Weekly Ponderings #6: washable, reusable period-proof undies
Hello friends! I'm spending the next few days in Cape Cod on a family vaca with the entiiiire caravan: mom, dad, two sisters, brother-in-law, niece, husband, mother-in-law, and dog. I plan on reading lots, lounging, and soaking up the last few days of summer ☀️. I'm not the best at completely unplugging from work, but I've gotten better at it over the years (will write a blog post about this topic w/tips another day).
brb while I go turn on my OOO...
I finally gave these period-proof undies from Thinx a try this week and am sold. They're washable, reusable undies that absorb your period. How do they work?! I'm still not sure. But depending on your flow, Thinx can replace or supplement your pad/tampon/cup usage.
I bought the hiphuggers style, which apparently holds 2 tampons' worth. I wore them on day 2 (light day) instead of liners and day 4 (medium day) instead of pads, and it was a no-leakage success! They're not cheap (~$35/pair), but you save on pads/tampons and you stop ruining your undies.
Here's a link to get $10 off your first purchase. They have a 60-day money-back guarantee, free shipping on first orders, and free returns. So...you've got nothing to lose.
Give them a try and lemme know what you think!
