THINX Period-Proof Underwear NYC Pop-up

THINX Period-Proof Underwear Pop-Up Shop Opens in NYC

Although its natural, there’s nothing enjoyable about having your period (no matter how many commercials try to convince you otherwise). It’s painful, uncomfortable and can get expensive. Ladies, have you ever calculated how much you spend in tampons and pads a year? Plus there is the fear of the dreaded and embarrassing leaks. If you’re not familiar with THINX Period-Proof Underwear, we’ve got you covered on getting acquainted. THINX is the period solutions company and creators of period-proof underwear; and if you live in NYC, you’ll definitely want to visit their pop-up shop.

THINX undies are washable and reusable. Every pair of THINX is made with a signature 4-layer technology for ultimate protection. They absorb your period and are a more sustainable solution than single-use disposable products. Depending on your flow (light, medium, heavy), THINX can replace pads, tampons, liners, and cups. For extra protection and those heavy flow days, they can also be worn with tampons and cups.

We had the pleasure of attending the opening event of the THINX Period-Proof Underwear pop-up located in Soho, New York. Hosted by Real Housewives of New York’s Jill Zarin, we toured the store, met the THINX team, and got familiar with the products. Jill is actually a huge fan of THINX products, especially their Icon’s pee-proof underwear for bladder leaks. Icon underwear is available in five styles: hi-waist, hiphugger, french cut, bikini, and thong. Their color options include black, beige, grey, and blue.

If you think period-proof underwear are nowhere near stylish, think again. THINX period-proof underwear are available in a variety of styles including bikini, boy short, hi-waist, hiphugger, and thong. Cotton underwear fans will love their organic cotton brief, bikini, and thong offerings.

The store offers a customized Cycle-Set Bar, allowing shoppers to pick out their perfect cycle-set. THINX (BTWN) is specifically for young girls, ages 9-16, and come in three different styles: bikini, brief, and shorty. They are available in two colors/one print: Tidal Wave, Beet Juice, and Let’s Polka.

Late last year, we highlighted the newest innovative product to hit the incontinence market, Poise Impressa. Today we’re happy to share the latest from the brand, the Poise Thin-Shape Pads. We love walking the city, especially during the summer, so when my mom (a long time fan of Poise products) comes to visit, I always encourage (she’ll say force) her to join me in trekking the city. I’m an avid believer in making the most out of life and experiencing as much as you can. Great moments make great memories, so I am always up for seizing and creating wonderful moments. My mom and I usually stay out all day, which means making sure we have all we need to take on the day away from home, especially on days that are extremely hot and humid. For me, it is essential to make sure she’s comfortable, especially as she’s older. For her, that means adding Poise Thin-Shape Pads to the staple of items she needs.

The day begins with her being comfortable, not just in the clothing she wears, but also feeling confident that she won’t suffer any accidental leaks throughout the day so that naturally means stopping by our local RiteAid to stock up on Poise Thin-Shape Pads. Easy to find in the incontinence section, and with a package that includes a 66-count, stocking up on these ultra thin pads is a breeze. The new Poise Thin-Shape Pads are 40% thinner than the original Poise pads, making it perfectly thin enough to fit in her makeup bag.

Because summer days can be incredibly hot, making sure we’re fully prepared is key, so if you or someone you love is incontinent and wants to enjoy a day without worry, check out the checklist in the following tutorial on the must-have items you or your loved one needs before heading out:

Things to make sure to have in your bag to stay fresh on a hot summer day:

Water – For a long time, my mother didn’t drink much water away from home because she was afraid of accidents, but on these 90+ degree days, there is no escaping staying hydrated for health reasons. Thanks to the Poise Impressa and now the new Poise Thin-Shape Pads, she no longer worries about that and commits to staying hydrated.

Makeup Wipes – Anyone who’s been out in the incredible heat knows your beauty can end up running like it was Niagara Falls, plus if you’re wearing flip-flops, get ready for some dirty feet. Having makeup wipes, instead of regular wipes gives you the benefit of not only keeping you fresh and clean, its hydrating ingredients is great for your skin.

Fan – My mom and I love fans, the femininity of it, the drama of it, plus it’s a great way to keep cool when you’re moving in between air conditioned environments. We both always make sure to keep one in our bags for those times when the heat is especially high.

Poise Thin Shape Pads – While you’ll naturally leave the house wearing one, I advise carrying an extra just in case, especially if you’ll be out for most of the day. Because they’re ultra thin, you can fit multiple in your makeup bag, purse, etc. So walk all you want, laugh all you want, and shop all you want. The thin flex technology featured in Poise Thin Shape Pads moves seamlessly with your body keeping you protected and comfortable.

Hats – Fashionable and beneficial, a fabulous hat will keep you looking good and will keep the sun at bay, and help keep your makeup on your face longer.

Snacks/Fruit – Just as staying hydrated is important, having a healthy snack is essential. While we usually pop into a restaurant to grab lunch, etc, keeping snacks like fruit is a must as the heat and sun can drain your energy.

As you can see, there’s no reason to let incontinence stop you from enjoying life and making the most of your day. My mom is walking more, and actually many times insists on staying out longer to experience the more of what the city has to offer. There’s nothing stopping you from making and capturing those wonderful life moments. Are you ready to seize your moments with Poise Thin-Shape Pads?

Stop Leaks Before They Start w/ Poise Impressa at CVS

There are things we may take for granted and not realize it. When I’m out with friends, we go dancing, we may do something that entails physical activity, and we have amazing conversations that end in raucous laughter. For me, this is a joyous time of untroubled fun but for two people in my life, that’s not the case. Both have stopped doing things they love or enjoy trying something new because of leakage. Even everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing and laughter is cause for concern. I was discussing my mom’s activity withdrawal with a friend while on our way to CVS, she informed me that she too has to be careful and worries about leaks……needless to say I was surprised, because this was someone who’s closer to my age group. Until then, I never realized when she declined certain activities, it had to do with the fear of uncontrollable leakage. Luckily I was able to introduce both  she and my mom on the latest safeguard against sudden leaks, the Poise Impressa Bladder Support Kit.

I’ve been trying to get my mother to exercise more, mainly walking, something she was actively doing before. She also used to stand up or stay away from fabric couches whenever she knew she would sneeze, cough or laugh and while I thought she was just being strange. After introducing her to Poise Impressa, a soft flexible, internal device with a non-absorbent outer cover, that’s designed for the temporary management of SUI, I saw a change. The Impressa is inserted just like a tampon, but unlike a tampon doesn’t absorb leaks. Finding your perfect size is easy, try size 1, if you experience no leaks, you have found your perfect fit; if you still experience leaks with size 1, move on to size 2, again if there are no leaks, that is your size, if not, move on to size 3. My mom found her right fit (size 2) that supports her urethra after trying them all out. It’s important to note that your height and weight does not matter in finding your right Poise Impressa size, it’s all about finding the perfect internal fit. With a little coaxing, and Poise Impressa, not only has she enjoyed our walks (she now walks to her supermarket as a form of exercise), she’s enjoying full belly laughs and is no longer terrified of or standing up when coughing or sneezing).  As we were out and about all day, she felt comfortable wearing Poise Impressa and was quite happy she didn’t have to remove them when using the restroom. To remove the Poise Impressa Bladder Support, just pull the string as you would when removing a tampon.

As I stated before, a friend of mine also shared her story with me (she’s a size 3 by the way), but of course her story and my mother’s are not the only ones. There are so many inspirational stories of women who are living much happier lives because of Poise Impressa, get to know these women, share your own story, or just learn more on Life After Leaks. Buying the Poise Impressa Sizing Kit is quite convenient, you can either pop into the Feminine Care aisle of any CVS (just look for Poise products), or order them online from the comfort of your home computer or mobile device. Even more great news, CVS is offering a $1 Off coupon off the kit.

Always Discreet, Never Ashamed | Marilu Henner & Always Discuss Sensitive Bladders

There’s an issue that seems to be very taboo among women, so much so that women prefer to suffer in silence rather than tell anyone, even loved ones don’t know they suffer through this condition. That condition is sensitive bladders. Did you know that 40 million American women of all ages are affected by sensitive bladders? More than 40% over the age of 40 suffer from it but it can affect women of all ages. Many women stop participating in their favorite activities because they’re afraid of accidental leakage. Always, a global leader in feminine protection with a long history of meeting the needs of women, has launched Always Discreet, a new product line for women with sensitive bladders that revolutionizes the way women manage and view their sensitive bladders.

To help celebrate with the launch, and to get women talking about what has been a taboo subject, Marilu Henner, along with some amazing lifestyle experts, Barbara Hannah Grufferman, Positive Aging Expert, Dr. Marla Shapiro, Medical Expert, and Valerie Waters, Fitness Expert and Celebrity Trainer, were on hand to introduce Always Discreet and discuss what many women hide from friends and family.

The event encouraged all to attend, in their best 80’s workout outfit. That’s right, it was all legwarmers, leotards and headbands, as we were in for some Dancerobics from the master herself, Marilu Henner. While we participated for a while, we had to capture great atmosphere of this fun experience.

Check out some of our amazing video below taken from the Dancerobics class with Marilu Henner:

You may be thinking, what does exercise have to do with bladder protection? A sensitive bladder affects one in every three women, ages 18 to 75 when they’re doing everyday things such as dancing, laughing, exercising or just going about their daily lives. Always Discreet introduces three products – Liners, Pads, and Underwear, which are designed to offer incredible comfort, protection and discretion, in a flattering feminine design, that absorbs leaks and odors in seconds.

The Always Discreet pads are up to 40 percent thinner than competitive brands (see above for how 6 pads stack up against other leading brands) and absorb twice as much fluid, twice as quickly, as needed. The disposable Always Discreet underwear hugs your curves, making it feel like real underwear; this discreet, easy-to-wear bladder protection product provides extra protection thanks to its Dual Leakguard barriers that helps stop leaks where they are most likely to happen.

On the new Always Discreet website, women can learn more about sensitive bladder issues and how to manage them comfortably and confidently, get tips, facts, and articles written by experts on fitness, health and aging. For women who are not quite ready to talk openly, it features an anonymous forum for women to ask experts questions and connect with other women, similar to what we had at the event.

The Always Discreet website helps you choose the Always Discreet product that best suits your needs and lifestyle as well as a free sample pack with coupon. Get the new Always Discreet liners, pads and underwear now in all major supermarkets, pharmacies and mass retailers.
