Period pants are a sustainable and fuss-free alternative to sanitary towels and tampons when your time of the month hits.

But period pants are not solely for your period as they can also be worn by those postpartum, or those suffering with incontinence.

Period pants can be worn like normal underwear, without the need of extra sanitary products, which makes our time of the month just that little bit easier, stress-free and comfortable. 

Period pants come in different styles, such as brazilian, high waisted, and thongs, so you can wear discreetly under any outfit.  Some have lace designs, while others are more simplistic and classic. 

Period pants not only come in different sizes, and we don't just mean dress sizes, but also with different absorbances for light to heavy flows.

After wearing the period underwear, all you have to do is hand wash like your other delicates, before including in your usual wash. 

From Bodyform to Chantelle lingerie, we have curated the best places to shop period pants online now.
