I know it can be really hard to find the right size when shopping online, especially when shopping for underwear, and even more so when you're trying a new brand. Here at Nourished Life, we stock a range of period underwear, including awesome brand THINX! Period undies are amazing for replacing pads, tampons or menstrual cups, or even just for added protection and peace of mind during your period. They come in a range of sizes and styles though, so it's important to make sure you're ordering your perfect pair.

How to find your perfect THINX fit

THINX period undies are true to size, so it's best to go for your usual size. It's also really important to note though that the special technology which keeps us leak-free makes their sizes more of a snug fit than average undies... this means that they will feel a bit different to your regular pairs, maybe a bit tighter, but rest assured they are meant to fit that way!

To find your perfect size, it's recommended to use a measuring tape and check your measurements against THINX sizing for the most accurate fit.

Simply measure your waist just beneath your belly button, and your hips around the largest part of your buttocks.

To find the perfect fit in the THINX range for teenagers, you should also measure the waist and hips before purchasing. Just like the main range, THINX BTWN styles are true to classic sizing for girls' underwear and clothing, but may feel a tad snug. Since they are specially designed for tween and teen body shapes, THINX BTWN may not be suitable for adult shapes as they feature snugger leg holes, a narrower gusset, and straighter hips.
