For me, pads aren't the most comfortable thing, and tampons are even worse.  I considered getting a menstrual cup in the past (to reduce waste!) but it just seemed like a different version of a tampon.  So when I heard of THINX, the panties that absorb without leaking, bulking, or staining, I was excited.

I chose the boyshort style, which is designed for medium days.

THINX fit true to size (I'm 27", usually pant size 4, and ordered a size small), and are very stretchy and comfortable.  To my surprise, the whole inside is actually lined (with a bit extra in the crotch area, of course) with a breathable cotton fabric.  I was worried they would feel like weird squeaky disco shorts but they feel and look just like regular modern underwear except a bit thicker.  The line doesn't show underneath normal pants.

As for the most important part, the functionality: I wore this on day 3 of menstruation, and it did not make me feel vulnerable at all around other people; I almost forgot I was on my period!  It soaked everything in (the black made it barely visible) without feeling wet, bulking up or leaking, and I felt comfortable enough to wear it for half a day before changing.  Soaking and washing was quick and simple with a small plastic tub, and it dried within 24 hours, ready to be reused.

The verdict: I would highly recommend these!  As someone who is going to be on my feet all the time and getting close to people (in the clinic/hospital), these are very liberating (not an exaggeration)!
