WORK

A confluence of 4 performance fabrics ensure the right period protection. The fabrics work together to wick the flow away from the skin, absorb the discharge, and lock any leaks, all while staying thin and odor-free.

How many hours?

On your low-flow days, it will last 12 hours, and on mid-flow days it will last 8 hours.

How many washes?

One period underwear will last 2 years if you average 3-4 washes per cycle.

How to carry it?

Used ones: Pack them in a washable leakproof bag.

Fresh ones: Pack them in a breathable cloth bag.

Gentler

On Earth

If you replace the use of at least 3 pads per cycle with the period underwear you would:

Reduce the impact of 36 single-use pads on the environment every year.

And if even 0.1% of our urban women population make the switch, 6.4 Million single-use pads will stay off from polluting our landfills every year.

FAQ

Is there any risk of Bacterial Infection or Toxic Shock Syndrome ( TSS ) from wearing menstrual underwear?

Bacterial infections are often caused because of excess damp and moist conditions. The Athlos period underwear uses a wicking fabric layer that pulls the discharge away from the skin. The discharge is further absorbed by a naturally anti-bacterial woolen layer thereby keeping you dry and reducing the risk of bacterial infections.



How long do period underwear last?

Period underwear should last just as long as any other pair of underwear. If you average 3-4 washes per cycle, a period underwear should last 2 years.

What’s a good age to start wearing period underwear?

Period underwear can be used right from adolescence when menstruation is expected to start and beyond. Leaks that happen in school can be especially embarrassing and period underwear are excellent at preventing that from happening.



Do period underwear work for heavy periods?

If you have a light or mid-flow, the Athlos period underwear should be able to replace your pads completely.
But if you have a very heavy flow, it should be used in conjunction with cups on your heavier days.

Are period panties sanitary?

Absolutely yes. Especially, if they’re cared for properly. Make sure to rinse them as soon as you are able to. If you don’t have the option to rinse them sooner, store them in a wet bag till you get the chance to rinse them. The natural wicking and anti-bacterial property of the period underwear fabric layers will ensure it stays dry and sanitary while in use.
