TomboyX was founded the way many brands are, trying to fill a need that had gone unfilled for far too long. By that I mean the type of underwear that fits regular bodies and fits how we see ourselves. The underwear that anybody could feel comfortable in, regardless of their size or gender.
So let's start from the beginning. What does it mean to be a... :
TOMBOY [TOM-BOI] NOUN
1. An energetic, sometimes boisterous girl.
2. A girl who dresses and sometimes behaves the way boys are expected to.
3. A girl or a woman who DGAF about definitions 1 and 2.
4. A woman who is utterly, completely, and unapologetically herself, who is not afraid to stand up, stand out, be heard, be seen. On her terms.
5. A woman or a person who expresses and dresses herself in a way that feels authentic to her without worrying about what other people might say.
6. Is damn ok with who they are.
7. Don't find a need to be overly sexualized; only feel sexy in lace and/or sheer underwear (although that is okay, if that is what makes you feel comfortable)
8. Not a phase.
Personally I love being a Tomboy. Of course that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy my romantic and sensual side; however, when I'm all ME and hanging out with my hubby at home, there is nothing better than wearing something comfortable while lounging in our room. Feeling comfortable can be a challenge as female standards for dress and appearance can be exhausting and entirely too demanding, but when I accidentally stumbled upon the TomboyX brand, I decided to contact them. A quick, professional, and responsive staff made sure that my selections would fit me and my personality the best. I was quite excited about it and I waited not-so-patiently for my package to arrive. My husband and I had very high expectations for these underwear (the cool thing about TomboyX is that my husband and I can both shop there).
We ordered the following:

What is very noticeable is that they worked hard to ensure every pair of underwear is made of great quality and is inclusive; fitting and complimenting your figure. All the items came relatively quick and nicely packaged. They are visually appealing and great on touch; very soft. They fit very well. Tomboy X designs their underwear to fit women's bodies, so instead of the straight shape they'd have if they were emulated after men's boxers, they have a curve to them that fits feminine shapes very nicely. I imagine this would be a perfect option for absolutely everyone who needs that extra dose of comfort (example: if you are pregnant or spend long hours in tight clothes). I wore my pair on our latest hiking expedition and I loved the fact that they are feather-light, silky, and moisture-wicking! This is important for anyone with an active lifestyle, especially those living in the great state of California. Everyone deals with perspiration -- whether it happens while exercising or on a first date. Regardless of what causes your body to heat up, sweating is its way of cooling itself down. TomboyX has used modern fabric technology to help people keep cool. You've probably heard of fabrics that "wick away moisture," but you may not know what that means. Just like a candle draws wax up the wick to the flame, wicking fabric pulls moisture from the body to the exterior of the shirt where it can evaporate more easily. The underwear apparel does great in both washer and dryer. They didn't shrink, which is a great plus! I also support everyone's decision to express themselves freely and be treated equally. That is an undisputed right of every individual. Therefore, it was my pleasure to work with a brand that shares my views. Underwear for non-binary people, or for people with unconventional gender presentations can be really hard. So it’s always great to see a company working to distinguish itself from traditional feminine underwear design to create something a little different.
TomboyX, focuses on “unconventional” women. The models mostly appear to be older women and/or butch women, athletes, and sizes 10 and up; which I appreciate. The styling is in essence urban. I won't label it as androgynous, as women come in many shapes, sizes, and personal styles. I think its redundant to label some women as androgynous. They are simply women! The Tomboy shorts are easily the best underwear I’ve seen in a while. They are short enough to wear with any summer shorts, they are comfy, and they make me feel sexy AF! ;)
