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 turtle: Oh hello. When you're my age (110 years old), you've seen a lot of stuff. I hope I live to see a world where there's no more non-disposable garbage in the ocean like tampons and pads. Sometimes I feel pretty down about the whole situation. Then, I hear about people like you who are shifting behaviors and making a difference and I get that warm feeling (unusual for turtles) where I just know everything is going to be ok.

    No leak protection

    I wore these at home to test them out, and thank goodness I was at home. The first “gush” I felt I went to the bathroom to check. I bled through the crotch. I was just sitting and not moving around when I got up to check. The leak was right through the crotch all the way to the fabric on the other side. So if you get these test them out at home. They are not for me but if you have super light flow with no gushes they might work?

    High waisted period panties

    I wish I could have a better outcome but unfortunately these specific high waited panties didn’t work. Any leaks up the buttocks will not be absorbed. It took a public moment of embarrassment for me to realize that. I had such a great expert with the overnight boxer briefs that I felt confident with these high waisted panties for the day. Unfortunately I was wrong. I can’t recommend these specific panties for use.

    Love it so much- wish it lasted longer

    I love these!! I have 3 pairs in this style and they are so comfy and can hold a lot of blood. Maybe because I have a heavy flow and have to rewash them they have started to fall apart. The seams are completely unraveling. Such a shame cause I do really love to wear these on my period and I even wore them postpartum. I wash them in gentle cycle and air dry, so I’m not sure that it was my care of them than contributed to their falling part. Makes me think they just aren’t as high quality as other brands. I have some Aerie brand period underwear that aren’t as comfortable but have held up way better and aren’t falling apart at all.

    Comfortable, but…

    I wore these for the first time today. They fit well and are comfortable. However, the threading is unraveling. My hands get caught in the threads every time I pull the panties up after going to the bathroom. The attached picture is only a portion of the thread that is coming undone.

    The best. Ever.

    Not only are the products good for our bodies and actually absorbent, but they're a fair price! So cheap it makes you wonder what the catch is. The catch is- you get addicted to them!! I literally only use these and the sleepers when I'm in my period (7 days long, 3-4 heavy and a few moderate or light). As someone that hated the chemicals of tampons and pads, but never found a pair of period underwear that actually held and didn't leak after an hour (that also didn't cost $60-80) these are a prayer answered! Customer service is unmatched, and they're so comfortable!
