In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I went looking for a little something to treat myself for all the hard work I have put into this semester thus far. I should preface that one of my favorite things to shop for is underwear, and I am addicted to online shopping, as I love receiving gifts in the mail. I happened tp find Bootay Bag and honestly, I'm really into this.
So what is Bootay Bag? Bootay Bag is an online subscription that sends two pairs of underwear to your door every month for 12$ (with free shipping). Their sizes range from XS to XL, and you have the option of receiving from 1 of 3 packages, "always thongs," "never thongs," or "mix it up." When I contacted Bootay Bag about a potential collaboration, they asked for my preference and I chose "mix it up" to be able to review a wider range of their products and I am very satisfied.
So what were my thoughts?
The items shipped in a grey plastic bag, once you opened that you see the packaging from the pictures above. Simple and so cute, its just a manila styled envelope with a sticker on the front that begged me to respond "thank goodness you're here." As a sucker for good packaging, I was already a little sold on the product. I also really love that each pair came attached with the size and Bootay Bag style number so you know you're never receiving the same product twice. I decided to rate the style and fit, comfort, and durability of each pair of underwear to determine whether or not Bootay Bag was worth the hype. My results? It is.
3Style and Fit: The red lace thong is my favorite of the two. It's perfect for February, and i love the little oomf of self love I had when I tried these on. The lace is good quality, not itchy, not scratchy, super soft and comfortable. I wore these rollerskating, and to work, (for a total of like 13 hours or so) and it literally felt like I wasn't wearing underwear at all. Imagine that feeling of comfort and then remembering you're wearing a pretty little lace thong that hugs you in just the right way? Incredible. The black no show panties were also very comfortable, and I will continue to wear those around the house like I did this weekend. The lace of the black underwear was also very comfortable and soft, overall I would say these are pretty great quality.
Something I do struggle with when ordering from new online companies is the sizing. I am always afraid that their small is too small or their 2 is like an 4. The sizing on these were perfect. I had heard these may run a little small but I didn't have that experience. Usually I buy thongs a size up to make sure they stay comfortable all day, in whatever I am doing. Both pairs of underwear fit great, and weren't too snug. They hugged my hips, but didn't suffocate me or more too much when I was being active. That's right ladies, not a single wedgie.
Durability: I decided to wash these together with my other clothes, just like I was everything else I own and the quality didn't seem to change after I washed them. Some of my underwear (especially the lace ones) will rip or like flake around the seems and with how delicate these felt, I was almost expecting that to happen, but it didn't. These are definitely durable (hello roller skating and then an 8 hour shift and they still came out good as new? Amazing. ) I have paid like 8$ for a pair of underwear and not had them last me very long. It's always so disappointing to find a product that you think is going to be great, especially when it's from a big on brand company, and it fails you. Here, I had the exact opposite experience. I was so pleased with how these wore and how they lasted, I am in love with Bootay Bag.
In the spirit of February and lots of self love, I will be signing up for my Bootay Bag subscription to keep receiving a quality product at a great price, each month. So who needs a Bootay Bag subscription? Honestly, I would recommend this product to everyone. Still need to find your special lady a gift for Valentine's Day? Order her a Bootay Bag subscription. Ladies? Want to surprise your bestie with a great Galentine's gift? Bootyay Bag. Are you really feeling these underwear and want to treat yourself? Go for it! Seriously, I am so impressed by this product.
