The Takeaway: Don’t let critics destroy a great idea.

The three women behind the THINX, a fashionable underwear line designed for a person’s menstrual cycle, wanted to launch an untested idea in a field dominated by corporate giants like Hanes, Fruit of the Loom, and Victoria’s Secret.

After a few years of perseverance and research, THINX products are beginning to hit store shelves, and early sales have already eclipsed this year’s projections.

Here’s the scoop.

Aw man, I wish I’d heard of this while the kickstarter was running, I would’ve signed up in a heartbeat.

    I want to like them/this, but I was really turned off by how they twice-ignored a question (in the kickstarter comments)...
