Medium to light absorbency. Also great for everyday leaks. Or just everyday. 

Absorbs up to 4 regular tampons worth of flow. 

Hi. I’m a new version of Period’s best-selling High Waisted in Cotton for Heavy Flows. But I can totally stand on my two feet or my amazingly absorbent gusset. I’m the softest cotton with a super soft safe organic cotton gusset. I’m great for pretty much everything - medium and light flow days, birth control periods, never-ending periods, and for pee leaks. You might say I’m perfect - ok, as long as you’re saying it. 

When to wear: anywhere you want, the world is your oyster (or sub your favorite food for oysters).

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.

    Don’t work well for my tween

    These are well made like other Period products, but since I bought them for my slight 11-year old, they are WAY too high in the waist. Like they ride well above her pants. Otherwise no complaints.

    Game Changer

    I’ve been wearing these for a couple of years now and I wish I would have bought them earlier. It’s amazing to know that you can sleep and move with no leaks. So simple to use too. I ordered my normal underwear size but the next ones I order I will size up. When they are freshly washed they are too tight on the waist. But that seems a little crazy to get XL when I’m only 148 pounds and 5’7” tall. I wish there were light flow in bikini or high waist. I even wear these period underwear when I am ovulating.
