Why Didn’t I Think of That – Volupties

These days, there’s a subscription program for everything, from tee shirts to lip glosses to statement necklaces. And for a long while there have been subscription services for lingerie and underpinnings, but they weren’t that nice of quality and never fit plus size women. As a woman with larger curves, I often feel left out of such programs – they all seem great but they don’t offer extended sizes. We women want fun and flirty and fabulous things in our mailbox too!

Enter Volupties, a subscription service that offers high-quality pretty underwear for curvy and plus-sized women. For just $17 a month (shipping included), you will receive three pairs of quality underwear delivered discreetly to your door. Each month you will receive different brands, different styles, different colors.  They are constantly adding new brands and manufacturers to their collection, providing members on occasion with undies that are valued at over $20 each in select packages!

Volupties let me try out the program and I received three different yet all pretty and flirty pairs – a cotton bikini by Intimate Basics in a gorgeous teal color with fun stitching and bow detail, a fabulous lace hipster from Vision Intimates in a gorgeous shade of hot pink, and a racy gray leopard of a stretchy silky fabric by Jennifer Intimates.  All three are high quality – better than what you can find in a big box store and far more fun than what you can usually find in a department store in larger sizes.  Packages arrive wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper.

Volupties has subscriptions in three size combos, XL/1X, 2X, and 3X. They have a size chart on their site to help you choose the right fit, and make it easy if you need to change your size or cancel your subscription. If you are smaller, try their sister site, Splendies. While I love a great lipstick or trial size of skincare, sometimes a new fabulous pair of undies can transform your outlook even more!

And just for Wardrobe Oxygen readers, use code OXYGEN when you subscribe, and you can save $4 off your first month with Splendies and $5 off your first month with Volupties!

Note: While I was provided a free month, I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.  I just think it's a pretty fabulous program and am thrilled when companies recognize that plus size women deserve products to make them feel sexy and fabulous!

    Hi Allie! I love your blog. I subscribed to Volupties using your promo code and I wanted to leave a comment about pricing since I had to go back-and-forth with their customer service when my second month was billed. The first month is promotionally priced at $12, and you can get $5 off that using the OXYGEN code, making the first shipment $7. However, subsequent months are charged at $17/month, not $12/month. I don’t think they are very clear about this on their website.

      Thanks for that feedback, Kerry! Volupties is a newer company and I know they will appreciate this feedback!

    I love this idea–thank you for sharing! Also, what is the subscription program for statement necklaces that you casually mentioned in your opening paragraph? I must know about that too as I am addicted to statement necklaces!!!

    Tried to use the code when subscribing for the Splendies one, and it “was not validated” :-/

    Novelty counts for a lot in my book. Naturally, I feel that this is PURE GENIUS.

    Thank you for this, I totally signed up! I desperately need to go through my drawer and throw out all the underwear I hate – this is just the motivation I need! (It wouldn’t take your code though, but the one on the site gave me the same discount.)

      Glad you got a code that worked! For everyone, the code has been updated and now works! 🙂

    I could see doing this for awhile. Some of my underware is not too wonderful looking and pairs arriving automatically might be a good nudge to get rid of those pairs that are serviceable, but have stains.

    Do woman normally buy 3 pairs of undies a month? I think I tend to buy about three pairs every four – six months. They don’t wear out that fast, do that? We do about two loads of washing a week for the two of us so I only need a stock of about 14- 20 pairs… (including different colours, styles, materials etc)

      It isn’t needed, but then it’s not necessary to own a dozen pairs of heels or 20 lipglosses. It’s all about what someone wants to spend on and what makes them feel good 🙂

    very cool!! question: in your size did you go the volupties or splendies route?

    • July 12, 2013 / 4:25 pm

      I went with Splendies, I carry more of my weight on top and fit Large best in undies 🙂

    Oooh, fun! I think you may have accidentally left out a word in the sentence right above the picture, where it says “We women want fun and flirty and fabulous things in our mailbox too!” I don’t think you’re the type of person who says things like “REAL women are/aren’t a size ___.”

    • July 12, 2013 / 4:24 pm

      I meant that in the previous sentence how I mentioned curvy women like me, but yes looking back the paragraph doesn’t flow well 🙂 I’ll update when I’m back in town, thank you!

    I’m not one to cuss, but I almost did when I saw this post!I think you just unleashed an addict. I love undies!
