I've ordered two mystery packs and have been SO satisfied, I feel the need to add a mystery pack on every BY order I place. The only thing better than receiving a BY package in the mail, is receiving a BY package in the mail and not knowing what magic is inside! I have been so satisfied with both of my Mystery Packs (purchased at two different times in the past year). I scored two of the most buttery soft spacedye leggings in my Mystery Packs + two luxuriously soft flowy yoga tanks. All four items I never would have thought to purchase myself but LOVE them and wear them regularly. Cannot recommend this fun surprise enough!
Oh my gosh, these pants are amazing! I love the way the hug my body, they are really flattering and comfortable. I must have had at least 10 compliments in the hour I was at the gym. They are adorable! Highly recommended!
"Will probably buy all of my BY items this way now!"
I decided to give this a try since all of the other reviews were positive, and I wanted to add some styles and colors that I don’t usually pick for myself. I was so impressed! I received a tank top (tag said it is priced at $68) and high-waisted midi pants (no price tag, but they usually go for ~100), so it was definitely a great value. There are two major caveats that some buyers may want to consider, though:
1. This could be a fluke or just that many of BY’s items have cutouts and interesting styles, but both of my items were a bit more revealing than I’d buy for myself. The back of the tank top was split vertically halfway up, so you could see my lower back. Not a huge deal if you wear high waisted yoga pants, but I could see some people not feeling comfortable wearing something that revealing. The yoga pants also had an interesting “corset” like back on the waistband, so again more exposure than I’d prefer. If you’re someone who likes to be more covered, this may be a bit of a risk.
2. My chest is fairly average-sized, so I usually don’t have an issue fitting into different styles of tops or sports bras. If you’re heavier-chested, though, you may get stuck with something thats not supportive or that may leave you feeling overexposed. I find that I can wear the same size in all BY bottoms and not have any concerns, but tops may be a hard judgement to make just because they vary so much in style and support.
TLDR: Am inexpensive way to get some great new pieces at a fraction of the cost. If you’re picky about styles or otherwise vary in terms of sizing based on the style, though, this may be a gamble. With that said, each of my items individually sell for more than the mystery bag price, so even if one item was a disaster I wouldn’t feel totally bummed.
