TomboyX Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
Customers on Reddit are extremely loyal to the brand. For every negative, such as the high price of underwear, there is a positive to defend it. One customer says they “exclusively wear TomboyX.” Customers love that the underwear is designed for the female body, but has a more masculine feel.
It’s a belief that Tomboy is more expensive because they’re a decent company. They use quality materials and pay their workers well. Not to mention, the company uses Living Wage Factories that are women-owned. Customers believe the cost is justified because of the work the brand does in the community.
When looking at TomboyX Amazon ratings, out of hundreds of reviews, 82% are 5/5 stars for their bras and 80% are 5/5 for their underwear. Customers who may not like how they fit still rate the company as 4 or 5 stars because they love what the brand is all about.
One reviewer writes, “I appreciate that this company is queer-friendly, pays a living wage, and does not use sweatshops. That is a big deal to me, which makes the price worth it if they fit you.”
On the TomboyX website, reviews write of the great fit, the comfy feel, the quality material, and the fact the underwear doesn’t ride up on the leg.
Is TomboyX Worth It?
TomboyX may be on the pricier side when it comes to underwear, but all of their items are quality made, made in the USA, and made by people paid fair wages. The brand receives praise from all who buy their items, even if the fit was slightly off. Talk about a loyal following!
This TomboyX review found no complaints about shipping or customer service, but no praises about those two things either. People do love their underwear and clothing, but more so they love what the company is about, and hence will support them regardless.
