A new line of underwear called THINX has come out, and it isn’t just any old panty line. The underwear is designed to be worn while on your cycle…without any additional protection. Now, the company only recommends this on your lighter flow days, but says that some women have been able to wear them their entire cycle.
That’s right. No tampons, no bulky pads and no complicated cups. Just one pair of panties.
Yes, they even have thongs.
How does it work?
The material is very absorbent and can hold up liquid in the amount of two tampons. The fabric is also composed of moisture-wicking material. Similar to that which can be found in workout gear. They’ve even made claims that the underwear is completely leak resistant. So much so, you could wear white pants. Oh and there is an added silver technology to ward off bacteria.
As for the all-woman team who created this magical underwear, they see their bigger mission as taking the stigma out of menstruation;
“We see a world where no woman is held back by her body. We will work proudly and tirelessly until every single girl has an equal opportunity for the brighter future she deserves.
By reimagining feminine hygiene products to provide support, comfort, confidence, and peace of mind, we aim to eliminate shame, empowering women and girls around the world.”
Amen to that!
So think you’ll give it a go?
