Revolutionary period-underwear, THINX?
Let’s start at the beginning. Have you already heard about THINX period-absorbing underwear for menstruating humans? THINX undies use special underwear technology to absorb the blood from your period and keep you feeling dry. Use it instead of, or to back up, a tampon. I assume if you haven’t tried them yet, you might worryÂ they’re gross or think they’re too expensiveÂ since those were my two biggest concerns. After hearing multiple friends’ recommendations, I decided to give ’em a try anyway. To be sure about my strong opinions, I tested themÂ for about a year. Welp, I’m here to say it, you can believe the promise: THINX can back up or replace tampons, pads, or other stuff (if you’re into that), depending on your flow. If you use them regularly, these $20-$30 panties canÂ actually save you money.
THINX look totally normal but work like magic/science to prevent leaks and other embarrassments. I wear them just like regular underwear except I always rinse out at the end of wearing and toss them into the laundry or work sink. I use a lingerie bag to separate them out so I remember to hang them dry but otherwise, I wash them like — and with — everythingÂ else.
My friend tells me that because of her IUD, her flow is so light, she doesn’t want to bother with tampons, but still needs minor protection, so period underwear are the answer to her eco-friendly prayers.
Protip: Keep them in the bathroom drawer.
Because I’m a real investigator, I tried alternatives to THINX
Because I’m thorough, I also gave a generic off-brand amazon versionsÂ a try. Without being too graphic, they squeaked when I walked and made me feelÂ like I was wearing a garbage bag. F that. I threw them away after two tries, which was no bargain. While I encourage you to save a few bucks, I basically rage-quit all other brands.
