Made in China, not that ethical
The underwear was great, the shirt I got had fluff on it after washing it once and I can only use it as pyjamas. The main issue though is that everything is made in China. I’d probably prefer North Korea over China.
I don’t see how this aligns with their values.
Beware the shipping fees when returning!
I received my Boody products in a good period of time from ordering and packaging was environmentally friendly, however the sweatpants didn't fit as I'd hoped and initiated a return & refund.
The returns portal is a great interface and while there was an option for store credit with additional 10%, I wasn't confident about my sizing based on the previous order's outcome.
I opted for the refund and I was really disappointed to learn that Boody don't absorb the shipping costs for the return and so I am now without a pair of sweatpants and out of pocket $10.
This isn't consistent with the cost-free service you experience with other online retail brands and so regrettably I won't be using Boody again now.
Boody Bamboo Underwear
I cannot comment on other items as I have only purchased underwear and socks but have hardly worn the socks. I bought a pair of the classic bikini underwear which seemed to be quite good. I subsequently bought multiple more as they are very comfortable and a great, flattering design. However, after a few months, they have all started to deteriorate at the front. It is seemingly quite poor quality. If they change their manufacturing to reflect the cost to create better quality items, I would reconsider purchasing again but I will not be buying from this company in the near future.
love the simple version
I first purchased a pair of plain grey boody mens briefs from a health food store in Brisbane I was delighted with them. They are confortable eco friendly and a clever design with the minium of seams. So I ordered 5 more pair on line they arived quickly and were packaged in a very handsome box which could be recycled to my surprise and sadness the briefs inside were festooned with not one but three annoying satin lables with information that could have been printed on or in the box. the discreet branding on the original pair I purchased made the goods look smart and seem to in the eco ethos The satin tags dont work for mens underwear get rid of them MikeB
Classic example of over-marketed under-performing
My girlfriend bought me a pair of these undies. I initially thought they were good, and so got about a dozen more pairs. After wearing them for a few months I can tell you they are lacklustre. For me, it's like having your bits strapped to your body, there's no pocket for anything. The design is such that it's like wearing a tube instead of undies. My stuff is either smooshed up against my body uncomfortably, or splayed against my leg for everyone to see. The company's solution to this is for me to buy a whole other set of undies. Why not just ...discontinue the old ones? And while they are "moisture wicking" they take days to dry. As for being "eco" or "green" they're made in China and shipped to Australia! And they have plastic in them anyway, so not that enviro in the first place. Very disappointing. Customer service is rude too. When I complained about the products being weirdly fitting and uncomfortable for my junk, I was told to buy the new model. No thanks.
Expensive for Chinese products of inferior design.
I searched online for aussie made underwear and this retailer come up on the search. I purchased mens work socks and underwear (4 underwear/3 sock $86). I am an engineer so Im constantly active during the day. The socks are comfortable so no complaints there, but the underwear lacks support around the waist and around the crotch area. This is particularly noticeable during hot weather conditions. Due to the lack of decent elastic they become a mess and constantly require adjustment and seem to retain the heat more than any other underwear Ive e...ver worn. My wife also has a few pairs of the womens underwear and she also states that they are uncomfortable despite being bamboo material. Additionally, when the package arrived it clearly said Made in China, but online during purchase it wasnt as obvious. Had I known this I would never have purchased. Its time to get your QC/manufacturing base back to Australia Boody!
Disappointed where they are made
The product is fine, obviously I didn’t read the fine print. I really want underwear made in Australia. Theses are made in China ☹️
Great product and excellent customer service
Boody underwear is a great quality product which I have found to be really comfortable - they also have excellent customer service
Boody makes my thrush worst
I have a history of thrush, though I usually do not have thrush, I can get it quite easily if I am not careful, unfortunately boody underwear gives me thrush, I find they are too tight because they are so stretchy, it's like leggings material, though comfortable I would prefer the knickers to be less hugging. Also I did purchase the leggings they are comfortable and nice but very very thin so I'm still cold of I wear them under a dress or skirt which is what I usually do, they are alot thinner then most leggings.
Really tried to like this brand
The nightdress is awful - every tiny bump and lump is on full display. I'm a 12-14 and I purchased large. It was clinging, with tummy, breast and nipples on very full display.
I also purchased one of the bras. I didn't pay enough attention to the fine print on the website. In fact, it is only 79% viscose. The rest of nylon and elastine. That was disappointing too.
I guess the take-home message is that there is only so much you can do with viscose. Back to cotton and linen for me.
Bought some gifts for my sister and they were a winner
I bought some of the baby products for my sister and she was wrapped. Great quality product and fit a small newborn perfectly. I highly recommend to Boody to others!
Long activewear pants
Lovely and warm and thick for winter walks , i went up a size in these pants and I’m glad I did , I’m usually a medium but got a large , they fit well , my only complaint is the waist band falls down and I have to keep pulling it up but other than that pants are great!
Great product and excellent customer service
Great product quality, love the pjs ordered comfortable and well wearing so far - also ordered as gifts for my mum and mother in law! Excellent customer service - polite, friendly, prompt responses and very helpful.
Not comfortable at all
They are ok as far as sweating goes but uncomfortable to wear. Not enough support in the crotch. I also purchased Step One underwear to compare and Step One are so much better. Wouldn't recommend
A great brand
I do find this brand mostly very comfortable, I've tried many of their products.
Bikini- very comfy, have had some issues with inconsistent sizing and had to throw a couple of pairs out that were clearly cut so much differently to the all the others I have in the same size. Aside from that, amazing comfort and I wash in a delicatea bag so they last longer. I like the blush colour (nude)for usner summer dresses.
Midi brief- i purchased these thinking they would sort of hold my hips in, I was wrong, they cut them in half and made them look very...unflattering! Will stick with the bikini for my size 12 shape. Socks- all their socks have been amazing! Comfortable, soft, great with runners. I have many. Men's briefs- have been requested to get many more! Swapping over to all Boody is his request! V neck women's tshirt- so comfy, love wearing this to bed. Thermo regulating so good all year round too.
