*This is an unsponsored review and I purchased these items myself
I apologize if this is TMI, but I've been wearing the same undies from Victoria Secret since my college days (um over a decade now). Some of them have holes in them and some have period stains (too much?), so I finally decided I needed to be an adult and replace them. And PACT apparel, with their GOTS and Fair Trade certifications and use of organic cotton, has been on my radar for some time. When their Black Friday Sale came around I jumped at the chance of getting their 2-pack undies for $10 (normally $23). I tried out their classic bikini and their lace waist brief. The punchline of this review: I loved them both and can't wait to slowly convert my whole underwear drawer to PACT!
I purchased all my underwear in medium since that is the size I wore for my Victoria's Secret undies (I'm usually between a size 4-6 in pants, currently a 6 lol). But I found the medium for PACT is larger than for VS, so these undies have a bit of a granny panty look on me. I don't really care since it's underwear, but I think my true size is a small (this is especially true of the lace waist brief which I found was bigger than the regular briefs).
The underwear itself is made of very soft and smooth cotton. The elastic bands are comfortable and have a good amount of stretch to them. The lace waisted briefs are also really comfortable and well made. I'm not sure what else to say but these are good practical underwear and feel of a much better quality than my VS ones. But the true test is of course how they wear over time. I'll periodically update this post and let you know!
Since the retail price on these PACT undies are quite a bit more than VS ones (because the VS ones are produced via slave labor), I recommend waiting for their sales (and a friend informed me that they sometimes can be found on sale at Whole Foods Market). Or if you're a first time buyer, here's a referral link for 20% off your first purchase (and thanks for supporting my dreams of converting my underwear drawer to PACT)!
P.S. I also got an offer for free socks from PACT with purchase (I just had to fill an online form with my purchase number), and true to their word I got them in the mail about 2 weeks later. Score!
