Giveaway: STRIDE Everyday Panty

STRIDE Everyday!


Like any new mom when I first discovered I was pregnant, I was over the moon full of happiness, totally content with the way my body would grow and develop as the baby developped.  I don't really think anyone is prepared for the shock of a tiny little baby, inside a womb, kicking and punching the way mine did, keeping me awake at night, and landing some pretty nasty kicks right on the bladder.  Then you think, when the baby is born, everything will go right back to normal, right?  No more leaks when sneezing, no more having to squeeze the legs shut when you have to laugh or cough, longing for the days when you can jump or run again in freedom.

Imagine the shock when you have the baby and then you realize that things may not go back exactly the way they were before you had your baby.  And then you have another child (like me).  And then you have a third or possibly a fourth child (not like me).  So what is a mom to do?  Up until now, the only option was to live with tampons or pantyliners for the rest of your life, and help contribute to the landfills, or no more running, jumping, sneezing, coughing...I'm sure you get the drift.


Luckily for many women out there, Wendy Spencer was surprised to discover she had problems with light incontinence during her pregnancy (although not lucky that she discovered she was incontinent).  Unable to find any comfortable or discreet ways to deal with the problem, she founded Berkshire Axis Innovations, a company committed to discovering new ways to make the 1 in 4 women who suffer from incontinence feel more comfortable.  Using a patented new technology, OQUOS, this unique fabric had the potential to be woven right into women's underwear in order to act as a pantyliner.  Thus, STRIDE Everyday was born.  



When I was first contacted by STRIDE Everyday to review a pair of their revolutionay underwear, I couldn't help but picture "granny panties" in my mind.  And I know my husband had a good chuckle when I told him what I was reviewing as he couldn't picture something with that kind of technology to be anywhere near sexy.  Well, I was pleasantly surprised by what I received.  And they were sexy enough for my husband too!!!  Luckily, I am not one of those women who suffer from incontinence, but I can certainly see the advantages of this panty.  I tried them out while exercising, and they worked wonderfully and were extremely comfortable.  There was no sweat odours after the workout, and when I washed them, they looked as new as when I first pulled them out of the pretty little box in which they came.

STRIDE Everyday panty was comfortable and came in pretty, feminine colours.  You can get them in nude, dusty rose, dusty blue or black.  You can choose from a variety of types that suit your own personal style as well as a variety of colours that come with each style, colours that will appeal to any woman.  They range in price from $19.99 to $24.99  And for the men who would like something to lick away moisture, or those little leaks they do not like to discuss, STRIDE Homme was released in August 2010. 

STRIDE Everyday was also featured in Shape magazine in September 2010 as an editor's pick.


Overall, I was very satisfied with the panty I received.  It was comfortably, cute, and seamless, and I now prefer it over my regular underwear when I am working out.  I am definitely going to be purchasing more panties from STRIDE Everyday.
