We’ve seen the rise of subscription underwear boxes in recent years, and we decided to explore one of these to see what all the fuss is about.
Best Gay Life is one of these subscription services that specialises in providing underwear, swimwear, sportswear and more catered towards the LGBTQI+ community. Whilst this model isn’t unique, the brands approach to it is, offering regular blogs and podcasts ensuring their subscribers are kept well informed about a variety of topics including food, travel, entertainment and fashion recommendations, interviews and stories with key gay role models, and much more…
The subscription service itself offers 4 different packages, prices are inclusive of shipping charges:
- Milk – £20 per month
receive one pair of underwear each month
- Magnus* – £50 per month
receive one pair of underwear and a one full size grooming product or two travel sizes every month
- Bayard* – £70 per month
receive two pairs of underwear and one full size grooming product and two travel sizes, or four travel size products every month
- Lorde* – £90 per month
receive three items, a mix of underwear, swimwear and activewear, with a mix of three to five travel and full sized premium grooming products every month
*With these selected packages you can also enjoy exclusive access to perks and rewards with free monthly treats worth over £20, with an additional monthly Netflix credit worth £6-£7!
We got sent our very own Magnus box to trial, and we were very impressed. The shipping time scale was very reasonable, and whilst the box itself appeared small, this shows the companies awareness of environmental impacts in minimising packaging. We received a fab pair of green palm leaf print Addicted briefs, which are extremely comfortable, and 2 travel size products from Rituals, a gorgeous eucalyptus and rosemary hand soap (which has come in extremely handy of late) and some soul uplifting body cream. We can certainly see the appeal of receiving a box of these goodies every month and especially in our current climate, even more reason to keep a fresh stock of underwear coming in.
The brands offer of Netflix credit and additional resources and perks only show the brands commitment to giving their customers the best possible lifestyle experiences available, and their commitment to future developments in personalisation show their willingness to stay current and ahead of the trend curve. Furthermore, they have a referral scheme whereby if you refer a friend who signs up to a service, you get 10% off your next months subscription and your friend receives a special gift.
We’re excited to see how this brand develops, and we would urge you all to give them a try, you can cancel at any time but we’re confident that you’ll want to keep using them once you’ve had your first box – even if it’s just so you don’t have to worry about going out and grabbing some of the products they send you, and you may want a cute new pair of underwear to show off every month…
