8 Sustainable Period Underwear Brands

When Aunt Flo comes a knockin’, these eco-friendly undergarments will show her who’s boss!

It’s that time of the month again, huh? No matter how light or heavy your flow is or how intense your symptoms are, we can all agree that periods aren’t fun. Oh, and don’t even get us started on the pink tax. It’s frustrating to have to buy tampons, pads, and pantiliners—and even more frustrating when you think of the negative environmental impact these items have. That’s why we love all of the brands making sustainable period underwear! If you’re unfamiliar with these undergarments, they’re designed with absorbent, breathable, and antimicrobial layers. You can wear them solo or as extra protection with other feminine hygiene products to help you experience a more eco-conscious and comfortable period.

Modibodi

Modibodi has the perfect product to support your lifestyle when Auntie Flo is in town. The brand’s sustainable period underwear line ranges from super light to maxi absorbency levels in a variety of cuts—bikinis, thongs, boyshorts, and more. Modibodi also makes period swimwear, activewear, and sleepwear. So you can keep doing the things you enjoy without worrying about leakage! Their most sustainable products are the Biodegradable Full Brief and Bikini.

Thinx

From hardcore workouts and long workdays to sleepovers and vacays, Thinx has a product for every activity! Made from sustainable materials with built-in protection for a range of flows, Thinx’s portfolio of period underwear and garments will keep you comfy all day long. Each pair of absorbent panties is made with moisture-wicking, odor-controlling, and leak-resistant technology that will save you several trips to the bathroom to check in on things down South.

With a flexible, yet supportive piece of fabric along the center, Proof’s Leakproof Hipster Underwear has the absorbency level equivalent to five tampons! The panties are composed of antimicrobial fibers that reduce odor and prevent bacterial growth. Choose your leak type, flow level, and style of choice, and let Proof do the rest!
