Did you ever imagine a world in which a period-proof thong would be possible? I sure didn’t, but I’m glad to be living in 2023. Here are the deets: This thong is perfect for your lighter days when you’re not sure if you’re going to bleed, but you know it’s not going to be a heavy flow. This thong holds up to 1 TSP of liquid, or one light tampon’s worth. I love it for days when my period is light but I still gotta go look hot and live my life, ya know? I love this brand and the thong is seriously sooooo soft to the touch for maximum comfort. It’s available in sizes XS to XL and the brand offers other cuts/styles as well.
Saalt’s menstrual discs, cups and cup washes have been available at Target for years, but as of April 6, 2023, you can shop Saalt’s ahhh-mazing period proof underwear line. I mean, have you ever seen a period undie that looks this cute? The line is available in sizes XS to XXL. I’ve tried this line and they are seriously comfortable and easy to machine wash. Plus the undies are FSA/HSA eligible.
These period panties are made from 95 percent cotton and 5 percent elastane (spandex), so they are super breathable with just the right amount of stretch. It wicks away moisture all day, so you won’t even remember you’re free bleeding on a casual walk to the coffee shop. They come in sizes XS to XXL and are HSA/FSA eligible.
These heating pads don’t just heat up and….make you warm. They’re powered with rose, lemon, and jasmine oil for a natural soothing boost that will help tame inflammation.
