BEST period underwear I have tried - but they fit big
I've tried other brands of period underwear (specifically boxer-briefs) in the past, and while they're effective, I find other brands clammy and hot. Not these ones -THEY ARE SO COMFORTABLE! They're the best brand I've tried, by far.
I love that they're breathable - the only impermeable section is the absorbent portion, which is generously cut so they won't leak at night.
I typically wear boxer-briefs during the day, and have a very light flow. Other brands have padding that's more absorbent than I really need, which can be uncomfortable. I love that these can be used without the insert for daytime wear, and with the insert at night.
I do have one complaint! The sizing seems off - they fit a bit big.
I took careful measurements and used the size chart: I should be between a medium according to my waist measurement, and a small according to my hips. (I know I always check reviews for sizing tips, so here are my details: I'm about 5'7" and 125lbs with an athletic build - I have narrower hips than the average woman of my height). I decided to size down to a small for a snug fit, to minimize leaks. Surprisingly, the small is pretty loose on me. I can wear them, but I need to fold the waistband over to ensure they fit snugly enough at night.
I'll definitely be ordering more when my less-preferred brands wear out, but I'll order XS next time.
This is a great product, despite my slight disappointment with the sizing. I advise anyone reading this to pay more attention to…
