Good riddance to the days when sneaking a tampon to the bathroom was a covert mission. Today, periods are cool. In fact, there’s a whole wellness trend about it, including a potpourri of products, practices and learnings.
And I’ve been all for it. That is, except for the period panties part.
See, like that character in Mean Girls, I too have a heavy flow. I always have, even more so since experiencing postpartum. So, when it comes to my period I’ve always thought—there’s no way I’m trusting a little pair of undies to get me through the day, no matter how many women rave about it. Don’t get me wrong, the product sounds great. It just never seemed like the right fit for me. That is, until I actually gave them a shot. I tested the new Hanes Women’s Comfort, Period.™ panties for a week and here’s why I’m officially on board.
