The latest fashion trend involves transforming your wardrobe so that it is more eco-friendly and reusable period undies can help you accomplish this in a big way. That’s part of the reason period underwear has taken over the undergarment scene in recent years. Not only are they comfortable, practical, and as cute as your other panties, but they can also be worn & washed, not tossed.
Reusable period undies are also better for your health thanks to their ability to help protect you from leaks. They are easy to wash and care for, and come in a variety of cute and comfortable styles. The benefits are truly unlimited.
What is Period Underwear?
Moisture wicking underwear, also known as period underwear, are panties you can wear on your period. They are designed to absorb period blood and come in a variety of thickness for different flows - light to heavy. The best part of all is that they are reusable and can last for years, protecting you through countless menstrual cycles. Did we mention you can wear them for more than just periods? They are also made to absorb sweat, discharge, and urine leaks as well.
Can You Wear Period Underwear All Day?
The answer to this question depends on how heavy your flow is. Our most absorbent pair can handle up to 5 tampons, so you could potentially wear a single pair for all day protection. You can buy period undies that offer light, medium, and heavy protection.
