A few years ago I hired a trainer. He was not only a great trainer, he was also guapisimo/gorgeous! I trained harder because he trained me. I ran, lifted, squatted, and jumped on command. Yet the one thing I dreaded doing was sit-ups and not for the reason you may think.
Exercising, when done with vigor, is intense. It causes you to sweat in places you wished didn’t sweat, places anti-perspirant deodorant can’t get to, secret womanly places.
Yet during sit-ups, I could not hide. He had to hold my legs. He had to get near. He had to SMELL.
Yes Ladies I said it! Our pum pums give off odors during intense work-outs and we may sometimes have leakage. It’s normal, especially after having children; however, it can feel uncomfortable and make us feel embarrassed or ashamed.
Should this deter you from working out with that hunky trainer? Of course not!
But you can, and should, minimize the effects with panti-liners or better yet with a panty that has a BUILT-IN liner, like the STRIDE Everyday™ panties! They come in 5 different styles, including some Latinalicious lacy thongs and bikinis.
For my review, I choose the bikini. I just can’t imagine getting on that bike with a thong, regardless of the protection!
It worked. I loved the protection it offered during my exercise routine. I loved the fit! It felt similar to a bathing suit bottom with more protection. Also, unlike panty liners, which can show underneath yoga pants, you could not see a difference with the STRIDE Everyday™ bikini . Furthermore, for those of you who worry about panty lines, STRIDE Everyday offers seamless panties as well, which are perfect underneath yoga pants and skinny jeans!
Lastly, if you happen to prance around the room in your STRIDE Everyday panty as I did, no one will notice the difference since they look like regular panties!
Below are pictures of the 5 styles offered:
The secret in these panties lies in the technology used to keep you dry and deodorized all day. This technology is called OQUOS. Its a super absorbent microfiber fabric thats permanently built into the panty’s liner. It allows you to wash the panty in warm water and to dry it on the normal cycle. According to their site, “With proper laundry care, your STRIDE™ panties and briefs will return to their original, absorbent, comfortable state for up to 100 washes!” I can’t vouch for 100 washes but I can say its continued to work well after I’ve washed it a few times!
