What I Think of THINX

I received an item from THINX for the sole purpose of this review

What I think of THINX Hiphugger

When I first saw THINX  the idea really scared me for some reason. I'm not sure why as I've been using reusable pads and a cup for around 7 years now. The thought of Period Underwear was just a new concept for me. I even said to myself at one point (or more than one) "I'll never try those, how weird." and yet, here I am. I've been using my Sport and Thong style now for almost 2 years and I've fallen SO in love with them it's ludicrous. But I wanted to try the Hiphugger style next and was elated they decided to work with me again!

So you may be wondering, "What are THINX?" They are underwear that come in 6 different styles, they have an absorbent inner to absorb your cycle. They do NOT feel wet when you're wearing them and they absolutely replace the need for tampons and pads. 
They are moisture wicking, anti microbial with an invisible silver lining (see, there is a silver lining to your period!), absorbent and leak resistant. Sounds too good to be true right? 

So I put them through the full test. I wore the hiphugger on my heaviest day of my cycle (can hold up to 2 tampons worth!) and it lasted all day for me with no issues. I felt dry the entire time, they felt like regular underwear. I didn't feel like I was wearing a diaper and I LOVE the coverage that they offer in the absorbent layer. And I didn't have any leaks. By this point I was already a convert. I was totally amazed.

 Hard to see since they're black, but the inner layer covers a VERY large area and will protect you against leaking through.

I already have the Sport (holds up to 1.5 tampons worth) and the Thong (holds up to 1/2 a tampon) and I love those and I'm so happy I've added to the lineup. Both the Hiphugger and Sport I can wear all day without issue (about 12 hours), even though I'm a heavy bleeder. The thong is great for those days when I spot or the very last day of my period and this too can last me around 10-12 hours because my cycle is SUPER light then.

On my heaviest day I don't like to go without a cup, I hate wearing a cloth pad all day and feel like I change it a few times because I feel wet. But these THINX underwear worked perfectly and I don't feel wet at all. 

These really have changed my life and I will definitely be buying more. I'd like to buy more of the Hiphugger, Sport, Cheeky and Thong so I have a variation of absorbencies. 

I also love these for that idea of not knowing when your period will start, so throw on a pair before you leave the house JUST IN CASE!

They are easy to care for as well. Rinse them out as soon as you take them off in cold water. Cold wash (NO SOFTENER), hang dry!

THINX also has a sister company Icon and they are for those who leak. Perfect for mothers. Similar to THINX, they are Pee-Proof and Odor Free. Each pair holds up to 6 teaspoons and they even have a couple styles for 8 teaspoons.

Price: THINX are $24-$39 each depending on style. Hiphugger is $34. 

Overall: A HUGE ***** for THINX. I'm in love!

If you'd like to purchase and use THIS LINK we'll both save $10 on our purchase!
