How does period swimwear work?

Period swimwear has an absorbent lining which is slightly thinner than some period pants.

It absorbs period blood and makes it leak proof and suitable for light to medium flow or one tampons worth of flow. On lighter days you can wear for longer.

On medium flow days or heavy flow days, you may want to use a menstrual cup or tampons to absorb some menstrual blood if you're going to be in the water for a long time.

The gusset is antibacterial and breathable, plus quick drying!

The outer fabric is water repellent and this stops water (from the pool or sea) absorbing into the inside of the swimsuit.

To ensure this is effective make sure your swimsuit has a really good fit around the legs - you don't want any gaping when you're moving!

Always rinse your period swimsuit after use and definitely avoid fabric softener and tumble dryer.

"Prompt reply to my query and fast delivery. Love the swimsuit! Only ordered from Cheeky Wipes because my first order with another company was going to be delayed. I thought I'd keep the delayed swimsuit, once received, as a spare, but have decided to send it back and get a refund as the Cheeky Wipes swim suit is a lot nicer and if I need a spare, I'd rather get exactly the same swimsuit from Cheeky Wipes." Emma, July 2022
