Claspies: calling all women, you can finally ditch the towel
Let me start by apologizing in advance for the men reading my blog. This post is definitely geared toward my female followers, so feel free to ignore unless you are looking for gift ideas for the woman in your life.
If you are an active female, I can pretty much guarantee you have been faced with the obstacle of changing in a very public setting at least once in your life. For runner and cyclists especially, you are challenged with competing many times without underwear, yet you want to put some on after you are finished. You find yourself in a parking lot, field or some area in which there are 100s of people around, equipped with the infamous “towel.”
Men are able to change relatively easy with their towel, however, for us women it becomes much more trickier. You are trying to hold the towel with one hand, pull up your underwear with the other, at the risk of dropping either one! If you can relate, then this blog post is a must read for you.
About a month ago, I first heard of claspies, and I was instantly intrigued. Here is a description straight from their site:
By design, Ai Change™ Claspies™ allow you to stand on two feet while putting on your panties. Styled to feel and look just like normal bikini underwear; Ai Change™ Claspies™ enable you to put on fresh clean panties whenever and wherever you desire. Just roll down your pants (no need to take them off) … unclasp the Claspies™ you are wearing, and clasp on a new pair of Claspies™.
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a pair to test, and I can honestly say they are a game changer. I for one am all about comfort, so the first test with the claspies was to make sure they fit and were comfortable to wear. Right away when I took them out of the package, I noticed the material. It was soft and stretchy, which I was happy about. Trying them on for the first time, I found they fit great and provided good coverage. My only recommendation is to go up a size if you are between sizes, otherwise I don’t think you will have as good of coverage. Wearing them throughout the day, I had no issues of the claspies ridding up or causing wedgies, extra plus in my book!
Now that I was happy with the way they fit and felt for wearing throughout the day, I decided to give them a try for the main feature, changing in a public area. Much to my surprise, I found that I could put them on sitting down OR without even removing my pants! If you are planning to change out of one pair of underwear into another, then I highly suggest making sure you have at least 2 pairs of claspies. This way you can literally put one pair on (over the original pair) and then take off the original pair, without having anything uncovered at all.
How exactly do claspies work, simple. There is a hook on each side. You simply place one end into the other and twist to hook that side, then repeat on the other side. To remove, you simple rotate the hook and separate on each side to remove. Here are some pictures to display the process, but honestly I don’t think it could get any easier.
So my final verdict for this product review is that every women needs to own a pair, especially if they lead an active lifestyle. It is so freeing knowing you can ditch the towel/blanket and be able to change wherever necessary, without the fear of flashing the world. And the best news of all…I will be giving away a pair to one lucky reader. If you are interested in winning, please make sure to follow my blog, so you won’t miss the giveaway when it goes live!
