The Junior Period. Boyshort in Organic Cotton For Heavy Flows
Heavy absorbency: designed for heavy days and first periods that are finding their rhythm.
Absorbs up to 9 tampons of flow and 5 pads.
Hi! I’m for the special people who are joining the half of the world that periods (the better half). I know it can be a bit of a wild ride, so I’m here to make it as easy as possible. I’m a stylish boyshort, with a four layer towel absorbency that can take the heaviest of days, and I’m made of super soft organic cotton. When you first start your period journey, it can take a while to regularize, so I’m great for whatever flow you’re going through. One big piece of advice: don’t just put me on and wear me all day without trying me out first. When you first get your period, try me out at home, and work out your flow threshold i.e. how many hours you can flow for in me.
When to wear: any day of a junior period.

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.
