Love the fit, they are snug but not too tight or uncomfortable so I feel confident that I will be protected. I have purchased 3 pairs now and they are a life saver.

“Love these underwear! They are comfortable to wear, easy to care for and definitely protect me during my period.

beth

Buying another pair. So comfortable. I didn't expect to be so impressed with them. I was hesitant to try. Definitely nice to have the extra security/protection.

courtney w.

This is my 3rd month using the period underwear and I'm never switching back. Thankfully, no more accidents have occurred and sometimes I forget I'm on my period. Thank you! forever will recommend.

irene g.

I own probably every brand of period panties out there, even obscure amazon deep dive brands. These are, hands down, the BEST ones I own. No other brand I have wicks away the moisture like these. They absorb a lot more than any other brand I have, also.

jennifer w.

I didn’t trust it at first but now I’m sold. My period lasts 4 days with 2 days being so heavy I wear a tampon AND a pad. These are good as a back up if I don’t have a pad on me or wear w no tampon on my first or last day. Love them.
