|Woman wearing period proof underpants|
(Scroll down for video) A company announced that it began selling period proof underpants, which will allow women to forgot about buying tampons and pads.
The new underpants are being sold by New York based Thinx.
The panties were designed by three women in New York, Miki Agrawal, her twin sister of Radha, and their friend Antonia Dunbar.
Their manufacturing facility is located in Sri Lanka.
The panties come in three varieties, Thong for light days, Cheeky for medium days and Hiphuggers for heavy days.
Each panty is made with patented technology that takes the place of normal sanitary pads.
Hiphuggers can hold as much liquid as two tampons.
The panties are washable and hygienic, and the prices start at just $20.
Thinx is also donating money from each pair sold to Uganda AFRIpads, which is organization that allows girls to go to school when they have their periods by giving them free pads.
