“Underwear for Women with Periods,” THINX Inc., 2015.
THINX panties offer another solution to women who want a reusable option for managing their period. THINX designed the underwear using absorbent, leak resistant material. The underwear removes pads and tampons completely from the picture; the panties are the pad. However, this level of convenience comes at a price. Each pair of underwear costs thirty-four dollars – and the panties still have to be laundered, like the old menstrual rags.
