You already know we’ve got styles for different days of your ~flow~, from light to moderate to heavy. But there are so many other things to consider — for example, what activities are filling your packed schedule?
The fact of the matter is that your period might come regardless of what you’ve got planned. Luckily, there’s a Thinx style for basically *every* addition to your to-do list. Whether you’re on-the-go or taking a (well deserved!) self-care day, Thinx has got your back.
Here are some other suggestions for those hard-to-choose-the-perfect-Thinx-for life moments. (There are so many!)
Pull on a pair of our Boyshort style and snooze SO dang soundly. This style comes in moderate absorbency (holds 3 regular tampons’ worth), and the comfy-rise and extra length in the leg make you feel super secure — perfect for drifting off to sleep. Also: our Boyshort goes great with your fave sweatshirt and a cheesy movie on a Friday night in.
What we’re saying is: Boyshort is the ultimate period-week loungewear. Pro tip: try out our Cotton Boyshort for even more coziness.
Here’s the plan: you and your crew are meeting up at your favorite dive bar, dancing like crazy, and then probably going to eat french fries at some 24-hour greasy spoon.
First of all, I’m jealous. Second of all, you’re gonna need some backup. But, like, really cute backup. Enter: the Hi-Waist! Notorious for being the Thinx team’s *fave* style, the Hi-Waist pairs some serious sex appeal with serious leak protection, which means you can dance your a$$ off, no worries.
Your cramps have hit the road, you’re in the middle of your period, and you’re ready to get the blood flowing… in a different way. A pilates class sounds like just the thing, but you need a pair of undies that lets you twist and turn and lunge and jump, without moving around (or leaking!). The wider, higher-cut legs on our Sport style will keep you movin’ and groovin’ in comfort. (For other workout-friendly options, try out our period-absorbing apparel.)
It’s a light day and you’ve gotta get sh*t done! On the to-do list: mailing back those shoes you impulsively bought while you were bored at work last Friday, stocking up on veggies at the grocery store, and stopping by the drugstore to replenish your pile of bobby pins (seriously, where do they all go?!).
Slip on your Cotton Thong for some breathable, comfy, cuuuute protection. The best part? No VPL… even if you’re rockin’ yoga pants or your lightest, whitest jeans!
Our most popular style, the Hiphugger, doubles as very reliable travel insurance.
Made for heavy days—or, like, *really* long flights—our full coverage Hiphugger keeps you from feeling moist (ahem) or gross, even if you’ve been sitting in the same cramped middle seat for 11 hours. You’ll feel as fresh as the celebs hoppin’ off a plane at LAX in paparazzi shots, minus the alarming number of blanket scarves.
You know what we mean. Sometimes all you wanna do is cook dinner—and by cook dinner, we mean microwave some Easy Mac—with no pants on. If that's the case, Cheeky is here for *you*.
