10 Benefits of Using Period Pants

Welcome to a new era of period care with period pants! In this article, we're talking all things period pants. We'll uncover the advantages of choosing period pants over traditional, single-use options and introduce you to DAME's own pants. Are you worried about environmental consciousness? Want unmatched comfort? Get ready to experience a menstrual revolution.

The 10 benefits of period pants

1. Environmental Impact

When you choose reusable period pants, you're not only making a choice for comfort but also for the environment. By opting for reusable options, you significantly reduce the waste generated by disposable alternatives. This small change in your menstrual routine translates to a substantial positive impact on our planet.

2. Ease of Use

Putting on period pants is like second nature - it's as easy as slipping into your everyday underwear. The simplicity and comfort they offer are what make them a game-changer in menstrual care. 

If you ask us, they're even easier than tampons or pads. Nothing to insert or worry about disposing of, just plain and simple knickers. Why not give it a try?

3. Reusability

Unlike disposable products, period pants are a sustainable choice that can be used cycle after cycle. Okay, so the initial investment may seem slightly higher, but the long-term savings and environmental benefits far outweigh the costs. Imagine never having to buy single-use tampons or pads again! Which leads us to...

4. Cost-Effectiveness

Beyond the initial purchase, period pants prove to be remarkably cost-effective. Research shows that we spend £13 a month on average on menstrual products, and a further £8 on new underwear (when we bleed all over them).

With period pants you can bid farewell to the continuous expense of disposable alternatives. Investing in reusable period pants saves you money in the long run. Trust us.

5. Natural Feel

Crafted from soft, breathable fabrics, period pants offer a natural and comfortable feel against your skin. Unlike traditional single-use pads that feel uncomfortable in your knickers, they provide the freedom to move without restriction. With reusable period pants, you can navigate your day with confidence and ease. 

6. Style Variety

Period pants only come in one style, right? Wrong! You can express yourself during your period with a diverse range of styles and designs. DAME period pants in particular have a range of styles - from shorties to thongs, find the perfect fit and flair that complements your style. Period pants don't have to mean losing your individuality.

7. Preventing Emergencies

With period pants, unexpected leaks become a thing of the past. They can be used alongside tampons if you want, meaning reliability and consistent protection.  It's not only leaks, period pants reduce the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome, since you're not inserting anything into your vagina. You'll be emergency-free!

8. Reduce odour

Reusable pants are super hygienic. DAME's pants have absorbent layers that are treated with non-nano recycled silver for trusted antimicrobial odour control and durable freshness. We also use recycled silver that acts as a natural barrier against odour-causing bacteria, ensuring that you remain confidently odour-free.

9. Dive In

Period pants are all made of different fabrics, so it's worth checking with the manufacturer. But actually, many period pants are specifically designed to be swim-friendly, allowing you to enjoy the water without any worries. Whether it's a day at the beach or a poolside retreat, you can confidently dive in.

10. Liberation

Using period pants offers a sense of liberation, freeing you from the restrictions and discomfort often associated with traditional period products. With period pants, you have the freedom to go about your day without compromise, just like you would with normal underwear. Plus, and trust us on this one, they make you feel in charge of your period experience.
