Period-Proof Your Travel Plans with Reliable Period Underwear

Period Underwear

Hitting the road for an adventure is exciting! But if you're due for your period around travel time, it can add a bit of stress. 

No need to worry about packing bulky pads or tampons or scrambling to find a bathroom every few hours. Worst yet, taking medication to skip your period – the raw vengeance with which Aunt Irma comes back is quite frankly a crying matter. This is where period underwear comes in! 

These comfy, leakproof undies are a game-changer for active women and travellers. They offer peace of mind and freedom. Now, you can focus on exploring new places without period anxieties.

What is Period Underwear?

Period underwear is a game-changer for active women. 

It's comfy, leakproof underwear that absorbs your period blood just like a pad or tampon but without the bulk or risk of leaks. 

Made with unique absorbent materials, it traps your period directly into the built-in lining. Period undies keep you feeling fresh and confident all day long.

Unlike tampons or pads, you don't need to worry about changing them as frequently, which means less time spent hunting for bathrooms and more time exploring.

What About Menstrual Cups and Discs, You Ask? 

Menstrual cups and discs are another option for some travellers. 

However, they might not be the most convenient choice for everyone. This is especially true if you're new to them or will need easy access to clean bathrooms for insertion and removal. 

Period underwear requires no special insertion or removal process, making it a more user-friendly option for travel.

Why Choose Period Underwear for Travel?

Leakproof Confidence

Unlike tampons or pads that can leak if not changed frequently, period underwear absorbs your period directly into the built-in lining. 

This means no more worries about leaks ruining your favourite clothes or feeling self-conscious while sightseeing.

Ultimate Comfort

Made from soft, breathable fabrics like organic cotton, comfortable period underwear feels just like your regular undies. 

They come in assorted styles, from hipster briefs to sporty bikini cuts, ensuring you find the perfect fit for all-day comfort. It's ideal for wearing under any outfit, from comfy leggings to cute travel dresses.

Goodbye Bulky Bags

Packing for a trip can be a struggle, especially when you have to factor in bulky boxes of pads or tampons. Period underwear occupies minimal space in your luggage, freeing up room for souvenirs and other essentials.

Sustainable Choice for Eco-Conscious Travellers

Disposable menstrual products create a lot of waste. Eco-friendly period underwear is a reusable option that helps reduce your environmental impact. 

 Easy to Wash

Period underwear is surprisingly easy to care for. After rinsing in cold water, wash in cold to lukewarm water with your regular laundry. Just remember that these undies aren’t for machine drying, so if there is no clothesline, you might have to “decorate” the bathroom. 

Choosing the Right Period Undies

Period underwear comes in different absorbency levels, so you can choose the ones that best suit your flow and activities.

  • Light absorbency: Perfect for spotting, lighter days, as a backup, or for shorter wear time. G-strings fall in this category and are good for wearing during workouts under gym tights if you don't want VPL (visible panty lines).
  • Moderate absorbency: Ideal for most days of your period, or activities like sightseeing or light exercise. These undies don’t have the extra panel up the back of the panties, making them lightweight and comfy for movement and exercise.  
  • Heavy absorbency: These period undies are great for heavy flow days, overnight leaks, or extended wear times. We’ve added an extended absorbent panel up the back to protect sheets and clothes from leaks overnight and extended wear (like a flight or a hike). 

Super absorbency: With an absorbent panel that holds up to 60ml and extends from front to back waist seam for overnights and extended wear times.

What to Pack in Your Period-Proof Travel Toolkit?

  • Period Underwear. This should be your main form of protection. Pack enough pairs to last your entire trip, with a backup for unexpected delays. Eco Period offers a choice of comfy, absorbent, and stylish period undies that are perfect for travel. 
  • Bring A Wet Bag. This double-pocket waterproof Wet Bag is perfect for storing clean period underwear in one pocket and used period undies in the other until you can wash them.
  • Gentle Laundry Detergent. Washing period underwear is easy. Hand wash them in cold water with a gentle detergent and hang them to dry. Pack a small travel-size bottle of detergent or our Laundry Soap.
  • Pain Relief Medication. Pack some pain relievers like ibuprofen or paracetamol to help manage cramps. Essential oils like clary sage can also help.
  • Wet Wipes. These are handy for freshening up on the go, especially if bathroom access is limited.

Period-Proof Swimwear. While period undies are fantastic, you shouldn’t wear them in chlorinated pools. Of course, we have the solution for you here, too. Period-proof swimwear! These are specially created for comfort and inconspicuousness on the beach or in the pool.

Additional Tips for a Stress-Free Period on the Road

Listen to Your Body

Don't push yourself too hard. If you're feeling tired or crampy, take a break and rest.
