It was the 8th grade. I was 13. My hair was a hot, frizzy mess, I could not get my bangs to do that fun fan thing that was so popular at that time, my face was always accessorized with a pimple or two, everyone was in a relationship except me and I was becoming a woman in the most awkward and uncomfortable way possible.

As my daughters grow up, I can’t help but want to snap my fingers and make their middle school experience easy and magical.  Unfortunately, I’m no magician. So while I can help with the hair and pimple issues that are bound to occur, I can’t take away that uncomfortable feeling we all have one week out of every month. I’m not talking about the cramps and bloating (though those are awful), I’m talking about the giant pads we use to prevent possible leaks. I thought of them as my safety net.

Like most things, our girls have it so much easier these days. Because now, instead of giant pads, they have better, safer, less bulky options, like Knixteen. Which is awesome because middle schoolers in our county are forced to walk around with a see-through backpack and how many places can you hide a pad when people can see what you’re carrying around?

Knixteen is a brand built for teens, with products designed to make growing up easier. They are the creators of the perfect leak-proof period underwear and comfy training bras. Why weren’t they around in our teenage years? It would have made that awkward time so much less awkward.

What’s great about Knixteen period panties is that they look and feel like regular undies (prettier, actually). The difference is, they are absorbent, sweat-wicking, odor-crushing and seamless. Basically, they are magic for your period and you don’t have to be a magician to own them! Forget putting on your ugliest, biggest undies when Aunt Flo arrives (do they still call it that?). Why shouldn’t we feel comfortable and pretty all month?

Growing up is hard enough, and I don’t want my daughters worrying about their period ruining their pants. Plus, Knixteen is good for the environment and your wallet. No more buying disposable, non-flushable products that serve as a constant reminder that it’s that time of the month (though they can be used as a backup, if you need them). No chemical concerns or forcing them to learn to use tampons before they’re ready. I know I wasn’t ready until I was in my 20’s. And if I’m being honest, I’m still not a fan.

Knixteen offers a variety of shapes and sizes, including ‘Oh-No’ Proof Bikini, ‘Oh-No’  Proof Boyshort and Sleepover Short. The sleepover shorts are my daughter’s fave. There’s nothing worse then waking up in a panic because you’re afraid you’ll mess up your sheets, or worse, your mattress! They are comfy, soft and give her the peace of mind she needs.

And it’s not just undies they offer… One of my favorite parts of the Knixteen website is their Period Talk page, a great resource for your girls to have their questions answered.

Questions like

“Why is this happening to me?”

“Why does it feel like ninjas are attacking my stomach?”

“How do I break the news to my Mom and Dad?”.

I have to mention the little reusable pouch they send you with your order is everything. It can be used for a variety of things, including a DIY heating pad for when your cramps get bad! Just run a small towel or washcloth under hot water, insert it into the Knixteen pouch and you’ve got a heating pad! They’ve really thought of everything.

As a Mom, I appreciate companies helping our girls to feel more comfortable about this uncomfortable time in their lives. While my girls ask me lots of questions, there are times when they might feel a little more comfortable reading those answers from a reputable company that knows what they’re going through.

Are period panties a good option for your daughter? We definitely recommend giving Knixteen a try. She may just have the magical school experience that we didn’t! Use code SUPERMOMLIFE15 for 15% off ONLY underwear; expires July 31, 2019.

  1. I am so grateful that technology has afforded today’s teens thinks like period panties. I would have worn them every day, just in case.

  2. I am absolutely in love with these. I sure wish they had something like this when I was younger.

  3. I have heard of these before and I love that I now know more about them. I will definitely be passing these along!

  4. This is such an amazing alternative to a pad! I know that lots of places have gone to the see through bags – so this is so awesome.

  5. Where were these when I was 13?? My mom used to send me with such large pads that I looked like I was wearing diapers. Till today I’m embarrassed!

  6. These days with such innovative products coming in everyday, life has become so much better. I guess the products will be of excellent quality.

  7. Give me all of them. With my job, sometimes during my cycle, I don’t get to the bathroom on time. I think these panties will help with me not having to double up on tampon and pad, just so I don’t have an accident.

  8. Why haven’t I known about the existence of period panties??? I’ve needed it before and I still need it now! Thank you for this, will def make a purchase.

  9. I’ve always LOVED period panties. Holding your pads in place, keeping you from accidents — what’s not to love? 🙂

  10. I can’t imagine wearing a period panty because I’ve always worn disposable pads. It could be interesting as it’s something new to experience. I’m not a fan of tampons or menstrual caps either.

  11. I am so getting some of these for my daughter. She just finished up 8th grade and I think she would love to have these for high school. I honestly didn’t even know that there was such a thing and yes, why did we not have these when we were younger? Ugh, it would have saved me from so much period induced anxiety.

  12. I think my niece would love it. Although, I’ll ask my sister to buy it for her. I think it’s a nice for her to try this good product.

  13. I so wish they had something like this when I was growing up. It is a genius idea. I love all the options young ladies are afforded these days. Growing up is stressful enough without having to worry about your period.

  14. Where were these when I needed them as a young, awkward teen of the 90’s?! They look awesome, such a better option than the bulky pads.

  15. These sound awesome! Love that hey offer so many varieties for different occasions. It’s great to have options!

  16. This is brilliant! I think it’s so needed. Girls can sometimes be so nervous and often periods some so randomly that these could really save a lot of girls some stress!

  17. I’ve been wondering a lot about these products. I think they sound awesome too. Something I really need to think about more and possibly give a try.

  18. Very interesting concept. I know for me, I would never want to go freely in undies. But, I guess it is cool for kids.

  19. This is something I’ll have to consider for my girls when they get to this age and depending on their flow.

  20. These sound great and I’m glad they offer so many varieties for different occasions. They must be helpful!

  21. I wish those were available when I was a teen. Oh I remember those days. I was scared to move because I feared I would have a strike through! Anyway, I am glad that there are products like these period panties that help the young girls be as comfortable as possible during their periods.

  22. I’ve never tried these but I heard good things about them. They would simplify that time of the month for sure.

  23. I wish I had a pair of period panties growing up. I have to make sure to look into getting this for my nieces when the time comes.

  24. I work with kids and a lot of my 5th graders are just getting their periods. It is so important to talk openly with them.

  25. I love that period items have come so far over the past few years. These pants sound absolutely fab I think I need some myself.

  26. These are amazing! My mind is blown I had never seen this before. I don’t have periods anymore (wish they made pretty bladder control underwear), but I am going to show this to my daughter for my granddaughter even though she’s not there yet. It’s good to be prepared. Now is there anything for the emotional rollercoasters?

  27. Where were these when I was a girl going through that time of the month? I am grateful for these, for when my daughters get that age.

  28. These sound so great and so easier to use than pads. I wish these were around when I was younger

  29. I need some of these! Leaking is the worst, and I hate the waste of using pantiliners throughout my period.

  30. I’d pick these up for my daughter to try! She hasn’t started yet, but will soon, and I know she worries about leakage. We talk openly about what happens when her period comes, which I think is always important.

  31. GENIUS INVENTION right here!!!!! GENIUS! Seriously, way to bring confidence back to little girls who just start their period!!

  32. I’ve never heard of these, but you’re right they would have been great for me when I was starting all this stuff as a young girl. I’ll have to check them out.
