#confidence is quiet
What are your mishaps?
Our underwear has an ultra-soft, washable, built in pantyliner which provides security and protects against the following mishaps:
Whether waiting for your first or 100th period to come, avoid leaks with an untimely period or catch sporadic flows as you enter peri-menopause, our panties are perfect for first and last days of your cycle, as well as, spotting.
The two most common types of urinary incontinence that affect women are stress incontinence and urge incontinence, also called overactive bladder. Incontinence affects twice as many women as men. This is because pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause may cause urinary incontinence. Our everyday panties can catch slight urine, wicking away moisture and keeping you dry.
Vaginal discharge is not a weird, gross thing. This thick fluid you’re seeing is the natural way your body keeps your vagina healthy as it helps to clean and flush out any possible bacteria. The average amount of discharge is roughly a teaspoon per day but it can differ if you’re sick, stressed or if you’re at a certain stage of your menstrual cycle. Our everyday panties help absorb this natural occurrence, keeping you confident and clean.
Fecal incontinence isn't limited to any particular age group or gender. Although it more commonly strikes older people and women. In addition to maturing women, we have found that many experienced athletes and long-distance runners also manage their “runner’s trots” and similar occurrences with our Apele performance panties.
Prenatal and Post-Partum
When you’re pregnant, it is common to have pressure on your bladder causing occasional incontinence when sneezing or even performing routine activities. Also, the amount of blood in your body will increase by up to 50 percent. After birth, the extra blood vessels and tissue that supported your baby need to come away and be shed from your uterus. Some bleeding is normal as you shrink back down again, and of course some is from injury or tearing from birth itself. Our panties have been touted by pregnant and postpartum women everywhere as a non-slip, absorbent undie they can trust to their transitioning body.
Our company tagline is #confidence is quiet, Insecurities are loud...a mindset where our following are girls and women who are able to perform their best daily because they are prepared for the unforeseen and unpredictable. Our bodies are constantly changing so our goal is to help you understand the workings of what makes us unique and how to protect against potential embarrassing situations. Confidence comes from knowing oneself, how to self protect and to be prepared. Our undies will help you to feel more secure and carefree in your daily life. We believe the built in pantyliner is an easy, simple solution that is sustainable, affordable and can make your life easier. It will leave you feeling in control, focused and empowered everyday.
Trial our undies up to 25 days and change the way you live, feel and compete. We coined our undie, Anytime Now 365 to represent daily versatility for unpredictable mishaps.
Giving back is why we started our business. We have been fortunate to be able to spend a lot of time, focusing on ourselves and our families. Now it is time to give back as we have found a way to empower girls and women, in a graceful, honorable and intelligent manner.
Our goal is to make your life easier, and for the next generation of girls and women. It is about integrating an East meets West approach. We have a lot of great tribal knowledge and wisdom that have been passed down to us from our ancestors. We also understand and see what young girls and women face today in society. With this combination, we created a comfortable and high functioning, performance underwear that has the capabilities of a pantyliner and humbly and hopefully, beyond. Our intention is to bring you the best quality product at an affordable price point. We believe in good value, transparency and education.
Our pelvic region is the essence of our being so it is important to protect, honor and consistently maintain a healthy status. In order to do this, we must understand our own bodies so all of our blogs are directed to help you better understand your body as a whole. We aspire to support you as you go through the 7 phases of womanhood, spiritually, mentally, physically and socially. We know our underwear line has an answer for all of the phases.
We also understand that not everyone can afford to buy functionality underwear so we have been giving them out to those who we feel need it most: girls and women in transition from puberty into womanhood and women who do not have solutions for everyday living. We feel so honored that these parties graciously opened their hearts to our innovation.

Ariana, Marathon runner
I just wanted to write in to let you ladies know that I wore your undies for the Boston Marathon in the rain for 4 hours and they kept me dry. Unbelievable. I will be back for more once I get settled in back home. Thank you again and for your enthusiasm and desire to help women.
Melissa, Iron Woman
I bought these undies at the Boston Marathon Expo and used them in that rainy race, which was happening at the time of the month where I would be wearing a pantyliner if not running a marathon. These undies were perfect!!!
I wear your undies on the first and last day of my period. Apele panties feel great as my skin feels air and there is no chafing, which gives me relief sooner as I would have had a pantyliner or a light day pad. Thank you for also helping me some money too!
We were all surprised about the durability of your undies and the fact that there were NO panty lines when wearing running gear. Many of the moms of teenage girls were most pleased because there is a huge need for your product. Thank you so much!
Period panties are normally thick but your are so light. It is hard to believe they hold so much too! I wear them anytime I have to do a lot of errands or am out for long periods of time: truly comfortable and they do not ride up.
Lee Ann, Marathon runner
Apele’s active underwear is a game changer for me. As a marathoner, you never know what can happen when you go out for a 4 hour run. I also love wearing the undies on normal days that I commute into Boston for work. If you sneeze or cough or holding it in while riding the commuter rail, you are protected from the little mishaps.
My daughter lives in your undies as she is a sports fanatic. She said typically you will need to change out of the workout gear but she stays in your undies as they wick sweat really quickly and so versatile that she can wear leggings on top of them too with no panty lines. WOW. Did not expect such a high quality product. I will come back for a pair for myself.
My 14 year old Daughter loves your undies so I need to order 6 more of them.They are colorful, light and look like everyday undies. It keeps her prepared. Thank you Apele!
I wear your undies on the first and last day of my period. Apele panties feel great as my skin feels air and there is no chaffing, which gives me relief sooner than if I used a pantyliner or light day pad. Thank you for also helping me save money.
