I can put up with all the gore and horror of Halloween, but there's truly nothing scarier than when your period ruins a new pair of pants. And I know I've talked about period panties a LOT lately, but these things are absolutely worth the investment, especially when you can order them on sale!
A few different companies out their make "period" or otherwise absorbent panties, but my all-time favourites are from Knix. Theirs come in different cuts, styles and sizes, and they're all so thin it feels like you're wearing nothing – but you actually get all the coverage and extra reassurance you need.
Right now, Knix is holding a 4-Day Sale, where almost ALL leakproof panties are 30% off! The only exclusions are their newer CoreLove High Rise undies and The Dream Short, but everything else is super-absorbent, machine-washable and able to handle whatever blood, pee or sweat might come their way.
My personal favourites are the Athletic Leakproof Period Thongs, since I can wear them with any bottoms and not have to worry about panty lines. I usually save them for lighter days (or the week leading up to my period, when I'm never quite sure when everything will strike), and they're perfect for hot yoga or other workouts at any point in the month, since they'll soak up any sweat for you. Plus, they're now $18.90 each!
I know these undies don't exactly come cheap, but they're absolutely worth checking out during this sale. I have four pairs right now, and they've all lasted me more than a year. You're limited to 10 pairs per customer, and shipping is free when you spend $100. Just hurry, because they're actually in the middle of this four-day event, and according to their Facebook page, everything ends tomorrow on Nov. 1!
