Medium absorbency: Perfect for medium flows and when you get over the heavy days.
Hi! I was created by popular demand. My name is The Boyshort. I do exactly what my name suggests - and to be honest, I can rival any regular Boyshort - but I have superpowers when it comes to period absorbency. I work best for medium flow days and am great for period exit days or never-ending periods. I’m super soft, super cozy, and have a comfy slim waistband, like on your favorite pair of yoga leggings. I’ll admit I’m a little bit cheeky - just a little - but I still have enough coverage to make you feel secure and confident on your period. Or on any day, because I’m so awesome that pretty soon you’ll be wanting to wear me every day. I’m also great for absorbing light pee leaks.
When to wear: honestly, the real question is when not to wear.

How long will one pair of Light Absorbency Period. last?
Everybody periods differently so it’s tough to be exact. Our light absorbency collection is for those lighter days - so after the big flow. Sometimes that easing off can start around day 3, or not even until 4 or 5. Or maybe, it starts for you on day 2. These are the days the lighter absorbency models are made for. Again, everybody Periods differently, so you need to take one cycle to figure out exactly when to pop on the lighter absorbency model and if you need to change twice a day, or not at all. Spend a day finding that limit. And if you leak, please forgive us! Just this once. (Remember how many tampons you have forgiven). Treat the ‘leak’ as a gift and note the hour of your leakage. That is the best indicator of your ‘flow threshold’ how long the light absorbency underwear will last for you.
