The period-proof undies that will give you total peace of mind
There’s no skirting around it – periods suck hard. As well as the myriad of physical and emotional pain that they tend to bring, they also come with the added paranoia of leakage. Nothing ruins your vibe quite like worrying that you’re walking around with a patch of blood on your pants, and up until recent times it’s just been a constant gamble. One brand working to change this is Thinx, coming in hot with a two-fold mission of empowering customers and creating sustainable alternative period products – all while breaking taboos around something that about half the world’s population experiences.
Thinx may sound too good to be true, but it’s all legit – and the way that they work is quite extraordinary. The technology behind the Thinx range is four-fold – you’ve got moisture-wicking cotton for softness and breathability, an odour-fighting lining to stop the dreaded period smell, a super-absorbent fabric that holds up to two tampons’ worth of menstrual fluid, and a leak-resistant barrier to keep you feeling totally confident. Not only will Thinx give you some relief from the constant feeling that you’re walking around with potential leak, but it’s a much better solution for the environment – not to mention all the money you save on tampons.
When it comes to styles, Thinx has got a great range of solutions depending on where you’re at in your cycle and what sort of fit you prefer to wear. The originals range has cuts in brief, bikini and thong styles, all capable of holding at least half a tampon’s worth of fluid – so whether you’re after a full-on replacement for sanitary products or just a bit of extra security, the brand has got you covered. Thinx also has a rad activewear range featuring training shorts, a leotard and a unitard, so you can work out with total confidence and keep kicking ass without your period holding you back.
Want to see what all the fuss is about? You can order Thinx through the brand’s official online store – and there’s a 60-day money back guarantee if you’re umming and ahhing.
