Thinx: Period-proof Underwear

More environmentally friendly alternatives for period pads have always been in discussion. When I first saw the advert of Thinx, I had my doubts. Thinx produces underwear, of which the top layer of fabric absorbs any liquid into the thin layer underneath. So.. underwear to replace pads!? Out of curiosity I decided to try it out. I bought their “hiphugger”, which is supposed to hold up to 2 regular tampons worth of blood. I wore it on the second day of my period when my flow was heaviest. I had it on the whole day through my sleep till the next morning. Wow. No leakage and no bulky feeling at all!

Due to thicker fabric compared to normal underwear, it took quite a while to air dry. I suggest buying 2-3 pairs for your period days. Also, after wearing it for around 15 hours, it does have the smell of blood towards the end. So I would suggest wearing them around 10-12 hours and take a shower to freshen up!

一直以來都不少關於更環保的女性衛生用品替代品的討論。當我第一次看到Thinx的廣告時,我是真的不太相信。 Thinx是生產月經內褲的,他們的設計使頂層布料吸收液體到下面的薄層布料。出於好奇,我決定嘗試一下,並買了“hiphugger”款式,據說能夠容納2個衛生棉條的血液。我在我的月經流量最多的第二天穿上了它一整天直到第二天早上睡醒。哇!真的沒有洩漏、沒有笨重的感覺!
