The Benefits of Period Panties and Why All Women Should Try Them 

It’s no secret that women are powerful and that the world couldn’t run without them, but when it’s that time of the month, many of us feel weak and at the mercy of our cycles. It cannot be hard to figure out what type of products work best for you during this part of your cycle; the options seem endless, and what worked for years may stop working, and you’ll have to find something new. Whether you’ve been using pads since middle school, tampons, or menstrual cups to see you through your cycle, there’s another option worth considering – period panties. 

Period underwear are panties that you can wear when you’re on your period and are so absorbent that most women can use one pair of underwear all day without any leakage. They are designed to absorb the flow of your period and are available in plenty of different styles and thicknesses depending on your typical cycle. In the same way period pads use antimicrobial and moisture-wicking properties to help prevent odor, period panties do too, and the best part? They’re reusable! Keep reading to learn more benefits of period underwear and why you should make the switch today!

They’re Great for the Environment 

In her lifetime, one woman will use around 15,000-period products (pads or tampons), and if you think about how much trash that amounts to, not to mention the packaging these products come in, that’s a huge impact on your environmental footprint. If you care about sustainability and protecting this planet but don’t want the potential downsides to a menstrual cup, period underwear is the perfect fit for you. 

They’re Stylish 

Speaking of a “good fit,” period underwear is a far cry from the granny panties you probably wear when you’re on your monthly cycle because you don’t want to stain or damage your regular, more attractive undies. Period underwear styles come in a wide variety of fabrics, colors, textures, and even designs, which means you can feel confident not only in how you look in your skivvies but also that you’re not going to have any leaking issues – something that pads and tampons can’t deliver on anyway! You don’t have to be a fashionista to appreciate the fact that wearing a pair of sexy underwear on your period is no longer a pipe dream.

They’re Comfortable 

One of the biggest draws to choosing period underwear over conventional period products like tampons and liners is how much more natural they feel. You wear underwear every day already, and you’ll wear it while you’re on your period too, so why not wear a multi-tasking pair of underwear during that time of the month that’s even more comfortable than the underwear you wear every other day?

They’re More Affordable 

Women are used to paying a “pink tax” for all kinds of products that are cheaper for men. From shaving razors to grooming products and feminine hygiene products – it’s expensive and adds up! Investing in reusable period underwear saves you a ton of money in the long run. While spending money on them can feel like an initial investment, commit this fact to your memory – the average woman spends over $13,00 in her lifetime on period products like pads and tampons. 


Wearing period panties during your cycle is incredibly liberating. It’s known as “free bleeding,” which is a reminder that your period is allowed to flow naturally from your body. The best part is that your period underwear allows you to free bleed without worrying about mess or staining. Everyone loves the feeling of freedom, from financial freedom, unplugging on vacation, or graduating school – graduate to a pair of period panties, and you’ll never look back. 

There are other benefits to period underwear beyond the above mentioned, like you can wear them while swimming (yes, there are styles that are that small and thin and still provide protection), they’re easy to stow in a handbag, and never be caught without protection if your cycle starts unexpectedly and of course, their ease of use. Whatever your motivation, consider the above benefits of period underwear and give them a try today; thank me later.
