These period-proof undies are making waves worldwide


Tired of throwing out your fave pair of undies because your period leaked on them again? We Thinx, er, think we found a solution. And it’s better than anything you could’ve imagined. 

Thinx underwear are super absorbent and come in three specially designed styles for the different stages of your cycle (meaning your light, medium, and even heavy flows are covered!). While they don’t replace tampons (only panty liners), you’ll never have to throw out your underwear because of blood stains again. After you wear a pair, simply toss them in the washer and they’re as good as new. Seem too good to be true? They're real, we promise. 

What’s even better is that Thinx has partnered with AFRIpads, a company located in Uganda that helps local women become entrepreneurs by teaching them to create and sell reusable cloth pads. Those sustainable pads are both affordable and available to some of the 100 million African girls who typically miss up to 11% of their school year because of their period. So by purchasing a pair of panties, you’ll help Thinx donate money to cover the cost of seven pads to AFRIpads.  Solving your lady problems while empowering other girls?  Yes please!

The ladies who founded Thinx started with a simple idea that is now making a global impact. Just think—what can you do to change the world?
