Stride Everyday Panties: Review and Giveaway!


I must admit I was intrigued by the premise of Stride everyday panties with light leak protection. So many women I know have this problem, especially after giving birth. The only real solution, I've heard, is to wear a pantyliner, all day, every day. That can get really expensive and create a lot of waste! You might think that a product offering leak protection would be bulky or ugly, but Stride is just the opposite. What a cool, revolutionary product Stride Everyday is.
Marathon runner and mom, Wendy Spencer, created Stride Everyday after becoming frustrated with the lack of quality products available to control light bladder leakage. As many as one in three women deal with the issue, so she figured there should be a product available to them that combines function and fashion.

Stride panties contain Oquos technology. I had never heard of this before, but it's pretty neat.
from the Stride Everyday website:
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.

These panties are super fashionable, there are five different styles to choose from and prices range from $19.99 to $24.99 so there really is something for everyone!


My Experience

These are seriously the most comfortable pair of panties that I own. I opted for the seamless style and I can't even feel them. I imagined wearing a pantyliner and how uncomfortable it gets when it twists and crumples and comes unstuck, uggg. Well, Stride is nothing like that at all, I love 'em.

Buy it
Of course you can buy Stride Everyday panties from their website, but you can also look for retailers who carry them. I'm so excited to see that Bartell Drugs (a Seattle area drug store) is now a carrier of Stride. There's a Bartell's just down the street from me.

I love the Seamless, and the Violet OR Black print, but they don't have my size. I'd have to get black, but that's okay with me!
