Panty Drop regular subscription panty subscription box review

If you wish, you can choose multiple materials and styles, or just one of each. You get sent 3 pairs of panties per box and they are a surprise, yet limited to the styles and materials you selected. I love this because it is a surprise but without much risk of getting items you don’t like. However, if you do get something that you don’t love, they allow exchanges! I’ve tried out Panty Drop multiple times and am always happy with the quality and selection they’ve offered me. There’s just something mood-boosting about getting new panties in the mail.
