If you keep up with this blog, you've probably heard me talk about Knix a lot – but it's for a good reason. I started buying their leakproof underwear a couple of years ago, and these things completely changed the game and how I think about my period. And now, they're bringing that same technology to a new generation.
The Knixteen product line is exactly what it sounds like: a collection of Knix intimates specifically designed with teens in mind. Let me tell you, these are exactly the kind of products I wish I had when I was in junior high and dealing with my first period. And if you have kids around that age, Teen Period Panties are a MUST.
Like the "adult" versions, these undies are seamless and have a special built-in liner that can absorb up to three tablespoons of liquid – which is up to two tampons' worth of blood. They can also help protect you and your clothes from bladder leaks or super-sweaty gym classes. Honestly, I would have loved to have these for games and track meets, and I probably would have worn them every single day I could.
I did notice one slightly disappointing thing right away. I've worn thongs almost every day since junior high, and there aren't any Knixteen thong styles. You can, however, buy the classic Leakproof Thong from Knix.
They did, however, introduce something really cool. If your teens want a little extra protection while they sleep, say hello to the Sleepover Short. They're apparently super comfortable and designed to keep your sheets dry and free of period stains all night long. But the best part? They're only $42 each!
You can also bundle certain products together and buy them at a discount. And while you're shopping, you might also want to take a look at the Teen Bras they have in stock. These are bras Knixteen developed with input from 40,000 teens, so they're probably exactly what you (or your children) need.
Orders over $80 ship free, or you'll score free home delivery if you buy at least five pairs of panties. Their complete sizing charts are available online, and they even launched a period blog for teens, too!
