THINX are genius, washable and reusable undies to wear while on your period. Developed to be moisture-wicking, anti-microbial, leak-proof and super-absorbent, (some styles hold an up to 2 tampons worth of flow)!! From my own experience, I had zero leaks, no stains, they felt thin, comfortable, dry and soft as silk! No shit! I have SO many panties ruined by my period, and I hate wearing bulky panty-liners and pads.
I use THINX a few ways:
· Wear solo on the days when I think your period might start, am not certain
· Wear in conjunction with my diva cup for my heavier flow days
· Wear for extra protection for overnights
· Wear solo for light flow days
· Wear when I am going to be extra sweaty
I have had zero stains or accidents since using THINX!
First off, like most women, I can’t always calculate the exact day my period is going to start, so I wear THINX 1-2 days around my usual start-date, to avoid ruining my cute, regular panties. What is the point in having sexy undies if they’re just going to get ruined?!! I hate getting nasty brownish stains my panties, and I am pretty sure my ex boyfriend’s didn’t find it attractive either. Alas, these super gross 'period panties’ usually end up in the trash.
Secondly, I wear them on the first few days of my flow incase my Diva cup gets too full. (which rarely happens), but incase I am stuck somewhere, without a bathroom. I also wear them when I go to sleep, so I don’t ruin my underwear or my 800 thread count sheets. ;)
Lastly, I use them on my lightest days without anything else at all. THAT’S RIGHT LADIES! you do NOT need to wear anything but these THINX. They have an incredibly, innovative fabric that wicks the blood away, so you are dry. I also wore THINX underwear when I was super sweaty while hiking in Asia. That’s right, they’re excellent underwear for days when you’re just going to be sweaty as hell and don’t want your undies to feel wet
Kudos to the founders, Miki Agrawal, her sister Radha and Antonia Dunbar for being amazing badass women entrepreneurs who are disrupting the industry, breaking status quo, and making it cool for women to discuss their menstrual cycle without embarrassment!
Plus, for every pair of THINX you buy, they send funds to, AFRIpads, a local company helping women in Uganda. Studies say that 100 million girls are missing school just because of their periods, and THINX is looking to change that!
