Period panties are a breakthrough for hifemale genedaughter. It is a useful, comfortable and, in the long term, a practical alternative to the methods of protection usually adopted during the days of the menstrual cycle, such as tampons or cups. Being a novelty on the market, there are many doubts that we will try to solve in this article.
What are period panties?
Washable and reusable, Herloop period panties are designed to replace tampons, disposable pads or menstrual cups.
They look like normal panties. Comfortable, practical and made with certified materials, they are worn like normal underwear with one difference: inside there is an absorbent layer that can contain blood loss and neutralize bad odors.
With them you will not feel any sensation of humidity thanks to the cotton layer which, in contact with the mucous membranes, remains perfectly dry.
Today there are different models and colors, but -above all- of all sizes and for all flows, designed to satisfy everyone’s tastes and needs.
Why should I choose absorbent panties during my period? The advantages offered by this innovative product for feminine hygiene are innumerable:
- Although its price may seem high at first glance, it is an initial investment that -in the long term- will compensate us, saving a lot of money!
- Saving is not, however, limited to a purely economic matter. We will also significantly reduce the amount of waste normally produced with traditional methods. The plastic that accumulates, often – unfortunately – even in the oceans, due to the consumption of disposable tampons and pads is completely out of control and has a devastating impact on our already fragile ecosystem.
- They are a guarantee in terms of health. The fabrics with which this underwear is made are hypoallergenic and breathable, so they fulfill their function without altering the vaginal pH and allow the skin to breathe. On the other hand, some tampons and pads can be very harmful, as they can cause skin irritations and allergic reactions.
- Comfort. Practical and comfortable, they adapt perfectly to our forms without being tight. When you wear them, they will feel like wearing normal underwear and, unlike invasive products like tampons, they will make you feel very comfortable.
How to wash period panties?
To wash the period panties after use, simply rinse them in cold water – rubbing them, if necessary, with a little soap – or put them in the washing machine at 30°C WITHOUT bleach or fabric softener, otherwise their absorptive capacity may be reduced. Avoid using the dryer, it is recommended, in fact, to let them dry in the open air.
How long can they be used?
Period panties are designed to last from the start of the day to the afternoon or even all night, between 8 and 12 hours.
However, for hygienic reasons, it is preferable to change them in the middle of the day.
If you are not at home, rinse them immediately with cold water and, after draining them, put them in an airtight bag with snap closure, and wash them immediately when you get home.
The ideal is to have at least 3 panties to be able to use them throughout the menstrual cycle.
Obviously, this advice is very subjective, since it depends on our menstrual flow.
If it is inside the bottom, the menstrual panties can be used alone, on the contrary, in case of heavy flow, it is good to combine it with other protective devices.
What are period panties made of?
Absorbent briefs consist of 3 or 4 layers of superimposed fabrics, each having a specific function: a waterproof membrane, an antimicrobial and anti-odor absorbent layer, and a soft and hypoallergenic fabric in contact with the mucous membranes, sometimes in organic cotton.
The materials used for these panties are sewn on top of each other, which is why the prices of these underwear are more expensive than those of the most common lingerie.
