Let鈥檚 face it: That time of the month is no one鈥檚 favorite time of the month. Periods aren鈥檛 pleasant, and that鈥檚 likely why so many companies聽are on a mission to make them suck less 鈥 no matter if it鈥檚 making them more eco-friendly or sending a box of goodies to help you deal. Now, entrepreneur and millennial woman making history聽Miki Agrawal聽has come up with a way to not only make it more comfortable and fashionable, but to empower women and eliminate body shame with her not-so-simple panties, called聽Thinx.


Thinx undergarments are designed with multiple layers to be absorbent in case your tampon fails or you get an unexpected flow. They鈥檙e designed with the same moisture wicking material you鈥檇 find in athletic clothes to keep you dry no matter what. Thinx come in three different styles 鈥 thong, cheeky and hip hugger 鈥 so you can find the best type to suit your needs and tastes.

These underpants go beyond helping women deal with their monthly period though. They also help support women in developing nations. The panties are designed in NYC and made in Sri Lanka. The factory is family owned and provides supplementary education to its employees to train them to be leaders in their communities. Thinx has also partnered up with AfriPads, an African company that makes reusable sanitary pads. For every pair of Thinx purchased, a set of AfriPads are donated to a girl in Africa so she won鈥檛 have to miss school when she has her period. We mean really, how much can one pair of underwear accomplish?! Apparently鈥 a lot.


We don鈥檛 know about you guys, but our next period is getting a backup plan while helping us do good. You can pick up your own pair of Thinx undies for $24-34 on their website.
