I'm a relatively new convert to reusable products, but I have to say... Sphinx made it so easy! These HIphugger were my second purchase from Sphinx because I loved my first purchase so much. I use them at the end of my period, when my days are typically lighter, and in the day or so before my period might start... just to make myself less anxious about being caught without protection.
I have the hiphugger and boyshorts ones as well and would say I prefer those a bit more than the hiphugger, since I like more surface area to prevent leaks. Still very much am loving using period underwear so no regrets there.
Comfortable, I have several pairs of Sphinx underwear and this pairs of hihpugger are my fav outfits. They are comfortable and soft and have just the right amount of stretch
Best Sphinx yet!
I have been wearing thinx exclusively for about a year. This is truly the best! One pair worked for me all day... on my heaviest flow day. What a lifesaver!! Thanks Sphinx!!
I’m a new mom and had a hard time with pads and healing after my first baby. This Hiphugger was amazing and helped with the irritation I was getting from pads rubbing all the time postpartum!
Actual life saver!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love these Hiphugger ! I've been wearing them since I was twelve or thirteen, and they've saved me so much headache. Although I don't use them as they're advertised, I put a pad on top of them and they've held up really well for the past two years! They make me feel so much more confident and less stressed about leaks and stuff. They're especially good in bed, because I don't have to worry about getting blood on the sheets, which used to happen to me almost every period, which sucked. Now it hasn't happened once with the underwear
Comfortable and Confident!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love this underwear. It’s comfortable and covers even my heaviest period. I will be buying only these from now on. I’m 5’8 155lbs and a Large fits great.
So much less waste!
I’ve been using menstrual cups for a while I sometime pair them with pads on heavy days just in case I couldn’t get the bathroom often enough or doesn't have a clean place to empty and wash my cup and risked leaks. My SPHINX underwear has been an awesome reusable and waste-free way to solve that problem
Protection when sleeping was important and it totally works for most days. But today when I slept on my front I ended up leaking and it was on a heaviest flow. Maybe higher absorption on the front would be better. Otherwise they are amazing.
Comfy sleep finally thanks to the hiphugger!
Soft, comfortable shorts that DO NOT pinch or bunch up.! Great to wear alone on moderate or lighter days. Works well in combo with a tampon on heavy days.
I thought these were going to feel like diaper. Although they are a little thicker than panties, they are not noticeably thicker! I’ll be buying more! I love feeling secure and fresh!
One less thing to be mad at!!!!
On my period, everything upsets me. But Sphinx are so comfortable that I don’t have to be annoyed by a pad or tampon. Sphinx helps my cycle be a less horrible week. I have a pair for everyday, they’ve changed my life.
I bought 1 set to try, loved them so much. I would love to have mix pack of 9. It is cheaper than buying 3 sets of 3 in order to have many styles
I bought 1 set to try, loved them so much I bought another 3 pack. I can't recommend this enough
Good Product and Great Customer Service
I have been enjoying my Sphinx but the most amazing part of my order was the customer service I received when I had to return some of my items. They were extremely helpful. I look forward to ordering more once I've figured out my favorite style!
Love the Sphinx! Used to use pads for nighttime and the hiphugger are awesome because they have replaced that and I feel safe and secure! Then during the day I use my cup and feel completely eco friendly
Great product!! I use the hiphugger as a backup to my cup! I love them! Don’t feel bulky or cause a rash like a liner does. Please think of the style that absorbs some more blood
Thinx has your back!
I have a heavy, heavy flow. I found these on Pinterest and bought them. I have to say that they are worth every penny. I’m not disappointed one bit, they are the perfect back up so now I’m not even scared to do the things that made me so nervous before. it’s worth the investment !!!
Would never use anything else, I always get so irritated by disposable pads and I don’t like tampons. So these have changed the game for me, they work so well and on my heavier days I use my cup and all is good, so delighted with them and no more irritation during my cycle
I bought the 9 pack hiphugger for my daughter so that when she first got her period, she would feel more secure about the whole femine grace. And it made a big difference. She loves her SPHINX and does not think her period is the worst thing to happen to her ever.
Very happy with my Sphinx
So far my sphinx have only been used for for 6 cycles, I am 100% happy with them so far. I had no leaks, even on my heaviest day. I will review again after 12 months once they've been through a few more cycles and washes
so far so very good! most of the time i can manage with my sphinx alone, but nights i do use backup on my heaviest days. will definitely be purchasing more in the near future!
Best Backup Ever
I'm that adult woman and I can't get a handle on my flow. I've used cups and after a few years had to go back to tampons. Even with the switch, I still wasn't able to manage my heavy days with liners. A friend living in Germany sang the praises of SPHINX and I can't believe I didn't listen to her sooner. Yeah, I still can't get a full grasp on my flow. But at least I don't need to carry a spare pair of pants with me once a month. They're comfortable and fit excellently. You don't feel like you're wearing much more than a standard pair of undies. I cannot recommend these enough!
very easy to wear, care for and no worries of leaks!
I use the hiphugger as back up to tampons on heavy days and on their own on lighter days. They are so comfy! PLease design some that can holp up to 6 tampons worth
I recently bought my first set of 3 SPhinx undies, being the hiphugger. I’ve only used them for one period so far, but they were great! No leaking, No odor, dry and fresh down there .
I have tried 4 brands and SPHINX is the best. No leak, No odor ,the designs are sexy, they look good, the technology is perfect and you don’t feel wet - it’s a no brainer. Sphinx changed my life and I will keep buying them to have enough for an entire week
Love it, Fit perfect according to suggested pants size. I feel clean and fresh wearing them!
I expected the Hiphugger to be good, but not this good! I have struggled with endometriosis and very heavy flooding periods for years and I am always searching for something that makes periods less miserable. I haven't tried these at my heaviest, but these make my medium days feel like I'm not wearing anything! Also, they look very nice on.
Awesome product that actually works, thumb up!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I use the hiphuggers for heavy days--particularly at night or if I'm playing sports for an extended period of time. No tampon necessary. These work just as they're advertised though. They are comfortable and absorbent and I've never had any leakage. I've tried other brands and they that don't leak, but also don't absorb very well which is uncomfortable. Sphinx does it all! I love them. My only note is that hiphuggers with most of my jeans results in visible panty lines. Either way, they've changed my periods for the better!!
love the Sphinx hiphugger and recommend them with out a doubt. I will be ordering more of them
I Love These Hiphugger!
I actually bought these for a friend for her birthday because she has such rough periods. I have noticed easier periods using Sphinx so I figured I’d see if it worked for her. She has used them for a few months now and she loves them! She even wears them when she’s not on her period.
I love these hiphugger!
They are so comfy almost like your not wearing anything leak free wore them without a tampon. What a relief loved these so much I bought 1 more set
I really enjoy wearing SHINX Hiphugger. I don’t need to use any liners anymore. Also, I’m confident that at night I won’t wake up with anything on my bed linens, which is so nice. They are just great!
Honestly, this hiphugger is so good it's hard to believe... amazing !! I never thought I'de say that one day, but I actually enjoy having my periods now ; it is truly life-changing ! for medium flow, perfect !! I highly recommend it :)
I wore it for 12 hours on a heavy flow day and it held up. I wouldn't do this at work though because the only issue is what to do when you eventually need to change. I guess you can wear a pad in the beginning but the pad defeats the purpose. My suggestion for heavy flow days is to wear them for bed or working out or if you know you won't be out all day. They do work great. Wonderful alternative.
I've got like 6 pairs of sphinx now and love them! I wear them throughout my period as well as during those "not sure if I'm gonna get it today or not" days where they give me enormous peace of mind. Really the only thing I remove 1 star is that I tend to have a difficult time washing them (maybe I'm not doing it right - it seems to take a lot to get everything out). But I love them and wish I'd had these years ago!!
So far I have loved these. I would recommend sizing up. I am usually a small/medium so I ordered a medium and I could've used a large for sure.
I bought my SPHINX a year ago with doubts for sure, but I have been looking for alternatives to disposable pads for quite some time. I tried a few other products like cups but nothing was really comfortable or working. So when I came across SPHINX I was of course hesitant and curious. After my first month with them I was so impressed no leaks, no mess, and no worrying! I used them during day and night and equally impressed. They have leaked on me once since buying them but I was having a unusual heavier flow so I don't think it was an issue with SPHINX. Over all very impressed and recommend.
I like to use sphinx to get a break from my menstrual cup and on the last days of my period, when my flow is moderate and light. The underwear is a bit bigger than I imagined, and I get a bit of a sticky feeling after 12h (only when it is very full), but I love sparing the environment from single use product
Sphinx has made my period more tolerable. Make sure you choose the proper sizes to be completely satisfied with your panties.
Surprisingly effective. I use the hiphugger as a back up for tampons that usually leak after an hour.
great fabric, comfy to wear, are great backup for chance leaks from my menstrual cup (2 times of 10 it doesn't unfold completely). Wish a less visible seam.
Just started using sphinx 9 pack hiphugger, i am extremely happy with the result, to get rid of all pads and tampons i will need some more packs and maybe other styles, than the one i have now.
This is the first time I've tried sphinx hiphugger, and I love the concept of reusable period product! I have a medium flow, so these hiphugger are the perfect way for me to avoid the waste that disposables create. I've followed the care instructions exactly, and so far after a number of washes, I feel like these will last a long time as advertised. I Definitely recommend.
I wanted to change my way to use pads & tampons. I have a very heavy flow so I can’t just use sphinxs but I’m happy to use less disposables.
I love my Sphinx. I used to be so uncomfortable with pads. They would always move and I got to the point where I was thinking of duct tape them in place. I feel so comfortable in these and can wear them without worrying . Sometimes, I feel like I should have bought a size bigger.
Comfort and security
My biggest fear is the dreaded bleed thru... i feel so much more confident.. thank you sphinx, the hiphugger and Boyshort are perfect for me
Great!I've been using SPHINX for almost a year now, so I figured I could write a good review. The fabric is great, it is nice sewed and is still in good shape (I really follow the washing instruction) . Only giving 4 stars because I wish they could hold more than 5 Tampons worth.
Wonderfull solution but not for all days...
I would say that is a wonderfull solution for all the days that the flow is medium or low, but not for the heavier flows. I bought 1 set of 3 for heavy and 1 set for medium flow.The undies for heavy flow was told to hold up to 5 regular tampons, but it holds much more if you stand up all day as I do, well I am not sure how it works someone that stay long hours sitting. After 12H aborbing heavy bleeding, the undie weights a bit. The other days of medium flow, is actualy very good it never weights, maybe it dries right away!!! I realy love the design and the fabric
Hiphugger is great for the first heavy night of my cycle. No backup and no leaks! and then classic on the light days. Both work for me
it feels safe on light days, or i use it additionally to the cup. the only thing is the handwash prior to the washer
Really great, but...
I love my Sphinx! I wear the hiphuggers but during the heaviest days of my period, I need to use a tampon or a pad as well. I also need to change my tampon every hour, which explains everything. Within 4-5h, blood will seep through the sides of my Sphinx if I'm not using another layer of protection. That being said, I still love them, and during the lighter days, I love not having to worry about anything
LIke them very much.
These are the best hiphugger in my opinion. No leaks. Comfy and nice.But they don't do for heavy flow days ( holds up to 7-8 Tampons worth), a pity, because an entire period using Sphinx would be great. So, they'll do a great job as far as you use something else for the heavy days, or just use them for a few hours.
Wish they worked for heavy flow
I love this product! I have been wanting to get into using more sustainable hygiene products during my period and I absolutely love these Hiphugger. It feels so freeing to be able to not have to worry about changing a tampon throughout the day. Its great for light days when I would normally use a liner. I wish they held more than 5-6 tampons worth for my heavier days. I have washed it 10 times and it is still in best shape.
I wasn’t sure how I would feel using this, as I’ve solely used tampons for years. But what a pleasant surprise, these are amazing. It’s pretty much like you don’t have your period because you’re so free. Washing by hand is not something I enjoy doing
No bleeding through pants anymore
On my heavy days, my flow is really very heavy, blood just floods. so I did not expect SPHINX to absorb all the fluids alone. I really still need to use the cup on my heavy days together with the hiphugger. The good news is: I don’t bleed through my undies any more, which has unfortunately happened many times before. They also fit very well
SPHINX are great- not only super comfortable and require minimal effort to maintain, they are also a much more environmentally-friendly solution than other feminine hygiene products! They are definitely worth the price and the Hiphugger is especially good for sleeping
Good for medium flow, really easy to handwash
I am able to use these exclusively for my period which is amazing because tampons have always been a problem and disposable pads are so uncomfortable. The only time I have trouble with them leaking is during heavy exercise when I am sweating excessively. I have 9 pairs now so when my flow is the heaviest I may change 3 -4 times a day, but otherwise 2 per day is all I need
The hiphugger fits for me very small (I usually wear small or medium but need a large). It also comes up very low on the stomach. However, the material is nice and the look sexy.
These hiphugger are my absolute favorite of my purchases from sphinx. I love them. They’re so comfy that I honestly even wear them when I don’t have my period. Highly recommend.
On my light or moderate day this is all I need! Because it’s black and absorbs so well, I basically can’t see or tell that I’m bleeding. Just a Game changer! Well done
This was the second set 3pack of Hiphuggers I've bought and I am obsessed! They are super comfy, easy to clean (I rinse them, then throw them in the washer), I've experienced no leaks, bleed-throughs, or even odor with them. Thank you, Sphinx
Good, but not enough for heavy period
I was looking for something to sleep in that would be more comfortable than an overnight pad since tampons just don’t cut it for a whole night for me, but these really don’t absorb enough for that. Maybe on a light day you could use them like at the tail end of your period or the beginning, but it was completely comfortable and I didn’t feel wet at all until they were too full. They hold about 4 regular tampons worth of blood so for me that was only about 3-4 hours of use. You do have to rinse them out in cold water before putting them in the wash and you can’t put them in the dryer so a little more work involves there. I think I would need to buy too many pairs for them to be worth it for me and I would have to get up at 4 am to change them and wash the used ones, but might be enough for someone else.
Love the Hiphugger!!!!
These are fantastic. I was skeptical about the absorbancy and wondered how 'icky' it might be to rise but I LOVE them! They are breathable and comfortable and I have yet to have any issues with leaks on ever heavy days. They are well made and feel like they'll hold up for a while.
I have gotten to where the hiphugger and I really like wearing these. It is a great back up and great on slow flow days. I don’t get the uncomfortableness like I do with other types of sanitary products. I have plenty to rotate and stay fresh, clean and comfortable
I wish I had these years ago!
I bought a 9-pack of these and have stopped using pads and tampons. They are comfortable, discreet and they absolutely work!
This panties are great. I measured my hips with a tape measure and purchased the size based on the sphinx recommended size chart. The fit was perfect for me, because based on the measurements I bought 1 size bigger than usaul. So it is better to measure before placing the order!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because I didn't want to compromise the product i followed the recommended washing instructions. So day two of my period, it is a heavy flow day, I wore the panties with no other hygiene aids, just the panty and went to work. I was able to get my full day in with no discomfort or unplanned bathroom breaks. Best of all, no smell, no leak through!
1 star less because when I ordered the style was out of stock, so I had to wait a bit.
I'm a female athlete; any female athlete can testify that training on your period is the pits. Tampons slip. Pads are wretched.! Thus to continue training through my period I had to find an option that worked. So after shopping around and seeing many unaffordable options I found this product. I read through the reviews and thought hey lets give it a shot.
The quality of the material is great, the style is elegant, the absorbency is high for periods blood and also sweet. It is by far my workouts-WINNER
I am so freaking happy with the sphinx brand. I put them on and instantly fell in love. I was tired of sticking things inside me especially while cramping and I didn’t like pads because they neither feel great nor stayed where they are supposed to. I came across these period panties and holy God it’s my new favorite thing in the world! It truly does fit true to size. Did I mention how freaking comfortable it was? I honestly only have good things to say
Try them! I have now purchased several diff styles . Sphinx is a game changer!
These were a Godsend. I love them. No leaks. No anything! You forget your “suffering” from the aunt flo attack because you’re not bogged down with changing pads every few hours. My flow is moderate so that’s what I got. I was able to wear them for 12 hours without a thought. No heaviness no wetness. I washed them I. The machine two pair at a time to air dry them in time so I had full use of 6 panties my entire cycle. They only take a couple hours to dry. I suggest just rinsing them before if you aren’t going straight to the laundry. Awesome purchase.
I was really unsure what size to order since I’m between a size 6-8. I ordered a size medium and they looked huge when I got them, but fit perfectly. They are a little stretchy, and super comfortable. The mesh on the sides are great quality that appears durable and lasting without ripping. I wore these on a heavy flow night sleeping on my stomach, back and sides with zero issues. My sheets were still very clean in the morning. The underwear absorbed a night of heavy flow and didn’t seem any bigger by the morning or show any visible signs that I had bled in them. They are very slim and extremely movable, great for wearing under clothes. I plan on buying more!
Super comfortable. I wear them to bed, No LEAK!!!!
Fits perfectly (size guide actually worked) and feels very comfy. I was skeptical at first, but these really do absorb your period without detection. I was really surprised. I ordered 3 packs (different varieties) so I would have enough panties for my entire cycle. Really Worth any single penny!!!
Good Backup Underwear
The Hiphugger is good to wear alone for medium flow days; It's a little too heavy for light flow days and is good backup underwear worn with my menstrual cup for heavy flow days. I would say my flow is quite heavy and lasts 5 -6 days. I have been saving my money since I bought them and waste of panty liners
Best of the Best
The Hiphugger did exactly what it said it would do. Sphinx got my heart and is now my new form of period panty!!!!!!!!!
Worth it!!!! Seriously!
awesome at night with super heavy flow. No leakage AT ALL. Comfortable
I rarely write reviews but this product has changed my life. Knowing that I can go out and not have to worry about finding a bathroom is just great. Also when I'm at work I don't have to run to the bathroom all the time. I wish I had these during my teen years.
