WOMENS HEALTH - November, 2015
Have you heard about a special underwear made just for when Aunt Flo comes to visit? In this issue of Women's Health . . . "If you’re not familiar with the brand, THINX are underwear specifically designed to be worn during your period. They have a special lining in the crotch that is extremely absorbent (but not padded or diaper-like in any way). They're also moisture-wicking, anti-microbial, and leak-resistant, so there’s no need to use any additional tampon, pad, or panty liner."
"They come in a variety of styles: thong, hiphugger, sport, boyshort, and "cheeky." And in terms of price? Well, if you take into account that the average woman spends thousands on tampons in her lifetime, the $24-$32 per pair price of Thinx (which you wash and reuse) makes them a cost-efficient no-brainer in my book, says the author. Also, you can just buy these bad girls online at shethinx.com, so there's no need to hoof it to the drug store in the middle of winter to replenish your tampon supply". . .
The women behind Thinx - Miki Agrawal, her twin sister Radha, and their friend Antonia Saint Dunbar - aren’t just invested in making period technology that benefits their buyers. They also want to help women for whom periods are a disrupter of everyday life. For every pair of Thinx purchased, seven washable and reusable pads are sent to a woman in Africa so she can be better-equipped to manage her period and pursue her life goals. Not only that, but Thinx are made by women in a family-run factory in Sri Lanka that prides itself on helping its employees achieve educational and economic success. So you know, this is a pretty rad company doing some awesome things for women—major bonus points for that.Thinx website they say. . ."Well, every pair of THINX has a top layer that wicks all liquid into the über thin absorption layer right beneath it, so that you feel super dry. This way, you can wear 'em all day long (i.e., no, you don't have to change them during the day, no, they don't feel like diapers, and no, it's not like sitting in your own blood). Boom."
I'm not sure I would tell my Nieces to get online and purchase a multitude of these panties just yet. Since I have no use for this item 'cause I am free of all this drama, what do You think of this product?
Thanks for Visiting!
