What is the Best Underwear for Your Period?

By Heather

Periods. Let's talk about periods. More specifically, let's talk about periods and panties. If you're like me, you probably have underwear that you designate as your “period panties.” These are usually large, roomy, and possibly stained with the ghosts of periods past. It doesn't matter whether you use tampons, pads, or a menstrual cup, period panties are an issue for all of us. Fortunately, we live in a brave new world, full of ingenuity, where there are now panties you can buy specifically for your period. Take a look!

High-waisted panties make the best period panties! You get plenty of support, you don't feel like your underwear's about to fall down, and look how cute these are!

Icon Undies understands that sometimes accidents happen, especially when you're on your period. I haven't worn these, but I bet they're just as helpful with other types of accidents – like bloody ones.

Every period deserves a little levity. These won't necessarily make your cramps better, but they might make you giggle!
