These girls re-engineered underwear for women on their period
Imagine if you never again had to buy tampons or pads. That’s what 3 girls were thinking when they re-engineered new self-absorbent underwear that promises comfort and avoids the use of tampons! Created by the twins Miki and Radha Agrawal and friend Antonia Dunbar, THINX underwear are washable, seamless panties, which were developed with four layers of absorbent and resistant material.
“Women in our culture don’t want to talk about their periods — most still think about it as crass and disgusting,” Miki Agrawal, CEO and cofounder of THINX, told Forbes. “I want to change the culture around women’s most normal time of month — and not while wearing grandma panties or pads that feel like a diaper.”
The panties were created to not only absorb menstruation preventing leaks, but also prevent the proliferation of fungi and bacteria.
