    I’m assuming this is some kind of mini Tampax thing although it would be nice for the box lid to say so. It’s always an excellent sign of Kitsch that the packaging doesn’t contain enough information about what exactly the product is. Though it’s helpful that the side of the box says “The Modess Insorber perfected by a woman.” Modess is the only hint as to what the product might be. Is one supposed to make sense of the word ‘insorber’? Shouldn’t that be ‘ABsorber’? And what exactly does ‘perfected by’ mean? If it were a man who got this product together it would have said ‘invented by’. Does ‘perfected by’ mean that the woman suffered through 20 years of horrendous periods and bitched enough so a man finally did something about it?

    I just have to say, when I was a kid, I never imagined I would someday marry a woman who collected vintage feminine hygiene products.

    Having said that, truly, I don’t care how clinical the name “Meds” is, if it was me, I wouldn’t be shoving a product into my personal areas if they couldn’t even manage to avoid spelling errors on the packaging.
