One visit was all it took to see that underwear could be something other than, what I always thought of, as a sack to cover your bum. They could be pretty, lacy, oh-so-soft, and fun to wear. I abandoned my earlier sources for underwear and bras, and from that day on I purchased them all from this one store. Funny thing is, my mom converted, too! Whenever a semi-annual sale popped up, we'd pick up all kinds of goodies. It actually became a fun thing we'd do together.
However, sadly, like many companies and brands in the past... it seems to be going the way of the dinosaurs. They are still a huge, very popular brand. But their quality is declining each year, and I've found a list of things wrong with each piece of underwear I've bought there. They're itchy, discolor, don't sit right, don't provide coverage where you need it, and are guaranteed to fall apart within two years. But without being aware of other options out there, I continued buying from them.
Then I found Knix Wear. If you want underwear that works so that you don't have to, look no further. Absorbent and sweat resistant, Knix Wear designs high-quality underwear. Knix Wear has set out to provide women with just what they need. The FreshFix Technology™ eliminates odor, so you can wear what you want, when you want, worry-free! Seamless, athletic, and lace are their three main categories. Full figured women will also be happy to hear they have curvy options just for you!
I was eager to try out Knix Wear, and received one pair for review. I went with the Lace Knixy Boyshort in "Nude." I love, love, love lace, even though it is delicate and so kind of high maintenance. I was immediately impressed by the lace. I have never seen any lace pattern quite like it. I noticed right away that it seemed to be a very high-quality lace, but considering my experience with lace in the last four years or so, I wasn't very optimistic.
Fast forwarding five months, I have worn my Knixy Boyshorts a lot, and they have become my favorite pair of underwear. I generally always opt for thongs, as I like to avoid anything my husband may be able to categorize as "granny panties," but the Knixy Boyshorts look amazing not just by themselves, but when being worn. I also find they are smooth, do not show through clothes, and are not itchy or uncomfortable. Furthermore, the lace is still in perfect condition, and I mean perfect. Not a single rip, tear, or hole anywhere. I grab for them first every time I've done a load of laundry. The only improvement I can see for Knix Wear going forward, is that it would be nice if the gusset were a little softer and a little leaner, it is a hint wide for me. However this is a minor detail, and despite it, Knix Wear is still the most amazing underwear I've worn, ever. The nude color will be perfect for the summer, so that I don't have to worry about my underwear being visible when paired with a white dress. The evolution of underwear has just taken a step up, and that's with Knixwear! I can't say enough about how wonderful they are. I can see my entire underwear collection slowly being replaced until it is exclusively Knix Wear. They are functional, fashionable, and positively fabulous!
