✨ High-waisted and super comfortable period pants knowing you're safe and leak-free with confidence. The perfect eco alternative to tampons or sanitary pads.
These Fearless period pants have been given an absorbency upgrade. Instead of the usual 2 absorbent layers of cotton jersey, we have added an additional one, giving you an extra 50% absorbency. So they can hold 3 tampons worth of fluid rather than two. Great to wear overnight or if you're out and about for the day. Without adding bulk. Don't worry, these don't look like nappies!
As with any sanitary option, if you're using these as your only means of protection, on your heaviest days we recommend that you change them during the day, just like you would a pad or tampon, or wear a cloth san pad that can we whipped out at lunchtime without any faff.
The Cheeky Period Pants range do not have any logos or labels on the outside of the pants anywhere making them very discrete! They are sold without fancy packaging to keep the price down and saving on unnecessary waste.
Fabric & Care
Body: Nylon/Elastane (75%/25%),
Lining & 3x Middle Layers: Cotton/Elastane (95%/5%)
Waterproof outer layer of Oeko-Tex certified TPU
With a waterproofed outer layer, you've got maximum protection but also keeping you comfortable:
Machine wash cold (maximum 30 degrees) and then hang dry. Do not use bleach or fabric softener or put them in the tumble dryer. This will affect the absorbency and can cause the elastic in the lace to fray.
Can putting period blood in the washing machine contaminate my other washing?
An average period is just 30ml to 72ml of blood over the course of 5 days (= 5-12 teaspoons worth) so there is only a small amount on the pad anyway! For best results, we recommend cold soaking before washing. But even if you put your soiled items in the washing straight away there is NO risk of 'contaminating' anything else in the wash... so chuck em in!
Sizes are true to UK sizes.
The cut of the style means they are snug around the leg. If you feel this will be an issue for you then we would recommend ordering the next size up from your normal size.
