Period Proof Underwear for Young and Old
“Initiation Celebration” is a tradition in our family where we honor our kids becoming an adult one day. As soon as our children turn 8 years old, we treat them to dinner at their favorite restaurant, surprise them with a special gift (i.e. jewelry, goodies, etc.,) and talk about “The Birds and the Bees.” When I asked my girls recently about this experience, they did say they were embarrassed discussing it at a restaurant! In, my mind, I thought it would be fun and it would be extra special for them. They advised me for Elijah to have this “moment” at home. LOL!
All Bodies are Beautiful
This critical conservation about our bodies and how it operates individually and when coupled lays the foundation for our children to come to us with any questions or concerns. No topic is off limit. I love teaching my daughters about our divinely beautiful female bodies and its amazing abilities! The female menstrual cycle is the pivotal part of this dialogue. My daughters have many questions and concerns about their periods and I am grateful THINX BTWN is a great solution for them and might I add, me as well.
Underwear for Young People with Periods
My girls tell me they are extremely anxious about period surprises — first periods, leaks and stains. They want to feel prepared. I don’t blame them? As an adult, I get concerned too, for them…and for accidents I still have. Emi (14) and Chloe (12) generally spend up to 12 hours per day on-the-go outside of our home. It is a long time for this mama. I do miss them. They, of course, are at school, early morning seminary, dance practices (you guys know that my daughters are ballroom dancers), social events, youth church activities, piano lessons and family time (the movies, shopping, traveling, etc.,).
It was a wish of mine forever to find a menstrual product that lasts all day, comfortable and easy for my girls to use, and works with every outfit they enjoy wearing! From denim, leggings, gym shorts, dresses to leotards, THINX BTWN is an excellent solution to simple and comfy menstrual armor! My daughters were surprised and excited to see how THINX BTWN period proof underwear is actually stylish and thin. It is literally like wearing a normal underwear they are used to wearing on the daily with but with the power of period protection!
Key Benefits of THINX (BTWN)
#1 Stop Leak-Anxiety: Young people with periods can live their lives without worrying about leaks thanks to the 4-layer period-proof technology to stop leaks, stains, and period surprises.
#2 Feel Comfortable: There is no bulkiness, no sticky stuff, and no uncomfortable things to insert. Long days at school, recitals, sports practice, summer camps, lazy weekends on the couch (my girls know all about this) and any outfit choice is made easy.
#3 Safe Alternative to Harmful Period Products: No harmful chemicals are used. Organic cotton is the material of choice and makes up the body of the underwear. The gusset is lined with cotton as well. What touches the sensitive areas of her body are natural and breathable cotton fiber.
#4 Sustainable Alternative to Single-Use Disposable Period Products: They are designed to last up to 2 years and are better for you and better for the planet. Washable, reusable underwear.
It is a plus for me that THINX BTWN is a safe and sustainable option for my tweens.

I remember my mom having this talk with me so many years ago. I also remember one day having a “surprise” in middle school and calling my dad and telling him I didn’t feel good and needed to go home. I would have loved something like this at that age! Heck, I still want to get some of these for me now!
Oh I love these! Super cute options too! I used to hate going to school when I had my period!
There are super cute and such a great way to help talk with your kids when they are younger.
How did I not know these existed? They are so cute too! I HATED going to school on my period as a teenager and these would have been a game changer.
OMG! I had no idea you could find something like this! What an amazing and great idea! I will definitely share this with all my friends!
This is such a brilliant idea! I wish I had it when I was a teen and can’t wait to try it as an adult.
This a fantastic topic to share with others. Its important to embrace this and not make young women feel ashamed. Great tool to reduce the anxiety and make you feel comfortable.
