Stride Everyday Review

Do you have kids? Did they use your bladder as a punching bag? I know mine did! I wish I could say that I’m one of those women who loved being pregnant. The truth is that with each of them I felt like I’d been invaded by some alien life form intent on destroying me from the inside out! It wouldn’t have been so bad if the damage magically fixed itself after they were born. Sadly it didn’t.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m proud of my stretch marks, I really am! I am thankful that I gave birth to three healthy strong kids and that truly is a miracle. I just wish I had my bladder back and that my hernia would fix itself instead of requiring a surgery I’m not willing to have any time soon.

So what’s a girl to do with bladder problems? Wear panty liners for the rest of your life? Never jump on a trampoline again? Okay I could probably go the rest of my life with out the trampoline but my kids love it so I do it. Should I live in fear of an unexpected sneeze?

There is a better solution! It’s called Stride femme. These panties have a built in liner that is washable! Why has no one thought of this before? The liner absorbs up to 1 ounce of fluid and contains a deodorizer so you can still feel fresh and clean. The panties last for up to 100 washes so it’s also environmentally friendly.

I have to say I was a bit skeptical about this product. It just didn’t seem like a washable panty liner was going to be that great of a product. I was surprised at the quality of their construction and how comfortable they are. I’ve worn them twice and haven’t had a problem with them. They are comfortable, soft and pretty. There are several styles available such as French cut brief and lacy thong.

Stride femme was founded by Wendy Spencer a momprenuer. She say this about Stride “Research shows that most women will experience some sort of light leaks in their lifetime,” explains Spencer. “Whether it’s a new mom looking for a cost-effective solution that helps her feel like a woman again, or an avid runner looking for comfortable protection while she’s on the treadmill, STRIDE Everyday offers a range of solutions for all kinds of women. Stride Everyday is going to be a featured Editors pick in Shape Magazine this month.

I was given a pair of panties for review purposes. I was not financially compensated for this review and this is my honest opinion.
