SHE THINX. Everyone at Friendspire Fitness is wearing them.

For those of you who remember, I worked at lululemon. And I’m not sure if I told you this story, but I only applied for a job at lululemon because I loved the way my butt looked in their leggings (and I was 100% positive that I would get a discount on said leggings). HOWEVER, the time I spent working at lululemon was the best investment I could have made in myself. My mental wellness sharpened, I was physically stronger and I surrounded myself with a community of friends who aren’t afraid of the word “sweat”.

To this day, we gush about the playlists that rocked our worlds during spin class, the progress in our flexibility at yoga and the clothing brands that wick the sweat right off of us. We even talk about the underwear we wear during workouts… and let me tell you, they are fancy. CUE: Thinx

HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THINX? Last month I attended Emily Turner and Claire Goulds’s monthly Friendspire Fitness Event. Wait… what’s Friendspire? Friendspire Fitness is a passion project created by Emily & Claire- they choose 1 day a month (out of their existing teaching schedules- Emily is at SoulCycle and Claire’s at FLEX TRX) to host an event that focuses on partner workouts, followed by wine, cheese and snacks. I mean, can it get any better? 

Well yes, yes it can. Emily and Claire are big on philanthropy and event proceeds go to a different charity each month. On top of donations, Emily and Claire announced that they were asked to be the newest ambassadors for Thinx, an underwear company that is on a mission to change the world one panty at a time. Can you say, game on?

BEYOND UNDERWEAR: Thinx was created to support girls in Africa because the creators found out that millions of girls drop out of school because they lack the resources to manage their menstruation. I know, I had NO clue.

THINX GIVES BACK: For every purchase, Thinx supplies 7 young girls in Africa with washable AFRIpads so they have materials to use during their time of the month. In other words, every pair you purchase will help someone in need. Learn more on TEDX.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THINX: The technology in this underwear is perfect for workouts. Thinx material is moisture wicking, anti-microbial, and absorbant. There are four styles: Thong, Cheeky, Hiphugger, and Luxe (PS: you definitely heard it from me that they’re coming out with a Sporty version in the fall).

ORDER ME A PAIR…OR TEN: I tested the Hiphugger and Cheeky under my lululemon Run Inspire Crops and they fit like a glove. Like, they didn’t pitch at all. They blended with my workout pants, and they were moisture wicking. See for yourself, I’m wearing the cheeky in the video!

You can learn more about Thinx and how they are made to be worn during your cycle on their website. And if you like what you just read… order a bunch so you can give back to the community and feel good about what you’re wearing under your workout crops!

PS: Join me at the next Friendspire event on August 21st with lululemon Meatpacking and wear your Thinx!
