1 pair absorbs 9 tampons of flow

Super absorbent. Built for heavy days. 

Absorbs 9 tampons worth of flow or five pads. 

Hi! I’m super-super-super absorbent and designed to handle the heaviest days of a period. I’m made of soft, comfy organic cotton and have a four-layer padded towel absorbency that holds your flow. I have a wicking layer on top, so I can absorb the blood super fast with no wetness. You will feel padding, but frankly, on those heavy days, feeling secure, safe, and leak proof is a pretty great feeling, alongside being so comfy and cozy. Warning: after you use me once, you will look at tampons and disposable pads and pretend you don’t know them. Be cold. They deserve it. 

When to wear: on your heaviest days. Also great for postpartum and perimenopause.

How to take care of your Period.

Rinse for a few seconds.

Either hand wash and hang dry, or add to the laundry pile.

Regular wash, no bleach.

Tumble dry low or hang dry.

Do not dry clean.

None, zero, nada, zilch. We are proud to be one of the few period underwear brands that do not use any toxins in our products because who wants chemicals near the most sensitive part of their body? Not us. Or you.

Each pair of Period. underwear can hold up to 10 tablespoons, or 8-10 tampons, worth of blood.

How long will one pair of Period. last?

Everybody periods differently so it’s tough to be exact. Our average time is about 8 hours on a heavier flow day. Though some customers need to change after 3 to 4 hours, and others can go up to 14 hours (lucky them!). As your period gets lighter, one pair can take you through the day and night (just like regular underwear). But again, everybody Periods differently, so you need to take one cycle to figure out exactly how often you need to change. Start with a conservative estimate on your heavy days, and check in on your Period underwear after 4 hours. If you still feel good, give it another hour. Keep going until you figure out your limit. Here at Period, we find we need between 3 to 4 pairs on the first two heavy days, including evenings. 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 underwear will last for you.

Message from a Coral Reef: Hi! Thank you for using non disposable products. It may feel like a small gesture - but it’s not. I’m sick of getting tampons and pads getting caught up in my beautiful branches and you’re helping to keep that trash out of my home. Just one pair of Period means that 5 pads/9 tampons are never used or thrown away. Thank you! Next time you swim by me, stop and say hi.

    Awesome product!

    I use these panties in combination with a menstrual disc. Works out perfectly so in case I do leak from the disc then these panties have me covered from period leaks and stains. The fit is good overall (I am 5'3 and 215 lbs). I like that they are high waisted. My only minor criticism are that I wished they covered my cheeks a little more than they do. My cheeks are probably about 70% covered so it isn't a deal breaker. The thick padding does feel a little weird but it does not feel like wearing a diaper or a super thick pad. But, more importantly, the panties prevent leaks and I don't have to look at period stains on my panties anymore! Genius product. Wish I had these 20 years ago.

    Awesome Company and Awesome Panties

    I wrote a previous mixed review because a pair I bought were not very absorbent and I had a leakage issue. I figured I bought the wrong absorbency but wanted peeps to be sure to purchase a higher absorbency if you experience “gushes” in your flow. Period quickly sent me two pair to try out to be sure I got the ones for me. The medium flow worked perfectly for my early days and at the end and the heavy flow handled my heavy middle days like a champ, even the gushes. So if you have varied flow like me be sure to get medium and heavy flow panties. The price point is excellent and if you have any issues or questions this company is super kind and helpful! We all deserve affordable reusable options and I am so happy these are out there for us. I am a customer for sure, and I will get them for my child also.

    I like the product, but if you rely on stretch to fit into a certain size definitely size up, I'm usually and xl but they are way small and the have no stretch so I had to size up to a 2xl

    I absolutely love these. I accidentally ordered the wrong type of panties and the customer service was excellent. The correct order is on its way. I highly recommend this product. These are so comfortable. I now have a pair for everyday of the week and a couple extra just in case.

    2+ year update

    I don’t remember if I’ve already written a review but I first purchased a couple of these & some pads about 2+yrs ago, & it’s been life changing. I wanted to stop using chemically treated products & save money, with Period I’ve done both. My flow has changed for the better! Lighter flow, less pms, & shorter cycle. Cleaning is easy, prewash in the shower & straight into the washer after, some times may require a soak. I am back to buy a few more in a different style. If you’re considering this for the first time, it’s worth trying.
