THINX definitely eliminates the need for panty liners, and will make a great back up to your tampon or menstrual cup. Some do choose to wear THINX on its own, but no one knows your flow better than you, so you’ll be the best judge of what works! Well, every pair of THINX has a top layer that wicks all liquid into the über thin absorption layer right beneath it, so that you feel super dry. This way, you can wear `em all day long (i.e., no, you don`t have to change them during the day, no, they don`t feel like diapers, and no, it`s not like sitting in your own blood). Boom. HOW TO CLEAN: Icon PEE-PROOF UNDERWEAR - underwear that keeps you dry and odor-free from little leaks! Similar to THINX, but meant for leaks! I received a pair of each panty and at first, just looking at them - they`re not too exciting. I held off until my period rolled around to try them out for myself though. While I wasn`t quite ready to try them as a tampon/pad replacement, I did wear them along with my tampon. I have to admit, they fit great and make a great pair of "period panties" to me. First of all, they are black. Everyone knows black panties are perfect for that time of the month for obvious reasons - any leaky stains don`t show through! Next, these have a great fit. Some panties are too loose or too "sexy" to be appropriate for "period time" but these had a nice secure fit. While wearing them my pad didn`t slip around (depending on the flow I wear both tampons and pads to clarify me bouncing between the two). One thing I did feel comfortable with, is while wearing the tampons, I had no need to wear panty liners with them as I usually do. During this instance, I experienced no leaks or stains. One additional thing, I felt no additional moisture with these. Not sure if that was just the "luck of the draw" this month or because of these panties, but they made a huge difference. As an added bonus, once on, I thought these panties actually looked cute. Yes, they were a plain black, but they had a lace trim so you didn`t necessarily feel like you were wearing period panties. Just a small thing that makes a difference. For those who plan to use these as a pad or tampon replacement, they have different panties that hold different amounts of your menstrual cycle. The pair I received are good to hold one full tampon worth. While it sounds gross and I can`t tell how well they work alone, many testimonials claim these work great alone and there`s even easy to follow instructions for cleaning. Ultimately, these could save you money in the long run as well as provide you with more comfort during your period. As far as the icon panties, I wore those as well. Now I do not have any bladder leakage, so I can`t honestly comment on how well they hold up for that purpose, but I can say these too are a nice quality and well made. They also provide a secure and comfortable fit. The thing I noticed with both pair of panties is that I didn`t feel the need to load them up with baby powder to help eliminate any odor. During my time of the month I become very self-conscious because I am big with my own personal hygiene so I want to ensure I don`t smell; especially during that time. Well, with these panties I not only felt clean, but noticed no odors either. While these may be just a pair of panties to some, to me, these have become a new "must have" for my during my periods for more comfort and a sense of peace; well as much as you can get during that time anyway. I wasn`t expecting so much out of these, but have become quite impressed and certainly would recommend these!
