Stride Everyday Panties Review and Giveaway

The story of Stride Everyday panties begins with its founder, Wendy Spencer. She started out as a marathoner that continued to run throughout her pregnancy. After the birth of her son, she noticed that, like many if not most women who have had a child, she was experiencing stress incontinence. She looked for options to deal with the problem of occasional leaks and found pantyliner to be both expensive and not environmentally friendly. She also wanted a solution to make her feel sexy. This lead to the development of the Stride Everyday panty.

The Stride Everyday panty is unique in that has patented fabric technology in the panty's gusset that essential replaces the need for panty liner. This technology wicks moisture away from the top layer and deodorizes to keep you and your clothes dry. One of the best things about the Stride Everyday panty is that they offer 4 different styles of panties to allow you to choose the style that makes you feel the best, available in all different sizes. It also is machine washable up to 100 washes and can save you about $125 a year on panty liners. These panties are great for exercise, pre and post-natal, traveling, back-up protection, or just every day comfort.

The panties have been praised by the media and celebrity stylists, such as Gretta Monahan, TV personality and co-host of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style. They are also featured in the most recent issue of Shape Magazine.

My take? When I was first approached about doing a review for a panty I was a little uncertain. Then a panty that was meant to deal with stress incontinence? Then I really wasn't sure. The fact is, if you are expecting a child or have had a child, this is something that most women have to deal with, but not really something we want to talk about. But after carrying a 9 pound baby the first time and a pretty big baby this time, this is something I need. Getting kicked in the bladder all day long is not so much fun.

So truth be told, I am in LOVE with these panties. I was sent the seamless and mid-rise panties to try. They are made of this great, micro-fiber kind of fabric that is so comfortable to wear. The rise on both is great too, as I am not the kind of girl who likes to wear granny panties. The panty liner in the gusset is great too. You really don't feel like you are wearing anything extra. I HATE pads and panty liners as I feel like they never stay in place. This is a great alternative. The only thing I don't like is that I wasn't approached earlier in my pregnancy to review these because I would have worn them the whole time. But I am sure that I will get great use out of them post-partum. I really would recommend them to any woman who is expecting, has children, or even for child-less women as back-up.
