Stride Everyday Review and Giveaway


ABOUT STRIDE EVERYDAY:

STRIDE Everyday™ is a breakthrough in fashionable women’s underwear and feminine hygiene! Our perfect 2-in-1 solution is designed with a patented fabric technology sewn into the gusset – replacing the need to use pantiliners.



For various ages and sizes – whether it’s for exercise, pre- and post-natal, travelling, daily “back-up” protection or just everyday comfort.


Machine washable too!
 
ABOUT THE FOUNDER AND HER STORY:
 
One thing to know about me – I love a good challenge! When a friend dared me to run a marathon, I thought, “Sure – why not?” So I ran that marathon, and then did another, and then another. I continued running through my pregnancy, enjoying the opportunity to stay active. But after the birth of my son, like many other women out there, I was shocked to realize I had stress incontinence. The “embarrassing” problem of always worrying about what might happen if you laugh too hard, or sneeze unexpectedly. So I looked for a solution to the issue, but was disappointed that there were really no good options out there. Sure, you could use pantiliners, but they’re pretty uncomfortable and are definitely not an environmentally friendly option. There was no way I was going to use pantiliners every day! I wanted something functional, that would still allow me to feel sexy. And so the STRIDE solution was born. We’ve created sexy, practical, and panties that help women deal with the issue of light leaks – without anything being disposable. So let’s take light leaks out of the closet and toss the embarrassment to the curb. After all, this happens to 1 in 3 women from various ages and ethnicities!!



I always questioned why feminine products were disposable...how is that a good thing? The more women I talk to about coughing, jumping, laughing, sneezing, everyone has a story and everyone has a “leak”, so why are we keeping this issue a secret? Women have been told to hide this forever, but I think it’s time to talk about it and embrace that part of being a woman. Let’s shake up this category, let’s laugh about being a woman and all the little issues we deal with on a daily basis. Let’s embrace being part of a woman and celebrate our stories


So, the search began. Wendy and her team worked with a strong R&D partner to design the patented fabric technology and permanently built it into the panty’s gusset. The patented technology is revolutionary in its super-absorbent ability to wick moisture from the top layer, absorb and deodorize…so you and your clothes stay dry.
 
 

 
MY EXPERIENCE AND THOUGHTS:
 
At the age of 27, I never thought that I would have to worry about incontinence issues. However, about 2 months ago I started having light leakage. While it is highly embarrassing, it is also very common. It may be a slight cough, a laugh or even a jog that causes it. For me, it seems to be everyday movement that causes the problem. I recently learned from my Doctor that mine is due to weak muscles and can be remedied over time with Kegel exercises. In the meantime, I have been using pads to prevent my underwear from being soiled. While pads are working, they are a pain. They sometimes get twisted, don't stick correctly, they are a hassle to put in everyday and even more of a hassle to change out when they are soiled. So, I was extremely excited to learn about Stride Everyday. This underwear are genius! They allow you to have a day (or more if you buy several pairs) of peace without the hassle of dealing with pads. Check out how they work: 
 
 
So, not only do these wonderful underwear soak up any leaks, they also deodorize! A few pads may claim to do that, but they don't. I choose to review the Sport Bikini in Black Print. Here are a few of the styles (I choose the far right Sports Bikini):
 
 
They really do have a style for everyone from the sexy lacy thong to the much more conservative french cut breif. I have always been a bikini girl myself. : )

The first thing I would like to say is that these underwear are super cute and you would never know that they have a built in pad. My Husband knows that they are from Stride Everyday and he was telling me how cute he thinks they are yesterday when I wore them!

I have tested my Stride Everyday underwear on three separate occasions to guarantee that I had the full experience. All three times, I was very impressed with these underwear. I do sometimes notice the pad when I very first put on the underwear, but I quickly forget about it. They are very comfortable and a thousand times better than wearing your favorite undies with a pad in them. They are now my favorite underwear and the ones that I first reach for when laundry is done.

The thing that I was most impressed with is the deodorizer. It really works! I leaked a small amount on these underwear just like I have been on my pads, only the underwear did not smell! The absorption feature is also amazing. These underwear not only didn't smell, but they made me feel dry because they absorbed the leakage. With these underwear you can resume your normal activities without having to worry about a thing. It is a blessing to feel "normal" for even a day after experiencing leakage.

If you have had any sort of bladder leakage, or even if you tend to sweat a lot in that area, you should check out Stride Everyday. The underwear are $14.99- $24.99 and will save you money over time (you won't have to spend all that money on annoying pads!). They will soon have a Men's line as well.
