Full review including washability, inclusivity, fit, sustainability and ethical practices.

Have you been enjoying Underwear Thesis this week?? I hope so!! I’m absolutely loving sharing all of my uber-detailed thoughts and helping you find the best pair of underwear. Today’s review is dedicated to Knickey, a brand that’s been frequently requested for this project of mine.

I still feel a bit weird about having gotten a free product for this series, so I’m not sure that will continue going forward. As always, I disclose upfront when I’m given product and will continue to do so. With that settled, let’s dig into my Knickey underwear review!
