So, you all remember the ultra awesome kickstarter for the wonderful Pixel Panties I already wrote about on here, right? Well, they officially launched a while ago and the designers were kind enough to send me a pair of their knickers. thank you again!
as soon as I opened the envelope I screamed because OMG awesome. That's when I thought I could do another unboxing vid because a) the packaging is amazing and b) I got a new phone with better quality and c) maybe this makes the whole blogging thing a bit easier for me again.
So, for my first impressions and excited stumbling look at this vid: Isn't the packaging amazing?
Fabric and Finish
The fabric feels amazing. It's lasercut so no hems cutting into your thighs or bum and the waistband is a bit thicker. There's no extra elastic added which makes it very nice to wear, but a bit harder to get them on if you aren't used to that because they don't stretch as much as knickers with elastics do.
I have to say at first I was a bit worried whether I could even get them on - but I think it's just unusual, not really a problem per se. I just hope the fabric of the waistband doesn't stretch with time because the lacking elastics would make the threat of going commando a damocles sword ;)
They are amazingly comfortable and the lasercut pixels are really lying flat on the bum, which I wasn't sure of whether that would work.
If you are, as I am, uncomfortable with waistbands cutting into your tummy you might consider sizing up. I went for a size M and it's a nice fit but to have my head rest in peace I think a slightly larger waistband would be better - but that may be just my head ;)
I love that they used a print on tag instead of an extra label sewn it. The comfort this poses for sensitive skin is just amazing. Feels so soft!
One thing I noticed is that they are REALLY skimpy on the back. Like, really. Think of a slip inbetween of a brasilian cut and a thong skimpy. At first I was surprised because I didn't really expect them to be skimpy, but on the other hand I really should have known: I mean we're talking huge pixels! of course the front and back panels are more or less triangular.
Would I recommend them as my go to knickers for everyday wear?
Probably not. But that's ok. The fact that getting them on was a bit weird due to my large butt and the non-stretchy waistband doesn't form a good idea in my head for my 4:00am wake up days - I'm happy that I can FIND my clothes thank you very much ;)
Would I recommend them as something fun and comfortable to wear or gift to a friend?
For around 25€ the quality is really ok, especially considering the ultra awesome packaging. I already have some dear friends in my mind that I want to buy these pretties for! Which also leads me to my wish to Pixel Panties: Will there be Pixel Boxers? :D
Will you order some Pixel Panties yourself? Which colour will or would you choose and why? (I really want the red ones too, because Mario. D'oh.)
