Splendies September 2015

Kia Ora!

I've got a bit of a different subscription box to unbox today. It's one I've been looking at for just over a year now, and I decided to just go ahead and order it. It's an underwear subscription, Splendies. This subscription sends you 3 pairs of underwear every month, for $10USD. With the exchange rate (and international shipping of $9USD) I ended up paying $30NZD for a month, which isn't too bad as long as the underwear are high quality. Heck, even if they aren't, $10 for a pair of underwear is still pretty cheap.

The package arrived in a small bag, wrapped in tissue paper. I like that they just pop it in a bag, because fabric items don't require the same level of shipping care. They won't mind if the postie chucks them through a basketball hoop. Anyway ... on to the contents of the package!



The first pair is black with white spots, and pink elastic around the edges. I thought these were pretty neat when I first saw them, not too fancy but good for a reliable pair of underwear. Upon wearing them, one leg hole is smaller than the other (or I have one fatter thigh) so they were quite uncomfortable. I'll be passing these on to my sister.


This pair is my favourite! I love purple, the orange and pink flowers work really well with it, and the purple lace around the edges is very pretty. These ones are a winner!


This pair is a light peach colour, and very comfortable. They have no seams apart from attaching the lace/elastic around the edges, and are very soft.

Overall I'm really impressed with what I can get in this subscription. I've got 2 new pairs of underwear, and one going to my sister. I liked the designs of all three, and am happy with the price I paid.

You can sign up using my link if you are interested in this subscription (for every three referrals I get a free month), but this link is a non-affiliate link. Alternately please feel free to put 'Intrepid Forays' as the referral name if you are signing up. I would be super grateful for your use of the affiliate link, but no pressure at all if you aren't keen on that option. The coupon code SPLENDIES also gets you a discount of a few dollars on your first month.

What do you think of the subscription?

Until next time ...
