Becoming a mom, has changed my life in so many ways that I never thought would change. For example, finding time….close to impossible! Or eating immediately after cleaning up poo.
But, what I never thought I’d go through were the little accidents that I would have whenever I sneezed, cough, laughed too hard or doing jumping jacks with my kids. And… believe you me, it was an embarrassing problem to have. It’s almost the same as saying.. *and she whispers*, “I only occasionally did my kegel exercises”. What I’m talking about is the occasional oopsies.. I must stress that it’s not a chronic situation for me, one that warrants proper medical treatment.
When I received the STRIDE femme panties, I was in the middle of a bad cold. Lots of coughing (hard coughing) and sneezing. It was.. suffice to say, a good time to test these out. I had with me, two of STRIDE femme products; a mid rise brief and a seamless pair of panties, both with light leak protection. The built-in protection felt very comfortable, and it never felt like I was wearing a liner or a pad. Just like my everyday panties. I never had that wet feeling or, did it feel ‘soaked’.
What I really liked.. were the seamless pair. No VPL panty is always a winner with me..and the fact that I didn’t have to wear a pad whenever I had a girls’ night out, knowing that it would be a night of hilarity and laughter, I could wear my STRIDE with pride.
The best thing about STRIDE Femme..is that, you can wash and wear it without thinking twice, whilst saving our landfills.
About STRIDE femme :
STRIDE femme panties are developed with a patented OQUOS™ technology. The first layer of the OQUOS™ technology wicks away moisture 8 times more effectively than cotton for superior dryness. It is designed to maintain its shape to improve body contact during normal activity (such as walking, running or sneezing) and will continue to provide comfort and protection for up to 100 washes. Plus, it’s so discreet no one will know you’re wearing it!
The patented OQUOS™ sub-layers rapidly disperse light leaks, naturally deodorizing while the super-absorbent fibers contained in the liner absorb up to an ounce of moisture.
Buy It! : STRIDE does offer various other types of panties, namely French Cut Brief, Sport Bikini, Lacy Thong and also STRIDE homme (for men!). It’s very comfortable, wicking away moisture, staying dry to touch and breathable. You can find a list of retailers here, in US, Canada or get it delivered internationally to your doorstep, here.
We’ve had a group of reviewers that had a chance to test them out as well, and here’s what they have to say about STRIDE femme.
Mom 2 BB Reviews : To be perfectly honest, I was a little worried about the issue of odour due to not wearing any panty liner. However, after a full day of trial, it appears that the OQUOS™ patented fabric technology proved to be excellent. It was able to absorb moisture, deodorize it and keeps me feeling fresh and confident.
Almanac Queen : It was excellent! This panty is so, so seamless, so light, you’d never notice you are even wearing one! *blush* The underside layer is soft and comfy and throughout the days of trying it on, I’ve never felt anything less than uncomfortable because the material is so silky smooth and is cool to the touch and feel.
A Pregnant Pause : Cloth-diapering mothers – STRIDE underwear is like an all-in-one? Like all-in-one cloth diapers, there is a waterproof layer underneath the gusset. If there’s one thing I could change in the STRIDE underwear, it would be to remove this waterproof layer because I had a bit of “scrunch-scrunch” feeling when I put it on;-)
Rambling Moo : When I put it on, I found it was really soft against my skin and I don’t feel weird or anything with the thicker layer of built in liner. After putting on for a full day, I found at the end of the day I was feeling dry and fresh.
Sasha’s bla bla bla : My first time wearing this was to the gym with my husband. I was running, cycling and working my Non VPL butt happily because I know that everything is A-Okay.
