My name is Kelly and I am 48 years old. I am a foster carer with 6 teenage children, I work in a gym and I am the founder of BP3 Underwear. BP3 Underwear is Sustainable, Absorbent and Discreet knickers for bladder leaks.
I have always been active and I love working out, running and playing hockey. Unfortunately going through the menopause came with all kinds of obstacles for me, mainly how weak my bladder was! Oestrogen levels start to drop during the menopause which causes your pelvic floor muscles to weaken. I was really finding it difficult to get through a game of hockey without some bladder leakage so I had a look to see what was on the market. I didn't like the idea of traditional sanitary products. They cause over 200,000 tonnes of landfill every year and take over 500 years to decompose. All the other knickers looked like nappies, big and bulky and not at all feminine.
I wanted knickers that were:
- No VPL
After a year of designing, speaking to manufacturers, finding fabrics, I launched BP3 Underwear. Made with 4 layers of absorbent gusset, moisture wicking and antibacterial fabric. The top layer is moisture wicking so pulls the moisture away from the skin, the second layer absorbs the moisture. The third layer is waterproof so stops any leakage.
I have had such a great response from my customers, they use them for periods as well as bladder leaks. They wear them to the gym, on the beach, when they hit the town and just for everyday comfort and security.
- New High Waisted Knickers
We know how important it is for women to strengthen their pelvic floor and we know that these knickers are not the longterm answer. So many women are too embarrassed to even go to the gym or to try new sports because of bladder leaks. We want to give women the confidence to take the first step of exercising, to empower them to feel good about themselves.
