I Tried Thinx Period Panties


Usually I’m an alto my period is a baritone I am on my period *shriek* Hello friends, and welcome to another video This week, we are going to be trying out the THINX Period Panties You guys can’t see these things because I’ve hidden them moderately well but there is a pimple sprouting above my eyebrow and the top button of my pants is already undone because I’m on my period That’s right, I started early this morning I’m not a morning person, but apparently my period is. The THINX period panties have been out for a little while And they are advertised basically as just normal underwear that can replace a pad or act as a panty liner on a really heavy day. They have different pairs of panties, like they have more heavy-duty ones, for your more heavier flow days.. And they also have a thong just for the lighter days. I have made people try period panties for a video before, but I have never tried period panties myself, and I am very excited to do so, in front of all you wonderful people. Day one of my period is pretty much over, and as you guys know, I have a seven-day period. Most of my bleeding happens on days one, two, and three Four, and five are kind of, like medium, and then six and seven are just like, spurts I’ve been a tampon user since I was about sixteen, so I’m really excited to try something new this month and get my claws into these panties. So I got these three pairs of period panties A hip hugger, a sport, and a thong I have really high hopes. I’ve heard good things. It’s suppose to feel dry and comfortable and you don’t have to worry about changing a tampon or changing out a pad. I’m just really excited to try these guys out and see if Thinx is worth it, lives up to the hype, and if this is a magical period product that everyone should honestly have It is very late at night, so I’m about to go to bed I am going to wear one of these guys to sleep tonight high stakes, hopefully i don’t ruin the sheets, that would be very sad time to put my first pair of period panties on! i’m going to start with the hip hugger; the hip hugger is thirty-four bucks and it’s suppose to hold about two tampons worth i’m going to try and put them on one-handed here’s the hip huggers from the front here’s the hip huggers from the back let’s, um, out these guys on okay, so they feel really soft; they do feel a little bit like swimwear i got the size medium you could definitely tell there’s a lining around the crotchal area it feels a little more secure than i thought it might they are on! on the outside they feel a lot like a swimsuit bottom but they are pretty comfortable on the inside; they do feel mostly like normal underwear they fit a little tight around my legs openings, but that makes sense ‘cause you wanna like have everything contained i’m a huge fan of the fact that they have this, kind of like, mesh, at the top the mesh waistband is super comfortable it says it holds two tampons worth, so I say, let’s just get into it! I am not going to put any towel down because I like to live dangerously also ignore the fact that my sheets are extremely wrinkly I’m about to turn in for the night and I just felt something drop here’s to hopin’ I can keep it in my panties okay, bye guys, guess what? there’s nothing on the sheets! i feel pretty dry, I wouldn’t say I feel a hundred percent desert dry I’m gonna shower and put on the other pair, but i’m gonna have to wash these cause I’m gonna have to wear these again later today or tonight I think my biggest issue is just gonna be I’m gonna have to be doing laundry a lot. Maybe I should’ve bought more underwear So I just took off the hip huggers that I slept in and threw them in the laundry. While those guys are being washed, let’s go for the sport panty. It’s thirty-two dollars a pair and it hold about one and a half tampons worth Oh my God, did you see on the front it says ‘real menstruating human’? Too bad they didn’t know that I am not human, I am dancer This is the sport panty from the front,
and this is the sport panty from the back this one is the same material as the last one, it does feel a little less thick, but I can still feel the lining on the inside So these guys are suppose to hold one and a half tampons worth, so that should last me for a good few hours So I’m actually doing a photoshoot right now and my period panties are holding up very well I will say though that I was sitting down and I was so nervous that the underwear would, like, shift a little and it would leak out from the sides, but so far, so good (two hours later) I may have run into a disaster um, I think I underestimated my flow and I haven’t had a chance to go home and my panties have runnith over I couldn’t really tell that I had filled it up until I went to the bathroom and realized that the blood had soaked through to the other side crap I can’t go home to get the other pair for a couple of hours They said this one is suppose to be only be one and a half tampons worth which should be enough for like a few hours for me, but maybe day two is just too intense I’m just gonna try and not sit down and hopefully it’ll just be able to hold up until I can go home I didn’t think to throw the thong, or like the extra panty in my bag which is my bad, but also like, I’m also sad that this happened Okay, so I’m finally home I think the panties do a pretty good job of keeping in the smell, until you bleed through and then the smell kind of starts percolating. It was rank So I washed the sport panties and they are drying on the drying rack Look at my sport panty, it’s drying You can barely even tell that I just completely soaked through it It washes out quite nicely I also washed a bunch of my yoga pants, win! We’re going to the mall right now and I put on my hip huggers ‘cause we’re going out for a few hours, so I didn’t wanna risk it with the thong so right now, i have like, full coverage underwear and some extra padding around the crotch and some pants t doesn’t feel uncomfortable necessarily, it just feels a little bulky, like i’m wearing a little bit of a butt pad, you know? Tyler: Yea, you’re smacking your butt Safiya: I don’t know, ‘cause I can’t really feel it ‘cause there’s so much padding, so i’m just like *makes noise*, whatever Tyler: smacking your butt So we went to the mall and we came back and my period panties are very dry and warm very warm because there’s lots of layers happening but, besides that they’re pretty comfortable, it’s just a little bulky still I’m mostly just sitting and editing today I feel good about just wearing the sport panty today, I think we should be okay for a little while and then maybe I’ll throw the thong on at the end of the day The last pair that I bought was the thong I was so fascinated by the idea of a thong being a period panty that I thought I had to try it Got it right here So the thong is twenty-four dollars and it holds about half of a tampon’s worth It’s definitely got some coverage in the front, though a true thong in the back We’re only gonna be out for, like, an hour or two, so hopefully it’ll be fine The thing that I’m really excited about for the thong is the mesh waistband I’m here for the mesh waistband, you guys know I would never put period panty and sexy lingerie in the same room, so I’m pretty impressed that they were like ‘no, we’re gonna make a thong.’ It’s not not cute It feels extremely comfortable Besides the fact that the front is kind of slippery and swimsuity it feels almost exactly like a normal thong We’re out, at In-n-Out I’m wearing my period thong and I feel great, actually, I can’t say that the river is rushing forth, right now; it’s actually pretty calm downstairs Unintended consequence of wearing this thong: Tyler just screaming the ‘Thong Song’ at every turn Tyler: Baby! That thong th thong thong thong I like it when the beat goes! I love when that booty goooo What were you saying? I’ve been walking and sitting today I wore my sport briefs Even though the hip hugger is suppose to be the one that hold the most liquid, I find that the sport panty feels a little bit bulkier It’s day six, I’m just chilling and editing again and I’m wearing the thong And I feel very comfortable and very secure It does have a use; it’s great for like those last couple of days where you’re just like ‘If I didn’t wear anything, something bad might happen, but I just need a little something’ So it’s day seven and I’m wearing my thong under leggings it’s actually quite comfortable what I did realize is that I haven’t exercised at all in these guys, but just to try it out I will get to yoga tonight, in this thong So I just got back from yoga There’s obviously a lot of stretching, a little bit of sweating, definitely a lot of, like, crotchal movement I know today’s the last day of my period, so it’s not the best day to actually see if I would’ve bled through my clothes, but I thought they were comfortable under my yoga pants I didn’t feel like I had a wedgie, I didn’t feel like it was too gathered up The hottest, and the sweatiest I’ve been is when I wore the period panties under jeans, but under yoga pants, they seem pretty breathable So, my period is over now and so is my first Thinx period panty period Overall, as a tampon user, I found the first couple of days to be kind of off-putting because I’m just not used to the feeling of ’the drop’, besides the one day i overflowed, it wasn’t too wet; it wasn’t one hundred percent dry, but it definitely wasn’t wet feeling My biggest issue with these period panties are how expensive they are They run at about, like, twenty-five to thirty bucks each, which is pretty steep and unlike a Diva Cup or something, you don’t need just one I managed to get through the week with just three, but I was doing laundry, like constantly, so I think, like, if you’re going to use just period panties, you kind of need, like five or six So I actually found the thong really great to just throw on for the last couple of days of my period, just to kind of, like, catch anything left My least favorite pair were the sport panties I think now I also have a complex against these because these are the ones that completely overflowed on me Thinx does say on a heavier day, maybe bring a tampon or a backup I’ve been using tampons for so long, I kind of know exactly how many tampons I need but when you switch to a totally new period products, that you don’t know, like, how much blood it holds, the first couple of uses are kind of, troubleshooting. Overall, I think the Thinx period panties are a great supplementary product to whatever period products you’re using I love the thong and I think I’m gonna continue to use it and they’re pretty secure and comfortable to sleep in, so I’m probably going to use the hip huggers to sleep in, as well I think that investing in one or two these period panties could be really helpful, I don’t think for me, I’m gonna go out and buy more and make, like, my only period product these panties, but I do think that they have a place in the battle for Middle Earth and when I say Middle Earth, I mean my uterus Thank you guys so much for watching, if you like that video, make sure to smash that like button and if you wanna see more videos like this, make sure to also smash that subscribe button And also click that bell to turn on post notifications because I promise you three videos a week, absolutely promise it’ll be three videos a week on my channel, but I don’t know if you guys could tell, but the days have become a little bit murky, but um, you know, three videos a week are coming your way, so click that little bell and you won’t miss a single one Check out my social media handles and make sure to check out my Nextbeat, I do a lot of daily vlogging and Q&As on there and uh, thanks for watchin’ Tyler: Crusty!

  1. so much love to you guys! wishing everyone (to which it applies) a smooth and comfortable ~flow~. let me know if you've used these or if you're going to try them! 🖤🖤🖤

  2. Okay, so I know I am watching this two and a half years late, but I do want to thank you for doing this one. I have thought about trying the period panty, and now have a better understanding of it from this video. My personal take is that for those who don't wear pads, but have heavy flow, the period panty might be a good backup to one's tampon or diva cup.

  3. I don't use tampons but use pads which can make me sore even when changing them regularly, I often have wondered about getting period pants to wear at home…I only have a short cycle but it can be very heavy…

  4. I think these are great to combine with any menstrual cup. You know, in case you put it a bit wrong ro get stuck with it longer than expected, period panties will hold any leaks.

  5. Dam you have your period for 7 days 😱 wow. Mine is only 3/4 days been like that always since I was 12 an I am 34 now I couldn't even imagine having it for 7 days

  6. Thanks for the review, I literally have my period for 7-8 days a month. My day 4 & 5 are heaviest, like red wedding heavy 😂. I think these would be good to sleep, i hate sleeping with a pad or tampon.

  7. same day 1,2,3 is a nightmare, 4,5 medium 6,7 is like nothing rlly. i hate pads tho. i dont use them anymore tampons onlyyyy

  8. So many questions. Like doesn't the blood smear down your leg when you take them off. Or what if you work and sit in a car a few hours a day? are you suppose to take 5 pairs, a plastic bag and pray to god no one sees inside your purse? What if you have clots?

  9. I use clue and it says I probably am gonna get mg period tomorrow its Sunday j have school the next day m ig period is five days long

  10. I am a 9 day bleeder. I feel like my uterus is stabbing itself with a bread knife every period. Aunt flow is a bitch and if it werent for birth control, I would die lol
    Day 1 is intro day full of cramping and heavy bleeding
    Day 2 is bedridden day of pain and excess bleeding. (Might as well sit on the toilet all day)
    Day 3 is usually a die down day where i dont bleed as much but its painful
    Day 4 is high gear day where the heavy bleeding comes back
    Day 5 is slow down day for cramping
    Day 6 the bleeding is back and fourth between light then heavy
    Day 7 and 8 are both either bleeding days with clot throwing or die down days
    Day 9 is usually light with a TON of last mintue cramping/clot throwing

  11. Listen nobody's a tampon person naturally. Most of us are swimmers that had to endure that hella learning curve. Now its like why not use a tamon its simpler 💁

  12. my period is like "wow hi HOW ARE YOU ok im gone.

    just kidding ive been here the whole time SURPRISE! oh ok well im gone for real now see u in a month i guess"

  13. Thank you Safiya for outlining that it's ok to use menstrual wear. They were never heard of when I was your age. You should be an advocate for this kind of product. ❤❤❤❤❤

  14. i wonder if they would be good for travel… i'd be worried about having to change my panties midway during travel then have to carry around a pair of clean ones and then have to carry around the dirty ones…

  15. Just wanted to share my experience with Thinx. I did invest in QUITE a few pairs. The only real problem I have with them is putting them back on like if I take them off to pee. I just feel EVERYTHING. For a tampon user I can understand how the panties would feel so heavy. However, for someone who uses pads regularly, wearing the panties alone feels a LOT more breathable than pads. I admit though, I have been in the situation where I was out and I can totally tell the panties could not take a single drop more. So to avoid that I usually just use both the panties and a pad on the heavy days. However. I'm a little different in that, I only usually get it for a max of 5-6 days. So all of that heaviness gets squeezed into 3 days. and then the last 2/2.5 days is like. Barely there. Just wearing something not to stain my clothes.

  16. I might grab a couple of these after your review. I prefer menstrual cups and they are amazing but my first 2 days are quite heavy and once in a while I end up with overflow whilst out, worst time on an airplane. I find pads or panty liners uncomfortable but these sound like a good solution. So thanks for doing such a detailed review.

  17. My period is not a morning person, I was on the toilet in the morning…No period…
    Mid day in school…I get my period, with no Pad near me😑I think my period hates me😞
    Luckily I was able to borrow one of a friend of mine👍 Har Har! I won, you can’t beat me, Period!
    Then I got stomach cramps
    Period: You will be my slave forever🤪🤓🤩😈😈🤡

  18. Well I still using my MENSTRUAL CUP. Maybe I 'll try the last one.
    But pads or/and tampax🚫 never ever ever ever ever…. since 10 years ago.

  19. I usually need an extra long maternity pad and then I need an incotinece nappy and sleep with a cot protection square under me. I’m SO trying this! Even if they’re $50 AUD, even if I get a full brief one for everyday and then pop a pad on top because my period overflows a tampon plus maternity pad combo.

  20. Women's periods are bad, don't get me wrong. But at least you are women and have the PRIVILEGE of a period. As a trans man I have to prick my penis with a diabetic finger blood drawer so I can bleed out my penis each month and feel like my true self. There's really no reason women need to flaunt and show off their period PRIVILEGE.

  21. I bought a pair of hip huggers because if they held up a whole night worth of blood maybe they can work for me as well. Imma let you know even if you don’t care much

  22. These are ridiculous. What are you supposed to do when you're out running errands? Change your undies in a gas station bathroom and shove the used ones in your purse!? Did anyone at this company think this through?

  23. 2:59 here’s the thing : When you lie down the blood does not come out it’s only when you sit up and then it pours out so …..but I’ve been wanting to get these for my daughter who just first started menstruating in case of any “ accidents” so thanks! For the review !

  24. I started EARLY this morning. Awe girl. ITS SUPPOSED TO HOLD ABOUT TWO TAMpons worth WOW haha, is the longer life really worth all this? Probably.

  25. Is there anyone else that can’t get a tampon in for the life of them? I’ve tried almost everything to get one in but it’s like my body is rejecting it! Even when I’m relaxed

  26. I don’t think anyone could pull off a video like this except you! Lol! I’m glad you did this, I’ve always been curious about the period panties. There aren’t for me. Lol. Thanks for being awesome!!

  27. I always use the Diva Cup or other brands similar I use also. They’re awesome, I have thought about trying those Thinx Panties!..

  28. I always use the Diva Cup or other brands similar I use also. They’re awesome, I have thought about trying those Thinx Panties along with the cup or Thinx on the lower period days.

    Anyways I love the period cup, if you haven’t tried it, try it!

  29. My period be like
    Day 1 👉🏼 I'm back but I'm not(spotting)
    Day 2 👉🏼 I'm still here but not in a hurry (still spotting)
    Day 3 👉🏼 still not in a hurry(still spotting)
    Day 4 👉🏼 still not in a mood to come
    Day 5 👉🏼 I'm hereeeee! And I've brought my frnd too. His name is cramps. 😊
    Day 6 👉🏼 I'm still here but cramps is tired
    Day 7 👉🏼 I'll be leaving this afternoon 😂

    Who else experience that 👆🏼?
    Like 👇🏼 here 😁

  30. Day 1: light and pikachu surprise face
    Day 2: OH MAH GAWD SO MUCH
    Day 3: SLIGHT cramps

    When my period is on its period*
    Day 1: alot of blood
    Day 2: CRAMPS
    Day 3: overeating and even more blood
    Day 4: EVEN MORE
    Day 5: even more cramps
    Day 6: hiding my underwear
    Day 7: YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE OVER HAhAhahah*chokes* OK OK!!! yOUR OVER

  31. Pfft what's a tampon? Why would I stick something up my vajayjay when Imma have to take it back out ten minutes later?

  32. have you ever just been like sitting down for awhile and when you stand up you just feel blood gush into your pad or tampon or whatever

  33. These would be good when I was a kid and had my first period I was really young so my mom wouldn’t let me use tampons and pads are bulky

  34. I laugh at all the women suggesting any of these menstrual cups!
    During my period I used to drop clots that would fill a menstrual cup. So all of this nonsense about them lasting hours, is a blanket statement that doesn't apply to all women.

    Also, any of you fans of any of the menstrual cups, I certainly hope that you bring baby wipes to wipe off your fingers while you're in a public bathroom stall. I don't care how well your cup fits, or how light your flow is, you're still sticking your fingers up into your vagina, and I certainly hope you've given thought to wiping your fingers off with something more than toilet paper before you reach for the latch on the stall door.

    Thank God I don't have to worry about periods anymore. Hysterectomies are where it's at!!!!

  35. My period is pretty much

    Day 1- Pretty weak
    Day 2- death is upon us
    Day 3- more death
    Day 4- weak
    Day 5- ok almost done
    Day 6- still some

    It's not bad, just annoying that I keep having to wear pads for 3 days even after it gets super weak

  36. I just got a few days ago my first period and i hate it especially the second day… the second day is a bloody hell.

  37. My sister was a dancer, but she got cancer, the doctors said she still had 2 months more, I thought she had time so I got in line, for the new I phone at the apple store~… she lay there dying with my father and mother, her very last words were…"where is my brother~" turn it off, like a light switch…
