8 Creative Ways to Use Proof Leakproof Undies (Not Just for Periods!)

One of the best perks of Proof leak proof underwear is the versatility. Whether you’re on your period, working out, or trying to avoid unexpected bladder leaks, our leakproof panties are perfect for everyday wear—even in the most unusual circumstances. With an absorbent core, moisture-wicking fabric, and patented LeakLoc® technology, Proof underwear can take you anywhere. To prove just how versatile our panties are, we’ve put together a list of some of the most creative uses for leak proof underwear.

1. For Marathons

For avid runners, it’s no secret that nature can call at the most inconvenient times. In fact, long-distance runners often end up peeing their pants, whether intentional or not. This uncertainty makes leak proof underwear a great option for marathoners. One California marathon runner relieved herself during a race rather than stopping and messing up her time—and was still able to reach a personal record. Now that’s leak proof protection you can trust!

2. Wild Workouts

Wearing leak proof underwear while exercising is actually one of the more common uses for our products, but Proof undies are great for unconventional sweat sessions, as well. Whether you’re into roller derby, dressage, or aerial sports, our leak proof underwear won’t let you down. Acroyoga teacher Christine even trusts Proof while balancing upside down! 

3. Vanlife & Outdoor Living

Another great creative use for leak proof underwear is wearing them on the road and out in nature. When you’re far from home and far from running water, reusable undies can be a life-saver! Vanlifer Amber McDaniel finds period panties especially useful for her lifestyle. After use, she simply places used panties in a “wet bag” and waits until she has an opportunity to do laundry again.

Leak proof underwear also makes for happy campers. No need to worry about access to running water for menstrual cup cleansing, and no need to find a place to throw away disposable pads and tampons.

4. The Dreaded “Snee”

We love seeing how Proof fans use their leak proof underwear against unexpected leaks. Ashlan Cousteau pointed out that her Proof undies were perfect for protection against the dreaded “snee” (sneeze + pee) during pregnancy. They’re also great for leak protection while jumping up and down at a concert, playing at the trampoline park with kids, and even laughing with friends. 

5. After Baby

There’s nothing pleasant about postpartum recovery—especially when it comes to postpartum bleeding. Some women experience spotting for up to six weeks after delivery. As Chrissy Teigen put it, “No one told me I would be coming home in diapers, too.” Luckily, with Proof leak proof underwear, moms can focus on what matters most: taking care of the new addition to their family. Rather than dealing with bulky hospital pads and mesh underwear, Proof undies are the perfect postpartum recovery essential. Plus, our maternity leak proof underwear works with your body before, during, and after pregnancy, so you won’t even need to buy an extra pair after delivery! Beverly Mitchell rocks her Everyday Undie while pregnant and during recovery.

6. Planet-Friendly Period Protection

One of our favorite ways to use Proof undies? As a sustainable replacement for disposable period products. In 2018 alone, 5.8 billion tampons were sold in the U.S. That’s a lot of plastic and waste ending up in landfills every year! Not to mention the energy required to manufacture disposable products. Reusable leak proof underwear can be used as an eco-friendly replacement for disposable pads, tampons, panty liners, and adult incontinence diapers. 

7. Protecting Your Body

A few decades ago, Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) made headlines as tampons became linked to the disease. And although tampon manufacturing has improved since the 1980s, there is still a risk of developing TSS when using high-absorbency tampons. TSS survivor Rylie Whitten is passionate about sharing her story and promoting the use of safer period products, like leak proof underwear. With Proof undies, you can rest easy knowing that your period products are safe for your body.

8. In Space

Period panties are out of this world! You might not find yourself traveling in space anytime soon, but for astronauts experiencing an out-of-order leaky toilet recently, leak proof underwear was the solution. Maintenance workers discovered a loose waste tube in the 13-foot-wide capsule and instructed astronauts not to use the toilet until it could be repaired. Instead, crew members on board the SpaceX Crew Dragon relied on absorbent undergarments during their trip back to Earth. Thank goodness for leak protection! 

We could think of a hundred other scenarios in which leak proof underwear might come in handy, from eliminating the notorious after-sex wet spot to waiting in line for Black Friday deals. The possibilities are truly endless. Whether you’re traveling through space, living in a van, or just trying to do your part to take care of the planet, Proof undies are the most versatile options in your undie drawer.
