Whether you’re a student starting a new semester of college, a teacher instructing in classes all day, or a nurse gearing up for a long night shift, the last thing you want to have to worry about is being prepared for your period.
Luckily, we’ve teamed up with Student Beans to make effortless period protection even more accessible. Now, college students, first responders, healthcare workers, teachers, and military can all get $10 off their first Thinx purchase of $35+ (plus free shipping on their first order!) — all you have to do is register on the Beans iD portal and verify your identity status to get instant access to these savings.
Besides fitting into your busy lifestyle, our period underwear is a no-brainer. Tired of changing pads or tampons in public bathrooms? Just put on a comfy pair of Thinx before heading out for the day (and pack an extra pair for backup on heavy flow days). Want to avoid leaks in class, on a long shift, or overnight? Save yourself from stained seats and sheets with our technology that works to absorb your period and help prevent leaks. Our underwear can be worn on its own as a reusable alternative to disposable tampons and pads, or can be paired with tampons or a cup for extra peace of mind.
Thinx period underwear is easy to use (you put ‘em on like you would any other pair of underwear) and just as easy to wash: wash your Thinx before each use, then throw them in with the rest of your laundry on a cold cycle, or hand wash ‘em in lukewarm water with mild detergent. Make sure to hang them up to dry so that they last as long as possible. No need to worry about constantly keeping tampons and pads stocked up — Thinx can be washed and reused over and over.
Not sure where to start? We’ve rounded up some of our best-in-class styles so you can build your own Thinx starter kit. Pro tip: snag a few pairs to keep in rotation, so you can stay comfortably protected all cycle long.
Our iconic Hiphugger style is a fan favorite for a reason. It’s available in moderate, heavy, and super absorbencies, so you can choose the right fit for your flow.
Our best-selling Sleep Shorts are a game-changer when it comes to sleeping on your period. Wake up to clean sheets, every time.
On your heaviest, crampiest days, opt for Super Hi-Waist — equipped with our highest absorbency, its high-rise design keeps you comfortably supported.
Say goodbye to visible panty lines with our Thong, which absorbs one regular tampon’s worth of flow — perfect for those last few days of your period.
Made from cooling micromesh, our Thinx air™️ Bikini wicks away moisture of *all* kinds, making them ideal for working out while on your period.
Don’t forget, you can save $10 on your order of $35 or more (and even score free shipping on your first order) when you register with Student Beans and verify your identity status — so you can stay confidently covered from period leaks.
