Continuing our series on pregnancy struggles, we now turn our focus to the letter “U”, which in this case stands for Urine leakage and the common mom-to-be issue of bladder control – or lack thereof – in pregnancy. Read on about a new brand of intimates, Icon Undies, that address the #PregnancyProblem of Urine Leakage (also known as “there’s a baby human sitting on my bladder”.)
Icon Undies are for women who can’t go without sneezing, coughing, laughing, or…moving, without leaking just a little every time. This can be frustrating when you’re on the go and living life, so Icon came up with a non-bulky and very adorable solution. Made in bikini and high-waist styles, each pair of Icons can hold up to 5 teaspoons of liquid; with its fast-wicking lining, you’ll feel dry as soon as you leak – no more feeling damp or self-conscious!
With its anti-odor treatment, you’ll never smell, and these undies are anti-microbial, keeping you clean and hygienic. Many moms end up wearing panty-liners for years in case of leaks, but these flattering undies, with a build-in soft padded interior, will protect you and your clothes (and anxiety) for years to come.
And for when you’re NOT pregnant. Meet THINX – also known as “period panties”.
When you have your period, it’s a drag to have to remember to throw tampons or pads in your bag every time you leave the house. Made by the same creators as Icon Undies, THINX underwear now makes it possible to feel clean and liberated throughout your period. Their award-winning patented technology keeps you feeling dry and clean all day. Each pair of undies can hold up to two tampons worth of liquid; some women choose to wear THINX as a panty-liner replacement, along with their normal tampons or menstrual cup, while others with a naturally lighter flow, are able to wear just the THINX during their entire period. Uh oh, did you tampon or cup overflow? No worries, THINX has anti-wicking properties to keep you dry, and are microbial, so they will keep you clean and smell-free. They are leak-proof, so go ahead and wear those white jeans this summer! Each style (hiphugger, high waist, cheeky, thong, boy-short, and sport) come in varying levels of protection and absorbency, so you can create a set of underwear which works for you and your period.
