A week or so ago, Boody bamboo ecowear was having a 30% autumn sale on selected items and I had been meaning to try out their underwear and socks for a while now so when this opportunity to save a few dollars per piece (this uni student needs to hustle and budget), I placed in my order.
Benefits of bamboo clothing (for both you and the environment)
- Blocks UV rays
- Moisture wicking (aka no damp feeling)
- Keeps you cool in Summer and warm in Winter
- Anti-bacterial and anti fungal
- Odour resistant
- Requires low maintenance to produce, hence does not deplete the earth’s natural resources as fast

Additionally, the packaging for all of the items received in my purchase + delivery box
- are able to be recycled
- text, image, colouring is printed with vegetable based inks
- printed on recycled paper
- 91% Viscose made from organically grown bamboo
- 7% polyester
- 2% elastane
Underwear: I was surprised how smooth the texture of the underwear was! Also, it was a seamless finish which added to the overall comfort of the pieces. The only downside of the underwear was the sizing – I purchased the smallest size which was a (8-10) and it indeed was a size 8-10 as it just fit (if not slightly loose ) at the hip area
Socks: I tested the socks on a relatively humid and rainy day – my feet got really warm by mdday HOWEVER, I did not feel any moisture inside the sock.
Delivery to Sydney was extremely fast – it took pretty much 1 business day for it to arrive.
I’d definitely be repurchasing in the future as delivery was quick, the items were packed simply and nicely and on top of that, these bamboo basics are gentle to the skin and the environment.
Thanks for reading – any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!
