This event is called School Rules, so naturally, I am featuring products that make the whole school process less stressful and smoother overall. When I discovered Thinx I knew it was something that every(pubescent and older) girl should have.
While this is a sensitive subject for some, I felt this product needed to be shared with the world. Thinx are thoughtful underwear with hidden powers. Honestly, they are amazing. Thinx Underwear have an absorbent layer that holds up to 6 teaspoons of liquid.
Thinx are stain resistant, leak resistant, moisture-wicking and Anti-Microbial. Just think about that for a minute. Thinx handle the menstrual cycle like no other product can. It absorbs the liquid, and wicks it away so you stay dry, resists leaking and staining to keep you feeling protected and confidant, a feeling that only gets better as the Anti-microbial properties mean no odors.
Not only will the special features of these underwear make you feel great, but the underwear themselves are so pretty. With all the amazing benefits, I had expected to have to compromise in at least one area, and I figured it would be style, but they are just a beautiful as any regular, "dumb" underwear.
Anyone who has ever had to deal with the horror of the Monthly Visitor knows how awful it is, and they know the fear of not being prepared for an early visit. Add that to being in school at the time, and you have a nightmare of epic proportions. Like school is not stressful enough for older girls. Trying to fit in, be confidant, plus be on top of their studies.
No one wants to wear traditional feminine care products just in case. It's cad enough wearing them when you need them. With Thinx, you can be prepared all day, every day and no one ever has to know. You will have all the comfort and style of regular undies and all the confidence of knowing you are prepared.
Thinx come in 4 lovely styles: Thong(for lightest days), Cheeky(for light days), Luxe(for medium days) and Hiphugger(for heavy days). I have the Luxe ones and I positively adore them.
As great as Thinx are for helping make school a little less stressful for girls here in America, they do much more than that. For every pair of Thinx you buy 7 reusable pads are donated to a girl in need.
In the developing world, most girls do not have access to feminine care products. This is a huge issue, because these girls have to try to find other ways to protect themselves during that time of the month. Things like rags and leaves and other harmful materials are tried. In many cases, girls simply have to miss school during their cycle or leave school early(drop out), which is detrimental to their education and to the earning potential that could help bring their communities out of extreme poverty.
So for every pair of Thinx you buy, you are essentially helping one girl stay in school and make the most of the education offered. That is HUGE. Something as simple as buying a pair of incredible underwear for yourself can actually change a girl's life. That is pretty powerful.
You can check out the She Thinx Mission for more information and startling statistics.
This is such an important issue, and it is so easy to help yourself and help those far less fortunate. I am just so in love with the Thinx concept, and I love my pair of Thinx. I need many more pairs of these incredible underwear, and think that every girl and woman does as well.
I have the great pleasure of helping one lucky lady discover Thinx. Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a love pair of Luxe underwear from Thinx. Good luck.
