Q:

Dear Women of 100 Hour Board,

NSFMen. My question has to do with female bodily functions and how to be genuinely sanitary and covenant keeping. I know I'm not the only one to wonder.

I've worn garments for about 2.5 years now. Each time my pantyliner ends up trying to practice Brazilian waxes again, I think, "there has to be a better way." I know I can wear granny panties under the garments when Aunt Flo comes to visit, and I'm grateful. I'm wondering about finding a pantyliner for the rest of the month that actually lines my panties and not my inter-gluteal cleft.

Do you have a favorite garments style and pantyliner brand combo that actually protects your garment bottoms and stays in place?

Dear you,

I almost exclusively wear the Carinessa garments. I like the liners that don't have sticky wings. They're sticky on the back but otherwise pretty chill. They can pinch but are mostly harmless.

Deer Cheewok,

I understand that you're seeking female advice for your female concerns--may you find what you seek--but does stigmatizing the discussion of periods, bleeding, sanitary pads, and other normal female body functions/hygiene really benefit either women or the men for whom these discussions aren't "safe?" 

Suerte,

Cheesy Ewok,

Try the Always Dailies Thin panty liners with Edge2Edge Adhesive. They usually fit well inside the seams of the gusset on garments, so they tend to stay put better. And the edge to edge sticky backing lives up to the advertising (assuming it doesn't stick to itself when you peel off the paper backing initially).

If it's any consolation, my 45-year-old sister recently complained that she "perioded" her skirt at work because she couldn't get the pad to lay down properly. So, you're not alone.

You may also look into alternatives to pads, too, if you feel they are lacking in the cleanliness department. Period panties may work better for you. And diva cups or tampons are cleaner externally to deal with than pads.

Good luck,
