Have you ever wanted to store personal belongings in your purse, such as tampons, and instead ended up with an embarrassing moment on your hands? Us too. In fact, nothing can be more horrifying than spilling tampons out everywhere in public or in front of someone significant. Tampurse owners and creators Anna Paterakis and Rebekah Zougoulos have us ladies covered finally. Started in 2009, Tampurse allows us to discreetly and fashionably bring along our personal items without shouting to the world that it is “that time of the month.” So how did Tampurse hold up in our eyes?
Vintage Glamour Tampurse in “Vintage Glamour Pink”
Tampurse provides a discreet, stylish way to protect and tote around your tampons. When you are not using it for tampons, it can be used to keep other small items safe and tucked away in your purse, as well.
Before I say anything else about this product, let me just tell you how beautifully constructed this Tampurse is. With it’s bright pink crocodile print, and it’s gold frame, it exudes luxury and richness. The outside and inside of the Tampurse is sturdily constructed, lined with black velvet inside. This Tampurse looks more like a high-end designer accessory than a tampon holder, and for that, the Tampurse owner’s should be truly proud.
As soon as I heard about this product from Anna, one of the owner’s, my interest was piqued. How many times have I had tampons spill out of my purse? Too many to count! They have spilled out in public, inside of a store while digging for my wallet, even when bringing guests home and finding my dog went through my purse. Our personal items should be just that – personal and discreet. To finally have come up with a fun and fashionable idea to store these items is a fantastic concept. Why should we have to zipper extra compartments in our handbags and consistently check that they are closed every single month? Well, look no further than this product.
I got to use my Tampurse all last month, while I was traveling, and it was the perfect partner for my handbag. Since I was traveling on vacation, I was extremely busy, and the last thing I wanted to think about was toting around tampons. I simply dropped a few tampons discreetly into my Tampurse, and put it inside my handbag. I was able to take my Tampurse out of my handbag, and bring it to the bathroom with me without getting weird looks. In fact, I had several ladies tell me my “makeup bag” was gorgeous, with it’s bright pink crocodile print, and vintage glamour appeal. Little did they know, it wasn’t a makeup bag!
One thing about the Tampurse, especially for our American ladies, is that only certain types and brands of tampons fit inside of the Tampurse. Full size tampons that are sold in America will be too long, and therefore you will need to use travel or compact tampons. Since I was traveling, I simply used compact ones anyway, and they fit perfectly into my Tampurse. It also helped me from having to throw a bunch of tampons into my purse, and hoping I did not run out. It helped me stay organized, and keep track of how many I had on me.
Now, only one month after I got back from traveling, I found out that I am expecting a bundle of joy, therefore I will not need the Tampurse anymore, at least not for its original purpose. I, however, have been using it for plenty of other purposes, because it is so sturdy and stylish. I have been placing my prenatal vitamins inside the Tampurse, knowing that they will be safe and protected inside, and will not fall out. It also serves as a reminder to take my vitamins every day, especially when I am out and about. This Tampurse will also be a great storage option for many other items, such as tissues, small eyeshadows, medications, and other small items that you’d like to keep separate and protected in your purse. And, why not do it in style?
Bottom line: The Tampurse is a fantastically stylish and modern way to keep your personal belongings personal. If you live in the United States, be sure to purchase travel or compact tampons, so that they fit properly.
