Today it would be a different review and this time it would be about period panties!
Yes, the period panties.
We are aware that both tampons and pads are super harmful to our planet since it is filled with plastics it can take up to 40 to decompose. Yup, 40 years is basically half of a lifetime.
I’m slowly changing my lifestyle for more essential sustainable choices.
I was shopping at Marshalls (don’t judge me) and I found Modibodi.
Modibodi is a well-known brand that focuses on more sustainable everyday underwear. I found their period panties and I went nuts. I managed to purchase 3 of their panties each of them cost $16 USD so it was a total of $50 including taxes.
I do admit it was a bit pricey but let me start reviewing.
I only manage to find one size 14 (us) and two sizes of 16 (us).
I’m usually a size 14 Large so it fits me perfectly. It wasn’t tight and it was super comfortable.
The size 16 which is an XL didn’t give me those grandma panties so it was also super comfortable.
My period is pretty regular so I’m not in a heavy flow.
On my first night I used the size 16 seeing how long it held the liquid and my bed was blood free!
On the second day, I used my size 14 during the work day. After 6 hours of the shift, my pants were pretty much blood free and I don’t give those bloody odors. I didn’t feel self-conscious about it and I was comfortable working around kinda like those early 2000 pads commercials where the ladies are dancing around that how I felt wearing my Modibodi.
And my sort-of last day I again wore my 16 since I only found one size 14 and the majority was too small or way too big for me so I wore it during the night since I dislike the feeling of sleeping with pads it is quite uncomfortable and I do move around when I sleep.
What are my thoughts about the period panties?
Honestly. I love it and I do recommend investing in some of them.
I plan to have a few more to the point that I no longer have to buy pads. I don’t wear a tampon or the menstruation cup because I find them super uncomfortable and painful for me to wear. Adding to it I have a fear of forgetting that I’m wearing menstruation or a tampon.
As I mentioned before I do find it a bit pricey but I think it is a good investment since it means leaving fewer carbon footprints. I do want to try other products of Modibodi like their sweat-free bra.
Have you tried any sustainable menstruation stuff?
