Stay Dry & Comfortable with WAMA Underwear

When you travel, you probably do a lot more walking and sweating than usual. I know we do. Having appropriate undergarments are important and the difference between feeling sticky and miserable or happy and comfortable. I am always looking for better clothing and underwear to make my trips more enjoyable. WAMA uses sustainable hemp to create soft and pretty basics for your everyday life that are also perfect for travel.

WAMA uses sustainable hemp to create soft and pretty basics for your everyday life that are also perfect for travel.

Why? Because hemp is sustainable - meaning it's good for the planet - and it's anti-bacterial. That means when you sweat, it eliminates any yuck bacteria and odors. It means your downstairs will be healthy and happy. Even if you walk all over the city, your underwear are breathable, giving you the perfect conditions. 

I have had my WAMA undies for 2 weeks now and have loved wearing them. I have the hipster, the boy short and also the triangle bralette. I wanted to try a little of everything. I work all day in a warehouse, so the temperature fluctuates and I'm lugging around boxes. My WAMA are always comfortable and dry. They don't ride up and except for a bit of a pantyline from the hipsters, they are a perfect fit under clothing. I generally wear jeans, so that's not an issue, and unlike with some other underwear, the thicker edge doesn't dig into your skin when wearing close-fitting garments. (No one likes to look like they're still wearing underwear when they're not wearing underwear. Am I right?)

One of my favorite things about WAMA is that they don't have annoying tags. Don't you hate having scratchy tags on bras and undies? Nothing like doing the itchy tag dance because you got a stabby tag rubbing your derrière or jabbing you in the ribs. Nope, WAMA puts all their tag info, including wash instructions, right on the inside of the fabric. They have a little logo made of the same soft hemp fabric, so it doesn't interfere with your comfort at all. 

The hipster: WAMA run a bit small, so ordering a size up (go by their actual size chart) is advisable. This gives you a little bit extra room, but not too much. I didn't notice any friction or sag. The waistband is soft and perfectly stretchy. 

The boy short: These are the ideal length and don't have a seam up the middle like a lot of similar underwear for women that make them super uncomfortable, because they ride up in your most sensitive places. 

The triangle bralette: I am small-busted, so I usually wear a bra with an underwire for support. Most bralettes don't have any support whatsoever, so I end up looking even flatter than I am. I was dubious of this one, but I tried it anyway. It's soft and adjustable, which is pretty rare, plus it has a dart sewn on the bottom of the bust, so it gives you the little bit of lift you want without padding or wires. If you're a t-shirt person, this is your bra, and because that darted fabric is on the underside, you don't have a weird line that people can see through your shirt. Hook and eye closure on the back.

I'm short, and even though that means I have to cinch the straps more than other people and the fabric comes up a bit closer to my armpits than one would usually like, it's not awkward and there's no chafing. Big bonus. The band is the same as you'll find on the underwear, though maybe a little thicker, but it doesn't move at all and you never have to adjust it as you're going about your day. Also, it's nice and wide, so it gives you support without digging into your ribcage. 

The boxer brief: I asked to try out the boxer brief because Eric is hard on clothes and super picky about underwear. In fact, he pretty much only has a drawer full of one brand, because they are the only ones he thinks are comfortable, supportive, and moisture-wicking. Well, that's probably going to change, because he really liked these. It's been relatively hot here and he goes for regular walks around the neighborhood. He went on an extra-long one with his sister while wearing these and he wasn't soaked through. He said that he was dry when he came back home, so these are definitely a win for him. Comfortable, snug, but not tight, supportive, and they breathe well, so no extra sweating, which means no chafing or rashy areas.

Right now WAMA only comes in a small range of solid, neutral colors, but they are all lovely and great for under any clothing. They look and feel natural, because they are. They should get softer with more washings. I've only washed them a few times, but I'll definitely keep track of how future washes change the feel of the fabric. 

If you're looking for new additions to your travel bag or a functional gift for kids going off to college or hoping to travel soon, WAMA is a great start to that, because (almost) everyone needs underwear.
