Soy Underwear



Apparently, they are made of soy by-products. And come as a 3-pack in a compost-able burlap bag. Thoughts?

Usually I love offbeat humor, but Uranus -- tacky.

What a clever name. They look cozy.

My first thought is that the name is unfortunate. It is a good idea but they should've gone with a different planet...

At first I thought it was funny, but really? No thanks on the name. They do look super comfy, though. I wouldn't mind wearing them.

I think it's cheeky. I think it's funny. They look comfy.

I'm loving all the reactions! I think I might have to get some and try them out.

I wonder if they'd be good for working out. How breathable do you suppose soy is?

"Cheeky"? ! Perfect comment!

But I too think the name is sophomoric and would appeal mostly to middle-school aged boys.

After a certain age, dignity does matter.

Cute if they didn't call them Uranus. Don't really wanna be thinking about that when I buy underwear...

Somehow I don't thing my hubby would find these 'hot, hot, hot'! And, wouldn't you be embarrassed if you were wearing these and got in a car accident?

Uranus is totally gross. I agree-- Cheeky = perfect! :)

um...concept, fine. name...4th grade boy humor. no thanks, even though technically it is pronounced differently than it seems here...

Ha! 5 year old humor :) I bet they are actually comfy.

I also don't care for the name. If they are actually planning on selling them as more than a gag, they may have wanted to reconsider that one. They do look comfy though. ;)

I have a soy thermal top and it is awesome, warm and totally comfy. The softest top! These would be awesomely comfortable!

Very cute underwear, very un-cute name. Cool idea- I like the bag.

I have to admit that even though the name is ridiculous it got us all chatting about it. I guess I should take back my first comment "What an awful name" and change it to "How clever!" I would have loved to be involved during the naming session.

Immediately grossed out by the name despite my wild and crazy sense of humor.

i think they look cute, but i don't want anything that hints at "anus" on my little heine. it's gross.

Does the burlap make the underwear itchy? That does not seems like a good place for burlap, I like the soy byproduct idea though!

I love it! I have bought them, wear them all the time, even sleep in them. They are softer than cotton and adds humor to a great cause! Hey, they are right in my drawer next to my Spanx!! THEY ARE GREAT!!!

By the way, they come to reference the prior comment. They come wrapped in a nice tissue inside the burlap bag, nice and protected, not even touching the burlap. I love the little bag also. I received my order in 2 days. You should try them ~ a great price of $19 for 3 panties!!

The name is great.
Clearly it's working considering the number of posts on this page.
Also, I noticed their slogan on their website (which this blog fails to mention).
"Help Save Planet Earth Starting with Uranus".
hahahah really clever.
I actually purchased a set a few weeks ago and LOVE them.
I've actually gotten comments from people who happen to catch the little logo sticking out and gotten compliments. These panties are awesome!
