What It Is: More and more women are looking for eco-friendly alternatives to tampons and pads (guys, you can exit stage left if you’re already uncomfortable). Hence the rise in popularity of things like the cup. THINX has added their own product to the mix – a line of comfortable undies that can also provide period protection – up to two tampons’ worth per pair! With six different styles to suit your style and your flow level, you can mix and match THINX (which currently come in two colours per style) to create a cycle set. THINX panties are made from a unique fabric that absorbs your, ahem, fluids, keeping you totally dry, leak-free, and without that awkward ‘diaper’ feeling. Still anxious about this newfangled concept? You can always rock them as a backup pair with your other primary choice of protection, like a tampon or cup. Finally, some lingerie you’ll feel great about investing in!
Who It’s For: Your best friend, who loves to travel and could use these in a pinch. Your sister, who’s always in sync with your cycle. Yourself, cause you deserve some period peace of mind.
What It Costs: Each pair is $24-$38 USD, although if you buy multiples you save money. If you want to save $10 off your first purchase, use my referral link!
Where It’s At: You can nab THINX online here. And yes, they ship to Canada.
