About this deal

They were just shy of scoring full marks for liquid absorption too, and they kept things comfy and dry at night. Crafted from soft, breathable cotton, the pants are suitable for those with a heavy flow, offering long-lasting protection and comfort. Try to avoid using fabric softener and tumble drying as, over time, this can impact the product’s absorbency. Pantys, a Brazilian brand recently launched in the UK, has a range of period pants in different styles and absorbencies, and a dedicated range for teens. Putting them in a delicate garment bag is also a good idea, but don't include any fabric softener, as this can affect the absorbency levels of the pants.

Ohne prides itself on not only being plastic-free, but also shame-free in its direct approach to talking about periods. They're not just for periods either, these pants can also double up as bladder-leakage protection for post-birth. Five years later – in the mid 2010s – things got a little more high-tech, and a small number of menstrual-care brands began to add absorbent period pants to their product offerings. If you have the odd blood clot during your heavier days (if this is often please see a doctor 👩‍⚕️) these cannot be wicked up by the top layer of the period pants.It's also worth noting that they're crafted from sustainably sourced and manufactured Lenzing™ Modal fabric which is three and a half times softer than cotton (I can confirm this to be true). I have a medium flow, and manage around eight hours in one pair of period pants before I start feeling uncomfortable. You can also wear them to give you extra protection alongside a pad or menstrual cup on heavy flow days, or to protect against incontinence or for peace-of-mind postpartum. Can't wear for long periods of time (13%) 'I just find I can't wear them for long periods of time which is quite a faff.

The gusset is made of three protecting layers: a wicking layer, an absorbent layer and a bottom BCI cotton layer. Modibodi was one of the first companies to sell period-proof underwear, and has one of the largest ranges. The Saalt period pants were described as “supportive and secure”, while providing a close fit that was barely noticeable under tight leggings, making them a great workout buddy.They may look like a regular pair of pants but they contain a blend of absorbent layers, to soak up fluid, and moisture-wicking material to help keep you feeling dry.

First, rinse them in cold water, then “pop in the washing machine at 30 degrees with your usual laundry detergent and air dry. I no longer wake up in a panic that I've leaked at 2am, I don't need to set an alarm to change my tampon through the night and I can even wear white jeans in the day, stress free.

We’ve extended our sizing: our Period Pants now come in size S (Size 8) through to XXXL (Size 26-28) for more shapes and sizes of booty. Always check the manufacturer instructions on how to wash your period pants, as it might differ slightly between brands. Use fit guides in conjunction with the finished measurement chart to better understand the ease and intended fit of each pattern.

They dry really quickly, have UV50+ protection, are anti-chlorine treated and live up to all promises. Though they did cause a few VPLs, they did tick all our boxes when it came to comfort, security and support.Bear in mind, the style may affect the absorbency level – a skimpier pant is likely to have a lighter absorbency.
