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.
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!

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
Website was very easy to navigate. These sock are definitely very comfortable, they are nice and thick but also don't hold the sweat. Definitely will be getting black ones tho next time as these one's do stain from dirt easily.
Protect the Planet...with Plastic?
I just purchased some socks and underwear which I love- no problem with the product. What I can't understand though is how they justify their eco stand when they wrapped the already boxed and cardboard wrapped items in PLASTIC! Only the socks came in plastic however, so it can't be unnecessary 'protection' of the items. Was SO disappointed to see this when I opened the box and had to shake my head when I read the inside of the box read 'For The Planet'.
