Our menstrual panties absorb your flow and keep you dry. They are breathable, non-wetting, non-puncturing and have an antibacterial fabric, so you won't need to wear anything else! Plus, they have a shelf life of up to 60 washes so you can wear them for years. After that time, they can be used just like other traditional underwear.
Plus, our panties are incredibly comfortable. They don't smell, don't itch and are antibacterial, so are you ready to throw away the old underwear you've been saving for your period days? They are worn just like your normal underwear, only they have a special technical fabric inside that absorbs menstrual flow. That's why you can wear them during your period without needing to wear anything else.
What you should know about our menstrual underwear
A layer of technical fabric on the inside absorbs the flow. This fabric is very absorbent and collects the menstrual flow. Depending on the model you choose, the level of absorption will vary, but the function is the same, it's just a matter of trying them out and getting to know yourself! They are also water-repellent, so your period won't leak out of them.
The fabric of the panties that comes into contact with the skin is made of cotton. And thanks to an outer layer that makes them waterproof, they prevent menstrual flow from seeping through and staining your clothes. They are a perfect option to live your menstruation in a sustainable and much healthier way and are completely free of chemicals and toxic products, so they do not cause itching or discomfort. They are an ideal alternative for women who are hypersensitive or who want to experience their periods in a more comfortable and healthy way.
They are also a perfect choice for girls! Menstrual underwear goes completely unnoticed and looks like normal underwear. They can be worn and menstruating all day at school or out and about without worrying about staining anything. What's more, they are so comfortable that you can sleep with them, play sports... You can wear them at any time!
Price of our menstrual panties
And if that wasn't enough, they represent a great saving, from an economic and residual point of view. Their lifespan is very long and you will be able to use them for several years. Just think how many disposable products you will no longer need to buy thanks to CYCLO panties?
Because these savings are particularly significant for girls or women who are having their first periods. Keep in mind that during the first years of menstruation, cycles are usually lighter and even irregular, and that most girls can last up to 12 hours with these panties on.
But menstrual underwear is also a more sustainable option for any woman, as it has a lifespan of about 60 washes, which translates to about 5 years of use (with one use per menstruation). And the best thing is that when they lose their absorbency you can continue to use them like normal panties.
Advantages of menstrual underwear
•They are reusable and have a lifespan of about 5 years, so you can wear them for many cycles!
•There is a model for every type of menstruation and woman. From models with super absorption (with a higher capacity than a tampon) or for days with light flow (like the menstrual thong).
•They do not smell, unlike other disposable products that contain chemicals. You will notice that with these panties your period does not smell bad.
•They are breathable and their fabric takes care of the vaginal pH balance and keeps you dry.
•They are also very comfortable and very soft to the touch, so you can sleep, play sports or do any activity without the risk of leaks.
•Washing them is as easy as rinsing them in cold water and throwing them in the washing machine with the rest of your clothes.
•Menstrual underwear doesn't move, so you can say goodbye to worrying that your pad will wrinkle or make you feel uncomfortable.
When to wear sanitary nappies and for how long?
You can wear them for any occasion on their own without anything else, as the special fabric absorbs your period, or in combination with a menstrual cup to feel more secure. For a peaceful night's sleep (these panties don't move!), for postpartum bleeding and for sports, as they allow you to move around without worrying if your pad or panty liner has moved, or if your tampon is leaking.
These absorbent panties collect approximately the flow equivalent to two normal tampons. You can wear them for up to 12 hours, but like any other menstrual product, this will depend a lot on the amount of bleeding and the model you choose. That's why it's so important that you get to know yourself and try them out to see how many hours they will last without needing a replacement.
•Light flow: we recommend the CYCLO menstrual panty.
•Medium or heavy flow: we recommend the CYCLO menstrual panty model (normal or heavy).
Our recommendation of 12 hours is a measure of hygiene, it does not mean that in all cases they will last this period of time without leaking, as with the menstrual cup. When your panties are full you will notice that they stop absorbing; usually you will feel a little damp and you will know that it is time to change and wash them (as you would do with normal underwear). Here you can see the size chart to see what size menstrual panty is right for you. If you are in doubt between two sizes, we recommend that you buy the smaller size, as they tend to be slightly larger.
How to wash your menstrual panties
Wash your absorbent menstrual panties before first use (cold water programme). This will activate the fabric and improve its absorbency. For optimal care, hand wash or machine wash in cold water at 30°C after each use. Avoid using fabric softener and bleach or any detergent containing them. Ideally, use soap or detergent for delicate, wool or baby clothes. Do not tumble dry or iron. The best way to dry them is in the sun or in a place where they are exposed to natural light.
