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: Cotton/Elastane (95%/5%)
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 Sporty Pants?
We can't do better than the original 'Sporty Spice' to describe these period pants, which kiss ass and are also favourites within our local Ladies Football team, 'HRT United'. Well tried and tested!

What if I don't like my Cheeky Pants?
We love our Cheeky Pants and think you will too, but for your peace of mind, you can try one pair of pants for 45 days and if you don't get on with them for any reasons, we'll give you a full refund.
