Rock the Tampon Holder: 5 Cute Ways to Accessorize Your TOTM
Posted byBethany Johnson
Don’t let your monthly cycle stop you from looking fabulous. Your period is the perfect time to gear up on cute accessories that boost your fashion mojo and function as concealment for your feminine supplies.
Here are five smart ways to secretly stow your pads and tampons.
1. Pencil Pouch
The old-fashioned pencil pouch is a classic tampon holder for school. It’s how your mom stashed her girl goods in class, and the approach still works today. Although, these days you’ll want to take this as a unique opportunity to express your personality. Make your own or grab a homemade zipper pouch in your favorite fabric and pattern.
2. Hollowed out Book
You can safely hide your feminine necessities in your work space each month without announcing your condition. How? By hollowing out a book using a simple tutorial like the one from the expert crafters at Indiana University, of course! With a secret compartment in your office like this one, you’ll be covered, and your coworkers will be none the wiser.
3. Spy Shoes
“Get smart” by taking a page out of Agent 99’s book and invest in a pair of secret-compartment spy shoes. DoubleAgentShoes.com can hook you up, with tons of styles and sizes — one for every personality and — ahem — occasion. To ensure your secret stays safe, conceal your items further by referring to them by code names with fellow females at work. Just avoid the obvious “amponTay,” and “adPay.”
4. Secret Message Locket
If you’re a champion of the no-applicator style tampons, then a decorative tube pendant necklace from Etsy could be the perfect tampon holder for you. At a half-inch in diameter, this solution is perfect for your regular and light-day absorption needs. Fool the world into thinking you keep something much more whimsical — say pixie dust or magic plant oils — around your neck instead of the utilitarian tampon (sans applicator, no less).
5. Makeup Bag
Makeup bags are often the perfect accessory to store pads and tampons, and some makeup bags are cuter than others. Get a solid color pouch to go with each outfit, or one with tons of texture (sequins, anyone?). Another way to express yourself with a makeup-bag-turned tampon holder is to choose an inspiring story from current events, and show your solidarity with the real-life characters involved. For example, check out how this dude changed India’s society forever by inventing a gizmo that lets women take charge of their cycle each month. Then, grab a sari makeup bag from Uncommon Goods, one that reminds you of the heroic women (and in this case, man) who are walking the line elsewhere.
The term “period panties” emerged from the common knowledge that your #TOTM requires sub par fashion. Turn the trend around by resolving to wear and use the very best of your clothes and accessories during your monthly flow. Start by snagging one of these super stylish, secretive solutions for tampon storage at work or school.
