We Rate The Best Subscription Boxes: Underwear


+ snag you exclusive discounts

We’ve tested all sorts of subscription boxes—from kawaii, to beauty, to workout gear—and now it’s time for us to try out something a bit more, well, personal: underwear.

Don’t deny it, we all have a few pairs of embarrassing underwear we really just need to part with, but somehow they still end up lurking at the bottom of our drawers. Now that you can get new pairs delivered to your door each month, it’s never been easier to stop this awful habit. We tried out seven of the most popular underwear subscription brands—Skivvie NIX, Bootay Bag, Panty Joy, The Enclosed, Underclub, Me Undies, and Splendies—so that you can figure out which one is the right fit for you.

Toss those granny panties and prepare to be sent the cutest new undies. Click through the gallery below to get the nitty gritty on these awesome underwear subscription boxes.

Our Favorite: Skivvie NIX


Cost: $19 per box, month to month, $18.50 per box for three months, $18 per box for six months, $17 per box for one year (all boxes contain two pairs of underwear)

The Dirt: Skivvie NIX definitely wins for overall adorable-ness of their packaging and product names. You can choose from three different boxes: T-Bone, which contains two thongs; Tenderloin, which contains one thong and one cheekie; and Rump Roast, which contains two cheekies. As you can see from the photo, the undies are sent to you in what resembles meat packaging, and covered in labels such as “Free range, ass fed." You get to choose between basic, neutral, or mixed colors. Oh, and the underwear itself is extremely comfy, I chose Rump Roast for myself.

I'm cackling

Last year, Balenciaga released bright red square-toed mules which bore a striking resemblance to McDonald's french fry cartons. Now, the chain has fired back at the designer, threatening to release its own version of the shoes.

McDonald's Sweden posted a photo to its Instagram of a person wearing actual McDonald's fry cartons as shoes, and honestly, if there weren't yellow M's printed onto them, I'd have a hard time distinguishing them from the Balenciagas from a distance. Though the post doesn't directly reference the Balenciaga shoes, one can only assume that's who they are trolling.

McDonald's version actually makes for some pretty fly slip-ons, if you ask me. Good thing the Swedish branch of Mickey D's seems to be considering releasing the shoes if the post receives enough attention. The caption of the Instagram post translates to, "If we get 103042 likes we release these for real," though it only has about 17,000 as of publish time. These would likely cost much less than the Balenciaga shoes, which cost $545.

Internet, do your thing. I want a pair.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.
