What Are Period Underwear?
Menstrual undies, knickers, pants, underwear are just like your normal underwear but with absorbent and leak proof fabric sewn into the crotch to provide protection against leaks. They enable you to free bleed without using any other products.
The layers of absorbency draw away moisture, reduce smells and bacteria. You put them on as normal, and then change the whole underwear instead of changing your pad/cup/tampon.
They come in a huge range sizes and absorbency from light to heavy and overnight flows. They can also be used as a back up to other menstrual products like cups or tampons.
Once used, they get washed and dried like your normal knickers.
