It's heartbreaking to remember all the cute pairs we've thrown out because of period stains.
Clearly this is a crisis of epidemic proportions.
Unfortunately, pads and tampons can't always battle Aunt Flo, and many women end up ruining not only their underwear but the seat of their trousers, too. Clearly, the women behind Thinx share our pain and decided to do something about it. Welcome the knickers of our dreams!
Thinx underwear is designed to "wick away moisture," absorb up to six teaspoons of liquid, and prevent any embarrassing leaks. They're also downright cute and sexy!
Prices range from $24 - $47 but we think the smart technology makes the expense totally worth it. Plus every pair you buy, seven reusable AFRIPads will be given to a young girl in a developing country. We just hope they launch in the UK soon!
