Getting your period for the first time is scary, confusing and overwhelming. I for one, am so grateful that there is a new option for us that doesn't require me to do anything other than just remembering to put them on. Behold, Period Panties.
New companies are popping up, offering girls a new alternative to regular underwear when we are on our periods. Most of them are "leak- proof" and some can actually replace pads and tampons.
Here is a list of awesome period panties!
Twin sisters Miki and Radha and their best friend Antonia spent three years creating THINX when they realized that retailers weren't actively making underwear that thought about a woman's monthly needs. Following revolutionary technologies, these comfortable panties are stain and leak resistant, absorbent, moisture-wicking, anti-microbial, breathable and washable. Partnered with AFRIpads, every pair of THINX you buy funds the production of re-useable cloth pads for a woman or girl in Uganda.
