Ok – so I’ve seen in a couple different posts in the past where people have mentioned having period panties. Now obviously I can tell that those are different underwear that they only wear when Aunt Flow is around but I’ve never even considered a need for something like that. I just wear the same underwear that I wear the rest of the month.
How many people have period panties? How common is this? And why don’t you just wear what you normally wear?
ETA: almost all of my underwear is bikini cut. Maybe the style one normally wears affects their likelyhood to have period panties?

I’ve honestly never heard of such a thing and wear the same underwear during my period as when I don’t. I get heavy periods and just double up on the protection, whether that’s two pads together or combining tampons with a pad.

I have them, because I suffer from heavy periods I wear a sanitary towel as well as a tampon (sorry for the detail) so I need bigger pants to what I normally wear for the sanitary towel, plus I’d rather have an accident on my period pants than my nice ones.

I do, only because I also suffer from heavy periods and I got sick of ruining all my good panties. 🙁

I don’t have specific period only underwear. I have the a bunch of dark underwear that I use during Aunt Flo but I could easily wear it on no-period days.

I try to wear dark colored underwear on my period. I frequently forget and will leak, and it’s a shame to stain cute panties.

this is a great thread lol. I sometimes wear panties that have a little bit more coverage, meaning that they’re like low cut briefs, versus the bikini panties I usually wear. I just feel better protected in case I have a heavier flow or something.

I just typically wear “full coverage” when it’s my time of the month (or in my case, I only get it every two months). So yeah, I’ll pull out the granny panties during that time because well….other cuts don’t offer as much coverage and I’m not cool with wearing a thong or anything during that. Would just make me worry about leakage/etc.

I usually just wear the same ones, I just avoid any pants/skirts that require me to wear thongs, LOL.

I do! They’re the non-sexy ones that I can put a panty liner in. My period is weird and I know the 3 day window that it’ll come, but never the extact day, so I don’t like to wear my everyday underwear in case they get a stain.

I always wear thongs, and during my period I just wear the black ones, unless it’s a lighter day, then I don’t discriminate but try to stay away from the really cute light-colored ones. I use super+ tampons and a kotex panty liner that I fold around my thong that works pretty well.

No I wear thongs all month long!
I wear tampons and have a very light period so I never leak!

I definetly have underwear that I only wear certain days of the month. They are just black full-coverage underwear. I have the world’s heaviest period and this is probably TMI but I yesterday I changed my super-plus tampon 4 times inbetween 1oclock and 5oclock. Any one else use playtex sport tampons? they have all these weird motivational sayings on the wrapper. “Never give up, You’ve got the power, Control your period don’t let it control you, Get out there and show ’em what you got, Keep your head in the game.” Seriously, they’re tampons not fortune cookies!!! Usually by day 4 I am back to wearing normal underwear again. The rest of the month I wear thongs, or lacy underwear that can’t really accomodate a huge uncomfortable pad.

I have ones that I perfer to wear when I am on my period. I 99% of the time wear a thong and I cannot stand the feeling of wearing a thong and a tampon for some reason so I have briefs for that. I try to get them at Walmart because they have cheap ones that are for like high schoolers I guess with fun things on the but so at least I feel cute in them.
