Product Knowledge

Period pants look and feel like normal underwear, except you can bleed in them. Trust your pants to deal with whatever flows your vagina throws at them, without any unexpected surprises.

intimawear by Bodyform™ is a range of pants designed for any flows your vagina throws at them. There's no need for any other period products as the built-in absorbent gusset is there to lock everything snugly in. They're also better for the planet and a more sustainable option for your period - just bleed, wash and repeat, wear after wear.

intimawear by Bodyform™ are intentionally slightly snugger than your normal pants, to make sure they fit securely to keep everything locked in. Our sizes are based on the global standard for underwear but if you're unsure, we'd recommend you take a look at our size guides to make sure of the measurements (these are on our product pages).

We have dozens of different styles and colours available. Visit our product pages to browse and choose your favourite

You don’t need to wear any other period care whilst wearing our period pants if you have a light to medium flow. If you have a very heavy period flow, we’d recommend a thin towel or liner as an additional backup - there's no right or wrong way when it comes to period care, whatever works for you.

Our period pants cater for all flows, from your lightest to your heaviest days.

Consumers can wear Bodyform period underwear with confidence because they are safe, sustainable and provide superior performance. Our pants contain silver copper zeolite to prevent odor when wearing the pants for up to 12-hours, which our research shows is a key concern for customers. Our collection also includes ranges that are without an antibacterial property for those who prefer an alternative.

All of our washable underwear is certified according to Oeko-Tex standard 100 which means that every single component has been tested for harmful substances and that the underwear has been designated as harmless for human health.

Well, we tested it and we've no concerns about any issues like infections arising from wearing intimawear by Bodyform™ for more than 8 hours, no matter the temperature or climate. The underwear has a breathable layer that allows the skin to breathe throughout the day, whatever you're up to.

No, it's just like wearing normal underwear.

The absorption depends on the absorbency level of the pants.  You can search by flow here.

Our pants are made of a blend of body fabric (a technical way of saying fabrics that have first contact with the skin and will move and stretch with your body), lace and elastic (style dependent). Our Bikini style as has a simple elastic waistband, whereas our Hipster has a lace waistband, if that's more your thing.

The absorbent gusset uses what we call TriTech performance. Comprised of three layers: wicking, absorbent and breathable. The wicking layer is made of modern technical fabrics which draw moisture away from the body - similar to sportswear. These fabrics are made from high-tech polyester which, unlike cotton, quickly transport fluids into the absorption layer to feel as dry as possible on the surface. The absorbent layer holds the fluid and is treated with a special antibacterial solution which helps to reduce odour, too. Additionally, the gusset is sealed around the edges, so you can trust it to keep your fluids in.

Over an average use of 12 hours, consumer tests (in France, UK, Colombia) showed that 90% of women did not have any unexpected accidents. Depending on your period flow, this can be up to 12 hours.

Whatever your vagina throws at them - blood, discharge, after-sex flows, the in-between, the was-that-sweat? Finally we have pants that are designed for our physiology. So pop them on, let your body flow and let your pants do the rest.

Don't worry! The pants have a specialised wicking and absorbent layer that is treated with an antimicrobial odour control system - which sounds technical but basically means it intercepts any smells, even if it's hot and sweaty.

Climate change is something we take seriously, and we know that what consumers want and need is changing along with that. Our washable pants offer a sustainable choice of period care that has 68% less impact on the environment** - just wash and rewear, again and again. intimawear by Bodyform™ reduces the carbon footprint to approximately one third that of a disposable towel and 88% less waste is produced, versus using a pair of underwear and two Ultra Towels (compared to 1 Bodyform Ultra Normal, 1 Bodyform Ultra Night and a panty made out of 50% cotton / 50% nylon).

Product Care

We tested intimawear by Bodyform™ and we guarantee the same performance in excess of 50 washes.

They might take a little longer to dry than your normal pants as there's a few extra layers of fabric. If you're in a rush, pop them in the tumble dryer on a low heat.

Yes, for sure - pop them in with your normal load.

There's a few easy steps to washing your intimawear by Bodyform™. Firstly, rinse them in cold water. Then, pop them in your washing machine at 40 degrees with your usual load (don't use fabric softener or bleach as this can affect the efficiency of the pants). Then simply hang to dry or tumble dry on low. We wouldn't recommend you dry clean them.

If you first rinse them in cold water and then pop them in machine at 40 degrees with some detergent (but not fabric softener or bleach), this will wash out the blood and make them ready to go again, when you next need them.

They will! Just make sure you use a low heat.

The intimawear by Bodyform™ underwear range has been designed with periods in mind. They’re ready for all your flows; for the endless spotting, the clots and the clumps, the sort-of-discharge, sort-of-blood, the is-this-period-over-or-what, and everything in between. Thanks to Tritech Performance, intimawear™ by Bodyform allows you to go liner, towel, tampon or cup free during your menstrual cycle, whatever you're up to.
