6 Brands That Are Changing the Underwear Game With Period-Proof Panties

Leakproof designs made for those who deal with menstruation.

Underwear is a very personal matter — while some may prefer romantic, lacy lingerie, others may gravitate towards undergarments that are crafted for everyday comfort. For those who deal with menstruation, period-proof panties may be a practical option for making that time of the month a little more bearable.

From Knix, well-loved for its minimalist silhouettes, to Revol Undies, known for its comfy-chic designs, a number of underwear companies are making leak-resistant intimates for an inclusive size range. If you’re in the market for some protective undies, read on for six of the best period-proof underwear brands you can shop online.

Priced between $32 USD and $46 USD, each design is available in sizes ranging from XS to XL — several styles such as the Hipster and Boxer Brief even go up to 5X. The company, formerly known as Lunapads, also makes a range of sustainable menstrual care products including washable pads and liners, menstrual cups and more.
