Find of the Month: Panty By Post
Sometimes I find gift ideas and it’s like this crazy light bulb moment. Really, sharing ideas sometimes makes me feel as good as I imagine the inventor of said ideas felt when they came up with their primo product – and today is one such example. I’ve talked a few times now about all the different beauty sampling services, that are basically like an ‘Of The Month’ club delivered to your door. It seems those have started an all-out throwback revolution (lest we forget, these clubs weren’t really popular for quite some time) of sensational subscriptions – I’ve seen everything pop up from pet supplies to chocolates. This month’s big find? Panty By Post, a company that delivers a lacy, frilly under thing to your door on a monthly basis.
The process is pretty simple. You go on the Panty by Post shopping area and select a subscription plan. Want to test the waters? Order a single surprise panty ($30). Looking for a new thrill for your man every month? Get a year-long subscription for a discounted rate of $216. You’ll also get the chance to choose your style – opt in for thongs, regular panties, or a mixture of the two. Not a huge fan of surprises? You can even send in a list of requests from the panty gallery, and they’ll do their best to ship your top choices. Plus if you get a pair and it’s not quite the right size, you can even send it back for free.
What I particularly love / got excited about with this unique service is the idea of gifting it to a bride-to-be. Whether it’s a naughty gift for your soon-to-be-married sister or best friend, or the bridesmaids pool their resources to fund a year-long trousseau for the newlyweds, this is a fun way to spice up anyone’s lingerie wardrobe. There’s even a ‘Bridal Line’ where you can order gemstone-emblazoned panties with Bride, Bridesmaid, or Maid of Honour, as well as lacy garters for the classic garter toss.
And despite the name of the company, men can also get in on the act with the company’s Bambou boxer briefs, available in three colours and pre-wrapped, it’s pretty much instant gift-giving. On the flip side, guys take note – this is a great way to gift your gal with some frilly underthings without setting foot into a lady-oriented lingerie shop. You can also include a personalized message so she knows just who’s slipping some sweet nothings into the mail for her.
A few final notes? For one, don’t feel like these pretty panties are somehow going to exclude the lady (or gentleman) you’re buying for. Not only can you choose your style, you can also select sizes from XS to XXXXL. Not sure what size she’s rocking? Buy a gift card and let her select her perfect panty subscription. Your order ships every month from the very first day you order it as well, so annoying wait times while a new subscription cycle begins. Also nifty? The gorgeous little packaging that’ll give any gal a thrill when she opens up her mailbox – as the company so cheekily notes, it’ll make the mailman blush!
