Fantastic special offer during February, save £5 on all three packs of our waterproof, leak free period pants - brilliant for cycling and sports
Have you seen our new 'Bikini' style cotton and lycra period pants? Lots of you already love our slightly higher waisted, lace topped period pants, but some of you asked for a lower waisted style, something a bit more sporty and maybe more appealing to teens and tweens.
I've been wearing the bikini style ones this week and I have to say that they're great. I wear them by themselves to gym classes (they withstood both Body Pump and Circuit training with no leaks) and whilst cycling and they're great for both. No moving around, no getting a tampon string caught in your undies, no rubbing or chafing or even 'nappy rash' from disposable pads.
How absorbent are period pants?
Our pants have 4 layer protection built in, with a breathable layer against your skin, an absorbent layer which soaks up wetness and wicks it away from skin. Plus of course the waterproof layer so you're leak free and comfortable.
To give you some idea of absorbency, I would say that my periods are normal in that on my two heaviest days, I would normally change my protection 3 times...first thing in the morning, lunchtime / mid afternoon and then again at bed time. Wearing the pants, I made the same changes, but on my lighter days, I only changed once at bedtime, as I like to go to bed with clean knickers.
If you have very heavy periods, and you usually have to change your protection every hour and / or wear two forms of sanitary protection, then these pants are fantastic to wear with cloth sanitary pads.
What do you do wearing period pants at school / work?
Simple, just use one of our mini wetbags to carry a clean pair and maybe some intimate wipes with you. Then simply change your pants in the loo, give yourself a quick freshen up with the intimate wipes and pop the soiled ones into your wetbag to bring home. Don't worry, they there's no smell!
How do you wash period pants?
Again, that's easy, just follow the same process as you would do if you came on unexpectedly and had to wash your knickers. In all honesty, because they are black, I simply give them a squirt of stain remover and then wash in a normal wash, max 30c as anything higher than this will 'set' bloodstains. If you prefer them to be sparking clean, you can of course soak them in cold water and maybe some Oxi or Vanish type stain remover. The pants shouldn't be tumble dried as it can impact the waterproof layer, so simply dry flat or on the washing line.
It's easy to take advantage of the offer - the sale price of £21.95 for three pairs in either style is shown on the product pages, just add them to your basket. Sale price ends 28th February.
