Period proof swimwear – sustainable, safe & stylish

I first stumbled upon the period proof underwear and thought that was a great idea (have a peak over here if you’re curious). When I saw that there also was period proof swimwear available I got super sceptical. Is it really possible to make leak free swimwear? Have we reached a point where we can make watertight bottoms that don’t look like diapers under water? The answer is YES.

The secret is three layers that absorbs, locks away and are waterproof. You don’t have to take my word for this. If you’re interested in how it works, scroll to the bottom of the page. There you find a video that explains it all.

The best period proof swimwear

I think the best period proof swimwear come from Modibodi and Rubylove. They differ quite a lot in style but both have quality products. Modibodi offers a more classic line, whereas Rubylove are more colorful and diverse. They’re both well-known brands with tons of satisfied customers.

If you’re a bit unsure about period proof swimwear, here’s a few reasons why you should consider buying a pair.

Some reviews…

Here are some other reviews I found (stole). I’m posting them here to show you that a lot of people really love them. And they do work.

I absolutely love my Bikini. I backed this product on kickstarter and couldn’t recommend it highly enough! No more pelvic floor leaks running from the water to beach cover! Highly worth the investment.

Really happy to have a solution for my 12 year old daughter! She loves the shape and style of the swimmers – and the fact that she is not missing out on joining in swimming, no matter what time of the month. Brilliant!

Fabulous one-piece bathers! My daughter wore these with complete confidence, all day, at a water park! Highly recommended

Saw these on Facebook in November and thought it was too good to be true. Tricked me. I never leave reviews, but these work great. I used them last month during my period and it definitely was a peace of mind. 

How does it work?

So, will anybody be able to tell you’re in your period swimwear? Will they point and laugh? Nope. No one will know. You might even forget about it yourself.

They might look like any regular bottoms or swimwear. But they’re not. They have a hidden lining. There are actually 3 layers.

The outside layer is made of a waterproof material, to not the water in. The middle layer is the period absorbent one. Most period proof swimwear brands have light to moderate absorption capacity. This means that it holds up to 10 ml of fluid. That is like 1-1/2 tampon. This means you don’t need to worry about pads or tampons, at all (like with other period proof swimwear).

You can’t wear them forever on your heavy days of course. The inner layer is moisture-wicking which is great for keeping your dry and odor free. No more stinky bacterias.

You can naturally wear period proof swimwear if you’re having problems with incontinence or heavy discharge. Or any other leakage bothering you. They’ve gotten super popular among competitive swimmers as well.

Are you ready to give period proof swimwear a try?

I get if you’re hesitant. They aren’t cheap and is it really necessary? Well, you don’t need them to survive, that’s for sure. But I’m pretty sure you’ll appreciate them. Modibodi period swimwear are what I would call “vardagslyx”. That is an expression in Swedish which basically means everyday luxury. It’s about that little extra indulgence. You’re worth it – kind of thing. Not a necessity but oh so nice.

Maybe you have another experience with this? Or some other concerns or questions? Just ask and I’ll do what I can to help.

Have a lovely day.
