Heyyyyy so it's July and I'm still catching up on a few unboxing posts from the end of June. It happens. But good things are often worth the wait, yes? Today I'll be showing you what I got in June's Splendies box, AKA a surprisingly adorable assortment of undies. I was little on the fence about Splendies when I first subscribed, but I'm clear off it now!
New to Splendies? Here's what you need to know:
- Splendies is a underwear subscription that sends you three panties per month in assorted styles. When you sign up you can indicate whether you're down with thongs or not, but beyond that, it's a total surprise. (I went for the no thongs option, personally.)
- The subscription is priced at $13.99 per month, including shipping within the United States. They also ship to Canada and worldwide with monthly rates of $20.99 and $22.99 respectively. Use coupon code SPLENDIES to get $4 off your first month.
- Random budget panties not your thing? Splendies also has a new subscription called LUXE, which sends out premium panties instead. That's not what I'm reviewing today, but I figured I'd mention it.
- Splendies is currently available in sizes S-XL. If you wear a plus size, you're not totally out of luck though—they also run a similar service called Volupties (available in sizes 1X-3X) for $17 per month.
The Splendies site suggests ordering a size up if you're in-between sizes, so I ordered XL. That seems to be the appropriate choice for me. To figure what's right for your rump, check out their size chart.
June was a special month for Splendies: Rather than an assortment of brands, subscribers received three different panties from Honeydew Intimates! I had never owned any of their undergarments before, but a quick browse around the site got me excited—their stuff is very cute.
"Emily" Sheer Micro Hipster in Lilac/Grapefruit (value $12):
A sheer, silky-feeling hipster panty with lacy trim. There's also some butt ruching and and a cute little loop at the back. I like these panties because they feel super lightweight—great under almost anything!
"Claudia" Rayon Hipster in Poolside (value $14):
Lace, lace, lace (with a cotton crotch). I find panties with this much lace a little impractical for everyday wear, but I love the way they look. Special occasion undies. This color is really fun too.
XDYE Rayon Boyshort in JamN Jelly (value $14):
This pair looks a bit smaller than the others that came in this month's shipment, but the fabric is super soft and sort of stretchy. I like this style, though what I'd like even more is a panty in this color and material with fuller butt coverage. Hmm, maybe I should have a browse around Honeydew's site....
Total box value: Approximately $40
There's only so much I can say about a handful of panties, but I loved this month's assortment. All three pairs were super cute, comfy, and didn't ride up my butt even though one of the pairs is on the "cheeky" side. I think some or all of these may be discontinued colors or styles, but considering how much Honeydew panties sell for at full price, this batch seems like an amazing value to me.
I've only been subscribed to Splendies for a couple of months now so I don't know if them pairing up with a specific brand is a thing they've done before, but I'd love to see them do it again. I had never paid much attention to Honeydew, but now that I've got some of their drawers in my drawers I really, really like them. Yay for discovery!
