Please use the size chart to get your correct size, they should fit snug to prevent leakage. Measure yourself at the widest part of your bum to get the correct hip measurement.
It took a while for me to decide to just go ahead and get two pairs to test, but for once I got the right size from the start. Even better: both the hip hugger and the sport pants turned out to be the perfect fit for me! I will get some extra as soon as I can, even though I managed to go the full week just with the two of them, washing (by hand when no other laundry needed to be washed) every day. Just couldn’t go back to the old way of producing waste.
Also: this all makes me extra super happy that I paid one forward. Everyone deserves to not worry so much when on their period.
I have been using menstrual cup for 20 years. But I wanted something different for night or light days. This is so much better than reusable pad. It is comfy, doesn't stain. My only little concern is it stay wet for a few minutes after you bleed. But really happy with it. I will get another pair for sure.
I'm just more of a high-waisted kinda girl. These feel a little thicker than the hi-waist briefs and don't sit as snugly around your body. Still, they stayed put all day (no wriggling panty lines) and did the job without any issue. Just like wearing bikini bottoms under your jeans, so not too thick atall, and I'm sure plenty of people prefer a lower waist. Size guide on the Thinx site is very useful because it includes a round-the-butt measurement.
I was hesitant about trying these but after seeing so many positive comments about them on social media, I decided to give them a try. Wow! I am a total convert! I tentatively tried them on a day I expected to be light but it turned out more like medium. The pants did their job and there were no issues whatsoever. I felt comfy, secure, clean and dry all day. One of the things I was worrying about was rinsing and cleaning them but this was no big deal at all. In fact, it was immensely satisfying as it made me realise what a good job they'd done! Size-wise, I'm a 12 and ordered a Medium which was perfect. I'm now planning to buy enough pairs with different levels of absorbency to cover my whole period so I don't have to use tampons and towels ever again. These would have also been amazing to have after giving birth when there's a lot going on and you just need to be comfy. I am obsessed and singing their praises to anyone who will listen!
I have owned my Thinx for over a year now and they have been brilliant! I don't have particularly heavy periods and these have been full proof. I can wear them for up to 8 hours and they are really comfortable and the style is very discreet. Following the care instructions they have washed and lasted really well.
