My Honest Review of Thinx Period Panties


The older I get, the heavier and longer my periods become. I got so tired of buying a variety tampons and napkins for my monthly week of hell so I decided to give period panties a try. I ordered from Thinx and here are my honest thoughts:

First let me say this, I bought period panties for the purpose of sleeping in them. I had recently invested in a nice mattress and bedding but I’m a wild sleeper. The thought of staining my nice things was taunting me.  After a close call, even with a pair of shorts on, I made the leap and bought the Thinx Boyshorts.

Click here for $10 off a pair of Thinx.

They’re extremely comfortable. I got a size Large (my hips are about 44″) and they fit perfectly. Nice and comfortable with  just the right amount of snug. They look like athletic shorts or regular boyshorts. You really could wear them around the house with a tee shirt and no one would know.

They’re great for sleeping in.  I waited till Day 2, my heaviest flow. I showered and got ready for bed and put on my Thinx.  While you can feel the initial wetness of the flow the panties quickly absorb it. It’s not like I’m sitting in a pile of mush. I slept like a baby. The next morning I got up and had my cup of coffee. I decided to take off the panties after 12 hours of wear and I had no issues and no leaks.

They’re a great back up plan.  When I would go to work I would do a tampon and then a pad for back up, in case of leakage. Even if you don’t want to take the leap of faith and risk a mishap at work with period panties by themselves, they are a good back up plan to tampons when you know you may have a busy day. 

They’re great for workouts. You can workout with confidence and comfort.

They’re easy to care for. I rinse mine in the shower with peroxide. It’s just a habit I do with bloody fabric its not a step you have to take. You just throw Thinx  in the washer in cold water and hang them to dry.

Period panties are an investment. I definitely wont be going through as many pads and tampons.

I honestly wish I would have bought them sooner. You should really try them out. Here is a coupon for you.

Have a better period,
