First off, if you're new to period pants and a bit hesitant (we do understand) please remember that we have a 90 day risk free trial. LOVE them or your money back. If you're looking for period proof pants designed and tested here in the UK this is the place to buy!
Our vegan certified eco friendly period pants come in a range of styles and sizes. We guarantee that you'll stay feeling dry even on heavier days or with heavy periods. Our period pants are all super soft and super comfy, offering full coverage to the front and rear waistband across most styles meaning that they're leak proof.
They'll absorb your period easily on medium flow or heavy flow days, leaving you leak free. They're perfect period pants for teens and tweens because they're simply different knickers that you wear on your period. No faffing with disposable pads!
Cheeky Pants - the Best Period Pants UK
Cheeky Pants were developed by the Cheeky Wipes team who have been specialising in 'Simple Reusables Alternatives' since 2008.
After having children, Helen our founder realised that tampons etc just weren't working for her any longer. This lead her on a mission to create comfortable, absorbent reusable menstrual products.
'Period pants have been a game changer for me since having kids!
I love the last lot pants I bought wash well and will be buying more I’m sure.' Natalie, Oct 2021
The range started with reusable sanitary pads and washable panty liners in 2014. Helen then realised that there was a gap in the market for reusable period knickers in the UK.
So in 2017, we launched the Cheeky Pants range of reusable period pants. Their moisture wicking properties and high absorbency has made them a hit with customers who regularly call them 'game-changing'.
'Game changing! I shall definitely be building a stash. I was sceptical but it was so much comfier and easier than regular products.
Delivery was super quick and the sizing was great. Thank you :)' HF, Dec 2021
The range has expanded as customers asked for more styles of period pants. The high waisted versions were followed by period pants for teens and tweens and a very popular period thong.
We also developed our sleep shorts which are absorbent pyjama shorts, meaning that you're guaranteed a good nights sleep, even on your period!
Our period knickers hold between two tampons worth of blood and four tampons worth. This means you can wear by themselves for regular or lighter days, or as a extra protection and back up to menstrual cups, reusable sanitary towels or panty liners. For heavy flow, look for our heavy flow options.
'These are seriously, seriously game-changing pants!
Having been a period-pants cynic for a while, I took the plunge and I'm so glad I did. These pants bring a new level of flexibility and freedom to my life.
They're super comfortable and discreet but secure. Absolutely love them. Never going back to landfill-clogging disposable products.' Beth, Dec 2021
If you're unsure how to wash a pair of period pants, it's actually really simple. Soaking in cold water beforehand is optional but does help minimise staining. For lightly soiled pants, just chuck them straight in the wash. If your pants are particularly heavily soiled, a quick hand wash first, then squirt with stain remover and cold water wash in the washing machine when you're next washing your clothing.
Water temperature setting is important when you're washing period pants or reusable sanitary pads, hot water will 'set' any blood stains, so 30c or lower is recommended. We don't recommend a rapid or quick wash cycle, use a decent length of wash cycle (at least an hour). Your standard laundry detergent will be fine, we use a standard bio powder here.
Why buy Cheeky Pants? Unlike High St brands, we've got a team of experts on hand to help you make the switch.
'Excellent company. I’ve ordered from Cheeky Wipes several times over the last 2 years and every order has arrived quickly and has been nothing short of perfect.
'I had a query last year so emailed the company and got a reply back straight away which was both professional and answered my question.
I now have a full range of their period pants which are fantastic - it’s taken my period to something I would dread every month to something I now hardly notice.
If you’re thinking of trying period pants I’d recommend Cheeky Wipes ones as I’d tried a few other well known makes and found they leaked a bit and left me feeling a bit damp and self conscious but these are a real game changer, no leaks, dampness or smell- I can just forget I even have my period! ' Emma, Sept 2021
