If you've started to think about how periods are a bloody nightmare for the environment, then these period-proof undies are a great solution to having a more eco-friendly menstruation. They look and feel like regular underwear, but can hold up to 2-days tampons' worth!
They can be worn as a back-up or replacement to traditional period products, depending on your flow (light, medium or heavy). It can replace pads and liners, or be worn with tampons and cups for extra protection.

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.
