Those of you who know me in real life, know that I will talk about anything and I mean ANYTHING. So really you’re not terribly surprised that I’m going to talk about underwear today. I mean, we’ve already tackled men’s underwear, right?
Back in August at BlogHer ’12 I was introduced to the company Dear Kate. Dear Kate makes ladies underwear. Not just any ladies underwear though, they make ladies underwear designed to help guard against leaks. Period leaks. Pee leaks. Yep. I said it, you heard me. I can only imagine what you’re imagining though. Leak-resistant underwear…must be…utilitarian? Guess again. THIS is what Dear Kates look like:
You can see why when Dear Kate reached out to me to see if I’d like to try a pair, I agreed. Good looking, sexy even, lingerie that promises to help protect against leaks? Alright, I’ll give it a go. Well, damn if the darn things don’t work! I was amazed. So much so that I have actually told at least two female friends in person that I wore these panties all day, with no pantyliner and uh…was fine. And let me tell you, after having had a baby who bounced on my bladder all day long for 9 months, that’s saying something. Dear Kates are made of 3 breathable layers of absorbent, wicking and leak resistant fabrics. They can hold 3 teaspoons of liquid! I found them to be light and extremely comfortable when on and very, very pretty.
For the truly curious, here’s a direct link to the Dear Kate website where you can read all about their fabrics and how the underwear works. Made for women, by women and they just plain work. I’d love to toss out all my period undies and replace them with these gorgeous things.
To that end, Dear Kate is offering you, my dear readers $10 off your first order – now go get yourself some fabulous undies!
They’re perfect for chasing your energetic, choo choo train obsessed, tantrum prone toddler through Grand Central Terminal at Christmastime. At least I look good underneath it all…
Disclosure: I received a pair of Dear Kate underwear to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed above are my own.
