I'm not going to lie, this is a weird blog post for me to write. But one of my hands down, newest, and most favorite products now is THINX Panties! They are period proof underwear. You can wear them AS your period protection. Yes you can! The different styles absorb different amounts. But those designed for heavy flow days, will absorb, into the panties, up to the equivalent of two tampons.
The moisture wicking material absorbs everything. (Okay, some of the unsightly stuff you can wipe away, but yes...everything else.) Odor free! No leaks! They have changed my world!
(There are lots of ! you can see! I really love these...since I have to deal with this anyway.)
You can also use them as backup if you just can't give into it freely, but you should think about it.
The styles come in every shape that you can buy panties. There is something for everyone.
They're easy to care for too. You rinse them out. (Sounds gross, but really isn't. Think about what you go through changing pads or tampons. Not much different.) You can hand was them, or wash them in with your laundry (sans softer) and hang them to dry.
Think about getting a few pair! Tell me what you think. I think you're going to love them.
