What you'll get: Underwear, socks, and bralettes from the Core, FeelFree, or Breathe Collections.

Here's what my colleague thought: 

"I own the Baby Yoda underwear + bralette that came out last year and can attest that MeUndies are ridiiiiiiculously soft — the fabric is super buttery, but doesn't pill or stretch out in the wash. I also really love how gentle the seams are — there's no pinch-y elastic feeling, and the sets are so lightweight and breathable that you barely notice them on." —Emma Lord, Buzzfeed Editor

Get a subscription from MeUndies starting at $8+ per month.
