Ask any woman or girl about the most embarrassing thing that can happen during their period, and you will get the same answer: staining clothes!
We are all aware of how frustrating it is to constantly inspect your clothes after getting up or to discover a stained bedsheet when you awaken. Don’t even get us started on the difficulty of removing period stains from your clothes. And if they're brand-new clothing, that's much worse!
This is where our biggest hero, the sanitary panties, saves our lives. You may have seen advertisements for sanitary panties on social media or heard your friends mention them, but how exactly do sanitary panties work?
What are sanitary panties?
The purpose of sanitary panties is to keep you dry and leak-proof. They are worn with sanitary pads and typically offer a snug fit and extra features to avoid leaks. The underwear has an additional layer that extends above the hip line, is highly waterproof, and can stop leaks even when you're lying down.
Our sanitary panties are designed to snugly hold the curve of the buttocks, which prevents the pad from shifting and causing back leaks. The panties allow for the wings of the pad to be tucked in, preventing side leakages and keeps the pad from bunching up or sliding around due to body movement.
Most importantly, the sanitary panties will protect moisture from getting on your skin while absorbing any leaked menstrual blood.
How and when to use sanitary panties?
Like everyday underwear, sanitary panties are comfortable and functional. Simply put on a pair together with your sanitary pad and tuck your pad wings under the extra layer. You may wear one if you are menstruating or if you suspect that your period is coming soon. This helps to ensure that you are protected from leaks even if your period comes unexpectedly.
Soiled areas of the sanitary panties are easy to wash and clean. Treating the stain is as easy as soaking the underwear in cold water for 30 minutes. Afterward, wash and dry as usual!
However, keep in mind that sanitary panties are different from period panties, which replaces sanitary pads and tampons. Although sanitary panties help to prevent stains and minimise leakage, they must still be worn with a sanitary pad.
Young Hearts’ Sanitary Panties Collection offers a range of panties that are not only reliable and comfortable but also come in various sizes and chic styles, putting the ‘fun’ in functionality. Pick from Midi or Maxi styles we offer depending on how high-waisted you like your underwear. The best style for you will depend on your personal tastes and your period flow.
Never worry about leaks again!
