How is period underwear designed for you?

How is period underwear designed for you?

For the starty-stoppy, the clotty-clumpy, sudden gushes and mystery flows.

We’re often sold the idea of the perfect 28-day cycle, but our bodies don’t work like that. Between spotting, bleeding, sweating and discharge, the way our bodies and our flows fluctuate is nothing to feel ashamed of. So we’re celebrating our flow for what it is – messy, unpredictable, beautiful, and natural.

Underwear designed for your body

We should be able to put our pants on and happily let our body do its thing. That’s why intimawear by Bodyform® are designed to work in sync with your flows, whatever they may be. The built-in absorbent gusset means you can go liner, towel or tampon-free. They provide unrestricted freedom, day or night, whatever you’re up to.

How they should fit you

To ensure the perfect fit, intimawear by Bodyform® should be slightly tighter than your regular pants to prevent any unwanted surprises. They’re designed to be snug around the leg to keep everything locked in, so they’re effective but still comfy to wear. Our size guide on the product pages show a comparison to UK dress sizes to help you pick the right size for your body.
