“Oh yay, my Shark Week is here,” said nobody ever. Who would willingly deal with intense period cramps, bloating, and a generous smattering of acne across our faces every month? And not to mention the possibility of leakage. How many of you have gotten upset over a ruined garment because of a heavy flow?
Well, you are not alone. The people behing Thinx have launched a revolutionary “period-proof underwear that protects you from leaks and keeps you feeling dry”. No, we’re not talking about regular sanitary underwear you wear during your period, but actual period panties that completely replace the need for pads! Say what?
You can choose from 3 styles (thong, cheeky, and hiphugger) according to your flow and preference. For example, a “Cheeky” holds up to 1 tampon’s worth of blood. They recommend that you use these period panties together with your usual tampons or menstrual cup for a leak-proof experience.
Apart from creating a mind-blowing product, Thinx is determined to do good and contribute to society. In their words, “Every Thinx purchase has the power to help a woman in Uganda.” That’s right, part of their proceeds from the sale of Thinx underwear will go towards helping women in Uganda set up their own business and become self-reliant.
Isn’t it great to be able to contribute to a great cause while getting a revolutionary product in return? For now, prices range from $24 to $34, and they are available on www.shethinx.com. The website provides a clear explanation of how the period panties work, along with useful diagrams. There’s also more information about their charity work in Uganda, so do check that out and show them some support!
