Sofia Vergara’s Underwear Brand, Eby, Is The Most Comfortable I’ve Ever Worn
The search for the perfect underwear is endless. Even when I find one I do like, it’s hard to stay loyal with the abundance of options that exist. For me, underwear was really just something I’d wear as part of a sexy lingerie set for the pure purpose of vanity or as a necessary evil while on my period. It didn’t really cross my mind that underwear could be comfortable till I tried EBY’s seamless panties ($15, EBY) and buttery soft tanks ($48, EBY).
The underwear and tanks from co-founder Sofia Vergara and philanthropist Renata Black’s brand aren’t just comfortable—as a die-hard supporter of going commando and braless (TMI?), I can honestly say these feel even better than being naked. I was first drawn to the brand by their charitable efforts, inclusive sizing, and promise of comfort. But when I finally tried them, I became an instant customer for life.
The brand is one I love to support.
EBY isn’t just a fantastic underwear brand. One of the brand’s biggest goals is to empower women everywhere. “I want to redefine the power of panties, flipping the narrative from being rooted in the male gaze to being about the empowerment of womxn,” says Black. Not only that, 10 percent of proceeds from the brand go toward funding the businesses of women living in poverty around the world. In 2020 alone, the brand brought 7,530 women and children out of poverty.
It doesn’t stop there—Black says another one of her ultimate goals is to help more than one million women out of poverty and into business. EBY isn’t just giving these women money—it’s teaching them how to make it. The best way to support the brand? With one of their memberships. Opt for three fresh pairs of panties every three months, or five every six months to continuously support the brand and its mission (and score a forever-fresh underwear drawer).
The fabric is the softest I’ve ever worn.
As a total fashion junkie, I thought my body had worn every fabric out there. I was completely wrong. The silky seamless thong and ultra lightweight, breathable tank I tried were unlike anything my skin had touched before, and that was absolutely purposeful. “Our technology makes us truly seamless with an unmatched, second-skin feel,” says Black—and I can completely attest to that.
The underwear looks just as good as it feels.
The tank is a bit sheer, so it’s not something I’d wear on its own when I’m out, but paired with the high-waisted thong ($15, EBY), it’s something I feel super sexy lounging in at home or wearing underneath my clothes when I need a bit of coverage but don’t actually feel like wearing underwear (which is most of the time).
Their items are quite fitted, which is great if you’re into a tighter silhouette, but I recommend sizing up one if you prefer something more roomy. Plus, the underwear features barely-noticeable grips that keep them from sliding down—something I seriously appreciate as a woman with a curvy waist and hips.
