As a small, family-run business, WebUndies.com does a great job at exceeding customer expectations and treating everyone we deal with fairly, from vendors to customers and employees. Now, we are part of a group of businesses that feel we are on the verge of some very unfair treatment.
As large retailers like Amazon expand their businesses and open more warehouses, they are subject to collect sales tax in states where they are located. This was not an issue before they got to be so big and they delightedly sold products all over without collecting tax. Now that they need to start collecting tax, they seem to have “seen the light” and think it is fair for everyone to collect tax. After all, why should small businesses have any advantage?
We can tell you why! Sales tax codes vary not only state-to-state, but also from county to county and sometimes town to town. On top of that, the items that are taxed vary. For example, we sell clothing, which is not a taxable item in New Jersey, but is taxable in neighboring New York, though at different tax rates depending on where in NY you shop and live. Can you imagine the immense burden on small businesses like ours and many others?
We would need to hire an outside company just to manage tax collection and payment. That extra expense would mean we have less money to hire more staff or invest in our business. We would be happy to collect tax if it was simplified- why doesn’t our government consider that before placing the burden on the small businesses that support local economies? Shame on our elected officials for catering, yet again, to the voices of big business and the money they give to campaigns and lobbyists!

Around these parts, anyone with a 5-8 year old boy is likely to know a LOT about Lego’s Ninjago series of toys and animated shows. We were saddened to hear that Lego will be discontinuing the series later this year, to make way for Chima and all of the related marketing opportunities. (As a side note, all of our boys described Chima as lame or dumb when asked!).
Ever since we started carrying Ninjago pajamas and underwear packs for boys in early 2012, they have been flying out the door. You can see our current offering here: WebUndies.com Ninjago PJ & Undies. We have already secured our sons’ favorites before they are gone forever. Our last shipment comes in June and then, sadly, we will sell out never to restock. So… if you have a fan of Ninjago in your house, now is the time to get them PJs and undies! Ninja….GO!
As people who live and breathe underwear, we often forget that not everyone knows the ins-and-outs of undies. As we were putting some new Hello Kitty panties on the site, we thought it would be a good time to share what we know.
Two recent additions to our product offering are “boy shorts”. Why would you choose those over a boy brief or hipster panty? Boy shorts are typically made with a high Spandex content for a very snug fit and are usually flat- no edges or extras sewn on. This is to minimize the “lines” made by the panty through your clothes. They are a great choice for people who don’t wear thong underwear, but want a look without panty lines. They are not usually made with a high cotton content- another way to avoid bunching and help them fit to your form. Finally, boy short panties are also low-rise, so they do not tend to peek over the top of your pants (unless you wear ultra-low-rise- can’t help you there!).
WebUndies.com has over 40 styles of boy short panties in styles ranging from Hello Kitty to holiday patterns. Take a chance on them- you may discover a comfy new underwear style!
Our complete offering of Women’s Boy Short Panties can here seen here. Please keep in mind that many are Junior Cut sizing.
