Sexy Period Panties

by Emilie Branch


Welcome to the latest in period technology… “Sexy” period technology. The innovative minds over at sexyperiod.com have invented underwear that soaks up your menstrual blood; think panties with a built in pad. The underwear is apparently leak-proof (the padding extends throughout) and the site claims it’s comfortable. It’s also the cutest diaper I’ve ever seen. The advertising copy is a bit over the top: “Always chic, always sexy, you rule the city. Whether you’re heading out dancing with the girls or getting dressed up for a movie night in, Friday Night Fabulous™ is what you’re wearing. We searched high and low to find a lace waistband that is super stretchy and lies flat on your skin (no muffin tops allowed!).”

It’s meant to be used as a back up to a pad or tampon (there’s a disclaimer at the end) so I don’t imagine it to be that thick. It’s nice that there’s a leak-proof panty out there (Is there anything worse than a period stain?) but give us a break with the sexy ruler of the city thing. An article on Gawker this morning took it one step further, when they wrote “As far as ‘body functions I do not care about sexualizing’ go, ‘sexy period’ is right up there with ‘sexy Krebs Cycle’and ‘sexy popping a zit.’ “
