It’s fair to say that you’ve heard of Thinx before, a brand that makes period-proof panties, which give you the option to ditch your tampon or pad if you just don’t feel like dealing with the hassle. Thinx has just released their new period-proof gym shorts, because you shouldn’t have to worry about menstruating while you’re getting a sweat on.
They’re called Period-Proof Training Shorts, and you can use them for just about anything—working out, running, dancing, hiking, lounging around the house, etc.
They hold up to two tampons’ worth of menstrual blood, so you don’t have to worry about any period leakage. The absorbent material has four layers of moisture-wicking protection, but they’re still breathable and light.
Don’t they look awesome? Here’s a close up.
And here they are in action.
You’re bound to find a pair in your size, as they run from XS to 3XL. They cost $65. Also, we’re loving the diversity represented in the Thinx campaign. It’s great to see women with different bodies and skin tones rocking these new period friendly shorts.
Although they’re hella durable, don’t forget to take care of them in the wash. Put your period proof shorts in a mesh laundry bag, wash them in cold water, and hang them out to dry.
This is just one of the many innovative period products Thinx has given the world. They started with the period panties but then moved on to leotards, unitards, tampons, and now training shorts. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next.
Stay tuned to see what these training shorts look like in action!
