It’s not exactly news that Underoos launched a line for adults over the past few years, but with new designs every season, their growing collection of throwback underwear sets are quickly becoming a staple of geek fashion. So, when they reached out to me for a review, I seriously could not say no. As a die-hard Star Wars fangirl, I’ve always loved Underoos’ creative and fun designs, even though I was born a little too late to experience the Underoos fad for kids when I was younger. But forget about that, because here I am, sitting in my R2-D2 Galaxy Set and loving it.
My set came in a Junior’s size large, and while it fits great, I do wish I’d asked for a size down (for reference, here’s the sizing chart, to help you make more conscious decisions than I did) — the underwear isn’t cut like a standard panty and is a little too big for me because I went with large. Still, it’s super comfy and snug, but not cut for sexiness, which is fine because I don’t think anyone buys Underoos for the purpose of seduction. I mean, I buy them for all the cartoon characters.
I chose this set because I love the galaxy print, which ranges in different hues of blue. The print of Artoo is smooth, soft, and looks like it’s going to hold up for quite a few washes. But let’s be real: I love this set because R2-D2 is easily the most important character in the Star Wars universe, and probably the sole reason that the story has lasted this long anyway, making him one of the best characters in the franchise. Our favorite little droid’s name is printed on the underwear, just below the side of the hip.
Overall, I love this set. I’ve been sitting around and editing my podcast in it since I finished taking the 200 photos that didn’t make it into this blog post, and the fabric is so soft that I can’t help but take quick naps in between edits. Thanks a bunch to Underoos and Janet Cowan for this chance to review this cute little set! Now, if I might suggest a ladies’ Rebel Pilot set and the return of Hoth Leia, I think you all might have me sold for life. Heh heh heh!
