If you want to give one pair a go, we have a fab trial where you can try your first pair of pants at no risk and put it through its paces for a cycle. If you don't get on with that pair, let us know. Full details of the trial are here and its a great way to try one pair before committing.
Can I wear my period pants by themselves?
We know that every menstrual cycle is different. Here at Cheeky HQ, our periods range from a few days of light bleeding to full on peri-menopausal flooding. You know your cycle best and we recommend you change your protection in line with your flow. If you go through many tampons or pads per day, then you'll need to change these more frequently. With the absorbent protection right from the front to rear waistband, you have full coverage.
On a light day we can wear them by themselves and on heavier days, we change throughout the day to keep comfortable. We also like to team with a cloth pad on those days for an easy change if we are out and about as it can be whipped and swapped with no faff!
Do get in touch with us via email or live chat, or fill in our questionnaire and we can offer advice and guidance.
How do I wash my period pants?
Note: Tumble drying, drying on direct heat (eg radiator), fabric softener or bleach can affect the product absorbency.
Fabric & Care:
Body of the Pant: Nylon/Elastane (75%/25%),
Lining: Cotton/Elastane (95%/5%)
Middle Layer: polyester/nylon (80%/20%).
Inner body 87% Nylon 13% Elastane
Waterproof Outer layer of Oeko-Tex certified TPU
Can putting period blood in the washing machine contaminate my other washing?
An average period is just 30ml to 72ml of blood over the course of 5 days (= 5-12 teaspoons worth) so there is only a small amount on the pad anyway! For best results, we recommend cold soaking before washing. But even if you put your soiled items in the washing straight away there is NO risk of 'contaminating' anything else in the wash... so chuck em in!
Why are they called Confident Pants?
We know that sometimes you want to wear pants with just a bit more control, defining your shape, with sleek lines under fitted clothing. The absorbent sections run from the front to the back keeping you comfortable and dry all day and night long.

'Confident' - super high-waisted shapewear period pants. High-waisted control top, means you're sleek and super comfortable plus leak-free with confidence. The perfect eco alternative to tampons or sanitary pads.
Definition: 'having the ability to walk through a hallway full of people and not caring what they think'.
We know that as soon as lockdown restrictions are over, we shall all be raring to go and celebrate. But, Joe Wicks PE aside, it's difficult to stay out of the fridge and away from the drinks cabinet to stave off boredom. We aren't judging as we are in the same boat ourselves! But when you do want to party like its 2019 (or just fancy dressing up for dinner some saturday evening), our shapewear control top period pants are perfect for wearing under fitted dresses, giving a sleek silhouette.
The inner absorbent sections runs from front to back waistband and features our usual 4 layers, which are absorbent and moisture wicking, keeping you dry and comfy all day - or night long.
These are new to our range and we have had lots of great feedback, however, some customers have mentioned that the cut of the style means they are very snug around the leg. If you feel this will be an issue for you then we would recommend ordering the next size up from your normal size.
The body of the pant is nylon and elastane (75%/25%) and the lining is 95% Cotton 5 % Elastane, inner body 87% Nylon 13% Elastane and the middle layer are polyester/nylon (80%/20%). With a waterproofed outer layer, you've got maximum protection but also keeping you comfortable:
- moisture wicking
- never leak
- breathable fabric
As with any sanitary option, if you're using these as your only means of protection, we recommend that you change them during the day, just like you would a pad or tampon.
These pants can only be returned/exchanged if they have been tried on OVER underwear and come back in their original packaging.
Machine wash cold (maximum 30 degrees) and then hang dry. Do not use bleach or fabric softener or put them in the tumble dryer. This will affect the absorbency and can cause the elastic in the lace to fray
