What Are Period Undies and How Do They Work?

We’ve got two words for you: Period. Underwear. If this is the first time you’re hearing about them, you may be wondering “what are period proof undies and how do they work?”. Join us as we explore the comfort, total protection and fresh feels of your new favourite period BFF.

Period undies are like your regular underwear except they’re made for menstruation. They don’t smell, the don’t leak, and they don’t need to be changed very often and yes, they are reusable. Basically, they break all the rules. Your new period ritual is here, all you have to do is ‘Wear. Bleed. Wash. Repeat.’

All About Period Proof Underwear

Imagine a pair of undies that can hold up to four tampons’ worth of blood, without leaking. You can wear them for up to 10 hours before changing and they have anti-odour technology to keep you smelling fresh from breakfast ‘til that night-time Netflix binge. Just like you, our period proof underwear have layers. Three of them in fact, which means you can feel three times more confident when your period rolls around.


Triple Threat Protection

Each layer is designed to work hard to keep you feeling comfortable, fresh and dry. Let’s start from the top down. First, the moisture-wicking top layer absorbs your blood and moisture quicker than you can say ‘no worries’.

Meanwhile, the middle layer is made using specialised antibacterial technology that locks in and neutralises bad odours and bacteria. No smells here!

Lastly is the leak-proof barrier that keeps leaks in check and lets your skin breathe. So, while our period underwear is working hard in the background, you’ll be #doingyou in a super soft, comfortable pair of undies that you might just prefer over your regular ones.

When Can I Wear Period Undies?

Whenever you like! Whether that’s while you’re anticipating your period, during or after, they’ve got you covered. Of course, these undies are specifically designed for period blood, but they’ll also keep you feeling fresh and dry on your heavier discharge days or when you’re powering through that sweaty gym sesh. Depending on your flow you can wear them on their own, AM or PM, or as a backup with your fave Libra products. It’s completely up to you! They’re also super comfy and discreet, so you can rock them under your loungewear or say yes to the bodycon dress.


What About Washing these Period Undies?

In terms of how to wash Libra Period Proof Undies, we recommend you give them a quick rinse with cold water first then, throw ’em in a cold washing machine with your other clothes. Don’t worry about your other items, we promise they’ll come out clean and blood-free. When it comes to drying, hang them on the line and you’re good to go. Avoid using bleach, softeners and tumble dryers – your period undies work best without them!
