Bleed for Women Empowerment! THINX is How Modern Women Do Periods
Though there have been great [economical, educational, and professional] strides made by women in society, people still get uncomfortable discussing their period. Or should I say menstrual cycle. So at the risk of making people uncomfortable, I am going to talk periods today... Because twin sisters Miki and Radha Agrawal and friend Antonia Dunbar, creators of THINX, wants to change the culture around your most normal time of month. THINX underwear, is a patented antimicrobial, panties with crotch lined with leak-resistant fibers that promise to absorb your menstrual blood as would two tampons or a pad. Touting that you won’t even feel it, leaving you feeling dry. The period panties is said to be self-absorbing and washable, and will eliminates the need for panty liners, or the worry about period stains - which would potentially be embarrassing. And for some, eliminate the need for pads or tampons.
Yes, I said it! An underwear that is period proof - protecting you from leaks that soil or discolor your most special intimates, and keeps you feeling dry. I wish I had a few pair of these last week.
The Thinx underwear which are machine washable, after a recommended hand-rinse; comes in two colors (nude and black); and three lace styles: Thong for light days ($24), Cheeky for medium days ($29), and Hiphugger for heavier days ($34).
Though these period panties cost a little more than their counterparts, each pair you buy help girls in the developing country of Uganda through AFRIPads. Uganda is a developing country where millions of girls fall behind in school only because their periods force them to eventually drop out. AFRIPads trains women in the country to make and sell affordable and reusable pads, keeping girls in school every day of the month.
