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, fabric softener or bleach can affect the product absorbency or the lace to fray.
Fabric & Care:
Body of the Pant: Polyamide/Spandex (88%/12%),
Lining : Cotton/Elastane (95%/5%)
Middle layers: Cotton/Bamboo (80%/20%)
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 Hip Pants?
Well, firstly of course, they are high-cut on the leg, sitting more in line with your hips. Aside from that, we love the 'hip' vibe to them, just a little bit saucy with that high cut leg.

'Hip' - high-leg and high-waisted period pants. Hip, a little sexy and super comfortable plus leak-free with confidence. The perfect eco alternative to tampons or sanitary pads.
Definition: 'Cooler than cool, the pinnacle of what is "it". Beyond all trends and conventional coolness.'.
For us, this isn't simply the super cool styling of these knickers. If you're choosing to wear period knickers rather than disposable period protection, then by definition, you're hip. You're an early adopter, you're someone who gives a stuff about our planet, not afraid to step away from the planet polluting norm. And that makes you, well, 'hip'.
And we love you for it!
These are new to our range, order 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
