Period Panties Exist, Finally!

These are amazing!

Ladies, meet the most thoughtful line of underwear.

THINX is a company that produces self-absorbing panties that eliminate the need for pads and tampons, giving every woman worry-free periods.

The company has created a line of underwear that is described as “moisture-wicking, anti-microbial, absorbent, and leak-resistant.” The panties come in three different super sexy styles and you can select one depending on how heavy your flow is.

For heavy period days, go for Hiphugger, which can hold up to two tampons' worth of blood. For medium flow, wear the Cheeky panty, as it can do the work of one tampon. And by last few days of your period, go for a sexy thong, which can absorb half as much blood as a tampon can.

As you may have probably assumed, THINX undies are reusable and washable. Just hand-wash prior to popping them into the washing machine. (For more FAQs, visit this page!).

This is what pushed the New York-based company to team up with AFRIpads, a non-government organization in Uganda that manufactures affordable, reusable, and washable sanitary pads for women in need. For every pair of THINX that is purchased, seven pieces of reusable sanitary pads are manufactured for a woman in Africa.
