I have never made it a secret that when it comes to underwear, I enjoy a good full brief and/or a good high waist. I embrace and celebrate the wide array of underwear available to us. I recently discovered Dear Kate, which takes those cuts that I love to the next level with multiple levels of fabric linings to create leak-resistant underwear.

Dear Kate's founder utilized her chemical engineering background to create the patent-pending fabric lining each pair of underwear. Comprised of two luxurious microfiber layers and a thin, breathable outer layer, this is revolutionary fabric to the rescue.

A fully lined pair of underwear can hold 3 teaspoons of liquid comfortably. We don’t really talk about it openly, but 60% of women experience overflow during that time of the month every month, according to the Dear Kate website.

But even without the technology, the lingerie is super cute! Bonus: it’s made in NYC, is available in plus sizes, and arrives in the sweetest little package. I was given a pair to try and highly recommend them; they are silky soft and very comfortable.

If you’d like some Dear Kates of yourself, the code FIELDGUIDED will get 25% off through January 31.  My personal faves: the Margot, the Ella, and the Rosa.


  1. wha? I can't believe it took this long for period panties to be invented! at least, cute ones.

  2. Love this idea! It'd be nice to have something other than just my oldest, saddest underwear to put on when I have my period.

  3. Pretty period pants! Yay!

  4. I just bought myself some of these to try, they are absolutely wonderful, and the fit is perfect! I'll definitely be adding more to my inventory.

  5. They seem so ultra comfy! And pretty!

  6. So happy to see Dear Kate's here! We carry them at The Period Store too! :)
