What will be your reaction if someone say that you don't have to buy tampons or pads again? I am not sure about you, but if someone would have said this to me I'd be shocked.
Nothing less than a miracle, indeed. But this has been made possible by the three girls who recently released their invention to the world.
Founded by the twins, Miki and Radha Agrawal and friend Antonia Dunbar, they created THINX. This underwear is washable, seamless panty which is equipped with four layers of resistant and absorbent material.
This panty not only prevents leaking but also prevent the bacteria growth and proliferation of fungi.
The idea came up when one of the founders of Thinx went to South Africa and noticed that a girl was out of the class because of her periods. When they researched, they found that over 100 million girls have to miss their classes because of periods due to lack of access to feminine products.
Panties over pads are the best pick because most of the times pads give that unwanted and heavy feeling. My pick is period underwear.
