How Does Period Swimwear Work?

The response is a definite YES!
These period swimwear pieces look just like stylish regular swimsuits but have a hidden absorbent lining. They are perfect for a worry-free swim during light to regular flow periods, just like our period underwear which are also discreet and not bulky.

The waterproof feature of our swimwear means that you can enjoy the pool or beach without the discomfort of wearing a pad or tampon! "I have worn this product while swimming in the pool and sea. I wear it for at least 30 minutes before swimming, and because the bust support is good, I can wear it without a bra. I need proper support for my bust. I have stress incontinence and feel very confident wearing this."

The period swimsuit has been a lifesaver for me! As someone who is perimenopausal and experiencing unpredictable periods, I can finally enjoy swimming without worrying about any unexpected surprises. I had gone two months without a period and then suddenly had a week-long one, but the suit handled it perfectly. I used to avoid swimming for a few days when I was on my period and didn't want to use tampons or menstrual cups, but now I can spend up to 30 minutes in the water without any issues. This suit has given me the freedom to enjoy swimming again without any stress or anxiety.

The absorbent lining is thinner than some period pants, so it's not recommended to wear them alone on your heaviest days.

However, the gusset is antibacterial, breathable, and quick-drying. The outer fabric is treated with a water-repellent coating, as demonstrated in our video below. This helps prevent water from the pool or sea from penetrating the swimsuit.

To ensure maximum effectiveness, make sure the swimsuit fits snugly around the legs to prevent any gaping when moving.

Lining: 100%Polyester

Middle: 80%Polyester, 20%Nylon/PUL 100% Polyester

Outer: 82%Nylon, 18%Spandex

We have tested the material of our swimsuits in both sea and chlorine swimming conditions. However, we cannot be held responsible if the costume material becomes damaged due to any other activities, such as friction and/or abrasions from climbing out of the water, or marks and bobbling caused by velcro attachments from paddle boards or surfboards.

The period swimsuit has four layers, including a breathable top layer, an anti-bacterial layer, a leak proof barrier, and a super absorbent layer. These layers work together to provide maximum protection against leaks and stains during swimming or other water activities.

The period swimsuit is primarily designed for teens and tweens, who may feel more self-conscious and insecure about their periods during water activities.

However, the swimsuit is also suitable for women of all ages who want a comfortable and discreet solution for swimming and other water activities during their periods.

While the original design of the period swimsuit is in black, we also offer a low-waist version in multiple colors for our customers to choose from.

The low-waist period swimsuit is available in a variety of colors, providing a wider range of options to fit personal preferences and styles.

How To Wash?

To maintain the quality of your The Eco Women period swimming costume, washing it is a breeze. Simply wash it in cold water without using fabric softener or bleach. Using water that is hotter than 30 degrees Celsius may affect the waterproof properties of the material. Please follow the washing instructions carefully as not adhering to them may void any returns.

Yes, you can wash your period swimwear with whatever else you have to wash. There is no need to wash them separately.

It is recommended to wash period swimwear at body temperature or below, which is around 30℃.

No, it is advised to avoid using fabric softener as it can coat the fibers of the swimwear and reduce its absorbency.

Bloodstains should be washed out at body temperature or below, as washing at higher temperatures can "set" the stain and make it impossible to remove. It is also suggested to use a decent length wash cycle, around an hour, to properly clean the swimwear.

It is not recommended to tumble dry period swimwear as it can damage the fabric and reduce its lifespan. It's also suggested to avoid putting them on direct heat sources like radiators.

It is suggested to use a bio powder and Oxy type stain remover to properly clean period swimwear. "Eco" products may not be as effective and could reduce the longevity of the swimwear.
