Today was one of my happiest days so far this year…today I received my first pair of Rhode Island’s own Sexy Period underwear. I know what you may be thinking…how could underwear make you this happy? Well, read on and you will soon find out
Let me take you back a year and half ago. I had just had the worst period of my life, ruining about 5 pairs of underwear in just that one week alone. I was beginning to think I was going to have to wear ratty old granny panties every single time I was hit with ‘Miss Molly with the Red Hat’. That was of course until Julie Sygiel and Eunice Ping, Brown University graduates and the brains behind Sexy Period, walked into my office. As you can well imagine, this was a concept I was giddy over – fashionable, leak resistant underwear for that time of the month. It was like they were reading my mind. Could they possibly be God’s gift to women everywhere? I think so!
Eunice and Julie were initially unsure if this would be something other women would want so they started walking around campus asking their fellow Brown students what they thought of the idea. The response was overwhelmingly in their favor. When they came to see me, they had just received the top honor at the 6th annual Rhode Island Elevator Pitch Competition and were runners up in the Rhode Island Business Plan Competition, so I knew they meant business.
Julie has since taken over the company (Eunice is in music school enjoying her first love) and she has truly made an impact. After 2 years of research and development (I was one of the many women who tested out materials for them) she recently had her first Preview Sale – which is how I received my first pair along with 499 other people! You didn’t get to grab a pair for yourself? Their next production round will be shipped on April 29th, so grab them now at www.sexyperiod.com.
According to their website, Sexy Period panties are made of fabric that has 3 distinct layers to keep you protected. The inner layers wick away and absorb fluids, while the outer layer traps and prevents leaks so you’re kept feeling comfortable and confident. Their breathable, leak resistant panties make embarrassing period spills a thing of the past. Sexy Period panties are designed to be worn with your regular pad/tampon routine as backup protection.
Sexy Period comes in three styles: Blossoming Beauty, Friday Night Fabulous, and Simply Stunning. All styles come in bikini, hipster or cheeky and sizes range from xsmall to xlarge. Prices range from $32 for a bikini in Simply Stunning to $44 for a hipster or cheeky in Friday Night Fabulous. But really, can you put a price on being sexy during that time of the month?
I can tell you one thing, I have never been so excited to get my period. No joke!
