We recently caught up with BP3 Underwear, one of the exhibiting brands at the National Running Show South 2021, who will be bringing their leakproof underwear as a solution for women who suffer from incontinence whilst running.
BP3 Underwear has been specifically designed for women who love to exercise but who suffer with bladder leaks. Built with four layers of absorbent gusset, they offer ample protection from leaks and odours common with incontinence. They are so discreet with no VPL so can be worn under leggings with no lines or bulkiness. They are washable so you can reduce the amount of waste you produce.
BP3 Underwear was founded by Kelly after her own experiences of bladder leakage whilst running and playing sports. Unhappy with what was already on the market she set about designing and manufacturing her own design.
Traditional sanitary products cause over 200,000 tonnes of waste every year and take over 500 years to decompose so it was very important to produce something sustainable.
We asked the team 5 quick-fire questions:
- What can visitors expect to find at your stand at the show?
Protecting & Discreet knickers for periods & little leaks!
- Will you have any product launches or exclusive products available at the show?
We currently have 6 different styles available in sizes Small up to a 26. We launched our Sporty Hip Hugger in December 2020.
- Where is your favourite place to run?
On a hockey pitch! I love running in the woods nearby where I live as well, I have to keep my wits about me which comes in handy on the pitch!
- What is your one piece of advice for newcomers to the sport?
Don’t worry if you have to run and walk. As long as you are out and about and enjoying your exercise, stamina will come.
