Period Panties

The latest in reusable menstrual products

Disposable menstrual products are becoming less and less relevant in a world with too much waste. Period panties are the latest in the move towards reusable menstrual products that work for you and the environment.

Bakgat Period Panties come in three absorbency levels: liner, regular and heavy. Each of these is available in either bikini or boyleg cut.

The panties are made from stretchy cotton Lycra and the absorbent layers are made from 100% cotton because it absorbs better and its natural. The added bonus is they don’t smell.

There is a waterproof cover which is made from TPU.

Recommendations when choosing your panties:

In the heavy panties the pad goes all the way from the back to the front of the panty.

The heavy panties are best for sleeping in as they are chunky. For a very heavy flow a woman can use them during the day. They absorb 45ml – which is A LOT!

The regular panty has the pad spanning most of the panty but not all the way to the waist.

A regular pad generally will work for most woman during the day. They absorb 25ml

The liner pad is thin but still absorbs 10ml which is great for spotting days or ladies who suffer from incontinence.

The “Fun” panty prints. These are custom made and dependent on material currently available. Once an order has been received we will whats app you the available prints then we will make the ones you choose. .

I do love them, I can’t imagine my life without them.

They have a special place in my cupboard where they wait to be the star of the month. Now they should just come with chocolates and it would be perfect!

Forgotten are the days of multiple pads and tampons….. I love my mooncup and undies. Sometimes I do experience spillages but it’s either heavier flow or wrong position. But I’m happy and cupped 😍

I wear these whenever I have my period, they are super comfy and I feel reassured when I’m wearing them!
