually exists, but you know what I mean – you can still shop in their main store without being shunted off to a small corner with fewer options.

It is one of the things that brings me back to the site time and time again, even just to window shop. It makes me feel good to know that every option I see, is an option I can order. They add new items to their story just about every month. The current new item is Eco lace, Lace made from recycled fibers. They look quite amazing, and if I can get an amazing pair of underwear and feel good about it on several levels, even better. when you go on the site they usually have a monthly code offer for a special they are running. I believe this month uses the code FREEBRA.

LIMITED TIME ONLY!
Add a FREE bralette to any new subscription with code FREEBRA

They tend to rotate the codes and offers as supplies rise and fall so double check the code at the top of the screen if you log in to see their current offer. And don’t forget to look into their store. They’re summer collection is really lovely.

The Underclub June 2021 Unboxing

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. 

Limited Edition- Undervention Box ($275 of intimates, yours at $175)

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.

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.

use code “SWEETDREAMS” with any 6 or 12 month Gift or Prepay Subscription and get a FREE UC Eyemask + Bag!

And then there is the store.

Underwear Packs discounted 20% off, just use the code PACK20

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.

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.


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.
