In the company’s own words, “the customer is at the heart of everything we do.”

So, how do we know that you’ll love Mey? 

As it turns out, there are several reasons you might fall in love with this brand:

  • Mey products are high-quality and comfortable. You can rest assured that their bodywear will feel great and is durable.
  • They only use the most luxurious materials. Mey sources its prized pima cotton directly from Peru. Not to mention all products are made with care and attention to detail.
  • Mey dedicates itself to environmentally conscious manufacturing. Few companies go to such great lengths to ensure their manufacturing is done responsibly. Mey has even won awards for its sustainability.
  • Their bodywear looks fantastic on you. Whether form-fitting or flowing, Mey products are sure to bolster your confidence.

Sustainability: More Than a Trend

For this brand, it’s not enough to sell excellent bodywear. They also want to make their products in a way that’s responsible and ethical.

One key way Mey stays environmentally friendly is through hummus.

Yes, you read that right!

Through a partnership with Positerra, Mey sponsors farmers throughout Germany in the production of hummus. In doing so, they offset the CO2 created in their regional manufacturing while supporting environmentally friendly agriculture.

But their commitment doesn’t stop there.

The company also raises several colonies of bees on their company grounds in Albstadt, Germany. Which is more critical now than ever as bee populations continue declining. 

Mey ensures their manufacturing follows this same conscientious philosophy. Virtually all of their raw materials are organic and completely renewable

So, when you buy from Mey, you’re not only getting a top-end product. You’re also contributing to sustainable business practices that improve the environment. 


How Mey Bodywear Gets Made

Mey doesn’t take any shortcuts when it comes to its products.

The primary component of most of their top bodywear is Peruvian pima cotton. Which many consider the most high-quality cotton thanks to its long and silky fibres.

In addition to using this coveted material, Mey ensures the cotton is entirely hand-picked and manually sorted. That way, only the finest and most durable cotton gets used.

From there, Mey produces their own fabric using state-of-the-art knitting machines located in Germany. This material is then further processed and inspected by hand.

The resulting textile is equal parts supple, durable, and cosy.

Finally, Mey’s expert sewists set to work putting it all together. And with a relatively high 13 stitches per centimetre, their clothing balances supreme comfort with elasticity.

The end product is an ultra-premium garment that is sure to satisfy. (You can even have your initials hand-embroidered on certain items to personalise them!)

Mey Brand: Success Story

Mey didn’t become the global success it is today overnight. 

Founded by Franz Mey in 1928, Mey was initially dedicated to making hosiery for women. But as the years rolled on, their specialisation shifted to women’s underwear.

However, the success of Mey isn’t only in undergarments. In fact, they made several innovations to the craftsmanship of sewing as a whole.

Their most notable accomplishment in this respect was the seamless finish (check out this fantastic camisole for a perfect example!).

Removing the noticeable seam typical on their competitors’ undergarments gave Mey’s pioneering products a unique advantage. The design made their bodywear more comfortable and form-fitting, and less noticeable.

Now, companies worldwide utilise this innovation in their sportswear, bras, and other clothing.

Over time, Mey began branching out more. They started producing men’s underwear in 1984, which quickly became a popular product. 

And in 2007, the introduction of elegant Mey lingerie to their catalogue broadened the brand’s appeal even further.


Mey Brand Today

Mey is now one of Europe’s most acclaimed bodywear brands. It’s synonymous with unparalleled comfort and luxurious quality. 

They have won several awards thanks to the excellence of their clothing. Such as the 2018 TextilWirtschaft Forum Prize and TOP MARKE for women’s underwear.

Today, this family-owned company also operates the world-renowned Sewing Machine Museum in Germany. Because at Mey, tradition is just as important as innovation.

While the brand is most renowned for its women’s underwear, the promise of quality extends to every product. In their catalogue, you can find pyjamas, tank tops, bras, and so much more.

And don't think for a second that Mey's fame in the female department means they're not here for men, too! In fact, here at SocksFox, we see almost as many men end their hunt for high-quality, innovative clothing at great prices with Mey products.

Colour swatch samples and photographs are provided as a guide only.

When processing your payment you can choose to pay in an alternative currency, to GBP.

The prices on our website are the same whether you purchase from within the United Kingdom (UK) or from outside of the UK. Within the UK all prices include VAT. For purchases made outside of the UK prices do not have VAT included; the item price you see is the price you will pay.  

All purchases must be paid in full before dispatch. SocksFox will continue to own, and reserve the right to repossess any goods sold from the website until payment has been received and cleared in full.

If the product's correct price is higher than that stated on the website, we will contact you for instructions before dispatch.


7. Dispatch and Delivery

SocksFox aims to dispatch items the same or next working day. If demand exceeds our stock holding dispatch may be delayed by around 7 working days. If this applies to your order or there is an availability issue we will be in touch by email. At SocksFox, offering an extensive range of styles, colours and sizes at competitive prices to customers in both the UK and Worldwide is what sets us apart from many other retailers. To be able to do this we are unable to hold in stock all items all of the time and in our experience most customers are happy to wait. If immediate dispatch is a priority for you please contact us for current availability.

The postal service selected to deliver your order will be the best one to ensure a successful delivery and a signature may be required as part of that service. All packages are sent using a tracked service. Information on how your package is progressing can be obtained by contacting the SocksFox Customer Service Team.

Estimated Delivery Times: UK Standard Delivery: 2-3 working days; Europe Standard Delivery: 5-7 working days; Rest of the World Delivery: 8-13 working days.

For packages being sent to Europe and the Rest of the World once a package arrives in the destination country for many orders the national postal service will complete the final delivery. If your order has not been delivered by 10 working days from the date of dispatch, 15 working days for Europe & Rest of the World, please contact us and we will look into what has happened to your package.

Whilst most International deliveries are made successfully within the above timeframes unfortunately this is not always the case due to circumstances outside of our control. Sometimes delivery may take up to 6 weeks and for this reason a package is not deemed to be lost until 6 weeks from dispatch have passed.

Non delivery of a package (UK or International) cannot be investigated after 10 weeks from the dispatch date due to carrier tracking limitations. SocksFox will not provide a replacement package or refund if first contact has not been until after 10 weeks from dispatch. 

Any delivery dates are given in good faith. Zapzero Ltd accepts no liability for delays resulting from occurrences outside its control. These include, but are not limited to acts of God, strikes, lockouts and delays by suppliers. Your products will be dispatched to the shipping address as stated in your order confirmation email. It is your responsibility to ensure the shipping address for this order is correct.

It is the customer's responsibility to inform us of any change of delivery address immediately. Unless instructed otherwise your order will be dispatched to the shipping address as shown in the order confirmation email you will have been sent.  SocksFox accepts no liability for dispatch made to the wrong address. Please note that if you request delivery of your order to a designated place (for example in the porch, by the green bin, over the hedge) for if you are out when delivery is attempted and subsequently the order goes missing SocksFox does not accept responsibility for non-receipt.

If delivery of an order is not achieved due to refusal at the delivery destination as nominated by the customer, when the shipment is returned to us a charge will be deducted from your refund to cover any return costs incurred by us.

Please note that due to U.S. Trademark Restrictions we are unable to sell any Burlington items to customers with a U.S. shipping address.

8. Customs

For items ordered for delivery overseas you as the recipient are deemed the importer and you may be liable for local customs, import duties or taxes ('duty'). The amount of duty depends on the type and value of goods and some items can be imported without paying any duty.

For all packages destined for delivery outside of the United Kingdom it is a legal requirement that SocksFox declares the full value of the goods (not including delivery costs).

Each country's customs policies are different and you should contact your local customs office for more information. Any additional costs for clearing customs must be paid by you. Unfortunately we have no control over these costs and cannot predict what they may be.

SocksFox will not be responsible for any local customs, import duties or taxes that may be levied when the goods enter the country of destination.

When returning any goods from overseas, please clearly mark the package on the outside with 'RETURNED GOODS' Unfortunately if any incoming customs charges are incurred as a result of this message not being added a charge will be deducted from your refund to cover the costs incurred by us.

If delivery of a shipment is not possible due to import duties not being paid, when the shipment is returned to us a charge will be deducted from your refund to cover any return costs incurred by us.
