Knix: My Honest Review of Every Product I’ve Tried

Knix has been my go-to underwear brand for a few years now. From the first pair of underwear, I was hooked! I’ve tried so many of their products from regular undies, period products, bras, swimwear, and activewear. I am a major fan of a lot of their stuff, but there are a few things that just didn’t do it for me.

Now let’s jump into what I love about Knix—starting with their cornerstone product—leakproof underwear.

Knix Leakproof Underwear Review

Leakproof underwear is one of the Knix products I rave about to anyone who will listen! I know that periods and leaks can be a touchy subject for some, but it’s a reality for many of us. Knix takes all the stress out of when periods or leaks happen, relieves the mental drain of needing to stock up on tampons or pads, and helps reduce waste. A win from all sides.

They have different absorbency levels (one pair can absorb up to 12 tsp of liquid!) for each style, so you can find exactly what suits you. You can even get a period kit with a bundled discount if you’re not sure of where to start. Even if you don’t deal with periods, these are an amazing option for anyone managing light bladder leakage. They also work amazingly well if you have issues with sweating. The fabric wicks away any moisture and will leave you feeling comfortable and fresh.

These underwear come in two different fabric options. The original nylon-spandex blend, and a cotton modal blend. Initially, I did not like the latter blend. The waistband was tight and I found it would dig into my sides in a way the nylon-spandex did not. However, Knix takes customer feedback very seriously and they’ve leveled up the cotton-modal making it just as comfortable as the original! If you like sleek and cool-to-the-touch fabrics like silk, go with the nylon-spandex blend. If you like something more breathable and classic like your favorite lived-in band t-shirt, try the cotton modal to start.

Hot tip: I love to gift heavy absorbency leakproof underwear to new moms for those postpartum days. They’re perfect for recovery and beyond!

Different Cuts for Different Bodies

There are several cuts to choose from in the Knix everyday underwear lineup. They offer thong, cheeky, bikini, boyshort, high rise, and french cuts. What’s the difference? Thongs are mid-rise and best for those who want to avoid panty lines. Cheeky is low-rise with less bum coverage without being in thong territory. The bikini is mid-rise with medium hip and bum coverage. Boyshort is mid-rise with extra coverage through the hip and bum. French is another mid-rise but has a high-cut thigh detail and offers more bum coverage than cheeky but less than bikini. High rise sits at your natural waist and offers medium bum coverage.

My personal favorites are the boyshort and higher cuts like french and high-rise. The main reason I prefer these is because they have more coverage in the front. They stay up on my belly and don’t roll down when I’m sitting or being active. I have a curvy midsection with thick thighs and a big butt (thank you Universe!). I find the bikini cut doesn’t stay as high up on my body as I would like, and the cheeky style isn’t enough coverage for my bum. On my body, the thong and the boyshort stay in place.

The french cut is a sexy option even though it provides a good amount of coverage. The high-rise is my overall favorite but they sit so high that they will pop out the top of even your highest high-rise jeans—so you may want to reserve those for bedtime and dresses! All cuts are available with or without leakproof protection.

Knixy Lace Boyshort

This lace style seems like it wouldn’t be effective when it comes to the leakproof realm. But once again, Knix has achieved the seemingly impossible. The leakproof technology works wonders even with this sexy fabric mixed in. If you like the style but not the idea of a lace period mash-up, they also offer it in the essential (non-leakproof) lineup as well.

Super Leakproof Dream Short

Prepare to have your mind blown by the super leakproof dream short. These beauties are a nighttime game changer! The soft breathable fabric is the MOST comfortable when you’re feeling bloated and want to take a tub of ice cream to bed. The extra-long gusset will give you the sweetest dreams because there is no way you’ll wake up with anything on your sheets. They can absorb up to 12 tampons worth of liquid! Sleep easy, because they will absorb everything even on the most intense days of your period or through the hottest, sweatiest days of the year. Also, they’re kinda cute, right?!

Luxe Modal Leakproof High Rise

When I first saw this set, I immediately fell in love! The details on the waistband and bra gave me heart-eye emoji face immediately. Swoon! I hesitated to order it because I’ve never been a fan of the cotton modal fabric. But when it came out in the “Endless Sky” color for spring 2023, I knew I had to take a leap of faith.

I’m so glad I did because wow wow wow, these are unbelievable undies! The fabric is so soft, cloud soft doesn’t even begin to describe it. The matching bra is incredible for lounging around at home, while still looking super cute. It’s no secret that sets have been trending in fashion, and this is another set you should be sporting underneath it all! Act fast because Knix is constantly evolving their product offering and my intuition tells me these pieces aren’t in it for the long haul.

Everyday Essentials Underwear

The Knix everyday underwear has all the excellent fabric and fit of Knix leakproof underwear without moisture protection. In this line, the gusset doesn’t act like a pad. These underwear are so comfortable for everyday wear. I especially love the thongs or boyshorts when wearing pants, and the high-rise or french cut briefs when sleeping or wearing dresses.

Amazing Return Policy

Knix stands behind its products, so you don’t ever have to feel like you’re locked into a purchase you don’t love. This is one of my favorite things about their brand, though it is impossible to pick one or even just five of my favorite things about them. As you can see below, the entire page is clear and concise without any complicated jargon to confuse you (read in full here).

“All Knix Bras, Underwear, Tops (including Bodysuits), Shapewear, Masks, and Pads are eligible for return or exchange within 30 days of delivery. We want to make sure you can give your new Knix products time to mold to your shape and get comfortable. Do what you want to do in them, and wash them as much as you like. If you find the fit still isn’t right, message us to get a personal fit consultation before returning for the right size.”

Like hello!!! Take my money, please! It’s in good hands!

If you want to avoid making a return altogether, book a virtual fitting. I know it can sound intimidating to book a fitting when purchasing intimate apparel, but camera off is an option! The Knix team is incredible and will make you feel comfortable while finding your perfect fit.

Knix Bras Review

When I said I was a super fan, I meant it. If you think we’re even close to done chatting about the things I’ve tried, nope! But if this is TLDR (too long didn’t read), scroll to the bottom for a quick bullet list of my fave products without any in depth details.

As someone with a big chest and broad shoulders, bras have always been a challenge for me. Add three pregnancies and postpartum stages, and I had almost given up hope. My needs are lift and support without unnecessary bulk or discomfort. I’ve tried a few different wireless Knix styles, and this is how I’ve felt about each.

Revolution Bra

We’re starting with a bang! Knix revolutionized the period industry, and now they’re coming for bras! The Revolution bra is aptly named because it is everything you’ve ever wanted in a bra. The cut is so flattering, it works under the majority of clothing styles, and the comfort level is unreal! This is my go-to bra for all occasions. There is no underwire, but you still get lots of lift. The straps are adjustable and the back is the traditional hook and eye closure, so you can adjust no matter what changes your body may experience.

This bra has that simple t-shirt bra vibe with a sexy cool girl edge. They always have it in fun colors and patterns if you are looking for something a little more playful. This one cannot be missed. I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of the size of your chest or the shape of your upper body.

Revolution Shadow Mesh Bra

The Revolution Shadow Mesh Bra is the same but has a mesh detail in the cleavage. This gives it a bit of a sexier vibe, and the lace can pop out if you’re wearing a low v-neck. The detail is pretty enough to give the impression that it’s a lace camisole underneath. I have this one in the limited edition orchid color and love it for date nights or under a blouse.

Padded V-Neck Bra

The padded v-neck bra caught my eye because it has a very similar look to the Revolution bra but is a little more covered up. This style makes for a great everyday option and could become a staple in your wardrobe. The support is great, and the coverage is high but you could still easily wear it under any crew neck tee, and most higher v-neck shirts. If you’re larger-chested and intimidated by the Revolution, you could start here instead.

It is essential to wash and wear your Knix at a minimum 2-3 times before deciding on how you feel about the fit. I find they feel snug at first and make me question if I’ve ordered the right size. Everyone’s body is different, so whatever magic they use in their fabric will help the pieces conform to your body, but ONLY after a few wears and washes. Don’t fret—many of their products can be worn and washed and still returned! (I promise you, they’re not selling you washed and worn undies).

Wing Woman Contour Bra

When I first tried on the wing woman contour bra, I wasn’t into it. But then I tried it on with a few different outfits, I started to come around to it. It looked amazing under a turtleneck and made me feel empowered and sophisticated. I tried it under a few dresses and some blouses and ended up falling for it. If you wear a dressier wardrobe to your office every day, the wing woman might end up being your go-to bra during your 9-5.

One of my favorite features of this bra is how it has side panels sewn in to help hide that little fat pocket I have in my armpit. Glamorous, I know, but I am who I am!

Good To Go Seamless Bra

The Good to Go Seamless Bra is fairly similar to the padded v-neck but comes in a different fabric. Similar to the different fabrics offered in the underwear line, the Padded V-neck is closer to the nylon-spandex blend and this version is similar to the cotton modal. You can’t go wrong with either, but I prefer the smooth feel of the Padded V-Neck. Aside from the feel, I have noticed some pilling on my Good to Go Bra that won’t happen with the Padded V fabric.

One and Only Bra

This is the latest bra in the Knix lineup, and I can’t wait to give it a try! I haven’t received mine yet, but it’s on its way so stay tuned… 👀

Knix Swim Review

Check out both of these styles up close and personal in my Instagram reel review.

Classic One Piece

I am not the type to purchase a bunch of different swimsuits. I like to buy 1-2 quality ones to have as long as they last, and then maybe one cheap one to wear in highly chlorinated pools where they’re sure to be destroyed. When I found out that Knix made a timeless swimsuit that had leakproof protection, I knew I needed to have it!

The fabric is double-lined and has a bit of compression. They’ve done an amazing job of making you feel secure and tucked in without feeling tight or constricted. You get a surprising amount of support in the bust too, which makes this a great option when you’re getting active.

We go swimming a fair amount, and we head to the lake many times throughout the summer. Leakproof swimwear has saved me so much stress about dealing with periods and water. All of the Knix swimwear is thoughtfully designed so it doesn’t go out of style in one season. Perfection in my books!

Leakproof Sculpt High Rise High Cut Swim Bottom

In a million years I never would have thought I’d be ordering a two-piece swimsuit. But if there’s anyone who could convince me to do it, it’s Knix. I love this sporty style high rise high cut swim bottom that made history—as it was the first leakproof swimsuit to ever be featured in Sports Illustrated Magazine!

Scoop Bikini Top

The smart design of this scoop neck bikini top makes it look sexy while making you feel covered up and confident to move about. Regardless of whether you’re chasing kids at the park, playing beach volleyball with friends, or just trying to look hot, this swim top is it!

If these styles aren’t your vibe, they have many styles available to choose from. I love that they have inclusive sizing for all body types. Rock the swimsuits ladies! Don’t forget to use the discount code theautismeditxx to save 15% off your $120+ swimwear purchase.

Knix Activewear Review

Activewear has seemingly become an essential staple in everyone’s wardrobe. Not all activewear is considered equal, so here’s my take on the Knix activewear that I have tried to date. Since Knix is known for intimate apparel, let’s start with bras.

Catalyst Sports Bra

The Catalyst Bra is not a bra I naturally gravitated towards. I think my initial hesitation was that the design is a little too covered up for me. However, I have come to love the unbelievable support this bra provides throughout any activity.

The amount of lift you get in this sports bra is shocking. The straps are adjustable too, so it will maintain the fit over time. The traditional hook and eye band closure also ensures a long-lasting fit even as your body may change throughout a fitness journey. It holds everything in place even during the highest impact workouts or on runs. It looks great under all kinds of shirts and is comfortable enough that you could use it for regular daily use.

There are two different styles of the Catalyst Bra. One has all the traditional closures you’re used to. Straps that slide up and down, and hook and eye closures at the back. The front zip catalyst bra differs slightly because it has a front zip closure and the straps cross in the back. It does still have the hook and eye closure in the back, but you don’t need to use them. If you have mobility issues and want a more accessible bra, this might be a great fit. I’m wearing the front zip in a printed fabric in this reel.

My preference is the original style for two reasons. First, I don’t find the cross straps to be as comfortable or as easy to adjust when wearing the bra. Secondly, I often can’t get the front zip to sit flat and it pokes out from under shirts or tanks. If you like exercising without a shirt on, the front zip is a cute detail. If you like to be a little more covered up or want to wear this bra daily, maybe skip that style. One caveat I must mention here is that my front zip Catalyst is getting old. Knix may have improved the top of the zipper, which is where I was having the issue of it being noticeable under shirts.

Hiking in the Momenta Bra and LeakStrong LeakProof Leggings

Momenta Bra

If you love a classic racerback sports bra, the Momenta is one you’ll want to add to your wardrobe. This is considered a medium support bra. I would say that’s accurate but also gives more support than I was expecting. The cups in this bra are so flattering, you won’t believe it’s a sports bra. The mesh detail under the bust is a true blessing for those of us who sweat a lot when active (that’s me!).

This is the best sports bra in that classic cut I’ve ever owned, and I’ve had many in my lifetime. I don’t know exactly what Knix uses for fabric, but they know what they’re doing! The way this bra hugs the body without digging in moves with you through any activity, and still keeps everything in place is mind-blowing! It’s a must-have if you wear sports bras on repeat. The only downside to this bra that I’ll mention is that it is so high-cut, that it may not work under a lot of your workout tops. If you have a racerback tank that you love to wear during a workout, I’m willing to bet you won’t be able to pair it with this bra unless you’re ok with a layered look at the neckline.

See me sporting mine in an IG reel.

Longevity Bra

The longevity bra is more like a standard sports bra style and should be considered activewear. It’s comfortable but it’s not for me as I prefer to have more support. My ribs are also very wide, so I find this bra rolls up when I’m sitting down for a long time. It’s not nearly as bad as some other styles like this I’ve tried, and that probably wouldn’t happen if I sized up. Still, it’s not my favorite and I won’t be re-ordering.

If you have a small chest, this one might work great for you. Especially for low-impact workouts or for lounging around the house. It’s long enough that you could wear it as a cute top too.

Good to Go Seamless Tank

The Good to Go Seamless Tank is not considered a bra by Knix, rather it’s a tank with a built-in shelf bra offering medium support. As soon as I saw this cute square neckline detail in combination with the length of the torso, I wanted it! It did not disappoint! Honestly, I am super impressed with the amount of support it does offer. I feel confident that I could wear this through any workout and not be focused on the bounce the whole time–you know what I mean, right?!

I don’t wear this as a shirt in public, but love wearing it with the hi-touch legging when I exercise at home. The fabric is a bit thicker than you may be expecting but does a good job of wicking sweat and staying dry. I was so impressed with how this stays put when you’re doing complex movements. I would order this again for sure, but I see it has moved to the sale section which could mean it will be discontinued soon. If you want to give it a try, now is the time. Especially while it’s on sale!

Hi-Touch High Rise Legging

Since the turn of the century, leggings have seemingly taken over the world. I am certain I don’t know a single soul that doesn’t have a pair or twelve in their wardrobe. So when a “new” style hits the market, it can feel like they’re overdone and the best have already been made.

My initial response when I saw the hi-touch legging on the Knix site was underwhelming. But I was so deeply in love with the Good to Go seamless tank I decided to give them a try. I am SO GLAD I did! When I first tried them on I was surprised at how fitted they were without digging into my love handles. It felt as if I should have sized up, but they were so forgiving that it didn’t matter. After a couple of washes—as promised on the tag—they started to conform to my body. It’s seriously like magic!

One thing I love is that the waistband NEVER rolls or slides down. I never catch a glimpse of my underwear peeking above the top or worry that when I squat my bum will be showing. They seriously don’t budge, no matter the activity! I also felt kinda meh about the lines on the sides of them, but I love how they are tone-on-tone with the fabric, so they visually blend while offering targeted support. I think they make my butt look more lifted AND they camouflage cellulite! 🎉

The fabric is almost a cross between thick opaque pantyhose and a swimsuit. It sounds horrendous, but it’s somehow the perfect blend. Another amazing perk is that Knix swears the fabric won’t pill. Say whaaat?! That’s amazing news because all my lulus look like garbage after a year due to excessive pilling and dog hair getting woven through the knit. Now that I’ve had these for over a year, I can attest that they do not pill! I wash mine on a regular cycle with warm water, and hang to dry. I would order this style again, and recommend you try it out for your next legging purchase.

LeakStrong Leakproof Legging

Similar to the Hi-Touch leggings, Knix has released a leakproof legging for your more intense workouts! I sweat A LOT (as seen in this IG reel right here) and these leggings don’t show a single drop of it. I’m impressed with the absorbency of these pants. They’re so comfortable to wear compared to a bulky pad or tampon, and they wick away far more moisture than those products could ever hope to.

These are ideal for gym workouts and outdoor hikes on hot days. You could pee your pants in these and no one would know. I’m not saying you should, just saying you could. 😆

Knix Loungewear Review

In a post-pandemic world we have gotten very particular about our loungewear, haven’t we?! Knix continues to nail it with fabric selections, making the brand a strong contender in an overcrowded space. The price point for the quality is great too. Here’s what I’ve tried so far.

Good to Go Fleece

Fleece is not a fabric I typically love as I find it doesn’t wash very well and can look worn out before its time. So far that hasn’t been the case at all with the good to go fleece crewneck. It has maintained its shape, color, and softness through multiple washes (but I don’t put it in the dryer). The same can be said for the matching joggers.

The fabric in this set has the slightest bit of stretch to it which adds to the coziness. This outfit is a constant in my cold weather school drop off wardrobe rotation. I love that I can easily break up the pieces and mix them with other basics too. The fit is slightly oversized without making you lose your shape entirely, and the pieces are easy to split up and style in different ways. I reach for this set enough that I’ll likely be adding the black set to my next Knix cart!

I’ve had other apparel pieces from Knix in the past, but at the moment they have all been discontinued or removed from the site. This post is often updated so keep checking back for future updates!

Knix Sleepwear Review

Given the quality fabrics, I have always wanted to give Knix sleepwear a shot. The first set I tried was the short sleeve modal top with the modal sleep pant, and they didn’t disappoint!

Modal Sleep Set

Maybe I have a strange addiction to fabric with stretch, but again… the stretch on these fabrics is perfection! Typically I would choose shorts for sleeping but in the winter months, it is essential to have a pant for lounging in. The modal sleep pant is the perfect solution. The stretch keeps you comfy and the breathability keeps your temperature regulated all night long. I’m 5’7″ and find the pants length to be perfect but if you’re shorter than I am they do have a cropped version as well as a shorts option if you prefer!

The matching top is the same fabric and fits well. I went with the short sleeve version so I could wear it with a cardigan or robe, but they do offer a long sleeve version too. I’ve also washed this set quite a few times now and it has held up. The seams are still intact, and they haven’t twisted—as can so often happen with lesser quality pjs. These are a great choice for something more luxurious but still on budget. They would make an excellent gift and would be great for a changing postpartum body since the stretch is so good.

Hold Me Nightie

The Hold Me Nightie gives so much support in the bust, it no doubt has the Knix seamless bra technology built right in. This style is sexy without being over the top so you could potentially wear it around the house on a warm summer morning whether you had guests or not. Wearing a bra to bed is a controversial topic — it can be a love hate relationship depending on your personal preferences. This nightie solves the issue because it doesn’t feel or look like a bra, but it provides enough support that you’ll sleep soundly all night long.

Limited Edition Holiday Sets (now 50% off!)

Since I was so happy with the modal set, I decided to treat myself to some holiday pajamas. The fleece is perfect for keeping me warm when I’m packing school lunches, but the dress and short styles keep me cool while I’m sleeping at night. I run hot while I sleep, so this is a must for me! I also love that the dress is a bit longer in the back while cut a bit shorter in the front. It adds coverage without adding too much warmth under blankets.

Knix fabrics never fail. They wash well and feel great. The short set t-shirt could make its way into your regular wardrobe it’s that good. Keep in mind with this set that the waistband is not elastic, it’s a string tie. You may want to measure yourself before ordering to ensure the perfect fit. You can now save 50% on all Knix holiday pjs—including family matching sets!

Knix Shapewear Review

For a company that empowers women to love their shape, I wondered what shapewear from Knix would be like. Would it suck you in and smooth you out? Or would it be more like a conservative layer so you can be assured not to show anything through a sheer blouse? Well, depending on which piece you choose, it’s both!

Thigh Saver Shorts

One of the things Knix is known for is the thigh saver shorts! They’re one of those classic items that will be a mainstay in the Knix offerings. If you have any issues with chaffing, these are going to be a lifesaver for you in warmer temps! This style comes in a 4″ or 6″ length. I wear the 4″ length as I generally wear above the knee dresses and don’t want the shorts showing when I’m sitting down or crouching to help the kids at the park.

I was skeptical that this style would work. I thought for sure they would roll up at the leg seams and roll down on the stomach — as that is my usual experience with any kind of shapewear. I was pleasantly surprised that didn’t happen! I think the key to ensuring it doesn’t happen is making sure you order the right size. This is where the Knix return policy comes in handy!

These shorts are in the shapewear category, but they’re not meant for tummy or thigh control. They’re strictly meant to help avoid uncomfortable thigh chaffing. Knix leveled up the thigh saver this year, and now offers a leakproof version! So you can skip the extra layer of undies even when you’re bleeding, leaking, or experiencing hot crotch summer!

LuxeLift Bodysuit

The LuxeLift Bodysuit falls into the non-compression category. So it too is not technically shapewear, but I treat it as such anyway. This bodysuit is meant to be worn like a tank top, or under an open cardigan. I never wear mine like that because I have a (discontinued) light pink color that shows all the lines of the built in bra and it just isn’t for me to wear that as a shirt. This may be less noticeable on darker colors, but if you zoom in on the model images on their site you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Overall, I don’t reach for this piece that much. There is no compression, so it does not provide the support of traditional shapewear. The bra is medium support, so I feel more supported in other bras like the revolution bra (reviewed above). However, from time to time when I want to have a little more structure but don’t want to feel like a stuffed sausage for an entire eight hour day, this bodysuit does the trick.

If you have a more casual wardrobe, the luxelift bodysuit could be a good option for you. Especially if the lines showing where the bra is built in does not bother you. It’s a nice bodysuit that is comfortable and stays in place. I think if it looked less like underwear and more like a traditional cotton tank bodysuit, I would wear it more often.

High Rise Shaper Brief

A long time ago I had a pair of shapewear from a rival (cough*Spanx*cough) company that were a very similar style to the high rise shaper brief. I loved them and thought this would be a very similar comparison piece. I had high hopes for this item, and I was sadly disappointed. Getting these on was a workout in itself—the compression factor is HIGH in these! It was very exciting to me, as my torso/tummy area is the part of my body I have the most issues with.

Initially, I thought these would be an everyday go to when I wanted a more tailored look or needed a little extra confidence when it came to pulling off a good t-shirt tuck. Maybe it’s that my torso is too long, but these just didn’t cut it. They stop at a very strange place, and because the compression in them is so good, it pushes the fat on my torso up, creating one big muffin top rolling up and out. Not the vibe!

The reason I loved the pair I had from the competitor was that it was long enough to tuck into your bra. It was the best of both worlds. Long enough to cover the entire torso without shoulder straps digging in, and no obnoxious bodysuit to contend with during bathroom breaks. If Knix could add a few inches to the top of this style I think it would be a winner. Or if you don’t have a lot of excess fat through your torso and just a slimming look under a more fitted outfit, this could potentially be great for you.

Shaper Bodysuit

After giving the briefs a try, I knew Knix would come through with some very smoothing, compressing shapewear. So I decided to give the Shaper Bodysuit a try. This one is a winner for me! At first, the shoulders and the crotch were a little tight, but after the first wash, that issue went away. If you’re finding it a little too fitted at the top and bottom, you can adjust the straps at the top and the closure at the bottom to give yourself a little relief.

This is definitely more like traditional shapewear, but it’s surprisingly comfortable. It also has a built in bra, and I didn’t have a lot of faith that it would give me the shape I typically like, but it delivered! There is a lot of support, and a fair amount of coverage, but not enough that it limits what you can wear over top of it.

Overall, I’m really happy with this bodysuit. It is my number one favourite for shapewear in my closet right now. I reach for it whenever I want a more tailored look, or need a little extra support when I’m feeling bloated. It’s a great investment piece if you like to wear shapewear on a fairly regular basis. Or, if you don’t and want to, the shaper bodysuit is a great intro to shapewear piece!

My Knix Wish List

Though I’ve tried many Knix pieces, there are still so many things I’m lusting after! The quality of everything I have, and the way they champion their products with their amazing return policy gives me so much confidence that my money won’t be wasted. My “would love to try” list includes:

Modal Straight Leg Pant

Gen Z has spoken and we all must abandon our skinny jeans without looking back. These straight leg pants are an effortless way to update your wardrobe from the tight fitting leggings that have reigned supreme over the last two decades. Though I haven’t personally tried them yet, they’re definitely on my wish list.

Waffle Knit Robe

A robe is a must-have when you live in a cold climate like I do. The cozy factor of this waffle knit robe takes it to another level. Knix has a knack for choosing the best fabrics on the market, and I’m willing to bet this is no exception. They often carry this robe but they alternate the colors depending on the season. The Glacier color pictured above is one of my faves!

Cotton Super Leakproof Boxer Brief

Ok, yes… When I first saw this style I did wonder how often these would end up in my husband or son’s drawer on laundry day. But then Knix came through with the best feminine colors for these boxer briefs. Maybe this cut does not appeal to you, but this with a white tee for a bloated lounge day speaks volumes to me! Another major bonus to these is that just like the dream shorts (which I love) these would be amazing to sleep in during the heavier days of your period. I exclusively put white or light sheets on my bed, so this added protection for my sheets is a win for me!

Sport Skort

This sport skort is perfection. I don’t golf or play tennis but I’m reconsidering my entire lifestyle so I can justify purchasing it. Though it comes in loads of different colors, I’m very drawn to this electric blue. White would be my second choice because my seven year old daughter has a white skort and it would be super fun to twin with her!

This skort also comes in a leakproof version. Even if you’re not using it for sport, you can still look cute and lose the fear that you’ll be exposed when a gust of wind blows through.

The Knix Ethos

I am a Knix loyalist. I am so passionate about getting value out of things regardless of what they cost. Though the price tag for Knix may feel high initially the value is there! You won’t regret your purchase. Especially if you read the many reviews on each product, are mindful of the return policy, and take advantage of their willingness to help you find the right fit.

Beyond products, Knix is so much more than a company trying to score your money. They do so much good in the world. They:

  • empower women by setting an amazing example of what we are capable of
  • reduce landfill waste with premium period products
  • are committed to providing you with a great experience and product
  • have a line dedicated to teens so they can navigate life with a period, without feeling like they’re wearing their mom’s old lady undies
  • charitable giving through the Knix Fund
  • gives children (and adults!) the opportunity to see models that aren’t altered to meet an unrealistic beauty standard
  • offer awesome rewards and incentives each time you purchase

You can’t go wrong with supporting Knix. You get amazing products, and they use your dollars for good. Their impactful campaigns (Big Strong Woman, for example), what they stand for, and how they provide community for all women.

  • I have 2 revolution bras and both have splits starting down the centre. I am small busted too. They are hand washed and hung to dry. Am I the only one that has experienced this?

    • Hi Carol, personally I have never experience this with Knix but that sounds very disappointing! I would reach out to their customer service with details. Sending in pictures of what may be a flaw or defect is always a good idea!

    • Hi Claire, during big sales like the current Black Friday promotion my discount code is sometimes paused. It will be active again once the sale ends. Sorry for the disappointment!

  • Hi! Do you still stand by this? I found your site looking for others’ reviews. I bought my first Knix in April and they’re already breaking on the seams. I don’t do anything they say not to. It’s really frustrating that I bought 5 pairs and spent so much and they didn’t last 6 months.

    • Hey Marianne,

      Yes I do still stand by this! I’ve had so many things from Knix that have lasted for years. I will say that I don’t put my stuff in the dryer (unless by accident and it’s still fine).
      I’ve also had really great experiences with their customer service, so if you did have issues with your product you should get in touch with them. I think they’d be happy to help find a solution!

  • I am looking for a wireless bra with support that doesn’t “smash” you like a tight sports bra. I always wore underwire but after a while it snaps or pokes a hole in the bra.
    Can’t stand when a bra rolls up or I have to keep pulling it down. I am full figure but C cup. Would appreciate a recommendation. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Tracy,

      I totally know what you mean about the “smash” of a sports bra. I hate that uni-boob look too! There are a lot of good options at Knix if you’re looking to replace your sports bra or everyday bra. My recommendation would be to check out the Catalyst and the Wing Woman Contour bras. They both sit so great and give a surprising amount of lift for not having an underwire. I would say the Catalyst is great for casual day-to-day wear, and the Wing Woman is better suited to office wear or v-neck/blouse type of tops. So it really depends on your wardrobe and needs. The Catalyst is marketed as a sports bra, and I completely understand why — it holds everything in place VERY well through any kind of movement! But honestly, I reach for the Catalyst almost daily no matter my activity level.

      If you’re wanting more of a traditional racerback sports bra, check out the Momenta sports bra. It has cups in it that give such a nice shape and lift. It’s also cut to be a bit longer on the torso, so I don’t find it rolls up. But I will say that will depend on the fit of the bra. So consider doing a virtual fitting before purchasing so you can make sure you’ll be happy with your purchase. Knix has amazing customer service, so I’m sure they will be able to answer all of your questions in depth and guide you to exactly the style and size of your dreams!

      All that being said, I haven’t personally tried the Revolution Bra, but I am dyyying to! It’s next on my list for sure. It seems to have my favorite features of both the Catalyst and the Wing Woman combined. I do love the Luxe Lift bra, but I would say that over time ALL bras stretch out. It’s just the nature of the fabric. So I prefer to have the adjustable straps so I can maintain the look I want over time. With the Luxe Lift, I lose a bit of lift after a while and wish I could shorten the straps once the fabric stretches a tad — but it’s a pull over bra so that’s not an option. But if lift doesn’t matter to you, that one is a great tshirt bra with a sports bra feel.

      No matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong. If you have anymore questions, let me know! And don’t hesitate to book that virtual fitting — I know it can feel intimidating but I trust Knix will put you at ease!

      • Cathy you told us on March 14 that theRevolution Bra is your favourite. On your March 25th response to Tracy you say you haven’t tried it.

        This is more sales than unbiased reviews.

        • Hi Lindy,

          Sorry for the confusion! The original post date of this blog is March 14, 2022. As I try more Knix products, I update the post but the date remains unchanged. After my comment to Tracy, I had the chance to try the Revolution Bra and updated the post to reflect that. It would have been in April, 2023, as I posted a review of it on Instagram at that time. It remains a favourite of mine! I hope that clears things up. If you have any other questions or comments, please let me know. Thanks!
