Light to medium absorbency. Built for when your period is over the heavy days.

Hi, I’m a light and breezy bikini style for those light period days, though I have the confidence that comes with great absorbency. I’m made from organic cotton and cozy and comfy, but I feel a little more sassy than a Heavy Period bikini. I’m so light, you might even forget that you’re wearing Period underwear. I won’t hold that against you. And yes, I can be worn under leggings.
When to wear: on light days, during a light period, or if you’re on an IUD.

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.

Message from an Oak Tree: Hellooo. I’m a 100 year old oak tree. I live near a landfill and 80 years ago, I saw a tampon get thrown away. Guess what? It’s still there! Still decomposing! I can’t believe it. All the pads and tampons that people have thrown away are all there. And it’s so gross! I used to look out at fields and meadows and woodland. And now I just see decomposing bad products that will taken another hundred years to degrade. I have to confess, I started to lose a little faith in humans. Then you came along. Just by wearing one pair of Period just once, you’ve stopped 2 pads or 4 tampons from being in my eye line. Thank you!
