Can You Wear Period Pants While Exercising?

Staying active is important, even during your monthly cycle. But worrying about leaks can make breaking a sweat more stressful than it's worth. If you dread chafing, stains, and feeling damp when you move, you may wonder if period pants are a reliable option for working out.

 In this guide, we’ll answer the often-asked question of whether or not you can wear leakproof period pants for exercise.

Can You Exercise in Period Pants?

The quick answer is – absolutely you can! Today's activewear-inspired period pants are designed for freedom of motion and sweat-wicking performance perfect for everything from yoga to HIIT. And we have all the details on how and why they keep you dry.

The snug fit and layers keep pads securely in place. And even on their own, the built-in absorbency contains flow while whisking moisture away from the skin during movement.

Brands like DAME use innovative moisture-control technologies to create underwear that almost feels like a second skin while preventing leaks whilst exercising on your period. So, you can lunge, squat, sprint and stretch without worry or limitations while wearing leakproof period pants.

Are Period Panties Comfortable for Exercise?

To provide exceptional comfort during workouts and activity, athletic-style period underwear is thoughtfully crafted with innovative fabrics and constructions specifically made to work for movement:

  • Soft, non-irritating fabrics like organic cotton or modal gently glide over the skin to prevent painful friction and heat rashes, even when sweaty. The gentle materials stay light and airy against areas that chafe.
  • Added stretch and spandex plus body-hugging cuts create perfect no-ride-up fits that move seamlessly with each squat, lunge, and reach without ever needing a subtle readjust.
  • Cooling finishes like moisture-wicking polyester and quick-dry mesh pull sweat off the body so you stay dry with constant airflow circulation. Strategic mesh ventilation zones also regulate temperature.
  • Absorbent, leakproof panel constructions maximise coverage across the gusset and to the front and back waistband. Advanced core technologies quickly lock fluid away from the lining surface so it never feels wet.

With non-restrictive fabrics built for airflow, sweat control, and stretch plus reliably absorbent technology, today’s period pants deliver unparalleled comfort for your sweatiest workouts.
