I discovered Dear Kate underwear at BlogHer and immediately thought how useful they would be for a mother runner. Chances are, if you have been pregnant, you have experienced stress incontinence/discharge/period overflow. If this is TMI, feel free not to read on!
When I was pregnant with my second son, I remember kneeling over the toilet simultaneously vomiting and peeing my pants—not a pretty sight! That was my first introduction to stress urinary incontinence or SUI. I could have used some Dear Kate underwear back then. Although the incontinence went away after my son’s birth, it never hurts to have all of your bases covered!
Fast forward several years, and a local women’s start-up called Dear Kate has created a line of super comfy, stylish, AND leak-proof underwear! I tried out a pair of the Leading Lady bikini mini, and they were so comfy! They were very breathable and flattering– a winning combination.
Thankfully I no longer suffer from SUI, but I have all confidence they would be my best friend if I did! The underwear line sports three different layers: a leak resistant outer layer and two wicking inner layers. The Dear Kate underwear come in five different styles: bikini, hipster, cheeky,thong, and high-rise. You no longer have to sacrifice the comfort and utility of underwear for great style– these babies are cute!
All styles are currently available for pre-order (shipping December 5 shipping). The sizing runs a little small. I usually wear a size 5 in underwear, but they recommended I try a medium—which was perfect. They would make a great stocking stuffer! Visit their website HERE and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter. You can use the code “motherrunner” at checkout for $10 off through December 31!
I received a pair of underwear from Dear Kate for the purpose of this review. All opinions and writing are 100% my own.
