Instead Softcup Saved my Holiday Party!

With the holidays quickly approaching and a million things on my plate not only as a mom and wife but a blogger too I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.  At the last minute I am told we have a holiday party to attend at my husband's boss' house. YIKES!  What to wear, who is going to watch the kids and wait, mommy just got her lovely monthly reminder that she is a woman! There is nothing like "Aunt Flo" showing up to put me into the not wanting to party mood.

Great, so much for the hopes of not carrying my big mommy bag, no cute little clutch to go with my dependable little black dress stashed in the closet right?  Then I remembered that I recently found the Instead Softcup.  Small, discreet and can be worn for up to 12 hours means I get to take my cute little purse after all!  And with 12 hours of period protection to depend on I can actually enjoy myself at the party and not have to worry about running to the bathroom repeatedly.
While reading up on all the useful information of their website I came across this cute little Softcup Purse Pack that I wish I would have been able to use but now that I do know about it I can purchase one for keeping a couple in my purse at all times.  I love that it is so small, just the perfect size to store two Softcups conveniently and it is a great hot pink mama color.
Besides the length of time you can use 1 Softcup, there are several other great benefits of this revolutionary alternative to tampons/pads:

  • Softcup eliminates menstrual odor
  • Softcup is comfortable—you can't even feel it once it's inserted
  • Softcups have no wings, no strings 
  • Softcup is not linked to TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome)*
*In more than 10 years and 120 million Softcups sold, Softcup has never had a reported incidence of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). TSS is believed to be caused by the toxin-producing strains of the bacterium Staphylococcus Aureus. Population studies suggest that the risk of TSS is related to tampon absorbency. The higher the tampon absorbency, the higher the risk of contracting TSS. Unlike tampons, Softcup is non-absorbent, and does not change the bacteria levels naturally present in the body.

With all this great news about Softcup, be sure to pick yours up today and don't let that time of the month ruin your holiday plans!
Buy It:

You can purchase Softcup directly from the Softcup online store or locate a retailer near you right on their site as well!

  1. I've not heard of these, but definitely sound like something to try for things like holiday parties or family gatherings! Great information! Thank you for sharing!!

  2. Hmmm. Interesting. I have not heard of these either. Might have to try them sometime... I don't use tampons because I (usually, when not pregnant (or trying to become pregnant)) have an IUD in, and I don't want it to accidentally get caught in the tampon and pulled out. I bet that wouldn't be a worry with this! That's pretty cool!

  3. I had never hears of these before. I will have to keep an eye out. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I saw a similar product on a blog a few months ago & started thinking about switching to them but now I think I may be convinced! :)

  5. Interesting... I'll have to look into them a bit more. The idea of 12 hours of protection sounds amazing!

  6. Never even heard of these before. Sounds like they really work! Wow!


  7. Sorry, Courtney, but the instructions say it's not to be worn by IUD users : (
