Medium absorbency: Perfect for medium flows and when you get over the heavy days.

Hi! I’m The (new and improved) Boyshort Period with an extended gusset, and improved style. I can rival any regular Boyshort - and I have superpowers when it comes to period absorbency. I work best for medium to heavy flow days – but I'm great for light days too! 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 any day. 

When to wear: honestly, the real question is when not to wear. (We can’t think of anything).

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 Star Fish: I wanted to tell you that on this rare instance, I’m not the star. You are. By wearing just one pair of Period, you’ve saved the world from 4 tampons that will take generations to decompose and let’s not get into pads. Thank you from the bottom of the ocean.
