Mynickerbot was born from two Aussie mothers with a desire to make life easier as a tween for their daughters. We knew our girls were about to start their periods within a matter of time and we wanted to prevent that first embarrassing moment when Aunt Flow or shark week arrives unexpectedly. We never had anything like this as teens and endured school camps, sleep overs and sporting events worried sick and freaking out. Hence our trademark "No Freak TechnologyTM was born from this constant " freak out!"
Mynickerbot was born out of our passion to make eco conscious underwear with a specialised technology. Mynickerbot's are your go to underwear that have a unique layered system that will keep you fresh and leak free. They come with anti odour technology built into every pair. They absorb up to 2 tampons worth of fluid so a pair should keep you fresh all day at school.
We believe that having a monthly period should not harm the environment. Our underwear are made with a focus on environmental sustainability. Disposable sanitary products can block drains, end up in landfill and spoil our oceans. During an average period, most people use between 11 and 30 pads per month. In a lifetime, that’s between 5,000-14,000 sanitary products! And that’s not even considering the disposable packaging too!
We also believe that having your period should not affect your self esteem and you should be able to feel cute, confident, comfortable, secure and free to do what you want during this time of the month. Hence our different, functional yet fun styles and the use of organic cotton certified by GOTS. Having organic dyes and fabrics so close to your skin was important to us especially dealing with teens and tweens.
Mynickerbot is committed at empowering women all over the world especially teens to break the taboo around period shame. We have partnered with the Homeless Youth project to make sure that those teenage girls in need are looked after with our specialised re-usable underwear. We are very proud to give back to the community wherever we can.
Mynickerbot is your little secret friend!
