What are period swimsuits?


The period swimwear is an ideal swimsuit to wear at the beach or pool, for women who are going through their menstruation. It is identical to a normal bikini, only that it has a hidden lining, specially designed to absorb the blood of the period. Nowadays, there are many different types, models, and designs.

How does period swimwear work?

Menstrual bikinis are made with a fabric that allows the incorporation of layers of protection and a core, suitable for submersion in water. 

This protective core retains blood, while the swimsuit's breathable polyamide fabric allows water to flow through, allowing it to dry quickly.

Depending on the woman's flow, she can wear it for up to 12 hours, which is equivalent to 1 or 2 tampons. So, with the menstrual bikini, you can be without problems at the beach or pool, without fear of leakage.




Some considerations to take into account about period swimsuits

If you have never worn menstrual underwear, you need to know that most period swimwear models are suitable mainly for women with light flows. Therefore, it is recommended to wear it at the beginning or the end of menstruation. In case you are a woman with heavy flow, it is better to reinforce the care by using a menstrual cup or tampon so that you are more secure.

On the other hand, you must take special care with your swimsuit. So, once you wear it, whether at the pool or the beach, you must rinse your swimsuit immediately once you take it off with water, so you can remove any salt or chlorine it may have. However, keep in mind that the water should be cold because hot water can damage the special protection of the bikini. 

Another important consideration is that, you can indeed wash it in the washing machine, using cold water, it should always be in a gentle cycle, with a mild detergent, and without fabric softener, to avoid damaging the fibers.

Finally, it is not recommended that you put your bikini in the dryer, it is preferable that you do it outdoors and not in strong sunlight, as direct sunlight can damage it.

As you can see, period swimwear can be the perfect solution for those days when you want to enjoy a day at the beach or pool without your menstruation being a problem. So, if you want to buy one, we recommend an excellent option, which besides being beautiful and effective, is environmentally friendly.
