If you’re like me, you probably don’t want to wear sexy,lacy undies while you are on your period. Not only do you not feel real sexy during “that time of the month” but you don’t want to risk ruining your Hanky Panky’s.
My weapons of choice when Aunt Flo comes to visit? Check them out below…
What are these wonderful beauties? Say hello to Jockey Elance Hipsters that will be your new BFF.
Comfy? You betcha!
Great coverage? Oh yeah!
Wash and wear well? Definitely!
Pads and pantyliners stick well to them and these undies stay in place which means your maxi pad stays in place! Nothing worse than having to fish one of those things out of your butt crack, right ladies? Oh yeah, we’re getting all real up in here today, yo!
You can find Jockey Elance Hipsters at Bare Necessities for $19 for 3 pairs!!!! (And you can find a ton of other comfy undies there too!)
Also available from: Macys.com, Amazon.com, Kohls, and of course directly from Jockey.com. And if hipsters are your ‘thang, check out their briefs, bikinis and french cut styles. Myself, I prefer to have my butt covered properly!
As for Kotex, you know you can find their products just about anywhere and everywhere. I prefer U by Kotex pads and U by Kotex Curves pantyliners for a multitude of reasons which I won’t go into and gross everyone out. Let’s just say, they work very well, are comfortable and effective!
Buy them at Drugstore.com, Walgreens, Target and most other mass retailers. Plus, right now you can get FREE Goody hair elastics when you buy U by Kotex at Target. Only at Target though! Text ‘KOTEX’ to ‘TARGET’ to get your coupon!
However, I haven’t been using maxi pads as much lately since I discovered the Diva Cup…
What the heck is it?
The DivaCup is a reusable, bell-shaped menstrual cup that is worn internally and sits low in the vaginal canal, collecting rather than absorbing your menstrual flow. Wear The DivaCup for up to 12 hours without leaks or worry. [learn more...]
Costing around $25 on Amazon.com for the Diva Cup Model 1 (Pre-Childbirth) and $27 on Amazon.com for DivaCup Model 2 (Post-Childbirth), compare that to the amount you will spend on maxi pads or tampons in a year….
I’ve had mine for about a year and after I got the hang of it, I definitely loved it. I’m glad I didn’t give up on it after improper positioning left me dissatisfied. I double checked the instructions and asked the advice of a friend who also uses the Diva Cup and by my next cycle, I was a pro. I’m convinced this is the way to go now. Way cheaper, way more comfortable, no leaks, and totally worry free. What more could you ask for? Well, I guess no period at all or only periods when you wanted them… or at the very least not getting bloated on your period?!
If your period makes you insanely, freakishly bloated (I can’t be the only one, right?) you might find that those sexy jeans aren’t working out so well for you… Don’t worry, just grab a pair of these…
The Spanx Skinny Britches® Super Mid-Thigh Shaper slim and trim everything you can fit into your favorite jeans are just look a bit less bloated in whatever you wear during your period (or anytime you feel bloated!). I have at least a dozen different Spanx products and I could NOT live without them. Seriously, biggest lifesaver ever.
Also considering checking out this book I just started reading that has some helpful tips in it:
End PMS & Period Cramps Forever! Tired of suffering every month? This book gives you all the information you need to change your body and feel great all 30 days of the month.
Author Cathy Margolin explains your body’s hormonal cycle in easy to understand language and gives you the tools to balance your hormones throughout the month naturally! Menstrual cycles and period cramps should not be debilitating. The emotional high’s and low’s that come and go with your “Period” are explained and you can now be IN CHARGE of this cycle.. rather than the victim. Learning simply steps to balanced hormones is fun and easy and you will see the difference in the first month.
