Period Swimsuit / Swimming Costume
Great for: Whether you're expecting your first period, are established menstruator or on a light to medium flow day of your period.
Use if: You fancy spending time at the beach or the pool without the faff of using a tampon or a menstrual cup to contain your period blood. Perfect period proof swimwear for tweens or teens for school swimming pool lessons!
Sizing tip: Size 2 to 24 - these do run on the larger side so please size down if between sizes - use the straps to adjust for a small/larger bust size
The fabrics used in our period pants and period products, do not contain PFOS, PFOA or 'antimicrobial silver'.
* When trying on do not remove hygiene sticker and try over own underwear - no returns will be accepted if this is removed
What we love:
- Made with treated nylon outer fabric which is water resistant and leak proof for lighter periods
- Double adjustable straps means you'll have the perfect fit
- Removable breast pads which help preserve your modesty if that's important to you, machine washing is fine but remove the breast pads and handwash separately to avoid the backing fabric from separating which may happen in the machine - this will not affect use if it occurs.
- Holds two tampons worth of menstrual blood, perfect for a lighter days
- Suitable as a backup to menstrual cup or tampon for heavy flow days

These period swimsuits are 'gamechanging!'
How absorbent is Cheeky Period Proof Swimwear?
The absorbent lining is slightly thinner than some period underwear, so avoid wearing solo on your heaviest days. However, the gusset is breathable, plus quick drying!
How does period swimwear work?
The outer fabric is water repellent. This stops water (from the pool or sea) absorbing into the inside of the swimsuit. It absorbs period blood instead, making it perfect for light periods.
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!
How do I wash my period swimwear?
Taking care of your Cheeky® period swimming costume couldn't be easier, Please wash cold with no fabric softener or bleach. Anything hotter than 30 degrees can impact the waterproof nature of the material and failing to adhere to the washing instructions will invalidate any returns.
